About Laser Vein Reduction Treatments

Now men and women alike are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past thanks to our Cutera CoolGlide laser! No more painful injections. Using the most advanced technology, our laser can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.

How it Works & Treatment Sensation

The Cutera CoolGlide laser delivers pulses of light energy which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be. Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulse of the energy is delivered from the laser. Although, no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, some patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

Questions Answers
Can my hemangiomas be removed with Laser Vein Reduction treatments? Blood blisters (or hemangiomas) respond very well to our CoolGlide Vein 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 pleasantly surprised by the success of their CoolGlide vascular treatments.
How does Laser Vein Reduction compare to Sclerotherapy treatments? During your consultation, Dr. Desai will advise you on the best course of action, but many physicians and patients prefer the CoolGlide Vein Reduction treatment because there are no painful injections.
How many treatments will I need? Typically patients find that 2 or 3 treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color and size of the vessels being treated. During your consultation, Dr. Desai will advise you on the number of treatments based upon on your personal needs. After treatment, most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months.
Which areas can be treated? We can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small, facial veins (or telangiectasia) can be treated quickly without bruising. Spider veins and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. During your consultation, Dr. Desai will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.
