FACIAL VESSELS & LEG VEINS
WHAT IS IT?
Performed using the popular hair removal laser, N.D Yag 1064 nm, by adjusting the size of the distance gauge, we can target superficial vessels on the face & body without absorbing into the skin.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Photo light will absorb into the color of the vessel and stop the blood flow. This treatment is meant for small vessels (.01 - 1.5 mm in thickness). If a client has vessels that are thicker than 1.5 mm, they should see a Cardiovascular doctor for gold standard Sclerotherapy, or if they have varicose veins (large and bulging), they need to see a cardiovascular doctor for radio frequency or laser.
HOW CAN I PREPARE?
Sun exposure should be avoided for 2 weeks prior and post-treatment. Exfoliating products including scrubs, acids, Lotion P50, and retin-A products should be discontinued for 3-7 days prior to and post-treatment. No Vitamin E, fish oils, or over-the-counter blood thinners (aspirin, advil) less than one week before treatment. No prescription blood thinners at all.
