What is Regenlite Vascular?
The Regenlite Pulsed Dye Laser is a revolutionary non-invasive laser treatment that can successfully treat a variety of vascular and benign cutaneous lesions, such as:
Telangiectasia (broken capillaries)
Cherry and Spider Angioma
Port Wine Stains
Warts & Verrucae
How does Regenlite Vascular work?
A yellow light beam from the Regenlite passes through the top layer of skin (the epidermis) specifically targeting the blood vessels in the dermal layer underneath that form the vascular irregularity. This light causes a heating and damage effect in the vessels and the body's natural healing process is stimulated to repair this damage, thereby reducing the appearance of the condition.
Can anyone have treatment?
Regenlite is suitable for all skin types. However, you will be required to attend a consultation where your medical history will be discussed to determine your suitability for treatment. Should you wish to proceed, you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a patch test.
How does the treatment feel?
The treatment is relatively painless with no need for anaesthesia or invasive needles. Most people merely experience a short warm “flicking” sensation as the laser pulses. More pronounced vascular conditions will often feel more sensation than diffuse redness. It may be that you will feel less sensation on successive treatments as the condition reduces.
How long will my treatment take?
The total time for treatment will depend on the surface area that your condition covers and, therefore treatment can be anything from only a few minutes upwards.
What will I see immediately following treatment?
Immediately after the laser is fired, you are likely to see a red blotchy response appear on the skin. This will develop into a more visible bruise formation shortly after treatment. This bruise is formed by capillary bleeding from the laser impact and is quite a normal reaction to stimulate the healing process. The bruising may darken in 24 hours post treatment but usually begins to fade after the first 48 hours. Some bruises can be visible for 10-14 days after treatment but can be hidden using make-up.
In rare occasions there may be a micro-crust formation over the treated area for several days after treatment.
Visible responses on the lower body, especially the legs and ankles can take longer for fade.
How many treatments will I need?
The results of each treatment session will be reviewed a few weeks post procedure and further treatment performed if necessary. The number of treatments required will vary from person to person and on the condition being treated, and this will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Darker skin types may need more treatments to reach the same result as on a lighter skin. This is due to the nature of the laser interaction with those skin types.
When will I start to see results?
Over a period of three months following treatment you will notice a gradual reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles as the collagen levels increase. Additional treatments may be required periodically to maintain the results, but this depends very much on the individual. We will be happy to advise you further during consultation.
