Laser for facial capillaries, rosacea and vascular concerns
Traditional treatment using diathermy or thermolysis systems (electrosurgery) have been replaced by less painful, safer and more effective light therapies.
Our lasers deliver an intense but gentle burst of yellow light to selectively targeted areas of the skin, this may be the little blood vessel around the nose, spider veins, vascular lesions and red discoloration of your skin. The laser targets your blood vessels, heating them and causing them to collapse. A cooling spray accompanies the laser pulse to reduce pain from this process. Vascular lasers we have are the Candella V Beam (595nm), Aura (532nm) and Lyra (1064nm).
What conditions can be treated?
- Redness of the face and neck
- Broken capillaries
- Spider naevi
- Port wine stains
- Early scars and red stretchmarks
- Mild acne scarring
How many treatments are required?
Your doctor or clinician will discuss this thoroughly at your consultation.
What can I expect during treatment?
The lasers cause a short stinging sensation in the skin. This may feel like being flicked with an elastic band or plucking a hair. The treated area may be slightly red, like mild sunburn.
Before Your Laser Treatment
It is always best to discuss with your Doctor or clinician if you are on any sun sensitising medications.
After your laser treatment
It is important to remember that you may not see the full effect of treatment for several weeks after the laser procedure.
