Vascular Laser using LP YAG and/or IPL

Vascular Laser using LP YAG and/or IPL is a treatment designed to address small spider veins, angiomas, and vascular birthmarks. This method uses focused laser energy and intense pulsed light to target blood vessels beneath the skin, helping reduce their visibility. The treatment can be performed on various areas, including the face, neck, chest, arms, and legs. During a session, blood vessels absorb laser energy and collapse, eventually disappearing. The surrounding skin is left unaffected, resulting in a more even and clear complexion.

This treatment is ideal for individuals who are self-conscious about visible vascular conditions. Results typically start to appear within a few days, and the effects can last for several months to a year, depending on individual care and lifestyle factors. In some cases, more than one session may be recommended to meet your specific needs for the best results. Book a consultation with Dr Amber Bocknek to achieve healthier-looking skin.
