How does the laser work for vein removal?
The Harmony XL laser that we use for laser vein removal is an advanced piece of technology. It provides high quality results that last, and the procedure is virtually painless. Lasers emit high energy at a specific wavelength (or colour) in a single beam. Intense pulsed light (IPL) is broadband light and delivers hundreds of wavelengths (or colours) in a single discharge. Both lasers and IPL are able to specifically target blood (haemoglobin) in the skin without damaging surrounding tissues. The light energy is absorbed by blood inside the veins, heating up the vessel wall, which collapses and then dissolves. Whereas Nd:YAG lasers are able to deliver focused pulses of energy to individual larger blood vessels, IPL and pulsed dye lasers are more suitable for the red flares of vessels.
