There are many different types of vascular lesions including thread veins, spider naevi, rosacea and angiomas. Many of these can be either completely removed or significantly improved using the Fotona laser with dramatic results.

Vascular lesions can be present from birth or develop with age.

They occur when the small capillaries in your skin become dilated and can give the appearance of red spots, or sometimes larger lesions. They can also spread out like thread veins or spider veins.

How it works:

The Fotona laser works by immediately shrinking the capillaries to provide instant cosmetic results.

This happens because the energy from the laser is readily absorbed by blood in the vein which destroys the vein wall and shrinks the vessel.

Your body then naturally clears away the tissue just as it does with any bruise so it clears.

Expected Results:

Smaller lesions will often disappear immediately. Some will leave a brown/grey colour over the vein for a few days which will then fade and disappear.

Occasionally there can be some redness and bruising at the treated site, this resolves very quickly, but does vary from person to person often depending on how easily you bruise in general.



Thread veins had been an ongoing problem for me for years. In the past, I had treatment by injection (sclerotherapy), this was an uncomfortable treatment with slow results. I visited Dr Phillips on a friend’s recommendation. 

After just one visit the results were amazing! 

The procedure was completely painless, and the results were immediate. Apart from a little redness, there was no evidence of the thread veins, or the treatment I had received. 

I can not recommend this laser treatment enough. Dr Phillips is extremely professional and knowledgeable, from start to finish I felt in safe hands.
