Facial Tread Veins
A large number of men and women all over the world suffer from facial tread veins. These can be of various size, and are almost always caused. or worsen, by sun exposure.
Clinically proven, safe and effective
Facial thread veins develop with age and can cause psychological trauma that patients seek professional help to remove them. Historically they have been covered with make up, while surgery has been limited to the larger vessels on the legs.
How does the Ellipse SWT facial tread veins treatment work?
The Ellipse Selective Waveband Technology treatment works by directing well controlled pulses of light into the upper skin. The light is absorbed by one of the body's own natural substances - haemoglobin – contained in the red blood cells.
Haemoglobin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the walls of the blood vessels, which are permanently damaged and removed by the body's own defence mechanism. The method of converting light to heat and using it to destroy the target without damaging the surrounding tissue is called Selective Photothermolysis.
The visible light produced by the Ellipse SWT systems is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and right amount of energy to destroy the vessel. Best results are obtained on patients who have light to medium skin
