We recently added the
CUTERA Coolglide Xeo laser system to our vein practice. This laser is
superior in the field for its ability to treat spider veins more
effectively. We are able to treat veins in patients with darker skin
types which many lasers on the market today cannot. The pinpoint
accuracy of this laser has greatly improved the treatments of very fine
or lighter colored veins in many locations on the body such as: face,
nose, ankles and chest area.
Another valuable function of this laser is the IPL (INTENSE PULSED
LIGHT) handpiece. This is being successfully used to treat areas of skin
staining caused by “hemosiderin” (iron) due to incompetent veins. This
is very common in the lower extremities in people who have varicose
veins, venous incompetence and dense spider vein clusters.
CUTERA Coolglide Xeo laser system is also able to perform Hair Removal,
Photo Genesis (Cutera Limelight IPL), and Laser Genesis.
Many patients have
requested this service be added to our menu. We offer this to our
existing patients who wish to continue with improving their appearance
after their vein treatments. Both men and women benefit from the fast,
SAFE and effective treatments. We are able to treat a man’s back in
approximately 30 minutes. All hair removal requires 3 – 6 treatments
over a period of time.

Both men and women who
have had facial vein treatments are interested in looking the best they

skin surface and stimulating collagen regrowth. Additional heat is
generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness. This treatment is
often done in combination with CUTERA LIMELIGHT IPL for maximum results
