Cosmetic Laser Treatments for Visible Vein Removal
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a form of laser treatment that is physically non-invasive. It utilises the power of light energy and photons to target cells underneath the surface of the skin. Medical lasers are developed to target specific areas or cells within a controlled and very precise fashion. When it comes to cosmetic treatments, these devices are feasible for a variety of applications, including hair removal and visible vein removal. IPL treatments can also be used safely on facial regions.
How Does It Work?
The Palomar IPL hand-held device that we use to diminish visible spider veins on the surface of the skin targets damaged blood vessels. The laser generates light energy pulses that penetrate the surface of the skin, at which point the energy is converted into heat energy. The heat energy targets damaged blood vessels to collapse them and diminish the appearance of spider veins on the surface. The hand-held device features an onboard computer that regulates the frequency of the light energy being generated by the machine, making this device one of the most advanced on today’s market.
What Can I Expect?
As is the case with most laser treatments, you can expect minimal downtime and recovery times from IPL facial vein treatment. Since this device produces light energy, it is safe to use in facial areas when your eyes are protected. The light energy bypasses healthy cells, which results in accurate and controlled treatment solutions. Therefore, you can expect the desired results once the area is fully healed after the treatment. Dependent on the patient, you might require multiple treatments to truly diminish the appearance of a specific spider vein.
The healing process usually takes 7 days to allow the skin to completely heal from the exposure of the laser. You can expect results 4 to 6 weeks after your skin has healed. If you need multiple treatments, you must recover from the previous treatment first, which implies that repeat treatments can occur 4 to 6 weeks apart. It can take between 1 and 6 treatments to deal with visible spider veins. However, every case is unique and will be treated as such. Therefore, we encourage you to consult one of our medical professionals to get a better understanding of this treatment when you want to address visible facial veins.
