Remove varicose veins with laser treatment

If you suffer from varicose veins, then you know how embarrassing a problem they can be. However,for those who need to remove troublesome varicose veins, help is available. There are a number of vein removal methods,but laser treatment has proven to be the most efficient. Varicose veins are usually swollen and twisted, and are purple or bluish in color. They can occur anywhere on the body, but are commonly found on the legs and feet.

About Varicose veins
Varicose veins are enlarged veins. Their presence is a clear signal that the veins are not functioning as they should. When veins are healthy, then the one-way valves within them only allow blood to flow in one direction. However if the valves are dysfunctional, then the blood will flow back into the vein and become stagnant. It is this build-up of blood that causes the vein to swell.

Harmony Laser Treatment for varicose veins
Leg vein laser treatment has become very popular, because the recovery time is much shorter when compared to other options such as Sclerotherapy. The Harmony laser by Alma Lasers is a hand-held device, which can be used to treat varicose veins on any part of the body, including the delicate area around the eyes.

The Harmony laser has multiple wavelengths, and this gives it the flexibility to target veins of varying depths and sizes. The laser emits high intensity beams of light, and the heat targets the vein, causing it to collapse. The heat from the laser does not damage the skin surrounding the veins.

Lasers can remove varicose veins safely and quickly. It is safe enough to be used on different skin types, including darker skin tones.  Treatment is virtually pain-free, as patients only feel a tingling sensation during the procedure, and the side effects are few.
