Intense Pulsed Light emits light which is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. The vessels then quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little to no trace of the original lesion. Which types of veins can be treated?
Most red skin lesions including facial thread veins, rosacea, spider naevi, port wine stains can be treated with Intense Pulsed Light. Am I a Viable Candidate for Treatment?
Treatment is suitable for almost everyone, however, the best results are achieved on those with fair skin, and they also enjoy less of a chance of side effects. The best responses are seen with facial thread veins, spider naevi and rosacea. How Many Treatments are Necessary?
Between 3 and 5 treatments provide maximum results, though small lesions may clear in a single session. Additional treatments are spaced every 4 to 6 weeks.
Long Pulsed 1064nm Nd:YAG
Energy of the Nd:YAG light is delivered to the blood inside the vessel with an ideal combination of pulses. The result is more thorough heating of the entire volume of blood (ideal for treating veins up to 4mm in diameter).
