VASCULAR LESIONS, LEG VEINS, AND SPIDER VEIN TREATMENTS
VASCULAR LESIONS, LEG VEINS, AND SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL
Varicose and spider veins are blood vessels that swell and protrude from under the skin. Their valves are weakened, which worsens the blood flow in the area.
Harmony’s vascular treatments offer an effective, non-surgical treatment that will help narrow down those veins and reduce their visibility. It uses advanced light, laser, and Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) to leave you with healthy-looking skin for the long term.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure during which medicine is injected into the blood vessels in order to make their walls contract. It is used for treating malformations of blood vessels and those of the lymphatic system.

The Harmony XL Pro laser treatment now comes with an attachment from Alma Lasers, Clearvein Laser, which helps treat spider veins and vascular lesions with a special wavelength of light. This non-surgical laser treatment uses a long pulse of light laser energy to disintegrate the malformed vein. The wave specifically targets the area under the skin surface so that the epidermis is left unbroken. The vein is destroyed immediately after absorbing the laser energy, and the area is whitened.
