Laser Vein Treatments


The Cutera Laser treats a broad range of vascular skin conditions and pigmentations from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins. Laser treatments offer a quick, safe and highly effective solution to reduce the appearance of veins and pigmentation and restore skin to its natural tone.


  • Treatment Duration: 15 to 60 MINUTES
  • Discomfort Level: 1-3
  • Downtime: NONE

        The Details

        How it Works

        The Cutera Laser 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.

        Treatment Preparation

        Avoid sun tanning or self-tanners for 4 weeks prior to treatment. This includes spray tans, tanning lotions and tanning beds.

        Some medications or supplements may increase the risk of bruising. Please consult with your physician for further information and specific instructions regarding your medications.

        Avoid treatments that may irritate the skin for 1 to 2 weeks prior to treatment (waxing, depilatories, etc.).

        Notify clinic with any changes to your health or medication since your last appointment. 

        History of herpes or cold sores may require an anti-viral prescription prior to treatment.

        Most patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to the treatment. During the treatment, a cooling gel is applied to the treatment area before the laser is glided over. Clients wear protective eyewear during the procedure to protect them from exposure to the laser.

        Areas that can be Treated

        The Cutera 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 veins can also be treated with excellent results.

        Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. A careful evaluation with your physician will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.

        What it Feels Like

        Your physician will apply a cooling gel to the treatment area before using the laser. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment.

        While most patients describe the treatments as relaxing, some may experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand-piece.

        Protective eyewear must be worn at all times and your mouth must remain closed to avoid potential teeth and eye damage from exposure to the laser.

        Expected Results

        Most patients find that the majority of treated veins show significant improvement within 2 to 6 weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months.

        Regular treatments will help to maintain results.

        Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with the Cutera Laser.

        Number of Treatments

        For optimal results, a course of 1 to 3 treatments (spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart) is typically recommended. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color and size of the vessels being treated.

        After Care


        Avoid sun exposure and use a broad spectrum sunscreen to prevent further sun damage.

        Following your treatment, some bruising, redness and swelling may occur and will resolve with time.

        A “bug bite” look is common and usually resolves within 1 to 2 days.

         Avoid heat (hot tubs, saunas, etc.) for 1 to 2 days after treatment.

        Avoid skin irritants (products containing tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, astringents, etc.) for a few days post-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.

        Clients who received leg vein treatments only:

        • A compression or support stocking (20 to 30 mm/hg) may be advised
        • Avoid high impact activity for 3 to 4 days
        • Hemosiderin staining (brown staining) may occur after treatment and usually resolves with time (1 to 2 years) but, on a rare occasion, may be permanent. Strict avoidance of sun exposure may decrease risk of permanent hemosiderin staining.
        • Large leg veins may take months to resolve and should not be re-treated before then.

         Your physician will provide specific instructions tailored to each client depending on the type of procedure that was performed.  Please notify your clinician of any concerns.

        Follow Up

        Depending on the location and severity of the area being treated, you may require additional follow-up appointments and/or treatments.

        Most treatments are administered as a course of treatments (1 to 3) and spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

        Is this Suitable for Me?


        • Anyone with unwanted, noticeable veins


        • Pregnant
        • You have an active sunburn
        • Presence of any lesions or known skin cancer in the treatment area
        • Metal implants in the treatment area
        • Wounds or significant irritation/rashes are present in the treatment area
        • Vitiligo
        • Diabetic
        • Tattoos on the treatment area

        Side Effects, Risks & Complications

        Although most clients report few (if any) side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These typically last for less than 24 hours.

         Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur.

         Please consult your physician for complete information about the risks of treatment.

        The Laser Vein Treatment Difference

        The Cutera Laser for vein treatment is often preferred over Sclerotherapy because there are no painful injections.
