In our clinic we can treat with laser the red spider veins that appear on the face and body

In the past, for the treatment of this problem we used electrolysis, a method which brought unbearable pain and sometimes scars but nowadays, we most commonly use the Nd:Yag laser whose discomfort sensation is minimal.

Spider veins are little red, blue or purple blood veins, which appear especially on the face, near the eyes and nose area. Some of the causes of these red spider veins are due to prolonged exposure to sunlight, ageing, trauma and alcoholic liver disease.

Before starting a Nd:Yag laser treatment you will get a full specialty assessment. This procedure is necessary in order to identify the type and stringency of the affliction, the sensitivity of the skin and to know all the medical history, for the maximum safety of our clients. After identifying the problem area, the blood vessels that are to be treated are examined, starting with the large ones and finishing with the thin and less affected ones.

Regardless of the cause of their appearance, the Nd:Yag laser is used as a cosmetic treatment.

Because of the advanced Nd:Yag laser treatment, it gives an accurate distribution of the laser's energy along the blood veins, leading to their coagulation, followed by their absorption by the body. In some cases, bruising may appear in the treated areas, which will disappear without problems in a week at most. After the treatment ,we recommend the avoidance of hot baths, sun exposure and high effort exercise on the day. The number of laser sessions is established according to the size of the affliction but for the best results it may be necessary for more than one intervention.  Nd:Yag Laser's utility finds its application on all skin types, with best results.

The painless and efficient method of laser therapy is applicable on both men and women for solving the unaesthetic aspect of the spider veins. More than that, the persons undergoing this kind of treatment can resume their daily activities right after the intervention, without needing any restrictions.

Thread Veins
Thread veins are also very common. They are mainly found around the nose and in the legs, often on the sides of the knee area. Thread veins are caused by numerous factors such as pregnancy, smoking, hormones, and ageing. The needle is put on to the vein and then an electrical current is released. The current will cauterize the vein, killing the vessel wall and causing the blood to coagulate to the surface and then disappear.This procedure is usually permanent.
