ND Yag Vein Removal
The ND Yag Q switched laser emits a prescribed dose of energy to the thread or spider vein. The laser selectively targets the veins, safely passing through the surrounding tissue, this causes the vein to heat up and cause coagulation, which the body then naturally breaks down and absorbs back into your bloodstream.Intense pulsed light or IPL is a method of skin treatment and rejuvenation which uses light-based energy to improve the appearance of the skin.
ND Yag is effective in removing red thread veins anywhere on the face and body.
Following skin cleansing, a cool conducting gel is applied to the area to be treated.
The hand piece delivers precise pulses of light to the targeted area. When the hand piece is passed over your skin, you will feel warmth. Some patients liken the experience to that of an elastic band ‘snap’.
Immediately after treatment the skin is cooled as it can feel quite warm.
Any pigmented age spots tend to darken and fall off.
The area will cool down very quickly after the treatment. The treatment itself is fast and can even be done on your lunch break. After treatment a sunscreen is applied and you can return to your normal daily activities.
