Unsightly facial and leg veins are a common problem for many people, and these unpleasant displays are often apparent in the face and/or legs. These unwanted veins can not only cause an individual to have less self-confidence, but they can also discourage some people from wearing clothing that shows off their legs. The Cutera XEO Laser® offers a noninvasive alternative that effectively treats a wide range of vessels from minute spider veins to deep blue reticular veins on men and women of all skin tones.
The most common causes of spider veins include:
The best candidates for the treatment of unsightly veins are in good overall health and have realistic expectations. During your consultation, we will discuss the procedure and help decide if laser treatment is right for you.
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and does not require anesthesia or pain medication. Each session can last anywhere between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the number of areas undergoing treatment.
After the treatment is complete, the targeted areas may appear bruised, swollen, or red, similar to a sunburn. These symptoms are normal and will subside after a couple days. Arnica cream may be applied to reduce bruising, and patients should avoid sun exposure as much as possible for a few weeks following treatment.
Most patients show significant improvement in two to six weeks after treatment. However, final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, new veins may appear and these too may be removed with the Cutera Laser.
