Laser technology is an effective and versatile treatment that can be used to help correct various cosmetic conditions. Whether you are frustrated with acne, lines or wrinkles, or unsightly veins on your face or legs, there is a laser treatment that can help provide you with your ideal aesthetic. In addition to laser skin treatments, at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, we are proud to offer laser vein removal with the CUTERA® system.

The CUTERA® treatment is quick, effective, and offers long-lasting results. No longer will patients need to undergo painful injections to remove unwanted veins from their bodies. Now, a painless laser can help you achieve the vein-free skin you desire. Let’s explore how laser vein removal at Dermacare Medical Aesthetics works! 

What Is Laser Vein Removal?

At Dermcare San Diego, we use CUTERA®’s laser system to remove superficial facial veins and deeper leg veins from both men and women. The laser delivers pulses of energy to the treatment area, which attacks the unsightly veins. This process causes the blood in the veins to coagulate (harden or solidify), eventually destroying the vessel. Over time, your body naturally metabolizes (absorbs) the damaged vessel, forcing the blood to redirect itself to other healthy veins. This process results in smoother, clearer skin in the treated area. And what’s even better is that this laser vein removal procedure is suitable for all skin types and tones. 

What Is Recovery Like?

There is minimal recovery time with the laser vein removal procedure. You may experience redness and swelling for 24 to 48 hours, but this should dissipate shortly after your session. After your procedure, you may feel some slight discomfort, though many patients report feeling no pain at all. Depending on your vein specialist’s post-procedure notes, you may resume regular activities immediately after your laser vein removal treatment session. 

What Results Can I Expect?

Some patients have reported improvement in as little as two weeks, though most patients see noticeable results after a few months. Final results depend on the number of treatment sessions needed and the degree of correction. During your personal consultation with our professionals, you will be given a customized treatment plan with what you can expect. Most patients require three treatment sessions spaced six weeks apart. Though there is a chance that new veins may appear, these veins can also be removed if desired. 

Laser vein removal uses advanced technology for effective treatments that help give you natural-looking, noticeable, and long-lasting results.
