Spider Veins

Now You Can Get Rid of Unsightly Spider Veins Quickly and with the Least Bit of Discomfort.

Do you suffer from unsightly spider veins on your face or body? Are your spider veins an embarrassment and a cause of concern? Do your spider veins dictate the kind of clothes you wear?

Spider veins or Telangiectasia are tiny damaged veins that appear on the surface of the skin on areas of the body like the face and the legs. Although they aren’t harmful or painful, they can be unsightly – especially when they affect the face. From blue to red and even purple, they can form lines, webs, and even branches. You might even see them darken over time.

What is Cutera Laser Vein Therapy?

Cutera Laser Vein Therapy is a laser therapy that is specially designed to get rid of any signs of unsightly spider veins on the face and body. Laser wavelengths are used to deliver a vascular laser system. The therapy is safe, quick, and extremely effective. No matter whether you have tiny spider veins or deep and dark ones, or whether your skin is light-colored or tanned, the Cutera Laser Vein Therapy will work successfully.

How Cutera Laser Vein Therapy Works

Gentle pulses of light energy are delivered to the affected area – on the face or the body. These light energy pulses cause the blood within the veins to coagulate. The vessels are destroyed and reabsorbed by the body over time. The blood flow is directed to veins that are deeper under the skin’s surface, which is where it should normally be.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are You a Candidate for the Cutera Laser Vein Therapy?

While the Cutera Laser Vein Therapy can be used on anyone – no matter the tone or shade of skin, our experts will advise you on the best course of action for you. If you are a candidate for this therapy, our experts will let you know how many treatments will be required for your condition.

Our physicians will evaluate your spider veins and decide on the best course of action.

Is the Cutera Laser Vein Therapy a Painful Procedure?

No, the therapy is not painful. However, you might notice a stinging sensation when the pulses are delivered. The procedure does not even require the administration of a topic anesthetic or pain medication. However, if you have a low pain threshold, you are free to ask for the application of a topical anesthetic to ensure minimal discomfort during the procedure.

What Can I Expect the Day of My Laser Treatment?

Our staff will go through what to expect the day of treatment as well as the days to weeks post-treatment. We are happy to answer any questions that you have and will make sure to follow up with you post-treatment.

What Can I Expect After the Laser Treatment?

The vessels on your legs may blanch (turn white or gray), temporarily darken, completely disappear, or raise up to almost appear like a cat scratch. We recommend staying off your feet for the rest of the day and being careful to avoid sun exposure for a few weeks post-treatment. A follow-up appointment will also be scheduled.

What Areas Can be Treated?

We can treat spider veins virtually anywhere on the body.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Typically it takes 2-3 treatments to obtain full desired results. We recommend scheduling a consultation on what would work best for you.

When Will I See the Results?

Results will be visible anywhere between two to six weeks. But your body will continue to heal for several months, and the best results will be noticed after several months. You will first notice the spider veins getting lighter before they finally disappear.

Will the Spider Veins Resurface?

Once treated with the Cutera Laser Vein Therapy, the spider veins are destroyed and cannot resurface. However, new spider veins can surface, but these can be treated too.

What Are the Side Effects of Laser Treatment for Spider Veins?

A change in skin color, some pain, and bruising are common, however, they will soon disappear.
