Blood vessels

How does the laser therapy work with the KTP-laser?
A precise dose of green laserlight energy is delivered to each vein. The green light is absorbed by the blood vessels, but not the surrounding tissue. This is called selective photecoagulation. E.g you can treat without damaging the sourronding skin. The heat absorption causes a coagulation of the blood vessel, which is then absorbed by the body. This works best if the skin itself doesn´t contain to much pigment, then the skin will also be heated.

Can all bloodvessel/spiders be treated?
In general most of the problems with red color on skin can be succesfulla treated, such as diiferent kind of vessel and spiders, red nose, gorbatjov stain, portwine stain etc. The method works best on thin vessels in the face. Bloodvessels on the leg with a diameter less than 0.5 mm works very good. For vessels with greater diameter, the best way is to combine with injection treatment.

How long does the treatment take?
After some preperations one single vessel of 2.3 cm takes less than a minute. Legs and other large areas should be individually estimated, with consideration how close the vessels are.

Preperations before the treatment?
The skin should be as white as possible. Dark skin contains a lot of dark pigment. and then the skin will be heated as well, and not only the vessel. Thats why one should be carefull with sunbathing before treatment. This also applys to different skin lotions such as brown without sun.

Is it enough with one treatment?
Yes sometimes, Depending on how big the vessel is, the spread, depth and where it is located, treatment times differ. For thin vessels in the face, normal is 1-2 times. For thicker vessels on the leg, 2-3 times could be enough.
How long time between the treatments?
The skin should be full healed when the next treatment is don. Normally after 6-8 weeks.
