Spider veins (telangiectasia) are small (1mm diameter), superficial purple or red broken dilated capillaries often irregular in shape; similar to a spider’s web.

Telangiectasia may appear anywhere on the body, but are more commonly found on the face and legs. Reticular veins are the deeper, thicker (2-3mm diameter) darker veins found on face, thighs and lower legs. Reticular (feeder) veins are larger than spider veins and by eliminating reticular veins will in turn help to reduce spider veins.

Varicose veins are lumpy, swollen veins that protrude above the skin’s surface. Generally found on the legs, varicose veins are the result of faulty vein valves or weak vein walls.

The veins in the legs have the toughest job of carrying blood back to the heart. They endure the most pressure; pressure that can overcome the strength of these one-way valves. The force of gravity, and the task of carrying the blood from the bottom of the body up to the heart make the legs the primary location for varicose and spider veins.

Rosacea is a condition involving the face that results in a ‘blush’ or redness and progresses from intermittent to consistent. It is associated with prominent blood vessels, open pores and skin eruption similar to acne. Symptoms usually commence between the ages of 30 to 50.

Treatment explained

The laser energy is absorbed by the haemoglobin in the vein which then collapses and is eliminated by the body. When the laser light is absorbed, it is converted into heat causing the walls of the veins to collapse and blood flow to cease. The laser light achieves vein removal by destroying the vein but without causing damage to the surrounding skin.

A comprehensive and informative consultation will be carried out prior to treatment.
