Facial and Leg Vein Therapy
Now men and women alike are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past, thanks to Cutera CoolGlide. No more painful injections! With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the Cutera CoolGlide can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.

The Cutera CoolGlide Difference
The Cutera CoolGlide Laser combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser treatment. 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. This treatment can be benefical on many parts of the body where noticable veins or capillaries are a problem. The prominent broken blood vessels of the cheeks in a rosacea patient, for instance, are very responsive to laser therapy.

CoolGlide Vein Therapy FAQs

How does CoolGlide Vein Therapy Work?
The Cutera CoolGlide Laser delivers 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, where it should be.

Who can be treated with the Cutera CoolGlide?
The Cutera CoolGlide features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of patients of all skin tones. Your laser specialist will advise you if CoolGlide Vein Therapy is right for you. Larger varicose veins may need surgical treatment prior to treating spider veins with CoolGlide Laser.

How many treatments will I need?
Often, patients find that two or three treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.

Do the treatments hurt?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. The cooled handpiece of the CoolGlide usually makes topical anesthesia or pain medication unnecessary. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

What happens after the treatment?
Following your treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. When larger veins are treated, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months following treatment. Patients who have leg vein treatments may be advised to wear support hose for a short period of time and avoid vigorous exercise or prolonged sitting in one position. Minimizing sun exposure and use of sunscreen is always advised before and after laser treatments.

What are the possible side effects of Cutera CoolGlide?
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.

When 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 Laser.
