Cutera Laser Vein Therapy For The Face & Body
in New Canaan, CT
WHAT MAKES THE CUTERA LASER DIFFERENT THAN OTHER VEIN REMOVAL TREATMENTS?
The Cutera Laser combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively. Patients with dark, light or tanned skin can experience outstanding results.
HOW DOES CUTERA LASER VEIN THERAPY WORK?
The Cutera Laser delivers pulses of light energy which 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, where it should be.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR A CUTERA LASER TREATMENT?
The Cutera Laser features a unique design and long wavelength that allows the treatment of patients of all skin tones. Your physician will advise you if Cutera Laser Vein Therapy is right for you.
What types of veins can be treated with the Cutera Laser?
The Cutera Laser can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small, facial veins (or “telangiectasia”) can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. A careful evaluation with your physician will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CUTERA LASER AND SCLEROTHERAPY FOR VEIN TREATMENTS?
Your doctor will advise you on the best course of action, but many physicians and patients prefer Cutera Laser Vein Therapy because there are no painful injections.
cAN THE CUTERA LASER TREAT BLOOD BLISTERS AND PORT WINE STAINS?
Blood blisters or “hemangiomas” respond very well to Cutera Laser treatment, usually with just one session. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions who had given up on finding a solution have been overwhelmed by the success of their Cutera Laser vascular treatments. Consult your physician for a thorough evaluation.
HOW MANY CUTERA LASER TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.
DO CUTERA LASER TREATMENTS HURT?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A CUTERA LASER VEIN TREATMENT?
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF A CUTERA VEIN TREATMENT?
Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.
WHAT OUR PATIENTS HAVE TO SAY
“Dr. Perez has been my go-to for years. She is always incredibly accommodating and helpful. I have come to her for various services, and I always leave feeling very well taken care of. I would recommend her to all of my family and friends.” -Emilie G.
ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS ON MY ACTIVITY AFTER A CUTERA TREATMENT?
Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately. However, it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.
HOW LONG AFTER A CUTERA TREATMENT WILL I SEE MY RESULTS?
Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown 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 Laser.
