The "green" laser beam is selectively absorbed by the target area in or on the skin. This energy is then converted into heat, within the target area, without injuring other structures.
Within thread veins, this heat causes the vessel wall to shrink and to permanently close. Because the laser beam is so tiny, your veins can be treated accurately and relatively painlessly. This KPT laser is the gold standard laser for treating pigmentation and thread veins.
I had been on the lookout for a new laser device to add to my treatment portfolio. I had previously used many laser devices throughout my career and felt with my experience and expertise in lasers, I could be offering this service to my clients.
The Elvii 532 VP is the No. 1 vascular laser in the Netherlands. One of the biggest reasons why I invested in the Elvii 532 VP (USP) was the spot size. This tiny spot size can allow me to treat the smallest and intricate of vessels that some lasers may find hard to target. I loved the ease of using it, almost like a little pen. The other great benefit of this laser is that when targetting the vein or pigment it is so precise "only treating what needs to be treated", therefore clients find this laser far more comfortable. Visible results can been seen immediately. For these reasons I can treat my clients safely with minimal downtime. I will continue to invest and stay at the forefront of this industry. I am the first to have this amazing device in Essex and I believe you will all love this laser like I do.
Your skin must be protected from sunlight for up to four weeks before and four weeks after treatment. If this is unavoidable you should use a sunscreen, at least factor 50. You cannot be treated if your skin has an active tan or you have used fake tan or gradual tanning products.
Your skin may feel warm during and after treatment. Pigment can initally look darker as the pigment treated pigment comes to the surface of the skin. This may lead to flaking/ or tiny little scabs that heal naturally, over the course of a few days. You can wear make-up the following day and SPF 50 is advised.
Don't have a SPF 50? You might like pHformula's U.V Protect.
No, this treatment does not hurt.
Some heat can be felt during treatment, but this disappears immediately. After treatment you may experience a warm and slightly burning sensation.
How long a treatment takes depends on the number of treatment areas and their location. Please find further details about treatment times within my price list.
It may take several treatments for full clearance of thread veins or pigmentation.
Treatments will be spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
As with any laser treatment, there is a small chance that damage to the skin will occur. This may cause a burn and/or slight colour difference in the skin. However, this discoloration will typically improve over a number of weeks to months.
It would be advised to not do any strenuous exercise after having this treatment to achieve best results. 48 hrs is normally sufficient.
Because of how small the spot size is of the ELvii Laser there is minimum downtime pigmentation will appear darker initially, but veins can look improved from just one treatment.
It may take several weeks for treated veins to disappear completely, but sometimes you will see a visible result after 1 treatment. To treat stubborn vessels or pigmentation it may require a course 1-5 treatments for full clearance.
Ideal for pigmentation, thread veins, rosacea and sun spots.
