Capillary Removal

Broken capillaries on the face can be successfully treated using IPL technology. We cannot treat tanned skin or those with very olive / dark skins for capillary removal. We cannot treat leg capillaries with IPL.








How is the treatment done?

Light is passed through the skin and absorbed by the red colour (haemoglobin) in the capillary, producing heat. The heat then causes the blood in the capillary to become sticky (coagulate) and block the vessel. This makes the vessel useless to the body. The body will then break down the vessel. It takes approx 2 weeks for this process. Sometimes the body will  repair the vessel.

The advantage of IPL technology is that we don’t have to treat each vessel individually, but can treat sections of the skin. Capillary removal is uncomfortable, but with IPL can be done in a short period of time. No scabbing appears on the face as with older treatments, as IPL does not have to break the skin to reach the vessel.

Rosacea
Rosacea is a condition of the skin. It presents as a generalised redness and can become angry and inflamed. Sometimes it is called acne rosacea as it can appear to have pimple like eruptions. If left untreated it can form lumps on the skin. In some people it will be constant in others it will come and go. Unfortunately it cannot be cured but can be controlled using a combination of skincare, IPL and antibiotics. 3 to 6 treatments of IPL can dramatically reduce rosacea on the face. Ask your Jeune consultant for an information sheet for treatment of this condition.

How will I look afterwards?
The number of treatments depends upon the severity and type of condition, they can vary from 2 - 6. Your consultant will advise you during your assessment. Larger vessels are generally easier to treat than small vessels.

Can I wear make up?
You can wear make up after IPL. We recommend mineral make up as it won’t "clog" your pores and has an anti- inflammatory effect.

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments depends upon the severity and type of condition, they can vary from 2 - 6. Your consultant will advise you during your assessment.
