Laser Vein Closure

Laser vein closure, also known as laser photocoagulation, is a safe and effective method for reducing visible vessels on the skin, such as spider veins or dilated blood vessels. It is a popular procedure in the field of aesthetic medicine that helps improve the appearance of the skin and restore its balance.

How does laser vein closure work?

During the laser vein closure procedure, a directed beam of laser light is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessels. This causes energy to concentrate inside the vessel and close it off. The closed vessel gradually gets absorbed, reducing its visibility on the skin.

Benefits of the procedure:

  • Reduction of visible vessels: Laser vein closure allows for effective reduction of the visibility of spider veins and other telangiectasias.
  • Quick and safe: The procedure is relatively quick, non-invasive, and usually does not require a long recovery period.
  • Improved skin appearance: By reducing visible vessels, the skin achieves a more even and aesthetic appearance.

Procedure cost: Starting from 300 PLN

(depends on the quantity and extent of the changes)

Procedure duration: 30-60 minutes, depending on the number of changes.

Anesthesia: Not required.

Recovery: 1-3 days

Absolute and relative contraindications:

Here are the absolute and relative contraindications for laser vein closure (telangiectasias):

Absolute contraindications:

  1. Pregnancy: Laser vein closure is not recommended for pregnant women due to the potential impact of laser radiation on the developing fetus.
  2. Active skin infection: If there is an active skin infection in the treated area, such as bacterial or fungal infections, the procedure will be postponed until the infection is resolved.

Relative contraindications:

  1. Tendency for keloid scarring: Individuals prone to keloid scarring may have an increased risk of an abnormal reaction to laser vein closure. In such cases, the doctor may recommend alternative treatment methods.
