Vascular/vein therapy for the face

As we age an increase in the number of visible facial veins is inevitable. Using our YAG 1064 laser, we are now able to eliminate unsightly facial veins including facial telangiectasia and spider vein. The laser delivers pulses of light energy, which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel, which is later reabsorbed by your body.

Frequently asked questions

How many treatments will I need?
Most patients find that just one or two treatments are sufficient.

What happens after the treatment?
Following your treatment, some redness or bruising may occur, however with the finer veins there are usually no after effects.

Who is a good candidate for vein treatments?
Our laser design and long wavelength allows treatment of patients of all skin tones.

Do the treatments hurt?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anaesthesia or pain medication is typically required, some patients opt to use a topical anesthetic. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
