Red veins are common place and they are a cosmetic nuisance, often occurring around the nose and cheeks, but also on many other areas of the body. Red veins, especially facial ones, can often be treated in one session. Rosacea is a skin condition that causes facial flushing, red veins and red spots and it is estimated to affect over 45 million people worldwide. Causes range from too much sun and other lifestyle factors and hormonal changes or it might just be down to your genes - people of Celtic descend are particularly prone. We have a fast and simple solution. Two to three IPL skin treatments are usually enough to leave you with a smoother, clearer brighter complexion.
Both Intense Pulsed Light and Laser systems emit light which is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original
Rosacea and Red Vein treatments start at £70 per session.
Typically 3 to 5 treatments are needed for maximum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single session. Repeat treatments are spaced every 4 to 6 weeks. Additional periodic treatments will likely be necessary to remove newly-formed capillaries.
Please arrive wearing no make-up or moisturiser or any other skin product. We need clean naked skin. Please stay out of the sun for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment. Bring any medications with you so we can check them against our contra-indications list and take medical advice if necessary.
After treatment the area may feel warm for a few hours. Rarely some delicate skin areas such as the cheeks or décolleté can be red and slightly swollen for up to 48 hours. Though very rare, there is a chance a small blister may form and there could be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
