If broken or dilated capillaries (or other various vascular lesions) are a concern, then we have an effective non-surgical solution for you. Using our AFT hand piece on the Harmony XL, we can treat superficial vascular and pigmented irregularities. The treatment is safe, quick and effective.
Varicose and spider veins are blood vessels that become enlarged and visible due to weakened valves, which cause blood to pool rather than to flow. Harmony laser’s vascular treatments offer an effective, none-invasive solution that close these veins and reduce or eliminate their appearance.
We offer a free consultation, with one of our skin experts who will discuss the treatment and any questions you have about choosing this procedure.
By exposing a pigmented or vascular lesion to short pulses of visible light, the temperature in the highly concentrated area of haemoglobin can be raised sharply, enough to damage the vessel wall and shatter. The vessels are then absorbed by the body, making them less visible or completely destroying them.
Depending on your skin type (and the lesion being treated) some redness and swelling may be visible, but will usually subside around 48 hours after treatment. lesions may appear darker around 5-7 days later. During treatment, some patients may feel a mild discomfort, but there isn’t any need for numbing agents or anaesthetic. The treatment is quick and effective, usually requiring around 3-6 sessions once every 4-6 weeks.
Treatment is suitable for most people. However, prior to treatment a free consultation is mandatory during which a medical history and assessment of the desired treatment area is carried out. This will then allow us to determine suitability for treatment, how many sessions required and the expected results. Results can vary from patient to patient.
