Creating a More Flawless Appearance

Despite being harmless and quite common...

vascular lesions such as broken red veins, thread veins, rosacea, red spots (Campbell De Morgan spots), spider naevi and port wine stains can be distressing for those that have them.

However, we are delighted to announce that we have a quick easy solution for this, you will see great results in just a few treatments.

We can use this treatment on a number of common vascular concerns including:

Rosacea | Broken red veins | Thread veins | Port-wine stains | Red Spots (Campbell De Morgan spots) | Spider naevi (Telangiectasia) | Poikiloderma of Civatte (red/brown discolouration on the side of the neck) | Leg vessels (can also respond well to treatment, depending on the lesions).

How the treatment works

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 re-absorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.

How the treatment is 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, as 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.

Consultation Procedure

Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a patch test 7 days prior to treatment.
