Broken Capillaries & Vessels

Safe & effective IPL & laser treatment for broken capillaries & vessels

Laser Capillary Removal

Broken capillaries & vessels are small superficial red, purple or blue veins that can occur on the legs or in fact anywhere on the body.

The causes of leg vessels include genetics, age, lifestyle, hormones, pregnancy and weight gain.  Although they are quite common, they can cause some distress and embarrassment for those who have them.

For leg vessels we will utilise a wavelength called Nd: YAG, this longer wavelength allows the laser energy to penetrate deeper in order to clear the broken vessels. The laser light can destroy the vein without damaging the skin. (See also treatment for telangiectasia or spider veins.)

FAQs

How does the treatment work?

Light energy is applied to the skin where it is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.

Which types of veins can be treated?

Most red skin lesions, including facial thread veins, rosacea, spider naevi, and port wine stains, can be treated very successfully. Depending on the lesions, leg vessels can also respond well to treatment.

How is the treatment carried out?

The light applicator is placed on the skin and
a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. During treatment, protective eyewear will be provided.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Treatment is suitable for most people. Best results are obtained for those with fair skin, and there is less chance of side effects.

How does the treatment feel?

Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but there is no need for anaesthesia and the procedure is actually quite quick. Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot pin prick.

Are there any side effects?

After treatment the area may feel warm for a few hours. Rarely, some delicate skin areas such as the cheeks or décolleté can be red and slightly swollen for up to 48 hours. Though very rare, there is a chance a small blister may form and there could be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.

How long does each treatment take?

Treatments typically take from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the type and size of lesion.

How many treatments are necessary?

Typically 3 to 5 treatments are needed for optimum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single session. Repeat treatments are spaced every 4 to 6 weeks.

What is the consultation procedure?

Prior to treatment you must fi rst undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.

Customer Testimonials

Visited the clinic a while back for some advice and treatment on some pigmentation I was suffering from. They were informative and helpful at all times and helped me towards correcting my problem. The clinic was always immaculate and the staff were friendly and really know what they are doing, would definitely recommend.

Have been to several clinics for laser hair removal and The Lynton is by far the best. Lovely friendly staff who put you at your ease, together with excellent treatment. Highly recommend.

Janet J

This facial is pricey but does actually make a noticeable difference. It has effectively minimised broken blood vessels and pigmentation. Emma was wonderful. So friendly and professional. Highly recommend

Caroline, Congleton

I finished my 3 C02 treatments in March and I am really pleased with the results.  I am in my mid 60s, so wasn’t expecting miracles!  It took another couple of months after the treatments finished before I really noticed an improvement  - the lines on my face have softened considerably and my skin is much brighter and clearer.  So many friends have told me how healthy I look but more importantly I feel much happier and confident. I am very impressed with the Lynton Clinic and Kirsty who did my treatments.

Susan Barrington- Smith

As always you receive an excellent professional service from the lynton staff, they are friendly, very knowledgeable, attentive to your needs and results. I completely have lots of trust in their work with lasers and will always return to them for treatment. Thanks Kirsty

Karen, Sale

I recently visited the clinic for some thread vein removal and I was very happy with the treatment that I received. My vessels already look much better and I found the staff to be very professional and helpful. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone.

Martin Rowe

I highly recommend The Lynton Clinic as the treatments are given by highly skilled and professional staff. I had laser treatment for tattoo removal by Kirsty Turnbull and I also have other treatments at the clinic. After visiting the Clinic on a number of different occasions the experience is always the same. You are made to feel relaxed,everything is fully explained and the treatments are of the highest standard. The staff really care about their clients and want to give you the best experience possible. I am thrilled with the outcome of my tattoo removal and am nearing the end of this treatment. I can't say enough positive things about Kirsty and The Lynton Clinic.

My cellulite had always bothered me. Over time it has got worse to the point where I no longer wanted to wear shorts or skirts. I now feel so much better and I have the confidence now to wear what I want.

I have been going to Lynton Clinic now for a couple of years. I guess something that could be considered quite a daunting experience is actually quite the opposite.... Kirsty is very professional and knowledgable about the various different treatments on offer. I feel as though real advice is given, and appropriate recommendations are made. For me there is no focus on pushing sales or further treatments. On top of the excellent level of professionalism is an air of warmth and friendliness. This starts from the moment you walk through the door, greeted by Emma with a friendly smile and a nice hot cup of coffee! If you are considering laser treatment I cannot recommend Lynton Clinic enough!! Steve B
