Dentality @ Hoddesdon - Facial Thread Veins

The treatment we offer is a clinically proven and effective treatment of vascular lesions. These lesions are the result of numerous small or large vessels that form directly underneath your skin and can be found all over the body.

A large number of men and women all suffer from vascular lesions (disorders of the blood vessels). These can be of various types, from small telangiectasia (sometimes called spider veins or broken veins) to large Port Wine Stains. Some lesions are present from birth, while others develop with age, or as the result of environmental damage. The most commonly treated vascular lesions are thread veins. These thin vessels (called telangiectasia) around your nose or on your cheeks are small blood vessels near the surface of the skin, often formed as a result of sun-exposure. They sometimes occur in a more general area of redness.

The treatment we offer is a quick and simple treatment that does not interfere with your normal daily routine. It can help eradicate and or reduce the visibility of these lesions allowing the skin tone to look more even and more youthful.

How does the Vascular Lesion treatment work?

A thin layer of gel (similar to ultrasound gel) is applied to your skin before treatment to make the treatment more effective and more comfortable. A hand held applicator is held against the skin and a controlled pulse of light is delivered.

The treatment works by a technique is called Selective Photothermolysis. This consists of directing controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by one of the body's own natural substances – haemoglobin, contained in the red blood cells. Haemoglobin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the walls of the blood vessels, which are permanently damaged and removed by the body's own defence mechanism.

Several vessels can be treated at once and a single session typically lasts up to 30minutes. You should see an improvement after the first treatment but up to 3 treatments may be required to achieve the full desired effect.
