What You Need To Know About Laser Vein Treatments
Laser vein treatments are a fast, effective way of safely reducing and eliminating unwanted spider veins.
*Before/After picture, results may vary*
Our team at LightTouch Med Spa uses the Harmony XL Pro by Alma Lasers to eliminate spider veins with a unique, powerful wavelength of light. This is a non-invasive treatment and a great alternative to sclerotherapy. Using long pulses of light energy emitted from the laser head, unwanted spider veins are targeted and eliminated almost immediately. Results may vary, and multiple treatments may be required for best results.
Before your treatment, we highly recommend booking in for a free consultation so that you have an opportunity to meet our practitioner who will be conducting your treatment. This is a great opportunity to ask any and all questions that you have about our technology, facility, and what to expect during and after your treatment. We will also discuss pricing with you, as pricing can vary depending on the depth and severity of your veins.
During your treatment, you will be required to wear protective eyewear. Your practitioner will put a clear ultrasound gel on the affected area. She will adjust the settings on the Harmony XL Pro, and begin to slowly glide the laser head over the affected area. You may feel a heating sensation, or a sensation that is similar to a snap of a rubber band. Laser vein treatments are relatively painless, however, everyone’s pain tolerance level is different. Should you experience any pain or severe discomfort, be sure to tell your practitioner immediately. She can adjust the levels according to your needs.
After your treatment you may experience redness or slight swelling of the area. This is normal and should dissipate within one to three days. You may notice your spider veins breaking down over the course of the first day to a few days post-treatment. We encourage you to book a complimentary follow-up appointment to ensure your satisfaction. Multiple treatments may be required for optimal results.

How does this treatment eliminate unwanted veins?
The Harmony XL Pro emits wavelengths of energy through the laser head, targeting spider veins in order to damage the tissues without causing damage to other surrounding tissues. The wavelengths are absorbed by blood inside the veins, in turn, causing the veins to collapse and dissolve.
Is this treatment safe?
All laser treatments offered at LightTouch Med Spa Orlando have been deemed safe and are U.S. FDA approved. If you are unsure, see our list of contraindications below to ensure your safety. If you are still unsure, consult your family physician in addition to our practitioners.

Are there contraindications?
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding we cannot treat you at this time. We strongly advise that you refrain from all laser treatments until breastfeeding has ceased.
Other contraindications include:
- Sunburns and other types of burns
- If you will be exposed to the sun after your treatment
- Nerve damage
- Blood clotting
- Glandular issues
If you are unsure about whether or not this treatment is safe for you based on your personal health profile, consult your family physician to determine whether or not this treatment is safe for you.
What are the risks?
In some rare occasions, redness and irritation similar to a sunburn can occur. There is also a very small risk of hyper-pigmentation after treatment. Very few individuals have reported bruising or blistering after treatments.
What are the benefits?
Many individuals who commit to laser vein treatments find an increase in their confidence as they notice a reduction or elimination of spider and varicose veins. Individuals have reported feeling happier and comfortable wearing summer clothing such as shorts and bathing suits.
When will I see results?
A series of 2 to 4 treatments is recommended in monthly intervals for best results.
How long will the results last?
Between 50-70% of individuals find that results are permanent. In some cases, such as for those who spend long periods of standing, sitting, or enduring skin trauma, spider veins can return down the road.
What is the cost of laser vein treatments?
Book a free consultation with one of our practitioners to determine the cost of your treatment. The cost will vary depending on the severity and depth of your veins, along with the number of treatments needed.
