Fotona 4D veins and vascular treatments London
Laser erythema removal and vascular closure
Small dilated blood vessels, larger ones - telangiectasias on the face and telangiectasias, or spider veins on the legs, as well as superficial erythema - all these vascular defects are successfully overcome by the SpaClinique team, equipped with the Fotona4D neodymium-yag laser, from the most modern laser system in the world.
Why Fotona4D laser?
The Fotona4D neodymium-yag laser, with a wavelength of 1064 nm, emits the deepest penetrating beam on the market, which enables it to destroy blood vessels with a large diameter, even those deeply hidden under the skin. Its monochromatic, unidirectional and selective action ensures the highest effectiveness and minimises the risk of tissue damage. The device is one of the highest achievements of Fotona4D brand, a world leader in the design and manufacture of laser systems.
How does laser treatment of erythema and closure of spider veins work?
The neodymium-yag laser uses the phenomenon of photothermolysis to reduce and eliminate the problems of vascular skin. Intense laser light is absorbed by the pigment (haemoglobin) found in red blood cells and converted into thermal energy. Under the influence of the thermal phenomenon the blood vessel evaporates and seals itself - coagulates.
Indications for treatments to remove erythema and close blood vessels:
- Vascular changes on legs, so called "spider veins"
- Facial telangiectasias
- Erythema on the face
- Small varicose veins and venous dilatations of lower limbs
- Reduction of erythema
- Smoothing and refreshing the skin after treatment for erythema
- Tension and increase of skin elasticity after treatment for erythema
- Destruction and closure of telangiectasia and venangiectasia, the so-called spider veins
Important before treatment
For one month before the treatment do not tan your skin 4 weeks before the treatment do not exfoliate your skin with peelings At least one month before the treatment we resign from using retinol and creams with fruit acids (locally, where we want to perform epilation) 2-3 weeks before the treatment we stop taking photosensitive drugs and herbs, we can return to them after 2 weeks from the treatment 2 weeks before the treatment we do not depilate the skin on which the treatment is to be performed On the day of the treatment do not drink alcohol You should come to the treatment with clean, shaved skin in the place of treatment
Important after treatment
For a few hours after the treatment you may feel a burning or pinching sensation and your skin may be more tender. In some cases the erythema intensifies but lasts only a few hours, a few days at most, which you can mask with make-up. We recommend cooling the skin with cold packs and using special cosmetics after laser treatments. Do not massage or rub your skin for 5-7 days so as not to irritate it further. Give up more invasive cosmetics for a few days, including soap and cosmetics with alcohol. Reduce physical activity for a week and abstain from sports. Do not use scrubs for 7-10 days. Do not use hot baths or sauna for 2 weeks. Do not sunbathe for a month and use the highest UV protection. In case of vascular treatments on the legs, use compression stockings (7-10 days)
Recommended number of treatments
One treatment usually does not give complete removal of vascular problem. Therefore, it is necessary to perform several treatments, for example, in the case of the so-called spider veins on the legs (venangiectasia) from 1 to 4 repetitions. In the case of telangiectasia, i.e. dilated capillaries on the face, we recommend 1-3 treatments with the Fotona4D neodymium-yag laser. The erythema treatments are also performed in series for the desired calming of the vascular game.

Treatments with the Fotona4D neodymium-yag laser, which is part of the most advanced Fotona Dynamis SP laser system, are characterised by the highest level of safety. It is guaranteed by, among others, innovative solutions such as VSP, i.e. Variable Square Pulse, which prevents the inconsistent distribution of energy, protecting the device from the risk of overheating or burning the tissues. EFC, or Impulse Feedback Control, is another solution that maintains a constant level of laser light. Thanks to it, the treatments performed are 100% effective, the patient does not have to fear that he/she will receive an incomplete treatment or - due to an increase in indices - will risk damaging tissues. Fotona4D is among the leaders in the development and production of technologically leading laser systems, whose effectiveness is confirmed by dozens of studies.
