CAPILLARY TREATMENT

ABOUT

Blast away your broken capillaries! Spider veins and broken capillaries are dilated or enlarged blood vessels just beneath the surface of the skin – a condition that can affect our confidence. Luckily there is a safe, affordable and effective solution.

Broken capillaries can be treated by both IPL and Laser. This advanced technology emits a light that blasts the broken capillaries, causing the body to break them down and disperse via the lymphatic system. This process can take a few weeks to occur.

The treatment uses Medical grade lasers the Palomar StarLux – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Candela’s ND:YAG 1064nm Laser.

This non-invasive, safe and trusted treatment will leave you with a clearer complexion, more rejuvenated skin by minimising the appearance of unwanted broken capillaries or visible spider veins. Best of all, it is an affordable treatment with virtually minimal downtime.

BENEFITS
  • Reduced and eliminate the visibility of blood vessels
  • Eliminate spider veins
  • Long lasting results with minimal recovery time
  • Quick and effective treatment
  • No side effects

AFTERCARE

Immediately after treatment, the problem area may appear darker or more prominent than before.

This will gradually reduce over the next 24 hours.

A mild sunburn-like reaction is normal

Swelling, bruising & redness may occur & last up to 72 hours, in some cases prolonged redness & blistering may be experienced.

  • Apply a cold compress or icepacks for 10 mins per hour to reduce heat in the skin.
  • Apply a cooling gel, ask about RESULTS ACTIVE RECOVERY.
  • Use only mineral based makeup for 48hrs after treatment. Ask about our VELVET CO. mineral makeup.

Until all redness has gone, avoid:

  • Using AHA, BHA or Vitamin A products.
  • Waxing the area.
  • Swimming pools & spas with chemicals/chlorine.
  • Activities that cause excessive perspiration.

The area may blister, scab or crust

It usually heals in 7-10 days & will continue to fade over the next 2-4 weeks.

  • Do not pick, scratch or remove scabs, this can lead to infection & permanent scarring.
  • You can aid healing with medicated, anti-bacterial ointment.
  • Avoid direct sunlight on the area. Apply SPF 50+ daily, ask about RESULTS PROTECT SPF 50+

There is a possibility of hair-loss in the treated area

Do not book laser or laser hair removal on the treated area for at least 7 days after treatment.

If you experience prolonged redness, swelling, infection or any other issue with the treated skin, contact your clinic. In some cases we may advise you to contact your GP.

FAQ

Does it hurt?

You may feel a short burst of heat as the light targets the broken capillaries, some people describe the sensation as a tingling or a slight pinching sensation. All our lasers are accompanied by a cooling system that makes the treatment comfortable and pain-free!

What can I expect after treatment?

The treated area will be red and slightly raised or swollen directly after treatment. An ice pack applied to the treated area will help soothe and calm the swelling. Side effects generally subside within a few days after treatment, however, on rare occasions the skin may look slightly bruised and capillaries look darker for up to a few weeks. Sometimes, results can be seen after your first treatment where some broken capillaries may disappear on the spot. Other times, it may take a few treatments to achieve the desired results.

Why are there two technologies used for treatment?

Each of the technologies we use is specific to certain treatment requirements. We recommend facial capillaries be treated with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) as it can be quite easily targeted to fine detail areas. Candela’s ND:YAG Laser is more suitable for broken capillaries or spider veins found in other parts of the body as it is more suitable to larger treatment areas due to its ability to be customised more accurately in both depth and width.

What causes Broken Capillaries?

Broken capillaries are most often caused by environmental factors including wind and sun damage. They can also be caused by hereditary factors, aging, extreme temperatures, hormone therapy, stress and fatigue, and oral contraception.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Broken capillary treatments are safe for all skin types and all vein appearances, although not recommended for raised veins such as varicose veins. Every session is individualised to your needs, by our highly trained specialists who will also provide you with a customised treatment plan. The IPL treatment is recommended for most people, except those who are affected by muscular disorders, pregnant or breastfeeding.

Is this treatment safe?

Absolutely! Laser systems are used worldwide – and our specific technologies are renowned for their high quality as well as being rated in the world’s top two medically-graded technologies. Laser technologies treat only targeted areas without affecting the surrounding skin.
