IPL Red Vein Removal

IPL Red Vein Removal

A 48 Hour patch test is necessary prior  to all red vein treatments – € 25.00  Redeemable with  your first  treatment.

Facial thread veins or broken red veins (teleangiectasia) are small, unsightly superficial red, purple or blue veins that can appear around the nose and on both the cheeks and chin. These broken veins appear when the vein dilates and become larger so they become visible through the transparency of the skin.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) emits light which is absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to the point where they disappear. After the treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving almost no trace of the original vein. Before the Intense Pulsed Light treatment commences, a thin layer of chilled gel is applied to the skin to aid light absorption by the blood vessel. The light is then pulsed over the area to be treated. The chilled gel is then removed. During the treatment, protective eye-wear will be worn.

Four to six treatments are usually required for best results, depending on skin type and appearance of veins.

Treatment time is relatively quick and can typically range from 10 minutes for a single session to up to 30 mins.
