The Aesthetic Skin Clinic use gold standard ND:YAG lasers to reduce the appearance of spider veins, broken capillaries and cherry angiomas on the face, décolletage and body leaving you with effective long-term results.
Using our ND:YAG laser we can effectively and safely treat telangtasia and broken capillaries within the skin.
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.
Results can be seen in as a few days depending on the lesion.
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.
Generally every 4-6 weeks.
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.
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 nonocclusive gel prescribed by your therapist.
