What does treatment involve?
Light safely passes through the outermost layers of skin in search of the targeted vascular or pigmented lesions. Without damaging the surrounding skin, the laser's intense light is absorbed by the targeted lesion. The light energy is then converted to heat and this initiates the process of eliminating the lesion. The treated lesion will gradually fade or diminish. In many cases, smaller vessels or pigmentation spots are eliminated in 1 or 2 treatments. Medium or larger vessels may take additional treatments.
Laser treatments can be utilised for small facial areas or for the entire face. Recently, full-face treatments have become increasingly popular. Many people suffer from larger broken capillaries on their nose and cheeks and will have medium and smaller vessels on other facial areas. A full-face treatment will improve the overall facial appearance by creating a more uniform skin colour, and by smoothing the texture of the skin.
The hand piece quickly advances across the skin delivering pulses to the treatment site. A full-face treatment typically lasts between 20 and 40 minutes. Smaller areas, such as the nose, can be treated in 15 minutes. In some cases a topical anesthetic cream is first applied to numb the treatment area. For a short period of time following treatment, a cold compress may be applied to soothe the possible appearance of slight swelling or redness of the skin. Treatments of the face, chest, neck, hands, legs, and abdomen are all done safely and quickly with laser technology.
How many treatments are required?
During your consultation, your skin's condition will be evaluated and a customised treatment program will be suggested. In some cases only one or two treatments are required. However, in many cases three to five or more treatments will be required to achieve optimum results. The number of treatment sessions will depend on the type of lesion to be treated, the location on the body, and its size and colour. In many cases, it is recommended that treatments applied to the face be repeated at 3-4 week intervals. The time intervals of your treatments will be determined during the consultation, where many of these issues and concerns may be addressed.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are rare. Immediately following treatment, the skin may appear flushed, brown pigmented spots may appear darker, and capillaries may be more visible. You will learn more about side effects during your consultation.
