Skin and Aesthetics

Spider Veins, thread veins, naevi, seborrheic keratosis, pyogenic granuloma, rosacea, acne vulgaris

The Fotona Nd:Yag 1064nm laser is extremely successful in treating thread veins easily and quickly. Immediate improvement is often?seen.

Strict protocols are followed prior to laser treatments and a full consultation and test patch are always undertaken.

Laser treatments for thread veins etc is a different application to that of verruca/wart treatment and no anaesthetic is needed for thread vein removal. Some patients report a feeling of a rubber band being snapped against their skin and this mild discomfort is well tolerated and we use a Zimmer chiller cooler system to aid comfort during treatment.

Rosacea treatments are not painful and our chiller is more than enough to ensure a comfortable experience. Some post laser redness is to be expected and patients are advised to avoid any vigorous exercise, sunlight, facials, hot baths or showers, saunas, hot tubs etc for at least three days. You can certainly bath and shower but not hot as it may open up the tiny vessels we have just sealed. Post laser creams are used and a full care and advice sheet is given following treatment. It is often advised that two to three laser treatments are scheduled 6 weeks apart for optimum results.

Seb K removal is always undertaken using a local anaesthetic.
