With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the Cutera laser can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.
The Cutera laser combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system.

Patients with dark, light or tanned skin can experience outstanding results with minimal bruising or blistering.

How many 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 the treatments hurt?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand piece. 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.
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.
The Cutera laser systems deliver 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.
