Telangiectasias or spider veins are small dilated blood vessels near the skin. They can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, and chin. They can also develop on the legs, specifically on the upper thigh, below the knee joint, and around the ankles. They are caused by the spontaneous formation of new vessels caused by direct trauma, alterations in blood irrigation, or inherited factors.

This problem can affect a person’s social life. Patients with telangiectasias avoid going to the beach or any other places where they have to show their legs. When appearing on the face skin, they can only be concealed by using makeup.

Conventional treatment of telangiectasias

There are multiple treatments that improve skin appearance when superficial blood vessels appear. Sclerotherapy has become the most used treatment. It is really effective, but it requires several sessions to control telangiectasias. Besides, it is not unusual that spider veins form back after one or two years.

Everyday, science offers new technologies that provide more effective results and more comfort to patient during treatment. With this in mind, specialist doctor will always be looking state-of-the-art technology.

New treatment options

A new technique has revolutionized treatment of telangiectasias. It is called “percutaneous focalization” of affected tissue with a Diode Laser equipment. Telangiectasias and superficial vascular injuries can be treated by using Diode Laser energy liberation system by means of a hand light energy focalization tool which releases energy in wavelengths from 980nm, in near infra-red, which is well absorbed by hemoglobine, in skin depths from 0.2 to 0.4mm.

Laser percutaneous focalization system has a second system that preserves the upper layer of skin by causing the light beam to blur when it gets to the epidermis, so it is more comfortable for the patient.

During treatment, spider veins disappear instantly.

This equipment is unique in Colombia, and now it is in Cali, and available to you.

What are the advantages of using this Laser equipment?

With this equipment, procedure can be made in doctor’s office, with topic (cream) anesthesia. Procedure takes only 20 minutes and recovery is totally painless. No medical incapacity is required and you can go back to your daily activities immediately. Most important, results are permanent and definitive.
