Abstract
More than 2 500 leg veins patients were treated with dye laser / ScleroPlus, Candela, USA / successfully in our clinic and we use this therapy as the basic cosmetics treatment. But especially diameter of leg vein is limiting factor. Very often we have to treat some cases that are not ideal for classical surgical or for dye laser method. We decided to make invasive perivenous laser coagulation. We adapted original Czech 1064/1319 nm Nd:YAG laser / US patent pending /, which is new combine tool, for invasive application. Principe: After we have penetrated the cutis with laser fiber we coagulate leg veins during slowly perivenous motion. Perfect preoperative examination is a condition of success. After 15 months we have very interesting results. Some patients / 15%/ were perfect treated only with this possibility but excellent results are acquired from combination with dye laser.
