Couperose

Couperose
Treatment
When dilated red blood vessels become visible and create a vascular network called telangiectasias, which creates in turn reddish spots in the middle of the face. They are located mainly on the nose, cheekbones and jaw. Couperose is removed entirely using the Pulsed Dye Laser. This type of laser has affinity with the red colour, with haemoglobin and when it shoots on the capillary, red colour absorbs the laser energy and breaks the endothelium (the inner layer that lines the blood vessel) and causes a vascular collapse. The body reabsorbs the damaged blood vessels until they disappear without a trace.

Sessions and Results

It is the final treatment since that blood vessel never reappears, although new ones can dilate, so it is necessary to follow some guidelines to prevent couperose from reappearing. The number of sessions is decided based on the amount of telangiectasias and based on the different skins, but the average number is between 1 and 3, at intervals of 30 days.
