Laser Vein Therapy for Spider Veins

Now men and women are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past, thanks to CUTERA CoolGlide. No more painful injections! With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the CUTERA CoolGlide can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.

The CUTERA CoolGlide difference. 
The CUTERA  CoolGlide combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely and effectively. Patients with dark, light or tanned skin can experience outstanding results with minimal bruising or blistering.

How Does the CUTERA CoolGlide Vein Therapy work?
The CUTERA CoolGlide systems deliver pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will the be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.

What types of Vein can be treated?
All veins from all parts of the body. Small facial veins can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are NOT good candidates. A careful evaluation with your physician will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.

What about Blood Blisters and Port Wine Stains?
Blood Blisters or “Hemangiomas”  respond very well to the CUTERA CoolGlideVein Therapy. Usually with just one treatment. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions who had given up on finding a solution have been overwhelmed by the success of their CoolGlide vascular treatment.

How many treatments will I need?
Often, patients find tat one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number , color and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.

Does it hurt?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand piece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

What happens after the treatment?
Following your treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. When larger veinsare treated, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or month following treatment. Patients who have leg vein treatments may be advised to wear support hose for a short period of time
