Cutera’s advanced technology combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system.

The Cutera combines the ideal laser wavelength (1064nm Nd-Yag) with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular treatment. Cutera treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins, quickly, safely and effectively. Patients with dark, light or tanned skin achieve great results. It is also suitable for port wine stains, birth marks, haemangioma, red dots and other vascular lesions.

One to three treatments are usually sufficient; however the number of treatments depends on the quantity, colour and size of the vessels being treated. Clients may experience a stinging sensation as pulses of energy are delivered which causes blood within the vein to coagulate, destroying the vessel, which is then reabsorbed by your body.

Following treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. With larger vessels, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months. In rare instances, blistering may occur but thanks to the coolguide cooling system this risk is very small.

Clients find that the majority of veins show significant improvement after two to six weeks depending on vein size and type, but reabsorption may take several months. It is recommended vigorous activity be avoided for at least 24 hours and a sunscreen used on all treated areas exposed to the sun.
