Laser removal of blood vessels

Vascular skin lesions (e.g. haemangiomas, “wine stains”), dilated capillaries, skin redness – these are mostly aesthetic problems that causing great discomfort. The most effective way to overcome them is laser treatment.

At “Sapiegos klinika,” dilated capillaries and vascular formations are treated using some of the most innovative lasers, including the yellow wavelength “QuadroStar PRO,” the diode laser “MeDioStar NeXT,” lasers from the U.S. manufacturer CANDELA MEDICAL such as “GentleMax PRO,” and the cutting-edge “VBeam Perfecta” pulsed dye laser. This laser offers wide variety of treatment spot sizes and distance gauges, allowing for the removal of even the smallest formations, even in the most sensitive areas of the face and body, thanks to its numerous advantages and versatility. All these lasers meet the latest standards in the treatment of vascular lesions such as: telangiectasias, couperose, haemangiomas, wine stains, etc. One of main lasers characteristics, which are appraised by laser dermatology specialist – is maximum absorption of haemoglobin. Thanks to the integrated cooling systems, even large areas of skin can be treated safely, without pain or side effects.

About the procedure

During the capillary removal procedure, laser beams are directed at the damaged blood vessel and absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood. This immediately heats the blood up. The heat causes inflammation in the inner wall of the blood vessel, which starts to swell and gradually (depending on the the blood vessels radios) leads to occlusion – the blood vessel closure.

Capillaries can vary in diameter and colour, so at “Sapiegos Clinic” we use three laser combination for different types of blood vessels, while no single laser can remove capillaries of all type and depth.

Each laser beam has its own colour, i.e. a characteristic wavelength. The “QuadroStarPRO” yellow-wave laser (wavelength 577 nm) is used for superficial dilated red blood vessels. While it is well absorbed by bloods haemoglobin, it is poorly absorbed by water. Because skin mostly contains water, the laser only treats reddened skin while keeping the surrounding area around the capillaries cool and undamaged. Thus, there is still minimal risk of damage to nearby tissues remaining.

The “MeDioStar NeXT” diode laser (wavelengths 800 and 950 nm) is excellent for removing blue blood vessels, also is effective at removing small haemangiomas and pyogenic granulomas.

The “Nd:YAG” laser integrated in the “GentleMax PRO” laser has a longer wavelength (1 064 nm), which allows it to penetrate deeper into the skin and affect deeper vascular formations (e.g. haemangiomas) and dilated capillaries (telangiectasias).

The “VBeam Perfecta” pulsated dye laser (with wavelengths of 595nm or 1064nm) offers a wide range of treatment possibilities because anything with color can be addressed: capillaries, angiomas, bruises, lightened scars, wart removal, and more. Most patients notice immediate results after treatment with this laser, and it can be effectively used for various skin types.

Am I a suitable candidate?

If you suffer from dilated capillaries, skin redness, vascular lesions on the face and other parts of the body, then laser removal is the right procedure for you. Here at “Sapiegos Clinic”, before each procedure, the doctor will assess the treatment areas, discuss future results and other important issues related to follow-up care at home.

Why choose us?

  • Effective procedures are performed even with four different types of lasers: yellow wavelength, diode, Nd:YAG, and pulsed dye lasers.
  • The treatments are carried out by professional doctors with at least 12 years of experience.
  • Fast and safe procedure. Easy healing period.
  • Excellent aesthetic results. No need to mask faces dilated capillaries.
  • Before the procedure

  • During the procedure

  • After the procedure

We recommend avoiding exposing areas, to be treated to ultraviolet (sun exposure or solarium) for at least 4 weeks prior to the dilated blood vessels or capillaries removal procedure.

If you are taking anticoagulants, i.e. blood thinners such as Orfarin, Aspirin, you must stop taking them at least 3 days before the procedure.

The light pulse emitted by the laser produces a mild sensation of heat and tingling, which is a sign of effective treatment. This way blood vessels and capillaries are removed without causing any side effects. Immediately after the treatment, the treated area is cooled briefly (15 minutes) with cold packs.

The blood vessels or capillaries laser removal procedure, depending on the size of the lesions, lasts from a few to several minutes. After the procedure, the skin may become red or swollen, sensation of heat may occur, which will subside within 24 hours.

After laser removal of capillaries or vascular formations, we recommend that you cool the treated area until the heating and tingling sensations subside.

Avoid direct or intense sun exposure (solarium) at the treatment site for at least 6 weeks. If you must spend prolonged periods of time outside – use sunscreen (at least SPF 50).

You should also avoid vigorous exercise, hot bathing, saunas for at least 5 days after the treatment.

Avoid alcohol, spicy condiments, or similar products as they promote skin redness and the appearance of capillaries.

Treatments always include risk.

This treatment usually has few complications

Depending on the size of the lesion, after the treatment your skin may become red, swollen and feel hot. Scabs or blisters may form – don’t touch them, just disinfect.

Sometimes pigmentation changes may occur (the treated area may become lighter or darker compared to the surrounding skin), but this usually lasts a few weeks – months.

In very rare cases, scars may remain.

    Your „Sapiegos klinika“

    Is laser removal of vascular lesions scarless?
    Scarring is very rare after laser vascular and capillary removal procedures. Redness or swelling of the skin after the procedure disappears within 24 hours, so it is a short-term change.
    Can former vascular formations recur?
    In most cases, removed vascular formations or capillaries do not recur, but the body's predisposition to redness, as well as the lifestyle, is very important. So, with time, new vascular formations and dilated capillaries may appear. Then again, the laser is always an indispensable helper.
    How many treatments will I need for the result?
    The result depends on the nature, size, location, colour, and diameter of the capillaries. Usually, from 1 to 4 treatments are needed.
    Can vascular lesions be removed in summer?
    It is best to plan these procedures during the cold season. During the procedure the skin mustn’t be inflamed. After the procedure to avoid hyperpigmentation, it is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and to use sunscreen (at least SPF 50).
    Is the procedure painful?
    During the procedure, you may feel heat and tingling sensations. Cooling the affected area reduces discomfort.
