Vascular TreatmentsAesthetics Clinic based @ Simply Gym, Cheltenham
Providing a solution to facial problems such as red flushing (Rosacea), thread veins, red spots, birthmark and port wine stains for both men and women.
LASER VEIN REMOVAL
Getting rid of unsightly veins is a treatment that many people desire, but very few people realise how simple the process actually is. We can provide a long-term solution to facial problems such as red flushing (Rosacea), thread veins, red spots, birthmark and port wine stains in just a few quick easy treatments.
Prior to treatment, you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How does the treatment work?
Light energy is applied to the skin where it is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.
Which type of veins can be treated?
Most red skin lesions, including facial thread veins, rosacea, spider naevi and port wine stains, can be treated very successfully. Depending on the lesions, leg vessels can also respond well to treatments.
How is treatment carried out?
The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. During treatment, protective eyewear will be provided.
Am I suitable for treatment?
Treatment is suitable for most people. Best results are obtained for those with fair skin, and there is less chance of side effects.
How does the treatment feel?
Treatments can be mildly uncomfortable, but no anaesthesia is required, and the procedure is actually quite quick. Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot pinprick.
Are there any side effects?
After treatment, the area may feel warm for a few hours. Rarely, some delicate skin areas such as the cheeks can be red and slightly swollen for up to 48 hours. Though very rare, there is a chance a small blister may form and there could be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
How long does each treatment take?
Treatments typically take from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the type and size of the lesion.
How many treatments are required?
Typically, 3 to 5 treatments are needed for optimum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single session. Repeat treatments are spaced every 4 to 6 weeks.
