LASER

VASCULAR TREATMENT

Lasers and IPL are highly effective at reducing redness, flushing, visible capillaries and star burst blood vessels

Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments are non invasive and painfree, with full-face treatments taking only 20-30 minutes. Our clients at Armstrong Health will be given a consultation where our specialist will give them a treatment course to suit their individual needs. Clients simply lie on a
comfortable bed while the light is applied to the affected area. Once the treatment session is over, clients can return to their daily routine. This means no downtime or inconvenience.
IPL Photo Rejuvenation effectively clears most active inflammatory vascular lesions and capillary vessels in 4-6 visits. Most clients of Armstrong Health Clinic report 60-70% reduction of
the redness and flushing appearance of the skin. This process also results in activation of cells in the skin called fibroblasts to stimulate collagen
remodelling as well as produce new collagen. This helps to rejuvenate the skin, improving its texture whilst reducing and preventing fine lines.

What happens during an IPL / laser treatment?

  • Your doctor or cosmetic nurse will review your medial history, discuss your concerns, photograph the area to be treated and decide on the best treatment plan for you. Antibiotic gel or tablets may be prescribed to complement and augment the results of your laser treatment.
  • You may view before and after photos of other patients’ outcomes to give you a realistic expectation of your own result. As well you can view photos of how you might look during your recovery.
  • Protective eye shields are worn throughout your treatment.
  • Treatment is non-invasive and feels like a series of quick stings, similar to a rubber band flicking on your skin.
  • A sensation of heat that may persist for a few minutes after treatment. You will be provided with an ice pack that will calm the area almost immediately.

What should I expect after IPL / laser treatment?
Your treated skin will be flushed, similar to that produced by a vigorous workout, but will typically return to normal within a few hours. You may experience swelling under the eyes if the upper cheeks have been treated and bruising can sometimes occur. Makeup may be worn immediately.

Final results may take up to a month to become apparent. For Rosacea, once removed, capillaries usually do not recur though new vessels can occur spontaneously as part of your ongoing Rosacea.

Is treatment painful?
Treatments are quick, typically taking not more than a few minutes. Whilst you will experience a definite sensation, local anaesthesia is rarely needed. 

What are the side effects of IPL/ laser treatment?
You may experience redness, swelling or bruising for a few minutes, hours or days, depending on the intensity of your treatment.

Contraindications to treatment:

  • Pregnancy. Though no specific complications are anticipated, we prefer not to treat pregnant women.
  • Active cold sores or other infections in the areas to be treated
  • Moles or suspicious lesions should be reviewed by a medical practitioner.
  • Use of Roaccutane (oral acne medication) in the last 12 months.
  • Recent tanning, either natural or artificial, interferes with the absorption of light into pigment. Treatment should be delayed until your tan has faded.

Precautions
Keloid scarring, connective tissue disease, immunosuppression or autoimmune disorders, vitiligo or uncontrolled diabetes may be contraindications for this treatment. Your suitability for treatment will be assessed at your initial consultation.
