Vascular conditions are dominant in skin types I to III

Patients presenting with vascular disorders are a common theme in physicians’ offices. Areas affected are the face, neck, chest and lower extremities such as the legs, ankles and feet. Physicians typically use drug therapy, lasers or light devices, or a combination of both, to address vascular problems–depending on the indication.

Who can be treated with the Cutera Laser?

The Cutera Laser features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of patients of all skin tones. Your laser specialist at Ruba Bar Laser & Skin Care will advise you if Cutera Laser Vein Therapy is right for you.

The Cutera Laser difference

The Cutera Laser 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.

How does Cutera Laser Vein Therapy work?

The Cutera Laser delivers 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.

Cutera answers the challenge of treating most vascular indications

In general, the broad range of vascular indications dictates the clinical challenge. With lasers, specifically, understanding the combination of parameters to achieve success is critical. Is the pulse duration adjusted to vessel size and is adequate fluence being delivered to destroy the target? Is there ample cooling to prevent epidermal injury? For most, there is a learning curve, but broadening your treatment options will contribute to both patient satisfaction and practice growth.

What types of veins can be treated?

The Cutera Laser 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 and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. A careful evaluation with your laser specialist at Ruba Bar Laser & Skin Care will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.

What about blood blisters and port wine stains?

Blood blisters or “hemangiomas” respond very well to Cutera Laser treatment, usually with just one session. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions who had given up on finding a solution have been overwhelmed by the success of their Cuteran

Do the treatments hurt?

Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. 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.

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 support hose for a short period of time.

How does this compare to Sclerotherapy?

Your doctor will advise you on the best course of action, but many physicians and patients prefer Cutera Laser Vein Therapy because there are no painful injections.

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 laser specialist at Ruba Bar Laser & Skin Care about your specific condition.

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. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your laser specialist at Ruba Bar Laser & Skin Care for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.

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 exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.

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 Laser.
