Spider Naevi

Spider Naevi are small clumps of veins that appear on the skin’s surface, and they are called spider Naevi due to their appearance. A central red papule with tiny feeding capillary legs. They are commonly found on the face, upper body, back of hands and arms. Spider Naevi can be easily treated with our IPL and Nd:Yag laser.

Usually, 1 - 3 treatments are required.

Before Treatment

During Treatment

A layer of cool gel will be applied to your skin, and then the IPL/Laser is pulsed over the spider naevi. The IPL/Laser creates a heat reaction to thermo-coagulate the spider naevi, and this causes the body to re-absorb the blood vessels.

After Treatment

Redness may occur immediately or within 24 hours.

Irritation, a mild itching or warm sensation (like sunburn), may occur immediately or within 48 hours.

The spider nevi can appear darker or grey in colour immediately after the treatment. This is temporary as the skin is healing.

Make-up can be applied several hours after treatment if the skin does not feel sensitive, sore, or irritated and the skin is not broken. Remove make-up carefully with cleanser and pat dry, do not rub your skin as this will irritate it.

Avoid strenuous exercise, steam room, sauna and hot baths for 4-5 days.

Wash and Bath as usual in a lukewarm shower, pat dry skin and apply the recommended home care products.
