Laser Treatment for Veins & Vascular Conditions

Target unwanted capillaries, spider veins, superficial leg veins & more

Laser for Veins

Vascular lasers selectively target unwanted or abnormal blood vessels in the skin, treating broken blood vessels and reducing redness to give you a clearer complexion. At the Cosmetic Studio Noosa we use the latest technology of the Candela Gentle Max Pro NdYAG laser to deliver superior results for vascular conditions. The powerful NdYAG laser selectively penetrates superficial blood vessels generating heat to coagulate the blood inside which causes the vessel to collapse and seal. Over the following 4-6 weeks, the vessels will disappear and the blood will be removed by the body. Using the Gentle Max Pro we are able to deliver the precise dosage of energy to each blood vessel without injuring the surrounding areas. Vascular laser is very effective and is a walk in walk out treatment with minimal downtime.

  • Broken capillaries or Telangiectasis
  • Rosacea
  • Red stretch marks
  • Superficial leg veins

Our laser practitioners will perform an initial constellation to assess your suitability for laser treatment. You may be able to have treatment on the same day however in some cases you may need to wait a week or two to prepare your skin before treatment. During treatment you will be reclined or lying down and you will wear protective eye shields. Your practitioner will set laser parameters according to your specific skin type and the skin condition being treated and will talk you through the process. The heat from the laser pulses may be slightly uncomfortable during and immediately following treatment however discomfort is significantly reduces using our specialised cooling device.
You should avoid skin irritation or intentional tanning. Avoiding the sun for 4-6 weeks before treatment is recommended. Tanning creams and spray tans should also be avoided. Treatment of tanned skin may cause blistering or possible pigmentation changes so we cannot treat you while you have a tan. Vitamin A creams and serums should be discontinued 1 week before treatment. If you are on any medications please inform your practitioner – non-especial blood thinners may be stopped 1-2 weeks before treatment to minimise risk of bruising.

Vascular laser treatment can take anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour depending on how many vessels and areas are being treated. Depending on the size and number of veins, 2-6 treatments will be needed. The treatments are usually performed between 2-6 weeks apart depending on vessels being treated. Those with a tendency towards vascular problems will most likely require additional treatments.

Straight after treatment you will feel warmth in the skin and the skin may be red for a few hours. In some cases redness may persist for 24-48 hours. Soon after the procedure, you may feel a slight bump on the skin; it should disappear within hours after treatment. Leg veins or larger vessels may appear bruised or darker red following treatment and this discolouration will fade over the next few weeks.
After laser therapy, it is strongly recommended that you avoid the sun completely to reduce hyperpigmentation. You must wear sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30+ we recommend Medik8 and Alpha H sunscreens, which are available in clinic. If you are experiencing discomfort ice may be applied. Avoid strenuous exercise or excessive hot showers for 48 hours after treatment. Your practitioner may recommend longer depending on the vessels being treated. If leg veins have been treated healing and discomfort can be facilitated by wearing compression stockings and elevating your legs. If you are being treated for general redness or rosacea we highly recommend Medik8 anti redness ‘calmwise’ range of products for ongoing skin maintenance.
Side effects of vascular laser are usually mild and generally fully resolve however in rare cases there can be more serious complications. There is a possibility of short-term side effects such as redness, mild burning, temporary bruising, swelling and temporary discolouration of the skin. In very rare cases there may be blistering, scarring and permanent discolouration. Changes in pigmentation (lightening and darkening) are more common in olive or darker complexions or those who are tanned. Risks can be minimised by following appropriate before and after care and using cooling devices during treatment.
This is a really good question and one we get asked all the time about all kinds of cosmetic treatments. It’s fair to say that nothing is permanent in cosmetic medicine because our face and body age regardless of what treatments we have to improve or enhance our appearance. Keeping ourselves looking youthful can be a constant job, we women call it Maintenance! Getting rid of veins, whether big or tiny, or on your face or legs, is a bit like using permanent hair colour to cover up your grey hairs – you may have died one lot of grey hairs permanently but new ones keep popping up – damn it! When we laser veins we actually trace them with the intense but perfectly directed thermal light from the laser point beam, this causes the blockage of blood that has filled the burst looking vein to be liquified. The amazing thing about our Gentle Max Laser is its ability to not damage any surrounding skin in the process – that’s super smart and super safe technology for you! Once the laser has cauterised that section of the burst vein wall and the dead blood cells within in it, our body sends in clean up cells, called macrophages to break down the debris and take it away! Yay for Macrophages! This cleaning up process can take a few weeks to complete, and sometimes we need a second or third treatment over that same site to thoroughly eliminate that section of burst plumbing, so to speak. Once that section of busted vein or capillary are destroyed that’s it – they’re gone! But, like the ‘grey hair’ scenario, sometimes other veins and capillaries fill as our vein walls age or are constantly put under more pressure, from standing or having babies or genetics for example, they become more fragile they can burst in other places. So, although lasering the problem veins is permanent, maintenance for some people can mean a yearly appointment to clean up new ones that may appear. It’s good to note that not everyone needs repeat treatments, especially with Mr Accurate – Gentle Max!
