Spider Veins or Thread Veins are very thin and superficial veins usually red in colour but also purple. They affect about 30% of the population both men and women and they are mainly found in the face, arms and legs.
Spider Veins can be hereditary and are also associated with hormonal changes, alcohol consumption, exposure to extreme weather, and prolonged standing.
Elos IPL Spider Veins & Rosacea Treatments work by applying gentle light pulses and radio frequency to the spider veins causing the blood inside them to coagulate and harden. The dried out blood vessels are then naturally absorbed by the body and no longer visible.
Elos IPL is a very effective treatment as it specifically targets the Spider Veins and leaves the surrounding skin practically untouched. This is an advantage over Laser treatment and can be used to treat larger veins.
Rosacea is a common but poorly understood facial disorder. Symptoms are redness of the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead, and visible blood vessels on the face. While the cause of Rosacea is unknown and there is no cure, treatments are recommended to keep it under control before it becomes increasingly severe. If left untreated the condition may cause a thickening and enlargement of the skin, most frequently around the nose. It can also cause irritation of the eyes.
Elos IPL will effectively treat the visible capillaries and flushing, as well as reduce the progression of Rosacea. Some of the effects are visible immediately however it normally takes between 2-4 weeks for the skin to clear.
Are the Elos IPL Spider Veins and Rosacea Treatments painful?
For the most part, Elos IPL treatments are pain free, however in certain areas you may experience a hot, pin prick like feeling as the light hits the affected area. This is normal and easily tolerated.
What happens after the treatment?
After an Elos IPL Spider Vein and Rosacea treatment there may be some redness of the skin for around 24 hours but this is not always the case.
