Vascular Treatment (Facial Redness)

We develop thread veins on the face for many difference reasons, such as exposure to extremes of temperature, genetics, hormonal changes, rosacea or injury to the skin.

Laser vascular treatment dramatically improves the appearance of the face leaving unsightly facial red veins far less noticeable. We use an Intense Pulse Light laser machine.  The system releases precisely controlled short pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by the blood vessels, heating it to a point where it is destroyed.  Following treatment the vessels quickly clear and are re-absorbed by the body. The damaged veins are gradually dissolved and removed by the body’s immune system over several weeks following treatment.

Most patients have between one and three treatments, six weeks apart.

Here at Cosmedics Clinic we have over ten years’ experience in treating this condition with excellent results.  We only treat the face and hands areas and do not treat leg veins.

What are the side effects of IPL Vascular Treatment?

Temporary redness, discomfort or swelling, blisters or bruising may occur which will fade in 7-10 days.

Recovery time

This will vary from patient to patient and depends on the individuals own healing.  Care needs to be taken for the first 4-5 days following treatment, no hot baths, aerobic exercise or swimming is advised.
