The dilated capillaries that appear most often on the face form over time a red network of vessels, thus constituting a source of discomfort and complexes. The tendency to break blood vessels is usually genetically determined. This problem is also often the result of hypertension, hormonal and circulatory disorders, or excessively sensitive skin to external factors.
Laser closing of blood vessels is a procedure that allows you to close an enlarged blood vessel by means of radiation. Laser radiation causes the blood temperature in the blood vessel to increase rapidly, the blood vessel contracts and closes, and this change is permanent. By properly choosing the wavelength of laser radiation, the treatment brings immediate and lasting effects.
