About Cutera Laser Treatment
With a compact handheld device, the Cutera Laser uses a safe, effective laser wavelength that improves the skin’s vascular system. Cutera Laser technology reduces red, brown, purple and blue veins that may appear near the surface of the skin or deep below it. Surface and deep layer veins, such as spider veins or reticular veins, can be greatly improved from one procedure.
Cutera Laser treatment is non-surgical and uses laser technology to provide you with quick results.
With brief bursts of energy and heat, the Cutera Laser device is applied to your irritating veins. The heat and energy emitted coagulates the blood in the veins and renders the vein unusable. The body then absorbs the vein and blood flow is corrected to move deeper within the body. In the weeks following your procedure, you will see dramatic improvement as the body diminishes the dark veins and your beautiful, natural skin color becomes consistent.
Veins are eliminated quickly and safely to produce beautiful results.
Cutera Laser treatment is versatile and can be used on many different skin conditions. This treatment is commonly used to address vascular concerns such as spider veins and Rosacea. These symptoms may be caused by aging, genetics, sun damage or pregnancy.
Spider veins are small, fine veins that often develop in sprawling clusters visible through the skin. They commonly develop in the lips, nose, and cheeks. Spider veins are sometimes uncomfortable and may cause pain, itching and unflattering patterns along the surface of the skin. The Cutera Laser treatment will quickly reduce these surface veins for an even skin tone.
This skin condition often begins in people who blush or flush easily. Rosacea may cause the symptom of blushing and flushing to get worse and increasingly red as time goes by. The most common type of rosacea addressed by Cuter Laser treatment is erythematotelangiectatic rosacea. This form of rosacea causes redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels to form at the surface of your skin. By removing the blood vessels from the surface of your skin, blushing and redness will greatly be reduced. Rosacea is not a comfortable condition to have and Cutera Laser treatment can help reduce your symptoms before they get any worse.

Some patients experience a stinging sensation as the laser wavelength is administered to their treatment area. Local anesthesia and pain medication are not normally required, although topical anesthesia is offered.

Before your appointment, you will be instructed to avoid smoking and taking antihistamines. These products affect your blood circulation and may cause complications during the procedure and recovery.

We recommend you call our offices if you have any questions or are unsure about aspects of the procedure. We want our patients to be confident in their treatment choice.
When you arrive for your procedure, your skin will be cleaned and a topical numbing agent may be applied. The Cutera Laser device will be applied to the predetermined areas of your skin. The device will administer pulses of light energy. These pulses interact with the blood in the vein, causing it to coagulate. Over the next few weeks, the blood vessel will break down and be reabsorbed by the body. Your body will naturally correct your blood flow, making Cutera Laser treatment safe and efficient at removing unnecessary blood vessels.
Most patients are able to drive home and return to their regular schedule after their treatment is complete.
Redness and bruising are common symptoms of laser treatment. Treatment on larger veins may produce a dark pigmentation to exist for a few weeks.

The compression garments will help the leg’s adjustment and blood flow.

However, it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment.
