What is laser vein removal?
Now men and women alike are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past, thanks to Cutera Xeo laser vein removal. No more painful injections! With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the Xeo can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.
Why choose Xeo?
The Xeo 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 or blistering.
How does laser vein removal work?
The Xeo system 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.
Who can be treated with laser vein therapy?
The Xeo laser features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of patients of all skin tones. Your health care provider will advise you if laser vein therapy is right for you.
What types of veins can be treated?
The 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 doctor will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.
How does this compare to sclerotherapy (spider vein injections)?
Your doctor will advise you on the best course of action, but many physicians and patients prefer laser vein therapy because there are no painful injections.
What about “blood blisters”?
Blood blisters or “hemangiomas” respond very well to laser vein therapy, usually with just one treatment. Patients with vascular lesions who had given up on finding a solution have been overwhelmed by the success of their laser vascular treatments. Consult your doctor for a thorough evaluation.
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 handpiece. 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.
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 medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
Are there any restrictions on my activities 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 laser vein therapy.
Can you treat varicose veins?
No, patients with varicose veins will need to see a Vascular Surgeon and obtain a referral through their family doctor.
