Vascular lesions can be present from birth, develop with age or as the result of sun damage.
They occur when small capillaries become dilated and can give an appearance of "spider veins" or red spots.
In New Leaf Cosmetic Clinic, we use GentleMax Pro dual wavelength LASER for treating facial teleangiectasia, red nasal veins, small leg veins and haemangiomas.
How many treatments will I need?
A satisfactory result can be seen after only a single treatment, but some people may need 2-3 treatments with maintenance treatments every 6-12 months.
Pre -treatment instructions
