IPL hair removal

 

Overview

Many of us suffer from those unsightly purply/red thread veins on our legs, but now Laser/IPL provides a very effective treatment for this problem. It has largely replaced sclerotherapy, where needles are inserted into the veins, and an irritant liquid is injected. This can be painful, slow, and can leave staining of the skin. The Laser/IPL system uses no needles, is fast, and has the added advantage of treating the deeper blue veins often visible on pale skin, up to a diameter of 4 millimetres in size.

 

How it works

The Laser/IPL system that we currently use has two different light technologies, and is called Quantum, by Lumenis. The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is often used to treat more superficial smaller cluster of thread veins, on the legs, face and chest, and the Laser arm is used to treat the larger blue veins. However, both types of treatment are often combined, to achieve the best result. The light produced by both sources is concentrated in the target veins, and converted to heat energy, which coagulates the contents of the veins, which causes the temporary darker appearance. This is then absorbed by the body's natural processes, causing the veins to fade, which takes between 2-3 weeks.
