Both women and men are affected by the appearance of mesh-like capillaries and visibly unattractive veins on their legs. They appear for various reasons, primarily due to genetic susceptibility, obesity, pregnancy, spending a long time standing, wearing high-heel shoes, etc. Varicose and spider veins are blood vessels that grow larger than normal and become more visible due to weakening of their walls. With the most advanced versatile platform Harmony XL Pro, developed by Alma Lasers, those unattractive blood vessels can be effectively eliminated. A combination of technologies (Dye-VL + LP Nd: YAG) is used to treat varicose and spider veins of various sizes and located at different depths.

It is a real challenge to remove them because the patient’s condition very often necessitates work with the applicator on areas of different sizes and at different depths. Laser energy is absorbed by haemoglobin in the blood and is transformed into heat, at which point the blood coagulates and the vein is destroyed. The result is smooth and gentle skin, plus higher self-confidence. The procedures are completely safe, and the effect is lasting.
