How is the treatment carried out?
You will be asked to put on protective eye care. A layer of chilled gel is applied to the area to guide the light into the skin. The light applicator is placed on the gel and skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighboring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. The chilled gel is wiped off and the area moisturized.
Am I suitable for treatment?
The fairer the skin, the easier the treatment. The best response is seen with small thread veins, spider veins and rosacea. If there are any areas of broken skin, treatment has to be delayed until the area has completely healed.
How does the treatment feel?
No anesthesia is required and most patients describe the discomfort as stated earlier there is an ice crystal that immediately cools the area and discomfort . Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot pin prick.
The IPL system is a fast and gentle treatment solution for permanent removal of blood vessels whether small red vessels or bigger spider veins and varicose veins.
Many patients suffer from so-called vascular lesions, enlarged blood vessels in the face or on other parts of the body. Traditional options for treating these blood vessels are often painful, time-consuming or just not suitable for removing very fine vessels.
Our modern IPL system is an effective and gentle alternative. Usually one or two treatments are enough to significantly reduce or completely eliminate vessels and areas of redness.
Which vascular situations can be treated with the IPL system?
Small red vessels, single or branched, such as rosacea vascular skin changes that cover large areas, such as port-wine stains deeper lying changed vessels such as spider veins varicose veins and so-called star burst varices.
How does the IPL treat my vessels and capillaries?
The light of the laser or IPL system penetrates the surrounding tissue and unleashes its effect when it encounters the vein. The red blood cells absorb the light energy, heating the blood. The vessel walls then collapse, the vessel is blocked and the flow of the blood is stopped. Varicose veins are treated with an endovascular fiber. The fiber directs the full light energy into the vessel and thereby seals it from inside. The closed vessels die and are then absorbed by the body.
As stated earlier the IPL7 has an ice crystal that immediately cools the area .No longer do you need painful injections to be free of these unsightly spider and vericose veins. Vericose veins up to 3mm in size can effectively be eliminated or reduced in appearance quickly and easily with minimal discomfort if any . Yet you can be reassured because your technician will always work within your tolerance level to deliver an effective treatment to your satisfaction. The treatment time depends on the form, size and location of the vessel as well as your skin type. Small red vessels can usually be removed in only one to three sessions and are normally invisible directly after the treatment. Several sessions may be necessary to remove bigger veins. A small crust may appear on the treated area after treatment and a brownish shadow of the vein may remain visible. These side effects will disappear after only a few days to a week. Regular applications of pertroleum jelly have been known to be the most effective remedy in promoting healing and preventing scars.
