Details for Case #12726
Enjoying the warm weather in Los Angeles seems so easy: just slip on a pair of shorts or don a cute short skirt, and you’re ready for the sun! Those with unattractive, bulging, or discolored veins, however, may feel uncomfortable in such revealing attire. This 63-year-old woman chose laser vein treatment on her lower legs to diminish her unsightly green and purple veins. The photo showing her improved appearance was taken 3 months after 1 treatment.
Our Los Angeles cosmetic surgery patients frequently select Cutera CoolGlide® laser treatments to effectively diminish their spider veins and varicose veins. We have a variety of options available, and each patient enjoys a private consultation with our skilled skin care consultant to help choose the ideal treatment plan for them. In addition to vein therapies, we offer a wide range of minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation options. Many patients decide to combine several varieties to achieve the results they want without surgery.
CoolGlide laser treatments deliver a precise energy dosage to each targeted vein. Your blood vessels absorb the light energy applications, with no impact to the surrounding tissue. This heat absorption causes the blood vessel to coagulate. Your body subsequently absorbs that coagulation.
Most of our patients experience minimal discomfort during the short treatment. In some cases, multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve the best results.
