Red or bluish veins on your face, calves, thighs or elsewhere are undoubtful signs that you probably suffer from an insufficient supply of blood to the skin. If you are plagued with this cosmetic problem, you can have the spider veins removed by laser.
The method of vein removal
Abnormal veins are removed by a high-voltage blood vessel laser. The laser beam is precisely targeted at the required spot where it reacts with haemoglobin and the reacting heat removes the undesirable veins up to the width of 2 mm.
Thanks to the precise targeting of the beam, the adjacent tissue is not affected. The laser appliance is usually equipped with so-called dynamic cooling of skin which prevents scabs and other skin injuries.
Preparing for Procedure
It is necessary to consult the surgeon before the procedure.
The surgeon may test the efficiency of the laser method on a small spot of skin during the session. It will help him/her to estimate the resulting effect of the procedure and won’t let you spend your money unnecessarily.
In case of more extensive symptoms, such as hemangioms, varicose veins or ignis, it is necessary to repeat the procedure several times.
Procedure for Children
After the Procedure
The treated place will be slightly inflamed after the procedure but will turn normal again in several minutes or hours.
It is vital to avoid sun tanning after the procedure and to use sun-block lotions (SPF 40 – 100).
