What the laser does is send a pulse of energy into the capillary that literally vaporizes it. The result is that the capillary disappears and closes. Technically, KTP laser
is a beam generated by a neodymium:YAG laser is directed through a potassium titanyl phosphate crystal to produce a beam in the green visible spectrum; used for photoablation and photocoagulation. Fancy description for a treatment that is relatively pain free and gives visible results. The laser treatment is performed in one of the clinic procedure
rooms and takes from 15-45 minutes in total depending upon the amount of facial veins present. Performed by a cosmetic nurse, this treatment delivers results to remove those unsightly facial veins.
