At Our Gold Coast and Brisbane Clinics
There are a lot of factors that can affect the appearance of our skin. This can include the environment and sun damage, as well as getting older. In addition, as the years go by, the body’s natural collagen production decreases. This means that the skin has to work harder to repair itself. This can lead to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, angiomas and spider veins can form underneath the skin. Cutera laser vein therapy is an innovative treatment that can target a range of vessels underneath the skin. The lasers can be effective in targeting small spider veins to deep blue reticular veins, destroying the blood that is causing them to show on the skin surface. This treatment is suitable for men and women with all skin tones.
Before arranging a time and date for laser vein therapy, the patient will attend a consultation. This will take place with a professional in one of our cosmetic clinics to discuss the procedure. The veins to be treated will also be examined. This is the best time to ask any questions about the vessel treatment. A patch test will be carried out on the patient before receiving treatment. This is for safety reasons and to make sure that the procedure is suitable for the patient’s skin tone and veins.
During the consultation, the professional will be able to recommend how many vein therapy treatment sessions are needed. While one or two sessions are common, the number for every patient will vary. This will depend on individual factors, such as the number of veins being treated, as well as their colour and size.
The Vein Therapy Procedure
Cutera laser vein therapy uses a specialised ND-Yag laser to target vessels. This uses pulses light energy to treat the deeper tissues underneath the patient’s skin and pinpoint long vascular structures. This laser treatment is believed to be more effective that other procedures out there for targeting harder vessels. The laser light energy destroys the blood forming the vein, so it is reabsorbed by the body.
Patients can experience a stinging sensation during the treatment. While this may cause mild discomfort, no anaesthetic will be needed. It is common to experience some redness of the skin and bruising immediately after the vein therapy procedure. This will normally fade within 24 hours of treatment. There is no downtime associated with vein therapy, which means patients are free to leave the clinic and return to their normal activities. Yet, it is recommended that patients avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
Many patients from Brisbane & Gold Coast have achieved good results with Cutera laser vein therapy. The treatment has decreased the appearance of veins and small angiomas. The diminishing of small veins can be seen immediately after the procedure. The full results for larger and dark veins may take a few weeks to be realised.
It is important to realise that results from Cutera laser vein therapy are individual. You will be able to gain a better idea of how this treatment can work for you during a patient consultation.
