The Cutera® CoolGlide difference
The Cutera® CoolGlide 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 with minimal bruising.
How does CoolGlide Vein Therapy work?
The Cutera® CoolGlide systems deliver pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later absorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.
Who can be treated with the Cutera® CoolGlide?
The Cutera® CoolGlide features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of clients of all skin tones. Your clinician will advise you if CoolGlide Vein Therapy is right for you.
What types of veins can be treated?
The Cutera® CoolGlide 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 can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. A careful evaluation with your clinician will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessarily depends on the number, colour, and size of the vessels being
treated. Since individual results vary, ask your clinician about your specific condition.
Do the treatments hurt?
Most clients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required.
What happens after the treatment?
Following your treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. When larger veins are treated, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months following treatment.
Patients who have leg vein treatments may be advised to wear a support stocking for a short period of time
What are the possible side effects?
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.
Are there any restrictions on my activity after 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 to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your exposure to the sun.
When will I see 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® CoolGlide.
