What Is a Cutera Vein Laser Treatment?

Do you want to get rid of your spider leg veins? Do you want your skin to appear healthy and clear once again? If so, the Cutera laser treatment might be your answer for eliminating these visible veins.

The revolutionary Cutera laser treatment is safe and effective in eliminating both small and large varicose veins and spider veins. Let’s talk about how this in-office treatment works, and where you can go to get clear, healthy skin on your legs, face, and other areas of your body.

How Does Cutera Laser Treatment Work?

The Cutera laser system aims to naturally remove visible spider veins and varicose veins through a cooled handpiece and various energy settings. Because laser energy is used, the procedure is non-invasive and produces no scarring.

You can expect the appearance of some redness in the treated area during the first two days following the procedure. You may begin to see signs of improvement in as early as two weeks. If the veins reappear, you may need to have a follow-up treatment to eliminate them for good.

Cutera Vein Laser Treatment Process

After putting gel on the area of your skin, your doctor will harness the Cutera laser to target the spider veins. The laser produces pulses of light energy that will slightly solidify the blood in the vein, thereby destroying the vein. The body will then naturally eliminate the vein, and the blood will flow through nearby veins in the area instead.

The Cutera laser treatment uses a cooling gel to avoid any blistering or damage to the skin. It also prevents any possible pain. Most patients report feeling no discomfort from the treatment. A Zimmer cooling device will control it, so anesthetics are not necessary.

After Having the Cutera Vein Treatment

After the treatment, you can expect the following:

  • Mild redness in the treated area
  • Wearing support hose to facilitate proper circulation and healing
  • (In treating larger varicose veins:) brownish pigment, which will disappear within a few weeks or months

Let your vein doctor know if you experience anything that is unusual, unexpected, or painful. Within weeks, you will see your skin become clear, without those awful veins anymore.
