Varicose and spider veins are blood vessels that become enlarged and visible due to weakened or damaged valves, which cause blood to pool rather than flow to the heart. Both can appear in the same areas on the body.
Spider veins are thiner and smaller than Varicose veins and usually appear in a starburst or web-like pattern on the body. Spider veins are more predominant in women than in men, affecting about 75 percent of the female population. They are usually red, purple, or blue in color and often appear on the legs and/or face. Spider Veins are seen as a cosmetic procedure.
Apart from being readily visible, spider veins can also cause pain, aching, burning, and swelling.
Varicose veins poses serious risks to health . They are usually buldge and can be short as an inch or up to 3 feet in length. Varicose veins can appear the colour of normal skin or appear in green, blue or purple colours and often appear on the legs and/or face. Varicose veins can be more than cosmetic concerns for most patient.
Varicose veins can have no symptoms, or can be painful, itchy, achy, burning or bleeding. Also, they can develop blood clots known as supeficial vein thrombosis or phlebitis condition, which can be severly painful, very red and swollen for a few weeks.
Alma Lasers has invented the ClearVein Laser attachment for the Harmony XL Pro laser treatment to eliminate spider veins and vascular lesions with a unique wavelength of light. Harmony’s ClearVein treatments offer effective, non-invasive solutions that close these veins and reduce or eliminate their appearance. The treatments are safe and effective and provide reliable, long term results.
Advanced fluorescence technology (AFT) and cutting-edge laser technology make it possible to reduce and eliminate your cosmetic vein problems in just a sitting. The non-invasive laser treatment uses 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.
Depending on the severity of your case, an average of 4 treatments are required to remove the veins from larger areas, such as the legs. While smaller areas, such as the face, may need up to 3 sessions. Keep in mind, each treatment session lasts about 30 minutes.
Yes, the treatment for Spider Veins and Varicose Veins is similar. The ClearVein procedures are safe and effective for all skin types, pain-free, and provide reliable, long term results with virtually no side-effects!
