Veins and Capillaries

Laser therapy is the best way to deal with your vascular veins.

Spider veins and dilated capillaries are collections of small blood vessels that have developed close to the skins surface in capillary beds, or clusters of capillaries. Common areas to be affected by spider veins are the face and legs.They are often red, blue or purple in colour.

  • About Laser Therapy Treatment

    Laser therapy provides an affordable and effective way to reduce and remove superficial vascular lesions and diffuse redness.

    We use the medical grade Candela GentleYAG laser to ensure the best results and recommend treatments at 4- 12-week intervals.

    The number of treatments depends on the size of the vein and how your skin reacts. Smaller veins respond more quickly to treatment.

  • About Vascular Removal

    It is the treatment of an individual dilated capillary using laser energy to target the blood supply within the vessel.

    The heat from the laser can collapse the capillary wall causing the vessel to shut down on itself. This will then be treated as useless to the body and will be eliminated by the lymphatic system.

    Most spider veins can be permanently reduced, but touch-ups once or twice a year after a course of treatment may be required to ensure optimal results.

  • What Preparation is Required?

    No sun exposure 2 weeks prior and use ASAP moisturising daily defence SPF 50+.

  • Aftercare Information

    Cold gel or ice packs can be applied and elevate your legs to decrease discomfort.

    There may be some redness similar to bruising if large areas have been treated. This discolouration will fade over the next few weeks. For smaller areas there is very little redness afterwards.

    Avoid any creams or treatment with active ingredients for at least 3 days.
    Avoid strenuous exercise for 48 hours.

    Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight directly after your treatment and always use ASAP soothing gel, Vitamin C & asap moisturising daily defence SPF 50+ to maintain results.
