What is it laser vein removal?
Dilated vessel malformations that are positioned close to the surface of the skin can give a blueish discolouration and clear visibility of the vein pathway. However if the vein isn't necessary to the functioning of the body or plays an important role then we can seek to remove them. This can be carried out with the use of a IPL laser. This is a non-invasive treatment which affectively removes the appearance of veins. This is due to the emission of high energy waves which are then absorbed by the vascular structure. This then destroys the veins within the area and causes them to redirect to a deep area in which they can reform. The treatment shouldn't hurt but may feel slightly uncomfortable at times and you should be able to return to your daily activities almost instantly. We do recommend applying a factor 50 sun cream to protect the newly exposed areas of skin.
What will happen on the day of laser vein removal treatment?
- Following your consultation and test patch 2 weeks prior to treatment, a medical questionnaire will be filled out which will deem whether you are suitable for treatment.
- A series of pictures will be taken to allow us to compare the outcome of your treatments to ensure we reach your desired result.
- Your skin will then be cleansed and marked out. A white pencil will be used to cover any moles on the skin as we do not want the laser to affect them.
- The procedure will begin and should take no longer than an hour.
- It is important to apply suncream to the area post treatment. As a new layer of skin is exposed, it is important to keep it as healthy as possible.
