Spider veins on legs, facial vascular veins, rosacea, redness and nasal veins are unsightly and are easily treatable. A new generation of lasers has paved the way for safe, non-intrusive treatments, delivering a precision based treatment through a series of brief but measured pulses.
How Does Oo La La Cosmetic Laser Clinic Treat Spider Veins & Varicose Veins?
We offer highly effective laser options through the Quanta Duetto and Ellipse Multiplex platforms. Should you not be suitable for these procedures, we have other modalities of treatment which are equally effective. This includes Veingoh, Pelleve and Sclerotherapy.
Before treatment can commence, our Cosmetic Doctor will review your medical history to determine the severity and longevity of the problem, the cause and the best therapy. If approved, during treatment, you may experience a heating sensation during the pulse series – it shouldn’t be uncomfortable.
Return treatments and results depend on the size and location of your problem veins. Allow for 3 – 5 weeks between sessions and note the appearance of any new veins. Veins disappear within 2 to 6 weeks and there is no downtime to worry about.

What is Yellow Laser?
The yellow light from this laser destroys acne bacteria thereby eradicating active acne, at the same time promoting collagen growth, reducing redness and improving sensitive skin. Improvements are gradual and produce a smoother, clearer and more even-toned surface and and an overall youthful appearance.
Who is this treatment for?
- Acne(mild to moderate acne that has not responded well to topical creams or oral medication)
- Melasma(a type of pigment that is caused partly by sun, genetic predisposition, and hormonal changes)
- Redness prone skin
- Sensitive skin
What happens during the treatment –
The skin is thoroughly cleansed, and laser-protective goggles are placed over the eyes. A yellow laser beam is directed at the face, which destroys the Propionibacterium acne bacteria and shrinks the sebaceous gland to reduce the production of sebum. The yellow light also promotes collagen growth and reduces small red blood vessels (facial capillaries). This has an overall tightening, firming and rejuvenating effect on skin.
What does the treatment feel like?
Most patients compare the feel of the laser to a tingling or prickling sensation like pins and needles. Generally, Yellow Laser is very well tolerated without anaesthesia, even in those with very low pain thresholds. However, on occasion treatments with Doctor Jeffery may include Anaesthetic if needed.
How long does a treatment take?
Treatments with yellow laser will take between 30-60 minutes.
Possible side effects?
Side effects include erythema, swelling, crusting, slight darkening of pigment/capillaries temporarily, feeling of sunburn and mild dryness post treatment.
After your treatment your therapist will give you an aftercare pack and go over post care with you. Please do not pick at skin post treatment as this may lead to hypo pigmentation spots. Also you must wear SPF 30+ as your skin will be sensitive and this will ensure your result lasts! No exercise for 2 days at least post treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Improvements are gradual and become more visible after each treatment. Expect clearer, smoother and healthy-looking skin that is brighter and tighter. For best results, 6 treatments, spaced 3 weeks apart is recommended. Thereafter, maintenance treatments can be done once every 2/3 months or as needed.
