Laser Vascular Therapy
The Aesthetic Skin Clinic use gold standard ND:YAG lasers to reduce the appearance of spider veins and broken capillaries on the face and décolletage, leaving you with effective long-term results.
What you need to know
Who is it suitable for?
Using our ND:YAG laser we can effectively and safely treat telangtasia and broken capillaries within the skin.
How does it work?
The laser is attracted to the pigment in the blood. The vascular lesions instantly become slightly darker or lighter resulting in the lesion breaking down.
Is a test patch required?
Yes. An initial test patch is required for all patients. This can be done within a minimum of 24-48 hours prior to the treatment. This is to ensure safety for the client with no adverse reactions.
When will I notice results?
Results can be seen in as a few days depending on the lesion.
How many treatments will I need?
This is depending completely on the clients vessels. Some clients find one treatment is sufficient and others may need a few more treatments to successfully break all of the lesions down. Maintenance will be needed.
How far apart do I need treatment?
Generally every 4-6 weeks.
Does the treatment hurt?
No, the treatment is not painful at all however mild discomfort may be felt with the heat from the laser. We also use our integrated cooling device to keep the treatment as close to pain free as possible.
Vessels will either immediately appear darker post treatment or will completely collapse and disappear. Redness and swelling will occur surrounding the lesion. Bruising is uncommon but possible for more prominent vessels. Micro crusting can be present and is expected to exfoliate off naturally within 7-10 days for the face and up to 14 days for the body.
Pre & Post Care
A consultation is mandatory prior to treatment to determine the skin's functioning and your goals. Laser vessel removal requires the skin to be prepped for a minimum of 2 weeks on a gentle cleanser, pigment inhibitor, hydrator with vitamin C and SPF. Post-treatment requires the application of a non occlusive gel prescribed by your therapist.
