In our clinic, the treatment of red and purple capillaries in the face and legs is performed with laser and radiofrequency methods. Depending on the multiplicity of capillaries and the localization area, the treatment may take several sessions. The most important thing in treatment is to take preventive measures. The patient should not stand for a long time, the legs should be kept up while resting and sleeping. Elastic compression stockings must be worn. Treatment is usually requested for cosmetic purposes. Treatment methods that connect the veins and surgically remove the veins can be used. Removal of varicose veins (vein stripping) is a difficult procedure and should be preferred in patients with severe pain and ankle wounds. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia, an incision is made in the groin and ankle, a wire-like instrument is inserted into the vein and the enlarged vein is pulled out through these incisions. Then these small incisions are sutured surgically. In addition, substances that sclerosing (destroying) the vessel can be injected (sclerotherapy) with the help of an injector. This method is applied while the patient is standing. After the procedure, a tight elastic bandage is wrapped around the legs. In some cases, stripping and sclerotherapy can be done together; While some veins are removed, some are injected with a sclerosing substance.
CAPITAL VESSEL TREATMENT
With a laser light source absorbed by the red, the heat is concentrated in the target tissue, the veins, and thus the vein becomes pale.
When will the treatment results be seen?
Treatment results are usually seen from the first treatment. But exactly 2-3 sessions of application may be required. The number of treatment sessions depends on the depth and thickness of the varicose veins. The pre-treatment doctor’s examination determines the necessary treatment plan for maximum results.
Is the treatment painful?
Some patients may experience mild discomfort, while others may experience more discomfort. Some sensitive people may need to use local anesthetic creams prior to treatment.
