LASER TREATMENT FOR SPIDER VEINS (TELANGIECTASIAS)

Telangiectasias are visible, widened blood vessels on the skin, commonly referred to as spider veins. They become more common as people age, with an estimated 30%-60% of adults having them.

Telangiectasis

Spider veins, also known as Telangiectasis, are small, damaged veins that can occur on the legs or face. They are rarely uncomfortable or damaging, but some people may choose to treat them for cosmetic reasons.

Spider veins can be blue, purple, or red and can take the form of thin lines, webs, or branches. They’re sometimes known as “spider veins” because of their fine and weblike appearance. They are also known as thread veins by some people.

Telangiectasis are widespread in high-traffic locations (such as the lips, nose, eyes, fingers, and cheeks). They can cause discomfort and are unappealing to some people. Many people opt to have them taken out.

The vessel is removed by inflicting harm to it and pushing it to collapse or scar. This decreases the visibility of red marks or patterns on the skin.

While telangiectasia is normally harmless, it might be an indication of a serious condition. Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), for example, is a rare genetic disorder that creates life-threatening telangiectasia. HHT-induced telangiectasia develop in critical organs such as the liver rather than the skin. They may explode, resulting in extensive bleeding (hemorrhages).

SYMPTOMS OF SPIDER VEINS (Telangiectasia)

Telangiectasis can be uncomfortable, but they aren’t usually dangerous, but some people don’t like the way they look. They appear gradually but can be exacerbated by health and beauty items that irritate the skin, such as abrasive soaps and sponges. Among the Symptoms are :
  • pain (related to pressure on venules)
  • itching
  • threadlike red marks or patterns on the skin
  The symptoms of HHT include:
  • frequent nosebleeds
  • port-wine stain birthmark
  • shortness of breath
  • seizures
  • small strokes

TORONTO LASER TREATMENT FOR SPIDER VEINS

Laser treatment can be highly efficient in reducing the look of telangiectasia. Laser therapy is the most effective treatment for facial telangiectasia and broken capillaries since it is less invasive. It is frequently used to treat the face and neck, but it can also be used to treat other regions of the body. The laser targets the red blood cells in the vessel and induces thermal injury in the microscopic skin blood vessels, resulting in the sealing of the enlarged blood channels. This technique is not painful and has a quick recovery time.

How Does Laser Treatment Work?

Laser system uses a cooled hand-piece and a variety of energy levels to naturally remove visible spider and varicose veins. The process is non-invasive and leaves no scars because laser energy is used. During the first two days after the operation, you should expect some redness in the treated area. You may notice symptoms of improvement as soon as two weeks. If the veins resurface, you may require a follow-up treatment to permanently remove them.

What are the causes of Telangiectasia?

Telangiectasia’s actual cause is unknown. Several factors, according to researchers, may lead to the formation of telangiectasia. These factors could be hereditary, environmental, or a combination. Most occurrences of telangiectasia are thought to be caused by long-term sun exposure or severe temperatures. This is because they typically form on the body, where the skin is frequently exposed to sunlight and air.

Other plausible explanations include the following:

  • Genetics\Aging 
  • Exposure to the sun and wind 
  • Blood vessel dilation medications 
  • Pregnancy or the pill as a method of contraception 
  • Dermatological trauma 
  • Incisions made during surgery 
  • Rosacea 
  • Acne 
  • Prolonged usage of corticosteroids, either orally or topically
