Closing blood vessels
Cracked blood vessels are often aesthetic problem. If the proper energy and wave length of the laser are used it allows the close selected blood vessel without damaging the surrounding skin. Laser Fotona Spectro SP do the deepest penetration the laser beam, which allows the destruction of a vessels of large diameter hidden deep under the skin. Thanks to the homogeneous penetration the laser has a wide spectrum of use and reduces the risk of tissue damage. The closing extended blood vessel treatment is a safe and fast way to solve the problem. Thanks to Fotona’s lasers we can perform the range of treatments in the field of aesthetic medicine and surgery.
The functioning of the laser
The laser generates intense light radius, so it’s possible to interference into the living tissue. Light that reaches the interior of the vessel is absorbed by the pigment located in red blood cells and is converted into thermal energy. Under the influence of heat the water is vaporized from the tissue. Inside only dry elements of the vessel remain, they are the walls that are collapsing and are absorbed and as a result they disappear. The treatment is not risky and does not carry with it the risk of complications and infection. It can be done at any time of the year. Removing the blood vessel can not be perform with the superficial deep veins diseases, or once their treatment has finished.
Of what does the closing blood vessels treatment consist?
This treatment is using the ND – Yag Fotona Spectro SP laser. The procedure consists of the fact that the energy of the laser wave is selectively absorbed by hemoglobin. The result of the process is a blood coagulation which causes the destruction of the cell. During the procedure, you may feel the prick at the time of shot of laser. A side effect may be bruising or edema at the site where the vassel was large. You can not expect that after the first session all the capillaries will be deleted. Sometimes it is necessary to repeat the procedure several times.
