What Is Laser Vein Treatment?
The Cutera CoolGlide™ combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. 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.

How Does Laser Vein Treatment Work?
The Cutera CoolGlide™ systems 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. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin's surface.

How many treatments will I need?
Often, 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?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered onto the skin. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

What Are The Side Effects?
Although many 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. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

How Soon Will I See Results?
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. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with the Cutera CoolGlide™. Keep in mind several treatments may be necessary. Ideally one would prefer to begin treatments 6 to 9 months before the time of desired results.
