Spider Veins Laser Removal
The non-invasive vascular lesion treatment utilizes a long-pulse Nd:YAG laser (FOTONA SP DYNAMIS) to effectively treat vascular lesions with minimal downtime. The laser penetrates to a depth of 5-6 mm into the skin, allowing for precise and targeted treatment.
The treatment works by targeting the chromophore for vascular lesions, which is intravascular oxyhemoglobin. The laser energy is absorbed by the blood in the vein, converting it into heat and subsequently destroying the vein walls.
Unlike other wavelengths that mainly affect the surface layers of the lesion, the Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, ensuring long-term efficacy. The process is safe as healthy veins will still supply blood to the treated area, and the body’s immune system clears away the damaged tissue.
Frequently Asked Questions
- How many sessions do I need to do? How frequent in between sessions?
A more prominent reduction of facial spider veins is usually seen after 3-5 sessions. The interval between each treatment should be at least 1 month apart, following our recommended protocol.
- Any downtime after this procedure?
There is minimal downtime with some redness after the procedure. I would advise using sunblock SPF 50, recovery cream, and extra moisturizer, as laser therapy can cause dryness to the skin.
- Any side effects?
As long as the treatment is performed correctly and safely, you should not experience side effects like blisters, rebound hyperpigmentation, or white spots (hypopigmentation).
