VASCULAR LESIONS, LEG VEINS, AND SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL

Varicose and spider veins are blood vessels that become enlarged and visible due to weakened valves, which cause blood to pool rather than flow to the heart. Harmony’s vascular treatments offer an effective, none-invasive solution that close these veins and reduce or eliminate their appearance.Using advanced light, laser and Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT), Harmony targets the affected blood vessels beneath the skin, leaving you with smooth, clear skin and renewed confidence. The treatments are safe and effective and provide reliable, long term results.

SCLEROTHERAPY

Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat blood vessel malformations and also malformations of the lymphatic system. A medicine is injected into the vessels, which makes them shrink.

LASER CLEARVEIN

Alma Lasers has created the Clearvein Laser attachment for the Harmony XL Pro laser treatment to eradicate spider veins and vascular lesions with a unique wavelength of light. The non-invasive laser treatment utilizes a long pulse of light laser energy to destroy the defective vein altogether. The wave energy precisely targets the area under the skin’s surface so that the top layer of skin is left completely intact and untouched. The vein absorbs the laser energy and then immediately collapses, with an immediate visible blanching of the vessel.

FAQ

HOW DOES IT WORK?


The laser treatment works by emitting a selected amount of light energy that is selected specifically to pick up any brown lesions (sun damage, freckling, discolouration etc) and or any red lesions (broken veins, thread veins, redness or rosacea). As the heat is emitted it tightens the skin and stimulates collagen and elastin while also reducing any open pores.




WHAT IS INVOVED?


The hand piece is designed to recycle any energy that left the skin so that no energy is lost and the patient gets the maximum result out of the treatment. The hand piece also has a constant cooling tip to aid comfort through out the procedure.




WHAT IS THE RESULT?


Simultaneous contact cooling prevents burns and allows for more comfortable treatment, while a specialized applicator allows your physician to treat large areas in less time.

Whether you have light, dark or tanned skin, coarse or fine hair, Harmony achieves complete hair removal for all areas of the body that’s safe, quick and best of all- virtually painless.




WHAT ARE THE RISKS OR SIDE EFFECTS?


After treatment, there will be heat in the area and some redness. Pigmentation will become darker and form slight scabbing. In rare cases edema and blistering can occur. This is a normal side effect of treatment and will settle within a few days.




WILL I NEED A TEST PATCH?


Before any laser treatment we require Patch test and full medical history of our patient, in order to avoid and complication.




WHAT IS THE BASIC AFTERCARE ADVICE?


We will give you detailed advice about post-treatment care in your consultation, and give you a reminder after every treatment session.
