If you have veins that show and feel self conscious about your legs or avoid wearing shorts, skirts or bathing suits to hide your legs, you may be a candidate for Cutera Excel Vein Therapy.
Now men and women alike are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past, thanks to the Cutera Excel. No more painful injections! With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the Cutera Excel can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.
The Cutera Excel systems deliver 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 skin's surface, where it should be.
Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
