Approximately 55 percent of women and 45 percent of men suffer from some type of vein problem. Among the most common are spider veins, which are unsightly fine red lines that frequently occur on the face and legs.
Previously, spider vein treatment (called sclerotherapy) required painful injections over the length of each vein. Now, Desert Med Aesthetics offers the Cutera® CoolGlide™ (1064 Nd:YAG) Laser therapy, which delivers pulses of light energy that cause the blood within the vein to coagulate and the vein to eventually disappear. Unlike sclerotherapy, which may have to be repeated over time, laser therapy permanently removes the vein.
Laser therapy treats both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins, for both men and women of all skin tones. Although results are frequently seen immediately for small veins, larger veins may require several treatments spaced over a few weeks’ time.
