The ELVii532 VP: effective treatment of thread veins and pigmentation.
The Elvii is a laser system that is extremely effective for treating:
Treatment is quick, comfortable and results may be seen immediately. Laser remains the gold standard to selectively and safely treat these common skin complaints, in just 2-3 sessions.
How Elvii laser works
The “green” laser beam is selectively absorbed by the target in or on the skin. This energy is then converted into heat, within the target, 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.
What happens during the treatment?
On the day of your treatment, baseline photographs will be taken, to document your journey and as part of your medical record. Please do not wear make up.
Treatment is carried out in a specially designed “laser room”. You will be asked to sit or lie down. Your skin will be gently cleansed. Your practitioner will then place eye protection for you and the treatment will commence.
It is not at all painful, but you will notice the warming sensation as the laser works on your skin.
BEFORE & AFTER RESULTS
Vascular Treatments FAQ
Does it hurt?
After treatment you may experience a warm and slightly burning sensation. This can usually be reduced with a cooling post-treatment cream or cool pack.
How long does a treatment take?
What is the treatment frequency?
Treatments are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. This allows time for the previous treatment to work. On average:
- 1-3 treatments are required to remove pigmentation
- 3-5 sessions are required to remove thread veins
However, the number of treatments can vary – your practitioner will advise you.
What should I do before and after the treatment?
It is important to avoid sun exposure and fake tan for several weeks before and after any laser treatment.
Your skin must be protected from sunlight for up to four weeks either side of treatment.
If this is unavoidable you should use a sunscreen, at least factor 50. You cannot be treated if your skin is tanned.
What should I expect after pigmentation treatment?
What should I expect after thread vein treatment?
Are there any side effects or risks?
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.
