Vascular Lesion Removal

What is Vascular Lesion Removal and How does it work?

The Harmony XL Pro laser exposes the vascular legion to short pulses of visible light. This causes a sharp increase in temperature which bursts the vessel’s wall. The vessel is then absorbed back into the blood, making it no longer visible. Everyone is individual but we would expect around 3 6 treatments over a 5 month period. The treatment is quick and effective. Vascular lesion removal takes approximately 30 minutes.
