What is Couperose?
Couperose is a condition when red blood
vessels and capillaries become expanded and visible on the face.
How it happens?
The walls of the capillaries expand to
accommodate more blood flow which makes them bigger and visible. In normal
circumstances the walls will contract shortly and won't be visible. In the case
of Couperose, the walls of the capillaries do not contract, they remain expanded
and the red spider-net of blood vessels remain visible.
Because the walls of the capillaries are
weak, thin and lack elasticity so they remain expanded.
What causes Couperose?
Mainly environmental factors such as
extreme heat, extreme cold, wind, sun exposure and aging. Sometimes it can be
due to hereditary factors.
Can Couperose be treated?
Yes, Lagny has developed three products
