Veins and dilated capillaries

Veins on the delicate skin of your face, neck and decolletage or unattractive discoloration on your legs are not part of the look we all want but something that generally increases in appearance as we age. 

They can commonly be found on the face and chest and can be caused by genetics, internal and external factors. These can have a significant impact on our self-confidence and lifestyle. They occur just beneath the skin’s surface when blood vessels are dilated or enlarged, the result is small red or purple lines spread in a web shaped form.

The treatment of spider veins with the laser is very simple and is truly a “lunchtime” procedure.  For most clients, only a topical anaesthetic cream is required. 

HOW IT WORKS

Using this technology, we can treat a number of unwanted and unattractive skin problems such as:

  • Telangiectasia – spider veins on the face and legs caused by dilation of the capillary vessels.
  • Rosacea – red lesions around the nose and cheeks, similar in appearance to sunburn.
  • Spider Angiomas – red spider-like veins that are slightly raised in appearance.
  • Cherry Angiomas – red lesions that are slightly raised.

 

Performed by our experienced laser technicians using medical grade Candela Gentle YAG lasers for fast and optimal results. This safe and effective treatment is the fastest way to diminish these imperfections and even-out skin tone. We recommend three treatments at 6-weekly intervals; however, some clients can see instant results from this walk-in and walk-out treatment.

Treatments are fast and only mildly uncomfortable, making them a suitable and non-invasive option for individuals wanting smooth and balanced skin tone. This is the premium standard in broken capillary and spider vein corrective treatment.

The laser works by delivering a focused beam of light that is absorbed into the red blood vessels. The beam directs intense heat to the damaged vessel creating energy, which either destroys the damaged vessel or causes the vessel walls to contract, so reducing redness and visibility of broken capillaries. The heat used in this procedure can cause the treatment area to be flushed immediately after treatment and may also have some residual heat which will dissipate over the following 24-48 hours.
