Treatment of couperose in Barcelona
In order to permanently close the dilated blood vessels so that the skin recovers its normal appearance, 3 or 4 sessions are recommended throughout the year of vascular laser as well as annual maintenance.
The most used are:
- Nd: YAG: it is very effective especially when the vessels are larger.
- Pulsed dye: Pulsed dye: it is characterized by its great specificity to treat vascular lesions. Although in some cases it causes the appearance of residual purpura as a result of the explosion of blood vessels.
- KTP laser: it is characterized by a therapeutic effect similar to that of the pulsed dye but does not cause purpura. Although it can cause a slight swelling of 2-3 days.
Its great advantage is that they only act in the area to be treated, without damaging the surrounding skin and that it is a painless procedure
