LightTouch Offers Safe and Effective Vein Treatments in Markham
Have you noticed that the veins in your leg are beginning to resemble bulging cords of rope rather than that of blood vessels? Does it look, and even feel, as if someone has tied a sailor’s knot in the vein’s of your leg? LightTouch Med Spa offers laser vein treatments to the Markham area to eradicate unsightly and potentially harmful varicose veins.
Read on to learn how LightTouch vein treatments can help you free yourself from varicose veins!
Cosmetic vs. Medical
Many believe that the treatment of varicose veins, or spider veins, has to do mainly with cosmetic issues, but this is not the case! For some spider veins can be seen but not felt, while for others, the adverse effects of varicose veins include dull achiness, heaviness, throbbing, cramping, and swelling of the leg.
There is also an increased risk of a dangerous type of blood clot, known as deep vein thrombosis, for people with noticeable varicose veins; therefore it is pertinent to seek medical advice if you suffer from any of these symptoms, as it could lead to further damage.
Yes, some obtain vein treatments for aesthetic purposes only, as our Markham facility is well equipped to handle, but vein treatments can also aid in the prevention of further issues. Depending on the location of the varicose veins, which can be more noticeable at the surface of the skin but can occur deeper in the body, LightTouch Med Spa offers Markham residents the use of the Harmony XL Laser System to reach varicose veins at all levels of the body.
The Harmony XL
The Harmony XL Laser System by Alma Lasers is highly effective and is an FDA approved form of treatment for varicose veins. This state-of-the-art laser system targets the red, blue, or purple pigment of the broken or enlarged vein.
This pinpoint localization allows for the vein to absorb the heat energy from the Harmony XL while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. The laser’s heat energy coagulates the blood in the varicose vein, forcing it to collapse and become reabsorbed into the body.
Generally, two to three treatments are advised to see the full effects on the surface veins, while four or five treatments are needed to reach deeper veins.
