Cutera CoolGlide and Excel V™ Laser Vein Removal Systems

We use the Cutera CoolGlide and Excel V™ laser vein removal systems in our Bloomfield, Connecticut practice for surface vein removal because they combine multiple laser wavelengths with the most flexible parameters. These lasers allow us to treat a broad range of vessels, from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins, on all skin tones. We also treat facial telangiectasia, periorbital veins, port wine stains, cherry angiomas and hemangiomas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Pulses of light energy are delivered which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by the body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below the skin’s surface where it belongs.

We can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small facial veins (“telangiectasia”) can be treated quickly without bruising. Spider veins and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins, however, are not good candidates. We will determine which vessels can be effectively treated during your consultation.

There are no painful injections involved. CoolGlide and Excel V™ laser vein removal therapy is completely light-based and thus non-invasive.

Blood blisters (“hemangiomas”) respond very well to CoolGlide and Excel V™ laser vein removal therapy usually with just one treatment*. Port wine stains and other vascular lesions can be effectively treated as well. In fact, many patients who had given up on finding a solution to these conditions have found success with these treatments.

The number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color and size of the vessels to be treated. Typically, 1 to 3 treatments per area are required to achieve desired results*. We will determine the appropriate number of treatments during your consultation.

Although many patients report few if any side effects after a laser vein removal treatment, those most commonly noticed are a slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering.

Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately, although we recommend avoiding vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. The use of sunscreen is recommended on all treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.

Most patients find that the majority of treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. Ultimate results, however, may not be apparent for several months. Over time, of course, it is possible for new veins to appear which we can treat if desired.

Our pricing is very competitive, and we offer complimentary consultations with one of our medical providers. We also offer convenient monthly payment plans through CareCredit. For specific pricing information, view our price list.
