Laser capillary removal

What is capillary removal?

Laser capillary removal is an extremely fast, efficient and non-invasive procedure that gives excellent results in vascular lesions in all areas of the body, including the face, legs, arms and abdomen.Capillary cracking can be genetic but also due to a variety of life circumstances – for example, during pregnancy or older age, since it is a progressive phenomenon that is usually augmented with age.However, laser can remove all pacific veins regardless of age and type of skin, throughout the year and, most of all, without the need to wear elastic socks after treatment.However, it should be noted that this procedure does not treat varicose veins as well, but only painless red and blue ones with a size up to 2 mm.

Patient preparation

Before the surgery it is necessary to carry out a consultation in the Superiora Polyclinic, where the physician will determine which capillaries can be treated and how many treatments will be needed for the desired result, with the warning that skin  should not be sun burned.This is also an opportunity to remind the physician of possible chronic illnesses, allergies and medicines used in continuity. Before the treatment, remove all traces of cosmetic products and, depending on the area, carefully shave.

The procedure

For laser removal of some larger capillaries, the skin must be cooled, followed by laser treatment. Due to the action of the laser beam, coagulation or destruction of the capillary wall occurs. The procedure is not painful, but it may be uncomfortable, with a feeling like a scuffle. It is possible to use a local anesthetic in more sensitive patients. Discomfort or possible pain disappears immediately after treatment, which usually lasts for a few minutes.

The first results are visible immediately, and at least about one month after the treatment.

Recovery process and helpful tips

Immediately after the treatment may occur transient, more pronounced redness or swelling, and in rare cases hyperpigmentation that disappears after a few weeks.

The patient can immediately return to their daily activities, avoiding more demanding exercise and more difficult physical activity within the next hour. It is also recommended to avoid sunbathing for the next week and use sunscreen cosmetics with the highest factor.
