Vascular Removal Treatment

Vascular Removal is a fast and gentle treatment solution for removing rosacea and visible blood vessels on the face. A concentrated beam of light energy is directed at the vein. The light penetrates below the skin surface and the heat from the laser causes the blood in the tiny vessels to coagulate. The walls of the vein then collapse, causing blood flow to stop and over the next few weeks the vein is absorbed by the body and disappears. This is a Fantastic non-invasive treatment for eliminating broken capillaries.

This treatment is suitable for both men and women of various ages and skin types.

This treatment should cause little-no discomfort. Most guests describe the sensation as a hot pin prick.

A complimentary consultation is required prior to any first time bookings for Laser and any Medical Spa Treatments. All prices will be discussed and quoted at the time of the consultation.
