LASER FOR REDNESS AND VASCULAR CONCERNS
Laser vascular treatments remove broken capillaries, redness and spider veins, for smooth, clear and blemish-free skin.
Achieve smooth, clear and blemish-free skin
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 treatments are available to remove broken capillaries and the associated redness and spider veins, resulting in smooth, clear, and blemish-free skin.
Laser vascular treatment is ideal for:
Facial spider naevi

Comfortable & safe

Permanent solution for blemish-free skin
Laser vein removal is a permanent treatment for vascular skin conditions and blemishes, with results appearing instantly or after just a few sessions.
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.

Before getting laser, make sure you inform your dermal therapist:
- If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding.
- If you are taking any medications.
- If you have had any problems with similar procedures in the past.
- If you suffer from any type of bleeding disorders or if you are taking substances that prevent blood from clotting.
- If you have kidney, liver, or heart problems, breathing difficulties, or eye disorders.
- If you are due to have surgery or have had previous facial surgery.
What you do after your treatment and how you take care of your skin is very important.
- After your laser treatment, avoid direct sun exposure, apply only your prescribed topical skincare, avoid exercise for 24 hours, and ensure your skin remains clean and protected at all times for optimal results. You may choose to wear mineral makeup.
Following pre- and post-treatment care guidelines will help optimise your results. Your dermal therapist will walk you through any contraindications or side-effects that might impact you.

Frequently asked questions
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. The laser will create mild sensations similar to IPL. 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.
What happens after my laser treatment?
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.
How many laser treatments will I need and how often?
Laser for vascular concerns usually produces immediate, permanent results after one single treatment.
