iery mole (naevus flammeus in Latin) is a change in skin colouring – the skin is red. Unfortunately, fiery mole mostly occurs in the face. To remove a fiery mole, vascular laser can be used. The laser beam passes through the skin without damaging it and it specifically reacts with haemoglobin (red blood pigment). The treated vessel is blocked, later transformed into connective tissue and absorbed. For optimal outcome of the surgery, before the treatment, please consult our physician, with whom you can agree on the exact procedure. Your doctor will give you all instructions, among others, also regarding the skin care before and after the treatment. The treatment is performed repeatedly and the colouring gradually subsides. Repetition is recommended in 4-6 weeks after the previous treatment.
It is necessary to protect skin against sun rays for several weeks with creams with a high sun protection factor, to prevent the occurrence of undesirable pigmented manifestations on the skin.

Small expanded veins
We treat all undesirable lesions caused by expanded blood vessels using a vascular laser. Most often, these include expanded veins in the face (nose and cheeks), hemangiomas (red dots or even growths on different parts of the body), naevus flammeus – “fiery mole,” spider nevi, small veins on the lower extremities. This type of laser can also be used for scar correction. The laser beam specifically reacts with haemoglobin (red blood pigment) and the energy of light is converted to heat, which damages the vessel. Within a few days, the vessel is absorbed. Due to the heat creation, the treatment causes feelings like mild stinging. These feelings of discomfort can be minimized by intense cooling using the laser attachment during the treatment. Previous anaesthesia usually is not required. Immediately after the procedure, the treated area can be slightly red and swollen, and cooling should be applied for a while. After the treatment using a vascular laser, the skin must be protected from sun rays using creams with a high UV protection factor.

Rosacea is a very common dermatosis (skin disease), which can be compared to acne. It is an inflammatory disease of the skin; the causes of rosacea development are still unclear. Rosacea manifests itself first through transient, later permanent redness and enlarged veins on convex parts of the face – nose, cheeks, forehead, chin. Typically, this redness has the shape of a butterfly. Later inflammatory changes emerge – pimples (papules) and clouded blisters (pustules). Rosacea occurs in both sexes, but slightly more often in women. The local treatment consists of applying formulations containing metronidazole and erythromycin or pastes containing sulphur and retinoids. In severe cases, systemic treatment is used: antibiotics (tetracycline, doxycycline, minocycline). In very severe cases, isotretinoin is administered (a vitamin A derivative). Spider veins can be removed using a vascular laser or diathermocoagulation (a treatment method that uses high temperatures for biological tissue destruction). Hypertrophic tissue can be removed with a laser or through plastic surgery.
