One area of major concern to our clients is nose veins. They find them unsightly as well as drawing unwanted attention to their appearance.

While nose veins can be caused by excessive alcohol usage, there is also a myriad of other factors, including too much sun exposure or a chronic condition called Rosacea or they may be unfortunate enough to inherit a predisposition to thread veins.

The veins are prominently more visible on lighter skin complexions then darker skin types.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment uses a non-laser high-intensity source of light to treat spider veins. It does this by heating and damaging the walls of the blood vessel. This causes them to collapse and disappear. IPL is most effective on small veins close to the surface of the skin.

When IPL is used to treat spider veins, also known as telangiectasia, the light generates heat in the veins. This causes the walls of the vein to collapse, become reabsorbed by the body and fade away.

IPL targets the lower layers of the skin, allowing it to reach deeper layers of the skin without burning the surface of the skin. The IPL device emits pulses of light. When these light pulses strike the skin, some of the light energy is converted to heat.

How much heat is generated and in which parts of the skin depend upon the wavelengths of light included in the pulses. Because IPL uses many wavelengths of light at the same time, it is most effective on veins that are visible at the surface of the skin.

Here at Pulse Light Clinic, we use the latest innovation in Intense Pulse Light Technology, the M22 multiple wavelength IPL machine. It includes light of many different wavelengths. The amount of each wavelength can be varied, which allows the same IPL device to be used to target and treat different vein and skin conditions.

The procedure takes 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the location and number of spider veins to be treated. Clients may experience some slight discomfort, like a warm flicking sensation and some skin types may incur redness around the treated area, which subsides, very quickly with very little downtime.

The majority of our clients will see a satisfactory improvement within one to three treatments. However some clients with more stubborn veins may need more then one session 3 weeks after their first treatment.

People who suffer from air borne allergies such as hay fever, animal fur or those with conditions such as sinusitis as well as those including those working outdoors will find this treatment beneficial to be done on a regular basis.
