Laser Vein Removal

As many as half of American women are affected by varicose veins – a condition in which blood pools in the veins, causing them to bulge. For some individuals, these veins are small and may improve on their own. Others, however, may experience severe or worsening varicosities that become painful and may even rupture. Fortunately, treatment is available to reduce the size of varicose veins and improve the symptoms associated with them. Endovascular laser therapy, or EVLT, is a non-surgical treatment that uses laser energy to heat the inside of the vein and closes it off to refluxing blood.

Now men and women alike 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 face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.

The Cutera CoolGlide combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to 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. 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.

That varicose veins can form anywhere on the legs though they tend to develop on the insides of the legs and the backs of the calves? The exact cause of varicose veins is unknown though hormones, pregnancy, genetics and age may increase a person’s risk factor. Certain lifestyle habits may also contribute to the development of varicose veins, such as working in a job that requires long periods of standing.

Virtually any area of the body can be treated. Some examples of laser vein treatment areas are around the nose and eyes, the mouth, cheeks, and chin as wells as legs, ankles and thighs.
