Vascular therapy

For broken or enlarged facial capillaries

Get the complexion you want

Also known as telangiectasia, enlarged or broken facial capillaries can be a source of distress. Fortunately, the condition can be treated with laser therapy.

We've successfully reduced the appearance of broken capillaries in our clients with one of two lasers — GentleMax Pro and Vbeam Prima.

How this condition occurs

The tiny blood vessels in the affected area become enlarged, causing threadlike red lines or patterns to appear. These abnormalities form gradually, and often occur in clusters. Telangiectases are most commonly found in areas like the lips, nose, eyes, fingers, and cheeks.

The condition itself is usually harmless, though it causes the sufferer cosmetic distress. In rare cases, however, it can be the sign of a serious illness like Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT). This is why we always perform an initial consultation, and gather information on your medical history before beginning any treatment plans.

When to seek vascular therapy

If the appearance of broken capillaries causes you discomfort, or makes you feel self-conscious about the way you look, you should seek treatment. Some of our clients prefer to remove broken facial capillaries to achieve an even-toned complexion, and brighter skin.

How our lasers work

GentleMax Pro

The GentleMax Pro uses dual-wavelength lasers, delivering a high-energy pulse targeted towards a specific area of the skin. Your skin absorbs the light energy, which is then converted to heat.

Any potential discomfort is instantly reduced by the Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD), which sprays the upper layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen before and after each laser pulse.

Vbeam Prima

The Vbeam Prima uses a pulsed-dye laser (PDL) to deliver an intense (but gentle) burst of light into the targeted area of your skin. Your skin cells then absorb the light.

Most clients notice immediate results. The skin may be red or mildly swollen immediately following the procedure, but this usually goes away within a few hours.

How to prepare for vascular therapy

For about one month prior to treatment, minimise sun exposure and avoid fake tanning. One week prior to treatment, don't take aspirin or any blood thinners.

If you are concerned about feeling too much discomfort, we can test a patch of your skin during your first consultation to check your skin's sensitivity.

How to take care of your skin post-treatment

Immediately after you receive treatment, your skin may appear red and a little swollen. This is a normal side effect of the treatment. Apply a cool compress or cold pack to reduce swelling and bruising.

You'll need to avoid exercise, hot showers, and chlorinated or salt water swimming pools for 48 hours after you receive your treatment.

Is there any reason I shouldn't receive vascular laser therapy?

The Vbeam Prima is not recommended for patients who have dark pigmentation. Using the laser may result in discolouration, and will be less effective.

You also can't receive either of our laser therapies if you've recently fake tanned, or achieved a natural tan that's quite dark.

Will I need more than one treatment?

It depends on how significant your broken capillaries are. You'll see immediate effects after your first session, but for maximum results, we'd recommend scheduling a minimum of two-three. This will be determined during your initial consultation.

Is vascular laser therapy painful?

Our clients say that laser therapy feels like a rubber band snapping on the skin. Any other sensations of burning you might otherwise feel are dissipated by the DCD built in both of the vascular therapy lasers.

Will there be side effects of laser therapy?

In rare cases (less than 1 per cent) scarring can occur. More common side effects are redness around the treated area, mild swelling, and slight bruising.
