Vascular lesions appear as a result of abnormalities with the blood vessels underneath our skin. Causes and symptoms may vary whether you are currently dealing with diffuse redness, broken capillaries, spider veins, rosacea, leg veins, and hemangiomas or port-wine stains. However, the cosmetic issue remains the same, resulting in low confidence for those who have it. If you are one of those people and are looking for a treatment to improve the appearance of your skin, then our Laser vein removal treatment is the one that will surely boost your confidence!
What is the Laser vein removal treatment?
For this treatment, our skin care specialist will be using the Nordlys Ellipse IPL. This system has narrowband technology that targets your blood vessels deep within your skin, effectively diminishing the resulting vascular lesions that appear on the surface. This works when the high-intensity pulsed light is converted into heat to destroy your blood vessels in areas of concern, while leaving the surrounding vessels untouched.
What can you expect?
Prior to your laser vein removal treatment, you will meet with one of our cosmetic doctors for a consultation. They will discuss your treatment goals and figure out how many sessions you will need to achieve your desired cosmetic results.
Many patients will see improvement after only one session but up to 3 sessions might be required to attain maximal improvement, depending on the location and number of vessels to be treated. Smaller vessels can disappear immediately after treatment while larger ones fade away more gradually over the next few weeks.
It is also extremely important that you avoid sun exposure 4 weeks before and after your treatment . This ensures that your skin will not be extremely sensitive to the light treatment, decreasing the risks of unwanted side effects.
Nordlys Ellipse IPL uses exclusive selective wavelength technology to deliver narrowband light, which means there will be less heat on the skin resulting in a comfortable treatment . The procedure will generally take between 20-30 minutes, depending on the treatable area.
After the treatment, you may notice some swelling and redness, which will disappear in 1-4 days.
To help with the healing process, our skin specialist will prescribe you an ointment to apply on the treated areas. The use of cold damp cloth on your skin may also provide healing benefits.
