Spider veins and other vascular lesions commonly known as broken capillaries are another sign of photo-aged skin. As the skin ages, it becomes thinner and less “elastic”.
In this case, the light from the IPL vascular treatment targets the haemoglobin in the capillaries. The dilated blood vessel absorbs the light and the heat that is generated at the site constricts them so they are no longer viable. They become naturally absorbed and removed by the body’s lymphatic system. Redness and flushing becomes visibly reduced.
As an added bonus, the overall appearance of the skin is improved as the thermal nature of the IPL laser treatment for broken capillaries also stimulates fibroblasts. This in turn stimulate the body’s own response of collagen production, therefore improving wrinkles as well.
The number of sessions required depends on the individual, ranging from 1-6 sessions. For best results, it is advised to have repeat treatments at 7–10 day intervals so the vein does not re-establish itself.
