Broken capillaries or spider veins are often genetically predispositioned, but bathing in very warm water, often use of saunas, exercise in heated spaces or anti-cellulite massage using vacuum can greatly contributed to their occurrence. Capillaries break and are visible usually during pregnancy and in later years of life. In men, the capillaries usually appear on face around the nose, while in women the highest number of capillaries can be found on legs.
Capillaries are tiny purple and red blood vessels, which are often visible on legs, wrists or feet. Do not mix them with varicose veins which are larger and deeper veins, and they are usually dark purple and lumpy. Varicose veins can cause a queasy feeling in the legs, while the spiders veins are usually painless. Spider veins are progressive and usually they increase with age and they are more visible. In Poliklinika Bagatin you can with laser treat capillaries and veins up to 2 mm.
With laser you can remove specific vascular lesions from all areas of the body. The hemoglobin contained in red blood cells absorb the laser beam which releases the energy that affects the protein in blood and thus closes the blood vessel. All capillaries and veins, regardless of color, can be removed provided that the diameter is under 2 mm. Minor veins and capillaries disappear immediately, while the larger veins and capillaries take some time to disappear.
