Complaints of Spider Veins and Varicosis
Complaints of spider veins in the facial area may appear as an increased appearance of thin (0.1-1 mm in diameter) veins. Widespread broken capillary vessels in the face are enlarged veins close to the skin surface, which become visible in people with sensitive skin as well as rosacea patients. This condition is most commonly seen on the cheeks, around the nose, and chin.
Congenital port-wine stains (PWS); spider web-shaped vascular formations in the face (spider angiomas); vascular moles (cherry angiomas); hemangiomas, and varicose veins that can be located in any place from the ankle to the thigh region are all vascular structures that we can treat with laser.
We treat all kinds of vascular lesions and varicose veins at our clinic, by using on the skin using long pulse Nd-YAG Laser or BBL Laser.
How do we treat ?
We can treat capillary vessels, hemangioma and varicosis with 1064 nm long pulse Nd-YAG Laser or BBL Laser. Capillary vessel area is screened with laser light. A few applications may be necessary. Although burning, stinging sensation arises during the procedure, it is tolerated well by the majority of the patients. The procedure performed in the face area takes approximately 10 minutes the treatment is completed in maximum 3 sessions. The treatment of the leg area takes some time depending on the extensity and intensity of the vessels and takes maximum 30-40 minutes.
Post Treatment Period
On the first day, redness, purple-grey colour can be seen in the application area or the lesion may completely disappear. A crust also forms within a few days in cases of spider veins. The crust falls within 7-14 days and the pink, fresh skin shows up. If the lesion has not completely disappeared, 2 more sessions are required. 3 sessions (once a month) may be necessary for capillary vessels. Epithelizing or steroid cream can be used after the procedure. We certainly recommend our patients to protect themselves from exposure to the sun after the procedure. The application is intended for treatment. Recurrence risk of the vascular lesion in the treated area is very low.
