Capillary and varicose veins treatments with laser


With the developing technologies in recent years, laser treatments have made great progress. Today, lasers are used safely in many areas. New generation lasers work with cooling systems, so it is possible to treat vascular lesions without damaging the skin. The most important feature of laser treatment is that it is fast and painless. In this regard, it does not require a recovery period.

The treatment of capillaries and varicose veins with laser offers a wide range of treatment options, from thin veins on the wings of the nose, called talenjectasia, to the treatment of larger vessels in the leg area.

Scope of application

1-Facial veins

Thin veins that appear on the wings of the nose with age or the vascular structures in the face area are examples of this situation. Such vascular lesions on the face usually occur in advanced ages. With the thinning of the skin over time, the veins begin to become evident. Laser or radiofrequency methods are used for the treatment of such veins in the face area.

2-Leg and Thigh Region Varices:

The enlargement of the veins as a result of the deterioration of the valve structure is called varicose veins.

In women, complaints increase during pregnancy and menstrual periods. Varicose veins occur 2-3 times more frequently in women than in men, and there may be genetic transmission. Varicose veins occur in 20% of all adults.

Most of the young patients do not have valvular disease, but because of some superficial veins, the veins become visible. The sides of the legs, ankle level and the back of the knee are the most frequently affected areas. This accumulation of blood appears as blue, purple or red from the outside of the skin and disturbs the person. Pain, swelling and cramps can be seen in the legs with constant pressure.

The first treatment option in the treatment of such lesions in the leg area is laser treatments. Foam sclerotherapy can also be applied if the main feeding vein that enlarges the veins is detected. In general, all vessels up to 3 mm in diameter can be treated with laser, while sclerotherapy can be included in larger vessels.

3-Vascular Masses: In some people, there may be vascular masses called angioma in the form of red dots, especially in the arms and face area. Vascular masses may also occur as a symptom of a congenital disease in some cases. Laser is used successfully in the treatment of all these lesions.

Treatment Protocol

Many methods are used to detect the cause of varicose veins. Physical examination and Doppler ultrasonography are some of them. Treatments vary according to the extent and width of varicose veins and the condition of the vein valves. Surgical methods and sclerotherapy can be applied in patients with vascular and valve insufficiency. Laser treatments and sclerotherapy can be combined in medium-sized vessels. Laser method is preferred in very thin veins.
