Vascular Lesions – Red Veins or Spider Veins

You don’t have to live with unsightly veins anymore! Rather than spending valuable time and money trying to hide them, or having painful injections, eliminate them with the most advanced laser technology available, available at Burnside Cosmetic.

Vascular lesions include a range of conditions. Whether it be leg veins, facial veins, angiomas, or venous lakes, laser and light-based devices have become a viable treatment option to safely and effectively remove and diminish unwanted vascular concerns.

Vascular lesions are a type of common skin concern, affecting up to 50% of women aged 18 years and older. Spider veins, telangiectasia, and diffuse redness are often a result of aging, sun damage or pregnancy and sometimes genetic. Often mistaken for a sunburn or rosy skin, redness in the face are small blood vessels that can be easily treated.

At Burnside Cosmetic vascular lesions are treated by laser. Dr Koulos effectively treats superficial and deep vascular lesions on the face and body, with a fast and effective method which is like a magic eraser. One minute there, next minute they’re gone! It is a process however, and several treatments are usually necessary with minimal discomfort or downtime.

What to Expect


All patients will require an initial consultation with the Dr Koulos where all your questions will be answered.

​Dr Koulos will discuss whether the veins are suitable for treatment and will provide you with a personalised treatment plan.

During the treatment, the laser will pulse the vein, occluding the blood flow, shutting it down. Most people will report that it feels like a slight zap momentarily. The tip of the handpiece has is cold and this provides comfort before and after each pulse. Clients do not find this treatment painful.

All treatments are followed up with a post treatment appointment and assessment.

Vascular treatments with the XEO laser are safe and comfortable. Our team are highly trained in vein removal and delivering optimal patient results.

Common Questions about This Treatment

The results from laser treatments with the XEO laser will depend on the specific issue being treated and may require more than one treatment. Most clients will be happy after their series of treatments and may need a top up treatment down the track if new vessels appear.
