What is so special about the Cutera CoolGlide?
The Cutera CoolGlide combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to treat a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins safely yet effectively, in patients of all skin tones.
How does CoolGlide Vein Therapy work?
The Cutera CoolGlide system delivers pulses of laser light energy, which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel, which is later, reabsorbed by your body. The blood flow will then be redirected to deeper veins.
What types of veins can be treated?
The Cutera CoolGlide can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Anything ranging from the horrid small veins on the face (telangiectasias) to spider veins and large blue reticular veins in the legs, the CoolGlide can zap them all into oblivion.
How many treatments will I need?
Although individual results vary depending on the number, colour and size of vessels; often even one or two treatments are sufficient. Our doctors will customize the number of sessions that you will require.
What does the procedure feel like?
Patients may experience a slight stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand piece. However, no local anaesthesia or pain medication is typically required.
What about side effects?
There is no downtime with this procedure. You may notice some redness and swelling at the treatment site following your session which disappears within a few hours. You may resume your normal activities immediately following the treatment. As always, just limit sun exposure.
When will I see results?
Majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within 2-6 weeks of treatment. However, your final results will be apparent after a few months. Just when you thought there was no hope, a few weeks is all that stands between you and that clear, vessel-free look you have been dreaming of!
