Millions of men and women are bothered by the cosmetic appearance of their unsightly small red, blue and purple blood vessels that most frequently appear on the legs and face. The reasons why we develop these unwanted veins are many, and range from our genetics, lifestyle, workplace factors, sun damage, and even hormonal changes (such as pregnancy) or other medical conditions that can cause unwanted veins to become visible on our body or face.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser vein treatments effectively treat unwanted veins that are visible on your skin. IPL works very well to eliminate spider veins and small, dilated blood vessels (telanectasias) via what’s called ‘selective coagulation’ – using a light beam that is pulsed on to the veins being treated in order to seal them off, causing them to dissolve. As the laser’s light passes through the your skin’s outer layer (the epidermis) it affects only your blood vessels, so there is no injury or damage to your outer skin. This method is state-of-the-art technology that sends laser energy directly into the blood and vessel walls, where it is absorbed by hemoglobin. The hemoglobin is heated by this absorption of energy, and the vessel then coagulates and closes off. The constricted vessel then goes through a process of safe degeneration, and the vein that is present will no longer visible on the surface of your skin. Our IPL treatment method selectivity ensures that the laser’s effect is limited specifically to the vessel, so the surrounding tissue is not affected or compromised.
Several treatments are usually needed to achieve the best results. IPL laser vein removal typically works in 1-2 sessions, and treatments are performed approximately 4-6 weeks apart, depending upon the area and extent of the treatment. With IPL laser vein treatments there are many advantages over traditional sclerotherapy (injection of fluid) treatments. Laser treatment allows for better coverage, it’s not limited just to certain body areas, and is painless. Treatments are performed on the affected areas in short, 15 to 30-minute sessions, and you can immediately resume all normal activities. The result? Quick and easy vein procedures with few, if any, side effects, and little to no recovery time.
With IPL laser vein treatments you can eliminate the veins that you now have, and if new unwanted spider veins or dilated blood vessels appear, maintenance sessions can be performed so you can achieve total clearance.
Give yourself the gift of being able to show off your beautiful skin. Vein-clearance rates vary from 80% to 100%, and treatments are very affordable. You’ll enjoy wearing shorts and dresses again and be able to toss your concealing makeup when your unwanted veins are eliminated. Everyone will notice a difference and you’ll be very pleased with the results.
