IPL Vascular

IPL is an ideal option for instantly treating facial vascular blemishes such as broken capillaries, spider veins, thread veins, red spots and cherry angiomas, often found on and around the nose and cheeks.

How does IPL Vascular Work?

Light is absorbed into the blood that is flowing through the targeted vessel. The absorption converts light into heat energy, which raises the temperature of the blood.

When treating surface veins (spider veins), the light is attracted to the haemoglobin within the vein, converting to heat energy, which destroys the lining of the vein wall. Any successfully treated veins will fade and slowly disappear as they are absorbed naturally by the body, similar to the dispersion of a bruise. Blood flow will then be directed into veins deeper within the dermis so they are no longer visible.

During the treatment, the heat generated from vascular laser coagulates the blood inside the vessel causing it to collapse and seal. This process is fast and offers immediate results. Sessions can take from as little as 10 minutes.

If you are considering treatment to reduce the appearance of visible capillaries and blood vessels and veins, IPL Treatment is a safe and effective method.
