Leg and Face Vessels
Clinically proven, safe and effective
Ellipse Nd:YAG offer treatments of leg veins, reticular veins, facial telangiectasia, venous lakes and resistant port wine stains.
To clear leg veins, the vessels must be constricted. The Nd:YAG laser sends energy into the blood and vessel walls, where it is absorbed by blood. Red blood cells are heated, causing met-hemoglobin formation and greater absorption. This causes micro clotting and heating of the vessel wall, leading to complete or partial collapse. The constricted vessel then degenerates, and the visible leg veins disappear from the surface of the skin
I²PL is good for treatment of very superficial small vessels or blanching after sclerotherapy. Note that lasers or light can only be used 1 month post sclerotherapy.
