Laser Treatment - Vascular Lesions
Vascular Lesions, Varicose & Spider Veins
Greater Precision for Clear–Cut Results.
Vascular lasers are the ideal treatment for blood vessels and red blemishes close to the surface of the skin, particularly on the face, neck, chest and legs.
How do they work?
Using advanced Light, Laser and (AFT) Advanced Florescence Technology, penetrates the outer layers of skin to reach the blood vessels below. Targeted blood vessels selectively absorb the energy in the beam and are destroyed by the short but intense heat created. The body removes the damaged vessels gradually to normalise the skin’s appearance. Surrounding tissue is unaffected because it does not selectively absorb this wavelength of light.
Vascular Lesions, Varicose and Spider veins are blood vessels that become enlarged and visible due to weakened valves, which cause blood to pool rather than flow to the heart. Vascular laser treatments offer an effective, non-invasive solution that close these veins and reduce or eliminate their appearance. Minimum Treatments: 6-8 treatments at intervals of 4-8 weeks between sessions.
