Laser Nd-Yag 1064 nm is one of the best technologies available to safely and quickly treat leg veins, spider veins and broken capillaries up to 4mm in diameter. Laser vein treatment is a proven, non-invasive method of diminishing or eliminating not only veins but also cherry haemangioma, rosacea and other types of telangiectasias. Lasers produce a beam of highly concentrated light that is absorbed by haemoglobin in the dilated blood vessel. It causes the blood to coagulate and the unwanted vessel to instantly or gradually disappear. In the last several years, laser has become a treatment of choice for treating unsightly broken and dilated vessels on the face and legs. Spider veins on the face and legs bother millions of people. Spider veins are red, blush or purple veins that can result from sun exposures, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the ageing process or heredity.
There is no down time after your treatment and there is no need for you to wear compression stockings. In order to have the optimal result and longevity of laser therapy, two or three treatments, two months apart, are recommended. Most patients see excellent improvements after just 1 treatment for facial veins. Cherry haemangioma (red dots on the body) usually only require one, or rarely two, treatments.
