Laser Vascular Services
Vascular lasers selectively target unwanted or abnormal blood vessels in the skin, whilst minimizing damage to surrounding normal skin structures.
The vascular lasers can be used to treat Broken capillaries or telangiectases, Redness of the face and neck, Rosacea, Spider naevi, Cherry angiomas, and Some leg veins.
Modern vascular lasers are very safe and effective when used by professionally trained technician. They are generally more effective on the face than on other areas of the body, and multiple treatments may be required to achieve the best results.
The laser delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface.
Patients describe the treatment as feeling like a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered. To minimize discomfort, some services may require a numbing cream. Following the treatment, pain is minimal to non-existent. There can be an initial period of redness, swelling, stinging or bruising, which is always temporary and dissipates over time. Most people will recover over 48 hours. Most patients find that the treated area shows a significant improvement within 2-6 weeks of treatment. Your final results might not be apparent for several months. Multiple treatments spaced apart over time are usually required to achieve the best results. Compression hose or socks are recommended following treatment on legs, and to avoid standing for prolonged periods of time as well as exercise.
