Telangiectasia / Spider Veins Vascular lesion correction with Fotona Laser
The National Institutes of Health estimates that 60% of all men and women suffer from some form of vein disorder. Facial spider veins are twisted purple, red, and blue vessels seen typically on face and legs. This vein abnormality is similar to varicose veins. The only difference is that varicose veins are raised, larger, and swollen blood vessels with lots of turns and twists whereas spider veins are smaller. Spider veins, the more delicate red or blue tracings that can pop up on the skin's surface like kinky spider webs, are a minor form of varicose veins and can precede development of the more unsightly variation or cause cosmetic concerns of their own. The causes of Telangiectasia are unknown, but researchers think they may be genetic, environmental, or a combination of both. It’s believed the most common causes of Telangiectasia are chronic exposure to the sun and extreme heat or cold. Sun exposure can make spider veins worse by breaking down collagen under the skin
LASER light penetrates the dermal layer of the skin and helps in collagen remodelling. Collagen is the building block of skin.

Fotona laser vascular lesion treatment
- The yellow light from the Fotona laser immediately shrinks the capillaries to provide instant cosmetic results. This happens because yellow light is readily absorbed by blood to shrink the vessel, and is achieved with very little discomfort.
- You need to consult with your clinician for an exact treatment plan. You will see immediate results; however, the type of vascular lesion and its location does affect the effectiveness of treatment.
