Visible skin dilated small blood vessels (capillaries) are usually found on the face and all over her body, giving the skin a reddish appearance.

Although dilated capillaries do not pose much of a problem in terms of health, the procedure of laser treatment of capillaries is widely used to eliminate the aesthetic issues.

Which Laser is Used in Capillaries Treatment?

In capillaries treatment Nd: YAG type laser beams are used. Nd : YAG(1064 nm) laser beams focus on hemoglobin. Deformation (coagulation) of capillaries provides their treatment.

The Capillary Disorders Where Treatment is Most Frequently Applied

  • Redness around nose and cheeks
  • Rosacea
  • Port-wine stains

Causes of Capillary Disorder

There might be several factors that cause the appearance of dilated capillaries: пenetic predisposition, solar radiation, post-pregnancy, alcohol or excess estrogen.

Treatment of Rosacea / Rose Disease

Rosaceal disease appears in upper skin layer as intense redness due to enlarging of capillary vessels close to the skin surface. Depending on its severity, Rosacea may cause lack of self confidence in patients, adversely affecting the quality of life. Many methods are used in Rosacea disease treatment. Topical creams, oral taken antibiotics, laser systems can be considered. Treatment with a laser is directed at the capillaries, which have caused the disease. This treatment is more effective than all the others.

Port-Wine Stain Treatment

Port-wine stains or birthmarks occur, as a rule, immediately after birth. Pinkish in the beginning, stains become dark red or purple color in the following years. Laser significantly reduces the problem, but is unable to provide 100% result from the treatment. Starting treatment at an early age increases the success of treatment.

Session Duration and Number of Sessions

On average, sessions last for 15-30 minutes.

In capillary vessel and port-wine stain disease treatments generally 1-3 sessions with 4-6 months’ intervals can be sufficient, and the size of stain determines the number of sessions.

Advice that should be followed after the treatment

Light burning and redness of the skin, and scab formation can be experienced after the treatment. Therefore:

- For several weeks, the patient should not be exposed to sunlight or visit a solarium, and if the sun cannot be avoided, a cream with a high sun protection factor must be used.

- Utmost attention should be paid to water temperature in the shower; water should be as cool as it is possible for the patient to bear.
