Redness, Broken Capillaries, Rosacea and Veins
Leg and Facial veins are bothersome and at best unattractive at worst. Fortunately with combined medical and cosmetic laser treatment, you can make yourself look good and feel a whole lot better - often times with only one or two visits.
Here at Luminosity we have the latest in laser technology. The Fotona Laser System and NdYAG Lasers are medical grade 4 lasers and are the most efficient in reducing and removing unsightly capillaries and spider veins.
Vascular lasers are those that emit a specific wavelength of light that is selectively absorbed by the haemoglobin (red pigment) in blood vessels. This selectivity means vascular lasers can remove vascular/red blemishes without damaging the surrounding skin.
How does a vascular laser work?
Laser light penetrates the outer layers of skin to reach the blood vessels below. Targeted blood vessels selectively absorb the energy in the beam and are destroyed by the brief but intense heat created. The body removes the damaged vessels gradually to normalise the skin’s appearance. Surrounding tissue is unaffected because it does not selectively absorb this wavelength of light. Vascular lasers are the ideal treatment for blood vessels and red blemishes close to the surface of the skin, particularly on the face, neck and chest. Vascular lasers produce light energy of just one wavelength which is only absorbed by blood.
These lasers therefore treat only red blemishes in the skin, but do so very precisely and efficiently. What conditions do vascular lasers treat? Vascular lasers are the treatment of choice for red blemishes such as redness of the face, neck and chest, rosacea, broken capillaries, spider naevi, angiomas, port wine birthmarks, red scars including keloid scars, facial and nose veins, flushing and red spots on the body.
