Laser: Treatment for Spider Veins
Spider Veins are dilated small blood vessels that are tiny, thin veins that range in color. Although they can be inconspicuous at first, over time they usually become easily visible through the skin. This and can affect a person’s self confidence and can even stop a person from choosing what they want to wear!
Laser based treatments with the Cutera xeo® offer an effective, non-invasive, non- surgical way to minimize the visible discoloration caused by mild to moderate vascular damage, like spider veins. The precisely calibrated laser targets the distressed vein with light, causing the ravished vessel to painlessly reabsorb into the body, minimizing and eliminating the appearance of discoloration in the skin. The Cutera xeo® YAG laser includes a cooling tip to help keep the surface of the skin relaxed and at a cool temperature. After treatment patients are able to return to normal activities immediately. Depending on the severity of the veins, multiple treatments might be required.
