They are grouped together in capillary beds, or clusters of capillaries.
It is suggested that both spider veins and dilated capillaries appear as a result of poor circulation brought on by various causes.
Laser therapy is the most effective and affordable way of dealing with facial vascular lesions. The treatment is fast and we use the ND-YAG laser to ensure the best results. Laser Therapy is perfect for improving the condition of your skin and reducing visible imperfections.

How does it work?
By exposing a pigmented or vascular lesion to ND-YAG laser, 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.
What can I expect during and after treatment?
Depending on your skin type (and the lesion being treated) some redness and swelling may be visible, but will usually subside around 48 hours after treatment. lesions may appear darker around 5-7 days later. During treatment, some patients may feel a mild discomfort, but there isn’t any need for numbing agents or anesthetic. The treatment is quick and effective, usually requiring around 3-6 sessions once every 4-6 weeks.
Am I suitable for the treatment?
Treatment is suitable for most people. However, prior to treatment a free consultation is mandatory during which a medical history and assessment of the desired treatment area is carried out. This will then allow the practitioner to determine suitability for treatment, how many sessions required and the expected results.
