Spider Veins and Rosacea

Dr Melanie is able to treat small veins on the face as well as larger spider veins on the legs.

The treatment will require at least 3 sessions usually 6 weeks apart. A noticeable change will occur after one session but it requires all 3 to reach a satisfactory result.


Rosacea, or acne rosacea, is a non-contagious skin inflammation that exclusively affects the face. The small surface blood vessels (capillaries) of the skin enlarge, giving the appearance of a permanent flush. The forehead, cheeks and chin may develop yellow-headed pimples. Unlike acne, rosacea does not scar.

The condition first appears between the ages of 30 and 50 years. Frequent flushing or blushing is commonly the first sign. Over time, permanent redness (erythema) may develop as the capillaries enlarge and pustules begin to form. In men, severe rosacea can cause the nose to become reddened and enlarged (rhinophyma).

The symptoms tend to worsen with advancing age. The cause is unknown and there is no permanent cure.

Treatment for rosacea is possible with the Fotona SP Dynamis. It usually requires 3 treatments in total 4-6 weeks apart. Active pimples and redness can both be treated.
