New generation Nd:YAG Laser Vein Therapy for the Face & Body

Men and women are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past, thanks to the new generation Nd: YAG Laser. No more painful injections! With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the new generation Nd: YAG Laser can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial facial veins and deeper blue leg veins quickly, safely, and effectively on men and women of all skin tones.

How does new generation Nd: YAG Laser Therapy work?

The new generation Nd: YAG Laser systems deliver pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin's surface, where it should be.

How many treatments will I need?

Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, colour, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, this issue will be discussed at your free no obligation consultation.

Do the treatments hurt?

Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand piece. Although no local anaesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical aesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

What are the possible side effects?

Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur.

When will I see results?

Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment on facial veins and four to 8 weeks on body veins. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months.
