Laser vein removal

A common concern as we age, broken capillaries are caused by damaged or dilated veins just below the skin's surface, resulting in blotchy patches, redness and spider-like veins across the skin. Broken capillaries can manifest into painful and unsightly varicose veins, so early treatment is very beneficial.

Laser vascular treatments remove broken capillaries and the associated redness and spider veins, for smooth, clear and blemish-free skin.

Laser vein removal is ideal for the treatment of:

  • Broken capillaries 
  • Cherry angiomas
  • Spider veins
  • Varicose veins
  • Facial spider naevi

How laser vein removal works

Broken capillaries, redness, spider veins and varicose veins can be treated with various laser modalities. A laser beam is applied to visible blood vessels to help you achieve smoother skin free from discolouration and discomfort.

Patients will differ in terms of their comfort depending on the severity of the capillary damage and the length of treatment. Laser therapy will create mild sensations similar to IPL. Our team may recommend a treatment course for the underlying redness and the blood vessels that are visible across the skin.

For faster recovery, we may incorporate vitamin B in the treatment of redness and advise our patients against harsh ingredients including the use of retinol and glycolic acid.

Treatments can take 10 minutes in-centre and are non-invasive.

What is a broken capillary?

Broken capillaries are tiny dilated blood vessels that are visible through the skin. These can be caused by a range of factors, including ageing, excessive drinking or smoking, sun damage and changes in temperature. Once they have formed, they will not disappear without specific treatment.

Is laser vein removal painful?

Skin blemish removal is generally gentle and effective. Laser treatments give only minimal discomfort and are performed by our experienced team in a safe medical practice.

How long does laser vein removal take and how often do I need treatment?

Depending on the type of veins, you may require more than one session to achieve the outcome you desire. Our laser treatments are spaced four to six weeks apart. This will allow the targeted vessels to be reabsorbed into the body during this period.

Treatments can take 10 minutes in-centre and are non-invasive.
