Frequently Asked Questions for Laser Vein Therapy

People who are pregnant, diabetic, under 18 years of age, or who have skin cancer will NOT be treated for laser skin therapy. If you have any questions about medicine you are taking, or a health condition you have, please speak to your medical practitioner.
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
The Cutera Excel 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, where it should be.
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. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.
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.
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 Excel.

Every year, I would notice more spider veins on my legs until I started to feel uncomfortable about wearing shorts in the summer. Laser Vein Therapy removed my spider veins and I'm so happy with the results.Karen A.
