Laser therapy is an effective way of dealing with vascular lesions, best described as small capillaries at top of the skins surface. Laser Therapy is perfect for improving the condition of your skin and reducing visible imperfections such as the small capillaries at the top of the skins surface. At LUSH Skin & Laser Clinic we operate Candela & Lutronic medical grade lasers; the industry’s premier and most powerful lasers, delivering optimal results with minimal side effects.
Small capillaries that appear on the nose, cheeks and chin can be safely treated with laser treatment. Laser vascular treatment effectively treats these vessels by targeting the blood supply within the small vessel with pin point precision. Heat from the laser collapses the capillary wall causing the vessel to shut down and disappear. This highly effective treatment is combined with an “Alex Toning” laser treatment for an overall less red complexion.
Treatments are very comfortable thanks to the Zimmer Cooling Device which works alongside the laser during treatment. This state of the art cooling device delivers chilled air directly onto the skin as the laser fires ensuring comfort is maintained.
At LUSH Skin & Laser Clinic we offer treatments for the following vascular lesions:
- Telangiectasia (Facial and Leg Vessels)
- Cherry Angioma
- Diffuse Erythema (Redness) or Facial Flushing
- Poikiloderma of Civatte (Combination of Pigmentation and Vessels)
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions a patient needs to obtain optimal results will depend on: skin type, size of vessel, depth of vessel and the fluence (energy) required in treatment. On average, most patients will need a minimum of 4 – 6 treatment.
What are the post treatment changes?
The vessels will either immediately disappear (though this may be disguised by general erythema created by heat, or coagulate (turn grey) or take 2 to 5 days to minimise or disappear.
How do I maintain the results?
Treated vessels and/or new vessels may re-appear in the future, so a maintenance program may be recommended.
