Laser Leg Vessel Treatment
At the YOU Clinic we have exclusive use of the Ellipse Nordlys Laser in Chiswick and the surrounding areas until the end of 2018. This is the latest machine to be produced on the market, giving outstanding results using SWT and Nd:Yag laser options.
Nd:Yag for dilated leg vein treatment
Vascular lesions are normal veins that have dilated under the influence of increased pressure. Whereas classical SWT™ / Laser works for certain smaller spider & leg veins including varicose veins, it is generally accepted that Nd:YAG technology is much more effective leg vein laser treatment than IPL for the majority of leg veins.
How does a Nd:YAG laser work?
To clear leg veins, the vessels must be constricted. A 1064 nm wavelength Nd:YAG laser sends energy into the blood and vessel walls, where it is absorbed by the blood. Red blood cells are heated, causing 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.
Leg vessels do not disappear immediately, they can take 6-10 weeks to clot and collapse, depending on your immune healing response. Larger vessels can take 3-4 treatments at 6-8 week intervals to fade and collapse completely.
