ALL ABOUT VEINS AND VESSELS

WHAT ARE VEINS?

Vascular lesions such as birthmarks, rosacea, spider veins, varicose veins, and telangiectasia arise from a wide range of natural and environmental sources including photodamage, genetic makeup, and the natural aging process. They can vary in size, shape, and prevalence in a given area.

HOW DOES VEIN LASER TREATMENT WORK?

For vein laser treatment, laser energy penetrates skin, targets blood and eliminates blood and shrinks vessel/vein without affecting or damaging the surrounding skin tissue. This is an ideal treatment for sufferers of rosacea, as the laser energy will painlessly shrink and reduce the red blood vessels causing the skin to appear red and irritated. What the patient will be left with is even skin tone, and a significant (sometimes full) reduction in visible red blood vessels. As with many laser services, multiple treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results.

 This can be more or less difficult depending on each patient’s individual characteristics such as skin colour. Many devices are limited in their utility because the different parameters cannot be adjusted independently (if at all). Understandably, vein laser treatment of darker skin is more challenging due to the higher concentration of melanin in the skin as a competing chromophore; in those cases treatment may be too painful or cause burning.
