The vessels shrink when heated and a visible effect can be seen immediately. The Alma long pulse 1064nm Neodymium-Yag-Laser we use is considered one of the most effective lasers for the treatment of spider veins.
Laser treatment currently only makes sense for the finest varices of spider veins and represents an alternative method to conventional sclerotherapy when spider veins are too fine or respond poorly to treatment.
Experience has shown that 2-6 laser treatments are necessary for spider veins, depending on blood volume and expansion of the vessels.
By injecting a sclerosing agent into the spider veins, a local inflammatory reaction is produced which is not noticeable to the customer. This leads to an adhesion of the vein walls and the spider veins disappear. With this method, the spider veins must be large enough for the treating doctor to sclerotize them with a cannula. Temporary slight pain at the puncture site may occur. A burning sensation may also occur. After the procedure it is necessary to wear a compression bandage or compression stocking. In addition, unsightly brown spots may appear on the skin.
Large-volume vessels are sclerotised or foam sclerotised using a specific substance of varying concentration. Foam sclerotherapy, the most modern procedure in vein therapy, has again led to improved results and a reduction in the rate of side effects.
