HOw laser works
Laser light penetrates the skin, raising the temperature of the blood vessel (vein) and safely coagulating it instantly. Treated veins gradually shrink and become less visible or disappear completely. Laser allows for individual customised treatment of veins that do not respond to other treatment methods.
The types of veins that can be treated
A variety of leg and facial veins, ranging from the most superficial to deeper blood vessels respond well to Laser treatments. Candidates include ‘Spider Veins’, very small veins caused by dilation of the minute vessels that sit near the skin’s surface, and ‘Reticular Veins’, the small, bluish colour veins that carry blood to the skin’s tiny vessels.
The Laser causes no actual damage to the overlaying skin. However, temporary bruising and darkening of the skin may result, and will disappear in several days or weeks. Fading is generally excellent, taking four weeks to several months to see final results.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Firstly an initial free consultation is scheduled to assess your individual needs and explain the Laser procedure. Treatments may vary from 10 – 20 – 30 minutes. A single, or several treatments may be required and will be determined by the number and size of veins and your body’s ability to heal.
During your consultation, you will receive an estimate of the cost and number of treatments typically required to achieve optimal vascular results. You will be advised to limit sun exposure pre and post treatment and use sunscreen when required. Laser treatments cause NO downtime, and could be conveniently scheduled during your lunch hour or work break.
DOES IT HURT?
While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people describe vascular Laser treatment as a momentary light sting which passes immediately.
IS IT SAFE?
Laser parameters are specifically set to match your skin type, assuring exact and gentle vascular treatments. The advantage of Laser is all skin colours can be treated safely.
Rosacea, Acne Rosacea, Red Skin
Rosacea, commonly called Acne Rosacea or Vascular Rosacea is a common non-contagious skin inflammation affecting the small surface blood vessels of the face. The small surface blood vessels enlarge giving the appearance of a permanent flush. The cause is unknown, but today Rosacea can be treated and managed successfully (90-99% reduction) with AFT Green Light.
How does AFT Green Light work?
AFT Green Light is applied in a series of gentle pulses to the treatment area. Without damaging the skin the light penetrates the subsurface skin layers where it is absorbed by the blood vessels. The heat impairs the vessels and the body begins its natural healing process. The AFT treatment immediately calms the inflammation of the skin, reducing the redness and swelling without changing the surrounding epidermis. Treatments may be scheduled during your lunch hour. Hence ‘No Downtime’!
How many treatments are necessary?
AFT quickly and safely helps clear the superficial blood vessels while stimulating production and lay down of collagen resulting in skin tightening and pore refinement. Treatment generally involves 5 or more sessions. While most patients see significant improvement in the firstsession. To maintain optimal results quarterly maintenance treatments are recommended.
