VARICOSE VEINS AND ROSACEA

VARICOSE VEINS AND ROSACEA

Vascular lasers are used to treat:

Facial:

  • Rosacea

Lower limbs:

  • Varicose veins telangiectasia (small blue or violet coloured veins)
  • Non-varicose veins

As well as:

  • Angioma
  • Ruby angioma

Vessels can sometimes be removed in a single session, but generally requires three treatment sessions.

The treatment is not entirely painless but does not require convalescence.

It is also a means of avoiding the need for painful injections.

The light impulse coagulates the blood in the vein and thus destroys the varicosity without leaving any skin lesions or involving any complications.

Lasers have been used for dermatological treatment for over thirty years; vascular lasers were amongst the first to be used in this way.

 

WHAT IS A VASCULAR LASER

A source of energy that emits light of a specific wavelength that is absorbed by

the haemoglobin in the red blood cells. The light is transformed into heat which causes the calls of the vessel to harden over the following weeks.

The Yag 1064 nm laser if the most effective for this type of treatment.

THE MAIN INDICATIONS

Primarily rosacea, a very common condition which is the result of the dilation of the blood vessels in the skin of the centre of the face. Especially the red blood vessels of the nose.

Ruby angioma, which may appear anywhere on the body.

Red (of a diameter of less than 0.5mm) and blue (between 0.5 and 2mm) telangiectasia on the legs, for which hardening injection treatment is often impossible. In all cases this is a viable alternative to treatment involving needles.

TREATMENT OF VARICOSITIES

A source of energy that emits light of a specific wavelength that is absorbed by

the haemoglobin in the red blood cells. The light is transformed into heat which causes the calls of the vessel to harden over the following weeks.

The Yag 1064 nm laser if the most effective for this type of treatment.

SIDE EFFECTS

In most cases there are no side effects, apart from a slight localised reddening and swelling of the skin which will last for a few days, blister may sometimes appear.

The larger blood vessels may blacken and be painful for some time.

If scabs appear the doctor may prescribe moisturising healing cream.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation may occur on darker skin types which will disappear with time.
