How it works
Lasers produce light of a certain colour (wavelength) and Vascular Lasers produce a wavelength of light that is strongly attracted to the red pigment in blood cells (oxyhaemoglobin). If enough light is concentrated in a blood vessel then heat is generated and if enough heat is produced then the blood vessel can be sealed off, what we call photocoagulation.
of vascular laser
Vascular lasers directly heat the blood vessels located just below the surface of the skin, rather than simply burning through from the top of the skin’s surface. This not only makes the treatment very effective but it also means heating on the surface of the skin is minimal which reduces the risk of skin damage.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
This varies with the nature of the condition, severity and level of improvement desired. Vascular problems do tend to recur and maintenance treatments are often needed.
Our emphasis in treating chronic conditions, such as Rosacea, is to get the condition under control with as few treatments as possible (usually 3-4) and then periodic maintenance (every 6-12 months).
Broken capillaries from sun damage often take 2-3 treatments to clear and then it might be every 1-2 years that further new capillaries might need to be treated with a maintenance treatment. Daily use of sunscreen can help slow the rate of new vessels forming.
Blood vessels around the nose respond well to treatment but nearly always slowly come back, especially if there are any other conditions, such as hay fever or sinus issues, that create congestion in the nasal area.
HOW LONG BETWEEN TREATMENTS?
We like to wait about 4-6 weeks between most vascular laser treatments. With birthmarks we often space treatments every 8 weeks. If the time between treatments is longer, that is fine, it will just take longer to get your best result.

Laser targets and erases broken vessels at the surface of your skin without harming surrounding tissue. As a result, you enjoy clearer skin that looks younger and fresher.
