Cutera Laser Vein Therapy
If you’re worried about spider veins or varicose veins, there’s now an effective treatment available to restore your skin and tissues. The Cutera Laser uses light energy to destroy veins that are causing an unsightly appearance. It helps break down blood vessels and redirects blood flow to the veins deep below the skin’s surface so your skin becomes clear and looks more youthful.
Benefits of Cutera Laser Vein Therapy
- Laser energy heats and eliminates abnormal vessels
- Restores natural skin color and tone
- No painful injections required
- Can treat multiple sizes of veins
- Virtually painless and can be performed without topical anesthetic
What Types of Veins Can Be Treated with Cutera Laser Vein Therapy?
This treatment is ideal for patients with small facial veins and larger blue veins. The laser can target these smaller veins and help break them down with virtually no discomfort. The damaged vessels are then reabsorbed by the body while blood flow is redirected to other veins. There are no painful injections involved and most patients only need one or two treatments to achieve results.
If you have very large or knotty varicose veins more advanced treatment may be needed and this could be a sign of a bigger problem.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients notice results after just one or two treatments but the total number of treatments you need will vary depending on the size of the vessels, number of vessels, and the color of the veins. Avoiding vigorous exercise for 24 hours after treatment can help the body heal and supports the best results.
What Can I Expect After Treatment
Some redness or bruising can occur after treatment but this will dissipate within a few days. Larger veins may take some more time to dissolve and disappear completely. While rare, blistering can occur in some patients but the tissues will heal and the effect are not permanent.
If you are having larger veins or areas treated, you may need to wear support hose to keep the tissues in place while the treated areas heal.
How Soon Will I See Results?
We typically expect results about six weeks after treatment but some patients show signs of improvement within the first two weeks of treatment. Larger areas or bigger veins may require more time to heal. Still, you can realistically expect to see full results within a few months of treatment.
