Laser Vein Removal is also highly effective laser treatment for rosacea, venous lake on lip area, poikiloderma on neck area and cherry angiomas on body areas. The Cynosure Yag Laser targets facial veins with energy pulses leaving the surrounding area untouched. The hemoglobin inside the vein absorbs the energy and causes the blood to vaporise and the vein simply collapses. The treated blood vessels will in time disappear naturally as the body dissolves the vein fragments away. Vascular skin concerns such as facial veins commonly referred to as spider veins, thread veins and broken capillaries are often a result of your genetics, sun exposure and other factors such as rosacea. Thread vein removal laser treatment is most effective for small to medium size thread veins.
Laser Treatment for Thread Veins
Vein Laser Treatments | Cynosure
Thread veins, also known as telangiectasia or spider veins, occur when capillaries the smallest of blood vessels become permanently dilated and rupture, spreading blood to other capillaries and leaving a fine red or blue tree-like appearance just under the skin. A light is focussed on the target area, and as the light is obstructed by the blood vessel, it causes a leaf reaction which coagulates the blood and destroys the protein in the wall of the vessel. Do not wax or thread hair from the treatment area. Do not have electrolysis on the area. Do not use depilatory creams on the treatment area Do not bleach on the treatment area. Do not use sunbeds for 30 days before or after treatment. Do not sun bathe for 30 days before or after treatment.
