LEG VESSEL REDUCTION
The non invasive treatment for unsightly broken veins on the legs using the Nd Yag 1064. The technic sends a strong burst of light through the skin into the vein. This coagulates and destroys the blood vessels and leg veins.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Laser treatment sessions 20 minutes plus cooling time, and between 2-5 sessions are usually required.
This is a safe and effective treatment that improves the appearance of the legs. It take approximately 8-12 weeks to see the full healed results. Wearing support tights daily is recommended as this assists the healing process.
Prior to treatment a full consultation and medical history must be done in order to confirm you suitability. Before proceeding with the treatment you will need to sign a consent form and have a patch test.
After treatment you usually notice some redness and slight swelling in the treatment area, occasionally there can be some bruising, but this is only temporary and will fade. As will any discoloration to the skin
WHAT IS THE PRE-TREATMENT ADVICE?
A free, full consultation is carried out prior to treatment to ascertain your suitability and individual treatment needs.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
The treatment is mildly uncomfortable, though sensations vary for people, cooling is used during the treatment to help reduce any discomfort experienced.
AM I SUITABLE?
If you suffer with small superficial red or blue vessels that are visible on the legs or on other parts of the body, red spots primarily on the torso or limbs (Campbell de Morgan spots) and they are causing you distress or embarrassment, a patch test will be carried out to confirm if you are suitable for the treatment.
WHAT SHALL I EXPECT AFTER THE TREATMENT?
The vessels will darken and there will be some slight swelling. And you will experience a tingling sensation. If leg vessels are treated the wearing of compression tights or stockings will aid the healing process, and elevate the legs when possible. Avoid wearing socks that are tight and cause indented marks.
Some of the vessels will have disappeared and some will be smaller, further treatments will be needed to shut these vessels down completely. The red spots will turn grey and over a period of time be reabsorbed by the body.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Occasionally mild swelling can be experienced. In rare circumstances a small blister can form or you can experience a temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. However most people experience little or no side effects, and any reaction disappears within a few hours.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
2-4 treatments are needed for maximum results. Occasionally some small lesions may disappear in just 1 session. Treatments are 8-10 weeks apart.
