Treatment for facial thread veins/broken capillaries at Laserderm

Are you constantly wearing make-up to cover you facial thread veins?

The Laserderm Clinic has a treatment to correct your complexion so you no longer have to try to cover your thread veins. The Ellipse intense pulsed light treatment, available at Laserderm Clinics, uses short safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to quickly remove thin veins (technically called telangiectasias ) from your face.

How does ellipse pulsed light treatment work?

A thread vein is a small blood vessel near the surface of the skin. Blood contains haemoglobin that absorbs the light and converts it into heat, destroying the protein in the wall of the thread vein. As a result the veins will gradually, and safely, disappear after the treatment.

Which thread veins can be treated?

The most common treatments are for superficial veins in the facial or chest areas.

As the treatment relies on absorption of light by the haemoglobin in the blood, the most effective results are seen with light skin.

How many Ellipse treatments do I need?

The numbers of treatment depends on the body site and the severity of the thread vein. Clinical studies have confirmed that between one and four treatments usually are needed, and these are timed approximately one month apart.

The cost is €130 per treatment which includes a complimentary check-up to ensure excellent results.
