This treatment is often combined with Laser Genesis and Limelight IPL to give more satisfying results. The ability to add in a vein treatment broadens the scope of treatment.
Common problems that we treat include:
Body or Facial veins - up to 3mm wide
Veins on other parts of the body.
An IPL machine will treat many tiny capillaries associated with facial redness, but will not be able to eradicate deep redness in the skin or larger veins on the face.
This is where our Vascular Laser and Laser Genesis treatments are more specific and more effective.
Pulses of light energy are delivered that 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, one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, colour, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary.
Do the treatments hurt?
Most experience a brief stinging sensation. No local anaesthesia or pain medication is usually required because the handpiece is cooled for maximum comfort. Clients may use a topical anaesthetic prior to treatment if desired. We can also provide full pain management. After the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
What are the possible side effects?
Most report few if any side effects, but those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects usually last less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. We can give you complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
When will I see results?
Most see 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® Vascular Laser.
What about larger veins and varicose veins?
We can assess your situation free of charge and advise which treatment suits you best. If appropriate, we can refer you to another clinic more suitable for you.
