Laser spider vein removal

The problem of broken capillaries on face and body is a problem that afflicts 90% of women, but also a large number of men. Regardless of where they appear, and in what age, small red and blue capillaries have effect on our beauty and image. But with our laser technology, this does not have to be a problem anymore. 

About the procedure

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.

How do you prepare?

Before any laser treatment in Poliklinika Bagatin you need to follow these rules:

  • skin should not be tanned, especially before the treatment of green light;
  • warn your specialist about medications you use (and those without a prescription);
  • skin needs to be clean and free of make-up and other cosmetics;
  • if necessary, carefully shave the area of treatment.

During the procedure

Before treatment of larger capillaries, skin should be cooled down first. Specialists in Poliklinika Bagatin scan the treated area of skin with a laser beam. You will feel small stings that indicate the effectiveness of therapy and usually anesthesia is not necessary. The duration of treatment depends on the size of the area being treated, but in most cases it takes only a few minutes.

Recovery time

Depending on the size of the treated area, there can occur redness and swelling after the treatment. Little skin peeling is also possible in certain cases, which you have to let it heal. In most cases the results will be visible after treatment is carried out after consultation with our specialists in Poliklinika Bagatin.


The most common side effects of laser removal of veins and capillaries are:

  • Skin irritation - occasional discomfort, redness and swelling are possible after laser removal of veins and capillaries. All signs and symptoms usually disappear within a few hours.
  • Change pigment - laser veins and capillaries can darken or lighten the treated skin, usually temporarily. Skin brighten mainly occurs in people with darker skin, especially if the laser is improperly used in unsuitable environments.

The above is a very rare and usually lasts a few days. After treatment it is necessary to avoid the sun at least 7-10 days, and use sunscreens with SPF 50th


Laser treatments at the Poliklinika Bagatin are divided by body regions.
