Couperosis is a skin disease in which there is a permanent dilation of small blood vessels in the facial skin. It is manifested by the appearance of visible red veins, also called telangiectasias, which can appear mainly on the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. The affected areas of skin often have a reddish or pinkish discoloration. Especially in advanced cases, inflammation, redness and skin irritation may occur.
The cause of couperose lies in the weakening of blood vessel walls, which leads to their dilatation. This may be due to genetic predisposition, but also to various factors such as excessive sun exposure, hormonal changes, alcohol consumption, stress or extreme temperatures.
Although couperose is not a serious medical condition in itself, it can be perceived as a cosmetic problem and affect the self-confidence of those affected. Its treatment aims to reduce the visibility of the dilated blood vessels and soothe the skin. In our practice, we offer various therapies that can be used depending on the severity and individual needs of the patient.
- Laser therapy,
- IPL (intense pulsed light therapy),
- electrical coagulation,
- Cryotherapy (cold therapy) and
- dermatological creams or ointments
After a comprehensive examination, we can determine the appropriate treatment with you.
