RED VEIN REMOVAL, VASCULAR LESIONS & ROSACEA
IPL Skin Rejuvenation provides a long-term solution to facial problems such as red flushing (rosacea), thread veins, and red spots in just a few quick and easy treatments.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK?
Light energy is applied to the skin where it is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.
WHICH TYPE OF VEINS ?
Most red skin lesions, including facial thread veins, rosacea, spider naevi, and port wine stains, can be treated very successfully.
AM I SUITABLE?
Treatment is suitable for most people. Best results are obtained for those with fairer skin, and there is less chance of side effects.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL?
Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but there is no need for anaesthesia and the procedure is actually quite quick. Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot pinprick.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
After treatment, the area may feel warm for a few hours. Rarely, some delicate skin areas such as the cheeks or décolleté can be red and slightly swollen for up to 48 hours.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?
Typically, 3-5 treatments are needed for optimum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single session. Repeat treatments are spaced every 4-6 weeks.
