These conditions that can make the skin look blotchy and uneven can be successfully treated by laser. Laser pulses are absorbed in the unwanted vessels, heating and destroying them. Spot treatment may take only a few minutes, longer for full face redness. Although there is no virtual down-time, pink or red coloration is temporary after treatment and can be camouflaged with make-up until it resolves. Treatment of spider veins can sometimes require more than one treatment and facial flushing will require a series of approximately three treatments spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart.
