Many people suffer from red or purple blood vessels on the nose or cheeks, which are commonly called spider veins or thread veins. In reality these blood vessels are not veins but usually dilated capillaries.
Broken capillaries are part of the aging process, can be caused by over exposure to the sun or you may simply have a family predisposition to them. Most people feel their dilated/broken capillaries compromise their appearance and confidence.
Laser treatments are the treatment of choice for treating broken capillaries and spider veins on the face and nose. These can also be used on spider and small veins on the legs and body for patients who have not responded to sclerotherapy and also have light coloured skin.
How does it work?
Fotona SP Dynamis offers long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser which is the perfect solution for treating broken capillaries, as well as other vascular lesions such as haemangioma and port-wine stains. The energy from the laser is absorbed by the blood in the vessel, converted it into heat and the vessel walls are subsequently destroyed. In comparison with other wavelengths, which mainly affect the surface layers of a lesion, Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is important for ensuring the long-term efficacy the treatment. This process is perfectly safe as other healthy veins supply blood to the treated area and the body’s immune system clears away the dead tissue just as with a bruise.
How many sessions are required?
We usually recommend 1 to 3 sessions for the best results. This depends on the diagnosis and the size of the vessels. Results may vary between individuals.
Is laser vein/capillaries removal result permanent?
In most cases, the appearance of the vessels will be completely eliminated. However, the development of the new vessels cannot be prevented, these may require further treatment in the distant future.
Is this treatment painful?
Most patients experience minimal discomfort. Mild stinging sensation might be felt when laser energy hits on the skin. Numbing cream can be applied prior to the procedure to make it more comfortable.
What shall I expect following the treatment?
Most of the time the vessels are shut down immediately after the treatment. Occasionally the treated area will be slightly swollen, reddish and tender for a few days. Avoid any harsh skin cleansers and the use of sunscreen is essential.
Varicose veins are large, raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn through the skin, much like tree branches. They usually develop in the legs. Spider veins are mini versions of varicose veins, often red, purple, and blue in colour, with the appearance of a spider web, hence the name. They can be found on legs, chest, or even face. Heredity, overweight issues, pregnancy, and occupations that involve long hours of standing can cause varicose or veins. What We Can Do: - Sclerotherapy – Injection to constrict the vessels, turning them into scar tissues and collapse, eventually fades with time - Dual Yellow Light - Gentle Max Pro - V Beam - Mini Gentle YAG
