Laser treatment is used to remove haemangiomas and telangiectasias (enlarged capillaries) from the skin. The MedArt 435 laser device used in the dermatology clinic can treat blood vessels up to 4 mm in diameter in any part of the body. A single procedure is usually sufficient to treat smaller blood vessels, while larger ones may require a repeat procedure to achieve a good result.
The appropriate treatment for varicose veins depends on the diameter and depth of the problem vessel. For smaller superficial varicose veins, non-invasive methods (including laser treatment) or sclerotherapy (injection of a sclerosing agent into the enlarged vein) are best. For larger and deeper varicose veins, endovenous radiofrequency or laser ablation is used, or glue (by inserting a catheter into a blood vessel), or the problem vessel is surgically removed (phlebectomy). Endovenous procedures and surgeries are not performed in our clinic.
