Capillaries are the enlargement and enlargement of fine vessels in diameter and become visible as a thin line from the skin surface. Sometimes it can be seen as a capillary enlargement in the appearance of skin moles. Although it is most seen on the face and legs, it can be located in any part of the body. It is very common in society. It usually occurs in fair- skinned people.
Why do capillaries form?
Capillary complaints in the facial area may be due to sensitive skin structure, damage from sun rays, rosacea disease, metabolic and rheumatic diseases, excessive estrogen, alcohol, chronic cortisone use, trauma or genetic diseases. After nasal surgery, there may be an increase in capillaries in the nose. In the legs, it is caused by the genetically inability of the veins to carry the blood in the body to the heart effectively enough, the pooling of blood, especially in the legs, because of
gravity, and the thickening of these vessels over time. It is structurally more common in women. Increased temperature,standing too much, prolonged sitting with legs hanging down increase the formation of capillaries.
Why should capillaries be treated?
If the capillaries are not treated, the capillary enlargement will not go away on its own. Capillaries on the face can causeskin sensitivity, red spots, and facial redness. They can cause pain in the legs.
How do lasers destroy capillaries?
The iron and oxygen-carrying structures in the blood in the vein are the target of the laser. The resulting heat destroys the vein, and the remnants of the vein are excreted by the body.
How is capillary treatment done with laser?
During the procedure, laser light is thrown along the capillary line. The type and dose of the thrown laser is determined according to the color and diameter of the capillary. The temporary disappearance and discoloration of the vessels during the treatment means that the laser is effective.
How many sessions does laser capillary treatment take?
The number of sessions and the results of those who have capillary treatment vary according to the type, thickness, location and cause of the capillary. In the treatment of capillary vessels similar to moles, called Spider angioma, results are usually obtained in one or two sessions. However, capillary vessel treatments, which are commonly seen on the face, require at least 4-6 sessions. Session intervals in facial capillary treatments should be at least 3 weeks. Treatment results
begin to appear better after the second or third session. The thin capillaries on the side of the nose should be expected to lighten, not disappear. Thick veins disappear easily. Even if the capillaries on the nose are easily affected by the laser, their disappearance may require long sessions.
When does the effect of laser capillary treatment appear?
Treatment results begin to appear better after the second or third session. The thin capillaries on the side of the nose should be expected to lighten, not disappear. Thick veins disappear easily. Even if the capillaries on the nose are easily affected by the laser, their disappearance may require long sessions. In those with widespread skin redness, using surface and deep-acting lasers together or alternately provides better results in a shorter time. In people with severe facial
redness and extensive capillaries, maintenance sessions every 3-6 months after the end of the treatment prevents the recurrence of the disease and provides better results.
What are the side effects of laser capillary treatment?
After the laser capillary treatment, there is a slight pinkness on the face. It usually passes within half a day. The bruise only occurs with the short pulse PDL laser, not the others. If there are very common capillaries, a slight edema lasting half a day can be seen. In general, crusts and wounds are not expected. Rarely, if the Nd:YAG laser is applied at high doses by those who are not experienced in large vessels, it may cause scarring. Under normal conditions and at appropriate
doses, no scar is expected with Nd:YAG laser.
