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.

Like all the practitioner at the Lynton Clinic, Kirsty made me feel relaxed and confident in her knowledge and experience. Although there are many other treatment centres near my home in Stockport for Facial Thread Vein removal, I would dream of going anywhere other than Lynton for treatment.

Joe, Stockport

I have had a course of laser hair removal on my back at The Lynton Clinic, having suffered with in-growing hairs now for years I wish I had found this treatment earlier. I no longer have to suffer with this problem and I also have hardly any hair left that I have to deal with. I found them to be very professional and would highly recommend this clinic and treatment to anyone

Andrew Godwin

Being of mature years I have always tried to find ways of improving the quality and look of my skin, finding The Lynton Clinic and discussing with very professional and honest staff what results I was looking for I decided to go for Fractional Laser and Skin Tightening treatments. I have found that my skin has tightened and has a lovely natural glow. My friends are all complimenting (even the fellows) on how I am looking. It makes me happy and bouncy with a feeling of well-being. Now I do not mind having my picture taken before I used to hate it. Thank you all at Lynton!  

Wendy Barlow

Something I really appreciate when visiting a clinic is great customer service - Emma was extremely professional and welcoming, I felt well looked after from start to end and I had a memorable and pleasurable experience that I am more than happy to share. Highly recommend Lynton clinic for their in depth knowledge and high tech treatments, to help you feel as good as possible about yourself!

Great treatment by Kirsty who is excellent at her job. Always welcoming, gives good advice and makes me feel extremely confident and comfortable in her care.
