Visible vessels/broken capillaries (telangiectasia) over the cheeks, nose and chin are a common concern.
These blood vessels can be red or dusky in colour and are often accompanied by generalised background redness and flushing and blushing.
Vascular laser is the treatment of choice. Our vascular laser system (Cutera Excel V) utilises two wavelengths (532nm and 1064nm) allowing vessels at different skin depths to be treated and in all skin types.
In addition, the dedicated Laser Genesis™️ handpiece is a great device for reducing generalised redness, flushing and blushing, especially when used with prescription skin care consistently to achieve and maintain the best results.
Results for treatment of visible vessels are often seen immediately. Sometimes the treated vessels will darken before fading away, whilst others will disappear at the time of treatment.
How are we unique
The term ‘laser’ is an umbrella term to describe a wide variety of devices, technologies and parameters. Whilst the ‘laser’ machine being used is important, of even more importance is the operator, much like a skillful driver is needed to harness the power of a racing car. How the device is used, what parameters are chosen and the long-term treatment plan prescribed, will determine the safety and efficiency of the treatment both in the short and longer term. As such, we encourage you to make an appointment for an initial consultation so we can examine your skin to determine if laser treatment is the right treatment for you.
