Non-invasive treatment for leg veins, facial veins, broken capillaries and rosacea.
Tailored to address your specific concern, from thicker varicose veins to fine capillaries.
Noticeable results with no downtime!
The IPL Vascular Treatment effectively treats spider veins, reticular, broken capillaries and rosacea that occur around the nose and across the cheeks and chin.
The unique technology enables tailoring of the light source and energy to target the vascular condition and cause it to fade away.
Facial veins may be hereditary or as a result of a variety of factors including damage from sun exposure, wind and the extremes of temperature. The over use of steroid creams and certain autoimmune conditions may also induce thread veins.
Facial vessels can be effectively treated with Intense Pulse Light (IPL) with minimal downtime or risk in just a few quick, easy treatments.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
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.
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.
Which types of veins can be treated?
Most red skin lesions, including facial thread veins, rosacea, and port wine stains, can be treated very successfully. Depending on the lesions, leg vessels can also respond well to treatment.
How many treatments are necessary?
Typically 3-6 treatments are needed for optimum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single session. Repeat treatments are spaced every 4 weeks.
