What are Varicose Veins and Spider veins ?
Telangiectasia, the medical term for spider veins and broken capillaries, may appear anywhere on the face, typically around nose or under the eyes. Most varicose veins develop near the surface of the skin. Deeper varicose veins can’t be seen but might cause the skin above them to swell, or become darker or hard. In general there are three types of veins in the legs (called superficial veins, deep veins or perforating veins) and varicose veins represent enlarged superficial veins.
What causes Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?
The causes of spider veinson the face may differ from the causes on the legs or other areas. The red or bluish threads are injured veins or capillaries. Spider veins are usually harmless, but some people have a cosmetic concern over the condition. Spider Veins develop from a Venous Deficiency.
The deficiency comes from a back-flow of blood in the veins; the pressure causes damage to the vessel walls. Prolonged inflammation, high blood pressure and obesity are some of the medical causes for venous deficiency.
An answer to painful, ugly and unsightly veins with the Diode Laser for Vascular Lesions.
The high efficient 980nm wavelength laser is absorbed by haemoglobin.Diode Laser is a non-invasivelaser procedure performed here at EXECUTIVE HAIR , Mooloolaba. It is used to treat superficial varicose veins and venous insufficiency.
The non-invasive and extremely small laser bean emitted by fibre will work only on the angiotelectasis. The heat energy from the laser damages the walls of the veins, which effectively closes the refluxing (insufficient) vein. The closed vein loses its source of blood and dies.
A scab will form and eventually will fall off and clear. A single treatment is required by area, but sometimes more than one laser session is needed. They are scheduled every 6 to 12 weeks
Before the treatment a numbing cream is recommended 30minutes earlier.
