Treatment of rosacea redness, varicose veins and angiomas
Blood vessels present under the surface of the skin can dilate in the face or body to become visible, unsightly and seen in the form of red blotches, angiomas or varicose veins.
Laser, which targets haemoglobin, leads to selective coagulation of dilated vessels without affecting other skin elements, and therefore without causing any scarring.
Facial rosacea, vascular marks (angiomas, strawberry marks, telangiectasia) and unsightly varicose veins on the legs can therefore be treated.
Treatment requires one or more sessions with 4 to 6 week intervals in between.
The procedure is not very painful and after a session some redness, swelling and small scabs may appear which disappear within 3 to 4 days.
A maintenance session may be necessary every 1 or 2 years.
Sun protection is imperative following treatment.
