How do you remove the capillaries by laser?

When removing capillaries with a laser, the laser beam is absorbed in the blood vessels, the blood evaporates and the blood vessel “sticks together”. Within a few weeks after the procedure, the capillaries are completely eliminated or disappeared. Neodymium laser acts on the blood vessels and does not damage the skin. Sometimes, several procedures are needed to completely remove capillaries, which are carried out at intervals of 14 days. During the procedure, it is prickly, but it does not require any special analgesics.
