Unwanted blemishes such as broken capillaries, veins, and birthmarks can give the skin a red flush that is often mistaken for a sunburn. But thanks to advances in laser technology, it is now possible to safely and effectively treat these types of vascular conditions without invasive surgery. Our practice offers the Excel V Laser by Cutera which combines a KTP laser with a high-powered Nd:Yag laser. This procedure is especially effective for facial veins, port wine stains and varicose or spider vein treatment.

Most skin redness is caused by either an increased number of blood vessels or blood vessels that are enlarged or dilated. Our laser is absorbed by the red color of the blood vessels and is converted to heat, sealing off the tiny vessels in the most superficial part of the skin. Like other lasers, the Excel V and Icon can be used with very minimal risk of complications – making it an ideal treatment for people of all ages.
Laser Vein Treatment is a minimally-invasive procedure that takes only 15-20 minutes to perform. Most patients are immediately able to go back to their regular routine with little downtime. Several treatments of the same area may be required for maximum fading. These treatments are generally spaced in 4 – 6 week intervals.
Laser vein treatment is a safe and affordable option for individuals who are struggling with vascular disorders like unsightly blood vessels and veins. This laser can also remove other types of unwanted pigment, such as brown spots, and freckles.
