Unsightly red thread veins can be reduced or even removed with Variable Intense Pulse light treatment. 

The Xlase system emits a powerful yellow light beam, which because it is visible light, it is not a harmful when targeting the unwanted vessels.

Laser Vein Removal Treatment Overview

The Xlase system works on the principle of "selective photothermolysis". The Variable intense pulse light lasers are selectively aimed at and absorbed by the targeted red blood cells present in the vessels. The target absorbs the energy and transfers heat to the vessel, which becomes inflamed, slowly collapses and disappears or diminishes over time. There is little risk of harming the overlying skin and/or leaving scar or texture change on the skin.

Laser Vein Removal FAQS

What is a "Spider vein"?

Many myths exist about so-called "spider veins". Many people call dilated blood vessels present on the face or leg "broken blood vessels". In reality, these often unsightly red blood vessels are the result of dilated blood vessels-telangiectasia (from telos = end, angio = vessel, ectasia = stretched).

What are the main types of dilated vessels?

There are two main types of blood vessel patterns:

  • A) Atrue spider vein has a central feeder vessel with radiating fine vessels from a central dot or punctum. This is the classic "spider vein" which is often the result of trauma.
  • B) The second type are vessels that are either disconnected or spread like branches of a tree, so-called arborising vessels, This is caused from heredity (especially white, fair Anglo-Saxons), sun-damaged skin, hormonal changes or changes associated with adult acne and the condition called rosacea.

Where do dilated vessels occur?

Most commonly dilated vessels occur on the face, especially the cheeks and nose, or as clustered vessels of various sizes and patterns on the legs.

Are these dilated vessels dangerous or do the signal other problems?

Usually these dilated vessels are not medically significant and are of cosmetic importance exclusively.

What are the side effects?

The treatment is generally well tolerated. Exposure is limited to an extremely short flash that feels like the snap of a rubber band. A mild burning sensation can be felt for a while afterwards. Occasionally there is some swelling that will subside in a day or two. Bruising is unlikely but if it occurs will settle in a few days. There is a chance that pigment changes may occur in the skin, either dark marks, hyperpigmentation, or pale marks, hypopigmentation. These are temporary and fade in 1 - 6 months.

To help reduce the risk of this it is very important that sun exposure is avoided for 4 weeks before your treatment and throughout the course of treatment. Crusting and blistering may occur after the treatment, this is best left to heal undisturbed so as to reduce the risk of scarring. It is important that you follow any aftercare instructions carefully.
