How it Helps
Treatments Available to Target:
The energy from the laser is absorbed by the blood in the vein, converted into heat and the bein walls are subsequently destroyed. In comparison with other wavelengths, which mainly affect the surface layers of a lesion, Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is important for ensuring long-term efficacy. Other healthy veins supply blood to the treated area and the body’s immune system, which clears away the dead tissue, as it would with a bruise.
