Frequently Asked Questions
The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and laser devices emit powerful wavelengths of light that target red pigmentation in the vascular lesions. Heat energy then destroys the pigment without affecting the skin or tissue surrounding the targeted area.
IPL and lasers work at different wavelengths of light, so we typically combine both technologies to more effectively target the vascular concern.
Number of treatments will vary depending on the specific vascular concern being treated. Other factors including your general health will affect how many treatments are required.
Generally, a course of 4 – 6 treatments at 4 weekly intervals is required to achieve an optimal result.
It is important to have realistic expectations of possible results with vein treatments. Due to the nature of vascular lesions, it is usually not possible completely clear the concern with the use of laser or IPL. A significant improvement is often seen but no guarantee of outcome can be made.
