We use a medical grade laser by industry leaders Fotona, to routinely treat a wide range of vascular lesions and unsightly veins in all skin types. This is a long term solution that will make veins and other vascular issues a thing of the past.

Spider veins, varicose veins, Cherry Spots (haemangioma), thread veins, facial veins and redness and rosacea are all safely and effectively treated at our clinic. For veins that are more obstinate we also offer sclerotherapy - the injection of a substance into the vein to close it down.

How does it work?

Our Nd:YAG laser is ideal for treating vascular lesions and veins because the beams are naturally drawn to the haemoglobin in the blood vessels. The energy is then absorbed into the vein and undergoes heat conversion - this enables it to destroy the walls of the vein. The laser penetrates the skin to a depth of 5 to 6mm which makes the treatment highly effective, and far more efficient than IPL or low depth lasers, when treating problems of this type.

What you need to know about treating vascular lesions

  • The procedure is completely safe because the blood which supplies the area being treated is facilitated by other vessels. Dead tissue from the destroyed vein is dealt with by the body in the same way that it deals with bruising.
  • The procedure is not completely pain-free but the majority of our clients report that it is perfectly tolerable. You will feel a short stinging sensation but the treatment as a whole is very quick.
  • How many sessions you need depends on the type of lesion and where it is on your body. Cherry Spots can usually be dealt with in one session whilst an area of spider veins on the legs normally needs 2 to 3 treatments.
  • There are no real side effects from the treatment although some patients may blister or scab on the site of the treatment. This is nothing to worry about and actually indicates that the removal of the lesion was highly successful. You may also find that the skin around the site is slightly whiter but this should disappear within 4 weeks.
