Intense Pulsed Light treats a broad range of vessels, particularly spider veins, broken capillaries (or telangiectasia).Results may be seen after your first treatment but a possible 6 or more may be required depending on the severity. It works by delivering pulses of light energy which causes blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later re – absorbed by your body and blood flow will be redirected. All healing takes place below the skin surface. Although a slight reddening and local swelling of the
skin may appear but this will subside within 24 hours. It is recommended not to take hot baths or showers
or do gym activities for 12 hours after treatment as blood must not be pumped through the vessel. Extreme weather conditions(going from hot to cold temperatures), excessive smoking or drinking or eating hot spicy foods could cause new vesselsto appear overtime.
