Laser treatments are now a routine procedure for the removal of many types of vascular concerns of the face and body. The perfect vascular solution is long-pulse Nd:YAG laser.
The energy from the laser is absorbed by the blood in the vein and converted into heat, destroying the vein walls. Nd:YAG light also targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is important for ensuring the long-term efficacy of the treatment.
This process is perfectly safe as the blood supply to the treated area is maintained by other vessels and the dead tissue is removed by the body in the same way as a bruise.
Independent research shows that patients treated with Nd:YAG lasers see a quick and dramatic regression in vascular lesions.
The location of the lesion will determine what strength of treatment we are able to use; most leg and facial veins will see permanent regression to a specific vein area with 2-3 treatments.
