Vascular erythema is the numerous extensions of very small vessels that are tightly attached to each other and giving the redness of the skin. It creates a very dense network of capillaries and is manifested by visible (disappearing or permanent) redness of the skin, e.g. on the cheeks or neckline. The capillaries expand rapidly under the influence of emotions, frost, heat or an increase in blood pressure.
Important – vascular erythema is NOT treated in the same way as broken capillaries, because improper treatment of vascular erythema may exacerbate its symptoms. Both of these conditions require completely different therapy.
The causes of vascular erythema are genetic, environmental or civilization-related. Vascular erythema is a problem that affects men and women, regardless of age.
How to get rid of erythema?
The best solution is laser therapy and laser removal of erythema.
Removal of erythema involves laser treatment of the affected areas. In erythema therapy, it is important to suppress the problem in the bud before it develops for good.
The erythema removal procedure using the Dye-VL laser is fast and painless. The waves emitted by the laser are absorbed by the blood dye (hemoglobin). The laser rays reach deep into the vessels, where they are absorbed by the dye contained in red blood cells. As a result, the blood vessel is heated rapidly, which is converted into heat energy and irreversibly damaged and absorbed. The laser activates cells and additionally stimulates the formation of new collagen fibers and elastin.
By default, it is assumed that visible improvement occurs after 4-6 exposures. It should be remembered that erythema removal procedures are performed from autumn to spring to avoid skin exposure to the sun. Removing erythema provides the best results in the early stages of dermatological changes.
Effects of laser treatment for erythema:
- reduction or complete removal of vascular lesions
- improvement of skin tone
- improvement of firmness thanks to the stimulation of collagen fibers
- skin rejuvenation effect
The erythema removal procedures partially exclude the patient from daily activities. Immediately after the procedure, do not irritate the skin and perform peelings.
In order to obtain a satisfying effect, a series of treatments is necessary to perform. Their number is determined individually depending on the problem and skin reaction.
Price of the treatment:
Removal of erythema – DyeVL: 700 PLN whole face / 1 treatment
The final price of the procedure is determined individually during a consultation with the doctor.
