Vascular Skin Lesion Removal

If you have broken capillaries, dilated capillaries, spider veins, telangiectasia, ruby points or cherry angiomas, you definitely have treatment options at highly equipped medical spa in Calgary, LiLyDermis Centre.



Telangiectasias are more common on nose, cheeks, chin, decollete, legs and feet. Cherry angiomas or ruby points are common on neckline, abdomen, chest, and back.



Capillaries are the smallest vessels within the circulatory system. In healthy skin the capillaries are not normally visible to the naked eye. Dilated capillaries or broken capillaries are defined as permanently dilated small blood vessels, in length from a few millimeters to a few centimeters. They may be on their own or star shaped or in plain networks (couperose).




As we age, the capillary walls lose their elasticity and become permanently distended. A number of factors may lead to capillary dilation including:

  1. Heredity
  2. External factors such as sun exposure, saunas, hot tubs, and steam rooms, and aggressive comedone extractions
  3. Hormonal
  4. Health conditions such as high blood pressure and rosacea
  5. Medication such as vasodilators and oral contraceptives
  6. Weather conditions
  7. Other causes such as alcohol, caffeine, hot beverages, spicy food, physical fatigue, and severe activity

At LiLyDermis Calgery Centre we offer Thermo-Coagulation that is a minimally invasive technique for the treatment of vascular skin lesions such as broken or dilated capillaries, telangiectasia, spider veins, and ruby points or cherry angiomas.



Most patients find the treatment to be quick, with minimal discomfort. During the treatment, a single use hair-thin probe is placed on the lesions, and a micro burst of high frequency energy heats the vessels, coagulating the blood and collapsing the vein wall. A treatment session can take 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
