What causes Facial Red Veins?
Facial Red Veins, or 'broken veins', are fine visible veins appearing near the surface of the skin. They tend to become larger and more intensive over time, appearing in clusters. Exposure to the sun's ultra violet rays, wind or extreme temperatures, steroid creams, hormonal changes during pregnancy and radiotherapy have all been recognised as causes of red veins. Facial Red Veins can also be associated with Rosacea, a common condition of an unknown cause, affecting the facial skin.
How does treatment work?
Skin treatment with various lasers, particularly the KTP/YAG laser system, works effectively on these conditions by matching the laser light to the colour of the lesion, eliminating the vessels by heat. Through a technical process called photothermolysis, the laser only interacts with the unwanted red vein - completely bypassing normal, vein free skin. As each laser pulse is extremely brief there is no build up of heat on the skin, minimising interference with the skin structure with virtually no risk of side effects. Some types of laser skin treatment can cause temporary bruising and swelling but there is usually no need for interference with your daily routine.
Is it safe?
Yes. Our state-of-the-art lasers are operated by fully qualified Doctors and Laser Nurses and are regularly checked to the very highest standards by our own in-house team of laser engineers. As all sk:n clinics are registered and regularly inspected by the Healthcare Commission, we adhere to the highest standards of health and safety, carrying out audits on a regular basis.
