Vascular lesions removal treatments are recommended for people suffering from blood vessel disorders, ranging from small telangiectasias called spider veins or broken capillaries to reticular lesions and larger burgundy spots. They give excellent results in the case of small red veins as well as large, spacious veins, even blue or purple. They eliminate changes present from birth and caused with age under the influence of the environment, e.g. sun exposure.
Visible vascular lesions on the legs is a common problem of women, especially in adulthood. Surgery can leave scars in places of cuts, put at risk of infection and involve a long period of convalescence. Even the latest, less invasive treatments of vascular lesions removal still require local anesthesia, as they are associated with considerable pain.
In the case of vascular tissue, the tissue we want to remove are blood vessels. The light energy is absorbed by the red blood pigment - hemoglobin and changed into heat, raising the temperature of the blood. When the blood reaches a sufficiently high temperature, it coagulates and destroy the vessel wall, which is eventually removed from the organism.
The sclerotherapy treatment consists in closing the veins by injecting medicinal substances in various concentrations. The injection damages the cells that line the blood vessels (endothelium). This leads to the local formation of a clot that seals the vessel. Over time, the vein develops into a connective tissue that is no longer visible. Occasionally, an artificially induced clot may resolve by itself - in which case blood may flow back through the vein. If this happens, the sclerotherapy should be repeated with a higher concentration of sclerosant.
