An incredibly fine and precise laser beam, Norseld laser produces two wavelengths of light (green and yellow) both working to remove thread veins, reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, pigment, melasma and for general facial rejuvenation. The laser is absorbed by the skin, where the light energy is converted to heat energy and selectively targets without damaging the surrounding area. Yellow light is absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood vessel to remove veins and green light is absorbed by melanin to aid the removal of pigmentation and sunspots.
A small area of thread veins can take just a few minutes to treat, whereas larger areas take up to 35 minutes. Easily tolerated, expect the laser to feel like gentle pricks with a small hot needle, however if larger veins or a sensitive part of the body is being treated then a local aesthetic cream may be applied to the skin beforehand. Treated skin will go slightly red and blotchy 10 minutes after treatment and this will subside within hours to 10 days. The treated veins will fade 4 to 6 weeks after treatment. Depending on its target 1-6 treatments may be necessary 2-4 weeks apart.
This particular laser can also tackle the effects of acne, rosacea, pigmentation and scarring. As it’s so gentle and precise it can also be used around the delicate eye area to improve fine lines, puffiness and dark circles while also stimulating collagen production to restore a youthful glow. In addition, almost all skin types can use this type of non-ablative laser and can be combined with a number of other treatments.
