Vein removal. Does Lumecca IPL treat veins?

When targeted toward red pigments in the blood, IPL can reduce the appearance of broken capillaries of the face and spider veins in the legs and arms by destroying the pigment while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. This same ability facilitates the IPL treatment of age spots, freckles, and sun-damaged skin.

30-40% of people have small veins like “telangiectasia” and “phlebectasia”. In fact, these aesthetic defects are nothing more than dilated capillaries, and small vessels. Vascular disorders appear regardless of age and gender.

Most often, dilated vessels are localized on the face (in the region of the wings of the nose, on the cheeks and chin), on the legs, and in the décolleté

The signs of this disease can be in the form of single vessels, reddish cheeks (rosacea), spider veins, and reticulum (rosacea).
There are no home remedies that can eliminate it.

Why are blood vessels visible?

The vessels are visible due to the thin skin of the face, the walls of the stretched capillaries become thinner and appear on the face in the form of a vascular network. The cause of the appearance of the vascular network is the stagnation of blood. Genetic predisposition is also one of the main causes of rosacea. Aggressive and abrasive household products (scrubs, brushes, etc.) lead to the growth of the vascular network.

It is desirable to eliminate the factors that contribute to the formation of telangiectasias in order to prevent the appearance of new formations after the procedure for their removal.

Types of vascular pathologies

There are several types of the vascular network.

Linear: Linear veins are snake-like veins of different sizes with more than one curve. Outwardly, the capillaries look like unidirectional stripes and are associated with postpartum striae. They can be red or blue, the localization area is the cheeks, wings of the nose, and legs.

Spot: This type of vascular network is easily recognizable by one translucent capillary, which has a small diameter and resembles a light mole from the side.

Spider: Spider veins, or thread veins, are smaller than varicose veins. They are usually red. They may look like tree branches or spider webs. Spider veins can usually be seen under the skin, but they do not make the skin bulge out as varicose veins do.

Treelike: Unlike the spider veins, the dendritic one is characterized by the fact that the capillaries spread in one direction, like a plant branch or a tree with a root. The color is usually blue.

Over time, different types of capillary networks can transform into one another, so do not delay the possible relief of the spread of this phenomenon. The more extensive the appearance of telangiectasia, the more difficult the removal, regardless of the method chosen.
