LASER VEIN THERAPY
What is Laser Vein Therapy?
Laser Vein Therapy is used to target spider veins in the face and legs. The gold standard treatment for spider veins is laser therapy. Spider veins, also known medically as telangiectasia or venulectasias, are tiny red, blue or purple thread-like veins near the surface of the skin that often take on the appearance of a spider's web. These perpetually dilated and visible veins, caused by increased pressure to the veins, can develop on any part of the body, including the face, but most often appear on the thighs, calves, ankles or buttocks.
How It Works
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.
