Vein Therapy
Unsightly veins on the face, neck, chest and lower extremities such as the legs, ankles and
feet a
re now a thing
of the past, thanks to laser technology,…no more painful injections!
We can now safely
and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper
blue leg veins
on men and women of all skin tones.
  Small bright red colored spots on the chest, abdomen
and face are called cherry angiomas. 
These are due to the formation of  a cluster of tiny capillaries at
the
skin surface.  Many forms of vascular problems can easily and effectively be treated.

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

How many treatments are needed?
Patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated.


Do the treatments hurt?
Patients experience a slight stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, some patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.


What are the possible side effects?
Most patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur.


When will I see results?
The majority of the treated veins will show significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can easily be removed.
