These are places where small broken veins appear on the surface of the skin During a VPL laser treatment, light energy is absorbed by the tiny blood vessels that form these imperfections. The absorption process heats and breaks down the vessels. Effective VPL laser treatments enable the body to recognize these broken vessels as waste and to clean them up in a natural way.
As we age, depending on the pigment that determines our hair and skin colour, pigmentation spots, age spots and other imperfections may develop. This can be particularly bothersome on the face, décolleté and hands.
With a VPL laser treatment, the excess melanin (pigmentation) is removed by small amounts of light energy (rapid heat), which are then naturally removed by the body. The surrounding skin stays cool during the treatment.
The result is that pigmentation is reduced and the skin’s tone and structure become more beautiful.
As we age, our collagen production steadily declines, giving rise to ever more fine lines and wrinkles.
The carefully filtered light from the VPL laser stimulates fibroblasts (cells) in the body to produce more collagen. This new collagen moves to the surface of the skin, resulting in a beautiful smooth skin, with small pores and fewer wrinkles and fine lines.
Acne is caused when pores become blocked by dead skin cells and an overproduction of sebum. Once pores are blocked, bacteria can build up and cause an infection.
A VPL laser treatment improves active acne (acne vulgaris) by destroying the bacteria that cause the infection by producing an oxygen-rich environment.
VPL ™ light reduces the inflammation associated with acne. Since this treatment stimulates further collagen production, the tone and the structure of the skin are considerably improved.
These blood vessels can be hypersensitive to certain triggers.
VPL laser treatment can help minimize the symptoms of rosacea, thereby reducing redness and inflammation. The light energy is absorbed by the inflamed blood vessels, and the associated heating helps to break them down. The body then recognizes these broken vessels as waste and naturally removes them.
