The current technology is more safe and efficient for the treatment of various conditions, such as rosaceae, angioma, telangiectasis and venectasia (dilated veins on legs), ecchymosis, etc.
The treatment of vascular conditions, facial telangiectasis, rosaceae, angioma, venectasia of lower members, is quite difficult in most of the cases, considering that there are few therapeutic methods that offer adequate results and not having major side-effects.
The laser procedure is one that does not require any prior preparation of the patient; it is an almost painless procedure (a slight local discomfort or a slight warmth sensation).
The post-procedure restrictions are limited and apply for maximum 1-2 days post treatment.
Several sessions are required, the average duration of a session being of a couple of minutes and the total number of pulsations is determined depending on the size of the treated anatomic area. An improvement is visible after the first session (in the case of superficial lesions) and after 3-4 sessions in the case of deep lesions (port wine stain angioma – angioma similar to a wine stain).
The total number of sessions is established by the specialist physician depending on the type of lesions and on the patient response to treatment.
For vascular lesions of the lower members, the approach is complex, starting with the scan evaluation, Doppler, further being established a therapeutic protocol that may include even the surgical approach of the major dilatations and minimally-invasive procedures, such as sclerotherapy.
The golden standard for small dilatations of the lower members is the Pulsed Dye laser therapy, with the selective absorption of energy and the subsequent sclerosing of the vein.
Transdermal vascular laser is a minimally invasive procedure based on the effect of photothermolysis (produces evaporation of haemoglobin and myoglobin in the vessel).
Haemoglobin and myoglobin in the venous wall absorb the wavelength emitted by the laser.
This procedure is for patients with telangiectasias (the blue and red millimetre strands) at the legs level.
Yes. It is repeatable, but not earlier than 3-4 weeks in the same area, as post-procedure there will be crusts at the feet level that will be detached during this time.
The patient perceives the feeling of hot burn at the action site of the laser.
Before and after the procedure, the phlebologist’s recommendation is not to be exposed to the sun for a month because there is a risk of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation in the area being treated.
Also, we recommend applying creams with re-epithelial effect to hydrate and detach these crusts as soon as possible.
These telangiectasias subjected to transdermal laser treatment disappear in the proportion of 80%. The effectiveness of treatment depends on their superficiality or depth, their strength and age.
The onset of telangiectasia is the early stage of chronic venous disease.
Even if these vascular lesions are solved by the help of minimally invasive vascular laser procedure, only phleboesthetic, prophylactic measures should be taken to prevent chronic venous disease from advancing.
