The target of the laser vascular treatment is the hemoglobin, which is the colour of the blood. The laser beam catches this colour and dissolves the veins or vessels. We are able to treat leg spider veins, facial veins/capillaries, cherry angiomas and port-wine stains.
This non-invasive laser vascular treatment is a safe, effective treatment for leg veins, unsightly redness and facial veins including; facial telangiectasias (spider veins), Rosacea and birthmarks. Usually recommended in a series of 3 treatments.
