Leg veins, spider veins and other benign vascular lesions are among the most frequent and challenging aesthetic complaints. Lumenis integrates two highly effective technologies to provide the most effective clinical solution for this complex condition:
The versatility of Intense Pulsed Light, at a range of 515 to 1200 nm, for reaching the small and superficial red vessels; and high-energy pulsed laser light at 1064 nm to treat deeper blue veins.
The result is the most comprehensive system available today that provides unparalleled performance in the non-invasive treatment of the full range of vascular structures, including:
- Non Invasive
- State of the art technology
- Price:€125 to €250
Depending on the size of area to be treated
What type of Leg veins can be treated ?
- Deeper, larger reticular and feeder veins up to 3 mm in diameter and 5 mm in depth.
- Spider complexes and superficial telangiectasias
- Telangiectatic matting and hemosiderin staining associated with sclerothera.
Many men and women will experience some redness or visible thread veins at some stage during their life on the facial or body areas. They will often become more obvious from the age of 35 onwards. There may be some genetic influence but environmental exposure UVA, UVB and lfe style factors can contribute and exacerbate the condition. People who stand a lot are more prone to visable veins on the legs.
Fortunately with advances in technology, Laser can now successfully treat these visible vessels and get rid of them permanently. The gold standard treatment is Yag 1064 Medical Grade Laser.
How does it work?
During treatment larger veins are completely closed and sealed, while smaller ones are effectively dissolved. This prevents the return of blood flow and recurrence of unsightly veins. An additional benefit is that the long wavelength laser energy easily passes through the melanin barrier of the skin’s surface and does not interfere with pigment, enabling successful treatment of any skin type at any time during the year. Even better, this vein treatment is administered with little discomfort to the patient, no downtime and no compression wrapping. Treatment is fast and usually completed in just a few sessions
How does it feel?
Most clients describe the sensation to be like the snap of a rubber band on the skin. Depending on the size and extent of vessels being treated many clients will see an improvement after just one treatment, however it is recommended to complete a course of treatment for maximum benefit. Darker or purplish veins can be more difficult to remove and may require multiple treatments. Most people will see a very satisfactory result in 2 to 5 treatments.
How often will I need treatment?
Laser leg vein treatments are usually spaced at four to six week intervals. Treatment times are usually 15 to 30 mins depending on the amount of vessels to be treated.
As with all our treatments, a complementary consultation is offered before treatment.
