RED VEIN REMOVAL
How does the treatment work?
Light energy is applied to the skin where it is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.
Which types of veins can be treated?
Most red skin lesions, including facial thread veins, rosacea, spider naevi, and port wine stains, can be treated very successfully.
How is the treatment carried out?
The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. During treatment, protective eyewear will be provided.
Am I suitable for treatment?
Treatment is suitable for most people. Best results are obtained for those with fair skin, and there is less chance of side effects.
How does the treatment feel?
Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but there is no need for anaesthesia and the procedure is actually quite quick. Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot pin prick.
Are there any side effects?
After treatment the area may feel warm for a few hours. Rarely, some delicate skin areas such as the cheeks or décolleté can be red and slightly swollen for up to 48 hours. Though very rare, there is a chance a small blister may form and there could be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
How long does each treatment take?
Treatments typically take from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the type and size of lesion.
How many treatments are necessary?
Typically 3 to 5 treatments are needed for optimum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single session. Repeat treatments are spaced every 4 to 6 weeks.
Rosacea is a medical condition where the veins in the face enlarge giving the face a red appearance. It typically begins after the age of thirty, though it can start before, as redness on the cheeks nose, chin or forehead which at first will just come and go but as time passes the redness tends to get darker and more chronic. Left untreated, veins start to become visible, bumps and pimples start to develop and in more severe cases the nose can become swollen and bumpy and the eyes irritated, watery and bloodshot.There is no known medical cure for the condition at this time so treatments available are tackling the symptoms or making lifestyle changes to cut down on the causes of rosacea flare ups. The IPL device emits a range of light waves which are precisely calibrated to target the haemoglobin in your blood vessels. These light beams pass through your skin and are absorbed by the haemoglobin resulting in damage to the blood vessel wall. This controlled injury to the blood vessels triggers the body’s natural response to break down and remove the damaged tissue. New cells then replace the problem area with clearer, better looking skin.
