• Laser Treatment

The laser treatment consists of sending an electromagnetic beam to the block of bleeding capillaries. It is also used to narrow blood vessels, to prevent the breakage of capillaries in the future.
In general, a single session that lasts about 15-20 minutes is sufficient. In the most serious cases, the session can be repeated.

As most of the other Laser treatments, this also has side effects. Among the side effects are:

  1. Equimosis
  2. Redness
  3. Itch
  4. Swelling
  • Sclerotherapy Treatment

Sclerotherapy is a treatment in which a solution is injected into the veins that close the wound and lightens the spots on the skin. The broken vein and blood vessels disappear in a few days.
Sclerotherapy is more effective than laser treatment if done correctly.
Among the side effects are:

  1. Itchy legs
  2. Swelling
  3. Color alteration of the skin

  5. Do not wear shoes with heels.
  6. Maintain an adequate body weight to avoid applying more pressure on the veins.
  7. Avoid the habit of crossing your legs while sitting.
  8. Avoid salty foods since too much sodium causes fluid retention that can increase the pressure in the blood vessels.
  9. Follow a healthy diet with more fresh fruit, vegetables and avoid processed foods.
  10. You can hide or camouflage imperfections of the skin with makeup, for example, Collistar brand or Covermark.
  11. Waxing can cause a trauma that damages the capillaries, therefore women suffering from capillary fragility would have to use the shaver.
