Laser removal of skin redness and capillaries

A bit of natural redness on the cheeks brings freshness to your face. However, if the redness continuous, and becomes more intense and eventually more capillaries become visible, than this is called couperose (rosacea), in other words expansion of capillaries. In Poliklinika Bagatin we approach this problem with laser treatments using the best lasers on the market to remove these changes.

About the procedure

The appearance of rosacea that causes facial redness, can greatly affect the quality of life of people who are affected by it. Although their condition is chronic, which means that there is no cure, there are certain steps that can be taken to prevent the occurrence and to reduce visible symptoms.

Laser removal of redness

Treatments that remove redness and capillaries on the skin have minimum risk for clients and ensure gentle and painless treatment, while the results are extraordinary. In Poliklinika Bagatin we use yellow laser QuadroStarPRO, from company Asclepion Laser Technologies, which is the most modern technology and the best choices when it comes to issues on the skin. Using high energy, it is possible to treat  quickly, gently and efficiently capillaries, redness, couperosis and rozacea. 

Laser removal of redness

What causes facial redness and capillary, or in other words couperose and rosacea?

The causes of this are external and genetic factors. Darker skin with normal or slightly increased sebum rarely has problems with facial redness due to its increased isolation, while thinner and lighter skin is more delicate. People with thin or low elasticity of capillary walls of the skin are more likely to develop couperose. In normal, healthy skin capillaries expand to make space for increased blood flow when needed. Capillaries are then tightened and they return to their original state. But in people with a low elasticity, blood vessels expand but are not strong enough to return to its original state. They remain widespread, which eventually causes couperose.

The following risk factors could cause facial redness:

  • Extreme and sudden temperature changes
  • Exposure to the sun
  • Stress
  • Exercise and work under high temperatures
  • Pollution
  • Hot drinks and spicy food
  • Alcohol and cigarettes
  • Health problems such as high blood pressure
  • Rough and improper use of skin care products
  • Genetics

Am I a candidate?

If you are have problems small broken capillaries around the nose and on cheeks, or on the rest of the body, then you are a candidate for removal of these changes with yellow laser. Before each treatment, our doctors will examine you to confirm if you are a candidate for this treatment.

How do you prepare?

Before the treatment skin needs to thoroughly cleaned and dried, make-up removed, and also creams, oils or self-tanning products must not be applied before the treatment or must be completely cleaned from the skin. The area that will be subjected to treatment must not be exposed to sunlight or tanning bed up to 2 weeks prior to treatment. 

During the procedure

During the laser treatment of capillaries, redness of the skin, the light is converted to heat, that makes blood vessels close and disappear. The fluid surrounding the vessel (tissue that contains a high percentage of water) does not absorb light and thus does not damage the surrounding skin. The vessels are immediately "deleted" without incurring repulsive peliosis (purple spots).

These photographs show the real condition before and after the procedure. The results of each procedure are subject to individualities and normal variability of surgical results. Consequently, Bagatin Clinic cannot guarantee equal results for each individual client. 


Recovery time

Immediately after the treatment, the area that was exposed to the laser light will be red and sore. You can put ice on red skin to ease the feeling and to speed up recovery. Skin usually completely calms overnight and you can use standard products for skin care and make-up the next day.

Avoid direct exposure to the sun and tanning bed at least 10-15 days after treatment, do not apply soap directly to the treated area if your skin is still red, and also do not rub your face first few days after treatment.


Usual side effects are redness and swelling that lasts for 24-48 hours. Less frequent side effects are changes in pigmentation, swelling and appearance of scabs. The above mentioned side effects are very rare and usually last a few days. After treatment it is necessary to avoid the sun at least 10-15 days, and use sunscreens with SPF 50+.
