Varicose and spider veins are blood vessels that become enlarged and visible due to weakened valves, which cause blood to pool rather than flow to the heart. Our treatment uses a unique wavelength of light to cause selective heating within the lesion only, thus protecting surrounding skin and other tissue.
This is an effective, quick and non-invasive solution that is also suitable to treat superficial vascular and pigmented irregularities such as rosacea. By exposing a pigmented or vascular lesion to short pulses of visible light, the temperature in the highly concentrated area of haemoglobin can be raised sharply, enough to damage the vessel wall and shatter. The vessels are then absorbed by the body, making them less visible.
