What should I expect after treatment?
The veins will darken after treatment, which is normal, and resolves over 2-3 weeks, when an improvement should be seen. Occasionally, when dense areas of veins are treated, there can be some temporary bruising, which resolves in a week or two. Any treated areas may feel warm for an hour or two, an ice pack or 100% Aloe Vera can be applied. We advise clients to avoid very hot conditions, such as saunas/ hot showers/baths for the rest of the day after treatment. It is important to avoid sun/sunbeds on the treatment area before, during, and for 3-4 weeks after treatments have finished, and to use high SPF factor sun cream daily on those areas, if exposed to the sun.
How often do the treatments take place?
Treatments take place at 3- 4 weekly intervals and usually 3-4 treatments are necessary to achieve optimum results. However, treatments are priced individually, so clients can stop when they feel happy with the results.
