Spider Veins Treatment
We treat 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 Thread Vein Removal work?
The laser 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 skins surface, where it should be.
Can anyone have the treatment done?
The Cutera Laser System features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of patients of all skin tones. Your therapist will advise you if Vein Therapy is right for you.
What types of veins can be treated?
We 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 purple leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. Our therapists are trained to the highest standards and will be able to advise you on your treatment during a free consultation.
How does this compare to Sclerotherapy?
We have found that we achieve excellent results with our laser system. We have the technology to work with a wide range of parameters allowing us to treat many different types of veins. Many of our clients have preferred the laser treatment as there are no painful injections involved.
How many treatments will I need?

Do the treatments hurt?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulse
