IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a safe and effective way of treating thread veins and redness in the skin. The intense pulsed light system releases precisely controlled short pulses of light that are absorbed by the blood vessel, heating it to a point where it is destroyed. Following treatment the vessels quickly clear and are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original vein. With our particular IPL we are only able to treat facial veins.
How many treatments will I need? : 1-4 treatments are usually required at 4-6 weekly intervals (courses are available)

Downtime: Following the treatment the area may be red and feel warm for a few hours. Occasionally there may be some swelling which should subside quickly.
