Leg veins and Facial Capillaries

Leg Veins and Facial Capillaries are usually associated with sun damage, aging and in women often develop during pregnancy or hormonal changes. Leg veins and facial capillaries can be effectively treated using our medical Lasers which specifically target blue, purple and red vessels. Using various wavelengths the lasers are able to target the unsightly vessels causing them to coagulate often disappearing instantly. One to three treatments may be recommended depending on the size, depth or extent of the network of vessels.

The 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser provides the deepest penetration of all the near-infrared wavelengths. Itís a versatile wavelength because smaller diameter vessels such as fine red capillaries can easily be treated as well as the larger, deeper vessels such as leg and ankle vessels can be treated. This laser can be safely used on the darker skin types also.


Medical Intense Pulsed Light is also often used to effectively reduce diffused redness and fine vessels. As our IPL system has a broader range of wavelengths it offers more versatility in treatment and over larger areas.


Our Dermal Clinicians will properly assess your particular condition and advise on the appropriate laser treatment program.







Rosacea is a common chronic skin condition which affects the central regions of the face: nose cheeks and cheeks. It may begin with simple transitory flushing and progress to persistent flushing with visible vessels . The advanced stages are typically chronic inflammation and skin lesions such as pimples may be persistant. If left untreated the condition may progress to overgrowth of tissue of the nose known as Rhinophyma and affect the vessels of the eyes.  There seems to be a genetic predisposition however, various environmental stimuli such as chronic sun exposure, hormonal changes seem to be triggers to its development.


Our clinic offers treatment by specific Laser and Pulsed Light technologies to effectively treat the visible capillaries that have become static as well as deeper wavelengths to non-invasively reduce the skinís tendency to flush. 

Not only does Laser remove the visible vessels but aims to reduce the progression of Rosacea.
