Varicose Veins Milton
Visible veins and vessels on the face, legs, neck or chest can be frustrating. Whether small networks of telangiectasia (spider veins) or larger, more pronounced skin lesions such as hemangiomas or venous lakes, these skin conditions have a way of making us feel uncomfortable. Though their causes are uncertain, many visible veins and broken capillaries are linked to sun exposure and skin aging. Facial redness and flushing can also be an indicator of rosacea, an inflammatory skin condition. Using the Harmony XL Laser System by Alma Laser, LightTouch Med Spa can safely and comfortably remove unsightly varicose veins in Milton, Oakville, Mississauga, and Waterloo.

What type of lasers are used for laser vein treatment?
Depending on the nature of the vessels, either the Nd:YAG or an AFT treatment will be used to produce the desired effect. In fact, using a combination of 1064-nm laser light in conjunction with various broadband AFT treatment parameters has, in many cases, been shown to be more effective than laser treatment alone. Whereas classical IPL works for certain smaller varicose veins, it is generally accepted that Nd:YAG technology is much more effective than IPL for the majority of deeper vein treatments.
How does laser vein treatment work?
The Harmony XL Laser System targets pigment. The red, purple or blue pigment of the broken or enlarged vein absorbs the heat energy from the laser, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. This targeted laser energy disrupts the vein or vessel, causing the blood inside to coagulate. Once coagulation has taken place, the vein collapses and is absorbed back into the body. The blood flow will be redirected to a vein deeper in the skin. In some instances, targeted vessels will clear instantly. Generally, two to three treatments are recommended for optimal clearance of surface veins and four to five treatments for deeper or clustered veins and vessels.
