Treating and Concealing Telangiectasias

Those little blood vessels are called Telangiectasias. They typically occur in clusters and can be found anywhere on the body, though most often on the face near the nose, cheeks, and chin. What can you do about these unsightly clusters? There are no topical cosmetic products that remove or reduce Telangiectasias, however, your dermatologist can use various forms of light/light therapy to remove them.

If lasers aren't the right option for you, there are some topical products that can help make Telangiectasias less noticeable. These clusters of blood vessels become more visible with age as skin thickness declines. With strong antiaging properties, Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs) help build the skin's matrix, making skin appear thicker and more elastic, reducing the visibility of Telangiectasias. In fact, using NeoStrata Ultra Moisturizing Face Cream, a product formulated with Polyhydroxy Acids, has been shown to reduce the appearance of Telangiectasias associated with Rosacea when combined with the topical medication azelaic acid better than using the medication alone.

If you're looking for immediate coverage, use CoverBlend Multi-Function Concealear to conceal Telangiectasias. This opaque concealer contains the Polyhydroxy Acid Gluconolactone to help build the skin's matrix while you cover and conceal the redness.
