There are several ways to removal unsightly blood vessels that appear on the surface of the skin. Techniques such as diathermy and sclerotherapy involve the insertion of a needle into the vein and the application of a current or a chemical to kill the vessel. Both of these techniques are invasive and can cause significant skin trauma, as well as requiring several long treatment sessions.
Treatment with light (intense pulsed and laser) is unique as it destroys unsightly blood vessels by sending very short pulses of light into the skin, destroying the vein using heat. The vessels shrink over the following weeks and are re-absorbed by the body.
All areas of the body can be treated, and particular success is seen with facial problems such as permanent red flushing, broken thread veins and red spots. The treatments are fast, allowing the whole area or multiple areas to be treated at each monthly session. As the light pulse is very short, only a moderate sensation is felt during treatment. With each treatment the number of visible vessels decline.
