About the procedure
Dilated veins and capillaries on the legs can be successfully removed with a laser if they are up to 3 mm in diameter. For complete removal, 3-4 visits are usually enough. These are carried out at 4-week intervals. During the procedure, you may feel mild to moderate pain, which is reduced by the simultaneous use of ice packs and cooling, so that another type of anesthesia is not necessary. At the site of the larger capillaries and veines, a small point bruise remains, which persists for about 3-4 weeks.
This procedure is performed from autumn to spring.
How does it work?
When a laser beam is directed towards a vascular formation, it absorbs in the haemoglobin. This causes a heat effect. The heat coagulates the tissue and destroys the vascular lesion. In the case of small capillaries the vessel simply dissapears. When a vessel or vascular formations is bigger, a small bruise forms, which is then removed by the immune system in the following days or weeks.
Things to consider
There are no special restrictions before the procedure, but after the procedure it is necessary to avoid hot baths, saunas, and intense exposure to the sun. In the case of larger veins, we recommend wearing elastic stockings for a few days or even weeks. If you will be exposed to the sun, the skin should be treated with a high skin protection factor.
Each patient undergoes a clinical examination during which we establish the degree and size of dilated capillaries and veins as well as the condition of saphenofemoral junction. In case of venous insufficiency and presence of varicose veins we recommend surgical treatment.
Medicina Volovec has been using laser technology for over 20 years, which is why we are among the clinics with the longest experience in Slovenia in this field.
