Facial Laser Vein Removal
Facial veins can be bothersome and unsightly. Fortunately, a medical laser at The Angel Laser clinic is able to treat the problem effectively, leaving you free to go out again confidently without the need to cover them with make up.
What causes unwanted veins?
Red, blue or purple veins on the face can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, age or genetics.
How does laser vein removal work?
The Nd:YAG laser emits a prescribed dose of energy to the vein. The laser selectively targets the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas.
How many treatments are required?
Typically only two or three treatments are required and the results can be seen in 4-6 weeks. Treatment time usually varies between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area.

What happens after laser vein removal?
You may notice some temporary swelling or bruising which fades, leaving your skin clear.
Does it hurt?
The treatment causes minimal discomfort, sometimes described as a mild stinging. Cold air is blown during the procedure to cool and numb the skin, removing the need for any anaesthetic.
