Green Vein Laser Reduction
FOTONA FACIAL VEIN REDUCTION LASER
This non-invasive treatment utilizes a long-pulse laser to effectively treat vascular lesions. The laser penetrates the skin to a depth of 5-6 mm, targeting intravascular oxyhemoglobin, the chromophore responsible for vascular lesions. This thermal damage is primarily confined to the cutaneous blood vessels.
The laser energy is absorbed by the blood in the vein, converting it into heat, which subsequently destroys the vein walls. Unlike other wavelengths that mainly affect the surface layers of lesions, Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, ensuring long-term efficacy of the treatment. The process is safe, as healthy veins continue to supply blood to the treated area, and the body’s immune system clears away the dead tissue.
Frequently Asked Questions
- How many sessions are required, and how often should they be done?
Typically, you will notice a more prominent reduction of facial spider veins after 3-5 sessions, and each treatment should be spaced at least 1 month apart according to our protocol.
- Is there any downtime after the procedure?
There is minimal downtime with some redness after the procedure. It is recommended to use SPF 50 sunblock and apply recovery cream or extra moisturizer, as laser therapy can sometimes dry the skin.
- Are there any side effects?
When performed correctly and safely, there should be no side effects like blisters, rebound hyperpigmentation, or white spots (hypopigmentation).
