Intense Pulsed Light Red Vein Removal
How does the treatment work?

The specific wavelength of light produced by IPL Vein Removal targets the hemoglobin in your blood vessels. As your blood vessel absorb the light, your unwanted vein is destroyed. Following treatment the vessels quickly clear and are re-absorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace f the original lesion. IPL Vein Removal works for both varicose veins and spider veins, however, these treatments work best on spider veins. IPL treatments for spider veins are so effective because spider veins are closer to your skin’s surface, an area that light-based treatments will safely and effectively treat. IPL Vein Removal is gentle enough to work on facial veins and powerful enough to work on smaller leg veins
Which types of veins can be treated?
This procedure is appropriate for a broad range of vessels, with particularly good results for spider veins and broken capillaries (known as telangiectasia).

Facial thread veins,
Spider Naevi,
Port Wine Stains
Legs veins up to 3mm diameter (by laser).

How is the treatment carried out?
You will be asked to put on goggles to protect your eyes.
A layer of chilled gel is applied to the area to guide the light into the skin.
The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.
The chilled gel is removed and the area moisturised.

Am I suitable for treatment?
The fairer the skin, the easier the treatment. The best response is seen with small thread veins, spider naevi and rosacea. If there are any areas of broken skin, treatment has to be delayed until the area has completely healed.

How does the treatment feel?
No anaesthesia is required and most patients describe the discomfort as moderate and acceptable.
Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot pin prick.

Are there any side effects?
Redness and a warm sensation are normal after treatment.
A cool pack may be applied to ease these symptoms.
The vessels should fade quickly, and some disappear immediately.

How long does each treatment take?
Treatments typically take from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the type and size of lesion.

How many treatments are necessary?
Typically 1 -5 treatments are needed for maximum results, spaced approximately every 4 to 6 weeks.
