Veins, Veins, Veins: Vascular Lesions, Leg Veins, and Spider Vein Removalby Harmony Blog___ 05.9.2018
Veins are a vital, incredible part of our cardiovascular system, but as we age, they often start to weaken and fail. The veins beneath our skin create an interlocking transfer network that moves blood from our pumping heart to the rest of our body. Unfortunately, when they weaken, the vessels aren’t strong enough to move the blood to its next location, resulting in blotchy, enlarged, and blueish pools near the skin’s surface.
Problematic veins are a health issue, not just a cosmetic nuisance
Vascular lesions, varicose veins, enlarged leg veins, and spider veins are unique because they are a physical problem that double as unwanted cosmetic symptoms. Women most commonly experience these cosmetic vein issues and they affect more than 50% of the entire adult population. Improving overall cardiovascular health with diet improvements and an increase of activity for a healthy lifestyle do play a role in preventing vein appearance issues, but since it is a hereditary syndrome it cannot be completely avoided.
The Clear Vein treatment
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.
There are a handful of treatment options for spider and enlarged leg vein removal, but none are as easy and pain-free as Clearvein. Sclerotherapy, which is a common alternative procedure, must be performed in a doctor’s office and has a long list of negative side effects, including bruising, swelling, bleeding, discoloration, and infection. With the Harmony XL Pro Clearvein Laser Treatment, there’s no need for surgery, numbing, gels, or needles and you can go right back to normal activity after the 30-minute ‘lunchtime procedure.’
Advanced fluorescence technology (AFT) and cutting-edge laser technology make it possible to reduce and eliminate your cosmetic vein problems in just one sitting. Depending on the severity of your case, the physician operating the Clearvein laser may recommend up to three sessions, but the results are immediate and long-lasting. Fight the signs of aging the easy way and eliminate ugly or painful varicose or spider vein abnormalities with the most effective laser treatment. Clearvein is safe for all skin types, pain-free, and non-invasive with virtually no side-effects!
Veins are not just a concern for women
Women are usually more prone to suffer leg veins outbreaks following pregnancy. Nonetheless, men are also enjoying the Clear vein treatment as part of their anti-aging regime.
