Dilated capillaries removal – LASER ALMA HARMONY PRO XL; Nd: Yag/Dye-VL
Success rate of closing the capillaries is high.
Telangiectasias, colloquially called broken capillaries, are a common medical problem. They can occur on the face, cleavage and legs. The golden standard in the treatment of teleaniectasia is laser therapy using the phenomenon of photothermolysis, i.e. selective light energy absorption and its conversion into heat. In the case of vascular lesions, the major part of the energy ought to be absorbed by hemoglobin. The luminous energy will be changed into heat and the capillary will achieve the temperature of coagulation. As a result, the capillary dilates constrictioning and overgrowing. Depending on the location of the dilated capillaries, the appropriate laser (Nd: Yag or Dye-VL) is being chosen. Single (isolated) telangiectasia regresses right after one treatment. For larger vessels (spider veins), a series of approximately three treatments every 3-4 weeks is usually required. The effectiveness of the laser closing capillaries is significant.
• Telangiectasia (broken capillaries) on the face and legs
• Hemangiomas starry
• Hemangiomas ruby
• Legs vascular lesions
• pregnancy and breast-feeding
• fresh tan, the use of tanning creams and bronze body lotions
• active, viral and bacterial skin diseases, e.g. herpes
• vulnerability to keloids
• the use of photosensitising medications: tetracycline, doxycycline and vitamin A derivatives
COURSE OF THE TREATMENT
Via the innovational laser closing head ND:Yag/Dye-VL system, the treatment of sealing off the broken capillaries is practically painless. This treatment is performed without local anaesthesia which causes constriction of capillaries and reduces the effectiveness of the treatment. When the laser beam is exposed to the skin, a slight prick or burning may be felt. Depending on the area treated this treatment takes about 15-40 minutes.
The most common side effects of laser skin treatments are redness, swelling, itching and little scabs. The above-mentioned lesions will usually subside within a few days. Facial telangiectasia responds to laser treatment much faster than ones localized on legs.
PRE- TREATMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
Four weeks before the treatment, the use of products that increase the sensitivity of the skin should be discontinued, i.e. creams containing retinol, isotretinoin, fruit acids, vitamin C. S
Seven days before the treatment, St. John’s wort and marigold should be discontinued.
The treatment is performed on un-tanned skin.
POST- TREATMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
Directly after the treatment, the skin treated with laser may be red and swollen and the patient experiences a feeling of warmth. The above mentioned lesions persist for several days. For a month after the treatment, SPF50+ photoprotection is necessary. In addition, for a minimum of two weeks, do not use medicaments and cosmetics that increase the sensitivity of the skin to light. Avoid intense physical exercise, hot baths, use of the sauna and solarium, alcohol consumption and hot baths for a week as they result in potential capillaries dilatation.
