Treatment Options for Telangiectasia
For a beautiful Appearance
Dilated blood vessels (telangiectasias) usually occur in the areas of cheeks, nose, forehead or chin, but can also show up in other parts of the body. They are located directly under the skin surface and are therefore clearly visible.
Telangiectasias usually do not cause any symptoms and are completely harmless. However, they are an aesthetic problem, especially in highly visible areas such as the face, neck or décolleté. The conspicuous red or blue vessels permanently change the appearance and can also become a psychical burden for those affected.
The appearance of dilated blood vessels can be due to genetic factors, but frequent sunbathing, high blood pressure and natural aging processes can also have an influence on their development. Women are more often affected than men. Once the veins are present, they do not regress.
Couperose & Rosacea
Clearly visible veins on somebody’s face can also indicate the skin disease rosacea. In addition to dilated blood vessels, rosacea is often accompanied by pustules or poplars in the affected areas.
Rosacea can cause dry, itchy or burning skin and pain. Although it most commonly occurs on the face, other regions of the body may also be affected.
Rosacea is a chronic disease that shows up in episodes and can be classified into different degrees of severity. The so-called couperosis is considered an early stage or precursor of rosacea.
A proliferation of dilated blood vessels can lead to the formation of red, round hematoma (angioma). This benign skin change manifests itself as a spot or slight elevation, is usually just the size of a pinhead at the beginning and can increase overtime.
Laser Treatment against conspicuous Vessels
If you do not want to resign yourself to changes in your appearance, our beauty and dermatology practice AVORYA offers you a gentle and effective way to remove conspicuous veins and blood sponges. With the Lutronic medical laser Clarity, we can permanently remove unsightly skin changes in often only one session. The laser energy is absorbed by the blood pigment, the heat obliterates the vessel walls and the veins close. Those who are no longer supplied with blood are then gradually broken down by the body.
In our practice, the treatment is always preceded by a detailed consultation including diagnostics. Dr. Bettina Kerbler is an experienced dermatologist and has specialized in laser treatment. She can therefore always give you comprehensive advice on the most suitable treatment for your individual skin problem. Make an appointment with us now, we look forward to your visit.
