Dilated and hence visible capillary vessels, so-called telangiectasis, are colloquially known as spider veins. If they accumulate in the face, this is known as couperose.Couperose or spider veins can develop if the blood accumulates in capillary vessels and the vessels are overextended over a longer period. This is by no means a sign of aging, as 70 % of 30 – 39 year-olds are already suffering from visible branching of the vessels. 

For treatment of vascular lesions, pulses of yellow laser light are directly applied to the entire area of the blemish. The veins and capillaries of the lesion absorb the laser’s energy while the surrounding skin tissue does not. 

The treatment causes the exposed vessels to break down and become less visible.Procedure time for vascular lesion treatments depends on the size of the lesion, but never takes more than a few minutes. Side effects from the procedure are minimal – patients may experience some slight discomfort or redness in the area.
