“Say Goodbye to Facial Veins and Rosacea with Laser Therapy”


Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about your facial veins and redness caused by rosacea? If so, you’re not alone. Many people struggle with these conditions, which can be difficult to treat with traditional methods. Fortunately, laser therapy offers a safe and effective solution that can help you achieve clearer, smoother skin.

How it works

Laser vein treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses high-energy laser light to target and destroy unsightly veins on the face. The laser heats up the vein, causing it to collapse and eventually fade from view. Similarly, laser therapy for rosacea is a non-invasive treatment that can help reduce redness, inflammation, and visible blood vessels on the face. The laser targets the blood vessels under the skin, causing them to coagulate and shrink, resulting in a reduction in redness and a more even skin tone. These treatments are quick and require little to no downtime.

Why we use Vascular Laser

One of the primary benefits of vascular laser treatment for facial redness and rosacea is its precision. The laser targets only the blood vessels causing the discoloration, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. This means that you can achieve significant results without the risks and side effects associated with more invasive treatments.

Another benefit of vascular laser treatment is that it can provide long-lasting results. While multiple sessions may be required depending on the severity of your condition, most patients experience a significant improvement in the appearance of their skin that can last for years.

Expected result

The expected results from vascular laser treatment for facial redness and rosacea vary depending on the individual. However, many patients see a noticeable reduction in redness and visible blood vessels after just one session. Over time, the treated vessels are absorbed by the body, resulting in a clearer, more even complexion.

What conditions do vascular lasers treat?

Vascular lasers are the treatment of choice for red blemishes such as redness of the face, neck and chest, rosacea, broken capillaries, spider naevi, angiomas, port wine birthmarks, red scars including keloid scars, facial and nose veins, flushing and red spots on the body.

What is the difference between IPL and vascular laser?

Vascular lasers produce light energy of just one wavelength which is only absorbed by blood. These lasers therefore treat only red blemishes in the skin, but do so very precisely and efficiently. IPL on the other hand produces light that contains a range of different wavelengths which collectively target a variety of red as well as brown skin blemishes.

Is treatment permanent?

Sometimes. Improvements are usually long lasting over a number of years but, depending on the condition, maintenance treatments may be needed from time to time.

What can I expect following the laser treatment?
  • Mild swelling and erythema associate with mild sunburn-like sensation for up to 2-3 days post treatment.
  • Pigmented lesions (brown spots and freckles) usually darken after the treatment and mild crusting begins to form within a few days. Micro crust will gradually flake off over the next 2-3 weeks.
  • If you develop purplish discoloration or bruising, this may last for 1-2 weeks
  • Anticipate some social downtime following your treatment (3-5 days)
What are the risks of vascular laser treatment?

Redness, swelling, bruising, blistering and/or crusting, infection including reactivation of cold sores, pigment changes (brown or white marks), scarring.

Is treatment painful?

Treatments are quick, typically taking not more than a few minutes. Whilst you will experience a definite sensation, local anaesthesia is rarely needed.

How soon will I see results?

Some vessels may show visible disappearance immediately while others gradually fade over a few weeks to a month.

How many treatments will I need?

One or two treatments usually eliminate the majority of common red blemishes, though certain conditions may require a course of treatments. Port wine birthmarks, for example, often require multiple treatments over many months.
