Vascular laser is used to eradicate broken capillaries on the face, neckand décolletage.
Our Nd Yag Cutera Laser uses advanced technology to treat a range of face and body veins, such as tiny spider veins, as well as diffuse redness. It is a safe and effective treatment, which is quick and has little to no downtime. Patients can relax as the laser delivers pulses of light energy, which is used to destroy the blood vessel. The blood flow is also redirected to veins that are deeper below the skin’s surface. This treatment is suitable for a variety of patients, including men and women, as well as light, tanned and dark skin.
The number of treatments can vary from patient to patient. This will depend on the colour and number of the vessels that are being treated.
What causes broken capillaries?
Capillaries are the tiny blood vessels just below the surface of the skin. They are extremely fragile, easily damaged and, until recently, difficult to repair. As we age, they sometimes appear around the nose, cheeks and chin. Whether caused by heredity or excessive exposure to sun and wind, their appearance can be aggravated by environmental factors such as spicy food, wine or exercise, or by emotional responses.
How can laser treatment help?
Heat from the laser, applied directly to the affected area, breaks down the already damaged walls of the capillaries, causing them to collapse in on themselves. The destroyed capillaries are then reabsorbed by the body, disappearing entirely. The laser affects only the red area, leaving normal surrounding tissue unaffected.
What results can I expect?
1-4 treatments may be required depending on client requirements.
Does vascular laser therapy hurt?
Clients report this treatment as relatively pain free according to individual pain thresholds. It has been described as feeling like an elastic band snapping against the skin. This non-invasive, safe treatment may induce some redness for a day and/or some minor swelling for up to three days.
