How does phlebolysis work?
phleb comes from Greek “blood vein” and -lysis from Greek “to dissolve“
The phlebolyser is a tool that stimulates water molecules to vibrate strongly, thus generating heat – which, if intense enough, leads to the sclerosis of cells “from the inside out”.
Tissues that particularly maintain a lot of water, especially blood vessels, respond most strongly to this stimulus.
The vibrations are generated by a combination of high-frequency radio waves and electric current. This combination allows tissue to be sclerosed, although the actual tool, i.e. the needle, remains cold.
How does the body react to the stimulus?
By obliterating the cells and especially the blood vessels, the affected area dies – even if there were still living cells in the skin disorder, their nutrient supply was interrupted by the particularly effective obliteration of the blood vessels.
The immune system recognizes the damaged tissue – but since it can only penetrate the destroyed tissue with great difficulty due to the lack of blood supply, the tissue is not rebuilt.
Instead, the body repairs the tissue adjacent to the treated area and thus prepares the rejection process.
This rejection process is visible to us by scaling of the skin or simply by detachment of the skin disorder – either immediately after the treatment or in the following few days, depending on the specifications of the skin disorder. Relatively large skin disorders sometimes require several sessions.
Side effects and contraindications?
After the treatment, there may be slight redness in the treated area Although the treatment can be performed without anesthesia, it is quite noticeable and some patients find it uncomfortable, but still well tolerable. . Among the approximately 1,000,000 documented cases, no permanent side effects or deterioration of the skin condition have been reported to us so far.
Before treatment, it should always be clarified by a physician whether the skin disorders may need to be treated surgically for safety reasons (e.g., if cancer is suspected).
The advantages of treatment with the Phlebolyser:
- no anesthesia
- scarring is not known
- gentle an low-pain method
- immediately visible reaction
- applicable on any skin
- burns are not possible because tool is cold
- no bleeding
- no risk of infection
- no stitches, no pressure bandage
- patient is not restricted in any way after treatment
