Whether your skin is light or dark in colour, Cutera® laser offers treatment for a wide range of blood vessels, from tiny spider veins to deep reticular veins. By emitting adaptable
wavelength pulses of light energy, Cutera® laser causes the clotting of blood in the vein. This action allows the destruction of the vessels, which are then reabsorbed by the body.
The blood that circulated before in these veins will be redirected to veins located well below the epidermis, where it should normally flow naturally. Based on the number, color and size of the blood vessels to be treated, usually 1 or 2 sessions are sufficient.
The unsightly veins on all parts of the body can be treated with the Cutera® laser. On the face, small veins, which are referred to as “telangiectasia”, offer very good results. This
technology is also suitable for spider veins and deep varicose veins of the legs, as well as the red blisters (angiomas) and wine stains. However, it is not designed for twisted varicose veins, which are treated with sclerotherapy. Unlike sclerotherapy (treatment of varicose veins by injection of a sclerosing product), with the Cutera® laser there is no injection; it is fast, safe and effective.
Process of the treatment
- Meeting with our specialist for a consultation (collection of data) and the implementation of the treatment plan according to the areas and conditions to be treated (number of treatments, duration, treatment risks, etc.)
- Approval of the treatment by the doctor
- First treatment session
- Follow-up on the intervention
- Subsequent treatment sessions, if applicable
Will the results be noticeable soon after the treatment?
The results may vary. They will be immediate for certain types of blood vessels. For other veins, you will notice a significant improvement approximately 2 to 6 weeks following the treatment. However, for deeper and older veins, the result may only be visible a few months following the treatment.
What are the side effects?
Your skin may become slightly red and swollen; these side effects usually disappear within 24 hours. Although rare, bruises or blisters may appear in some cases.
What precautions are recommended following the treatment?
For veins treated in the legs, we recommend wearing compression stockings for a few days. You should also avoid exposing your skin to the sun. If you do, we strongly recommend applying sunscreen to the treated areas.
Is the treatment painful?
You will probably feel a tingling sensation with the pulses. However, the Cutera® laser comes with a built-in cooler. There is usually no post-treatment pain.
