Elite iQ™ vascular treatments are effective at eliminating spider veins, superficial blood vessels and capillaries, and other vascular lesions that are commonly seen around the nose, cheeks and legs.
Laser treatments are one of the most effective ways to treat small blood vessels. During vascular laser treatments, the laser energy is absorbed by the targeted blood vessels, heating the vessel enough to damage and eliminate it. The body then reabsorbs the vessels over time, restoring the skin’s normal appearance.
Small vessels can often be eliminated after a single treatment while larger, stubborn vessels may require multiple treatments.Treatments are quick and most patients report only mild discomfort. It is common to have some redness and mild swelling at the site and in some cases temporary bruising may result.
As with all laser treatments, it is imperative that you limit your sun exposure in the weeks leading up to your treatments. Contact us today to book your complimentary skin care consultation!
