Q& A: How long does laser IPL thread vein removal treatment take?
Lasers can be used to treat Thread Veins on the face, body and legs, and this would usually require a course of around 3-4 treatments.
Intense Pulsed Light or IPL is directed at the problem area and can treat both large and small thread veins. The intense laser pulses cause the vessel walls of the vein to collapse and be absorbed by the body. This is a completely non-invasive treatment and will leave the treated area smooth and completely free of marks and blemishes.
An alternative to IPL is microwave technology, which has a similar effect on the vein’s structure and consequent obliteration. Laser treatment is so effective that potential patients can have the procedure on your face in your lunch hour and return to work afterwards.
The IPL and Laser treatments are completely safe, and a painless with many patients even combining it with other skin rejuvenation procedures as part of a facial. Visit our leg vein treatment pages for further information.
