Laser treatment of couperose

Couperose can be seen as a network of red or purple visible blood vessels on the face. This can be perceived as marred and cosmetically disturbing. These telangiectastias are completely harmless, but no longer disappear by themselves.

Laser treatment of blood vesicles and spider naevus

Blood vesicles are also known as Cherry angiomas. A superficial multiplication of the blood vessel tissue is visible as red, convex spots from 1 mm to 1 cm in size. These blood vesicles are completely benign, but will not go away on their own.

Spider Naevus is a network of visible red vessels. A red, round core is visible in the center from which several vessels run. These vessels are visible through a local widening of small skin vessels.

Vasculair laser treatment at Huid & Laser Utrecht

At Huid & Laser Utrecht, couperose and other vascular abnormalities are treated with the Nd-Yag 1064 nm vascular laser or a combination with the Alexandrite laser. This is the most effective treatment method. The light from the laser is absorbed by the red and purple color of the keg. The light is converted into heat and this heat ensures that the proteins in the vessel wall solidify. This damages the vessel and your body cleans up the vascular residue.

The skin is cooled with direct air cooling during the treatment. This ensures that the surrounding skin is turned off for the heat and the treatment is less sensitive.

Laser treatment of rosacea

Sometimes couperose is accompanied by small pimples, inflammation, flushing (blistering redness), itching or burning. There may then be rosacea. Often even redness is in the foreground. Rosacea is also often treated with IPL (intense pulsed light) to treat flushing and even redness.
