Today, more and more medical professionals and patients find this state-of-the-art technology versatile in treating many conditions, including spider veins.
spider veins before treatment
Spider veins appear most commonly in the legs, and the reason for this is that the legs are at a greater distance from the heart than most body parts.
The force of gravity must be overcome to pump the blood back to the lungs during circulation, making the veins in the legs more susceptible to the blood backing up, causing problems like varicose veins to develop.
A variety of treatments available
There are a variety of treatments available that medical professionals can use to remove spider veins. With the relatively recent increase in laser technology for medical treatments, laser removal of varicose veins has become a popular and effective option.
During these laser spider vein removal treatments, the laser is passed over the skin at the targeted area. The heat from the laser then causes the walls of the veins to collapse. They then become scar tissue that is absorbed by the body. Thus, the spider veins disappear.
Such treatment has no impact on the effectiveness of the circulatory system since the treated veins were no longer functioning as they should anyway. Instead, the body replaces those veins with better ones.
The Fotona SP Dynamis Laser system
The Fotona SP Dynamis Laser system is among the most advanced technological options available for spider vein removal and other laser treatments. It works by combining two different wavelengths that are complementary to each other.
Laser treatments are now a routine procedure for removing many types of vascular lesions, including hemangiomas, vascular malformations such as port-wine stains, telangiectasias, venous lakes and angiomas.
The Perfect Vascular Solution
Long-pulse Nd:YAG lasers offer the perfect solution for treating vascular lesions. Fotona long-pulse Nd:YAG lasers penetrate to a depth of 5-6 mm into the skin, allowing for highly effective treatments.
Independent research shows that over 75% of patients with deep hemangiomas treated with Nd:YAG lasers show a dramatic lesion regression.
Safe, Effective and Minimally Invasive
The targeted chromophore for vascular lesions is intravascular oxyhemoglobin; thus, thermal damage is primarily restricted to cutaneous blood vessels.
The energy from the laser is absorbed by the blood in the vein, converted into heat, and the vein walls are subsequently destroyed. Compared with other wavelengths, which mainly affect the surface layers of a lesion, Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is essential for ensuring the treatment’s long-term efficacy.
This process is perfectly safe as other healthy veins supply blood to the treated area, and the body’s immune system clears away the dead tissue just as with a bruise.
