Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery utilizes the latest technology with a laser called the Cutera CoolGlide Nd: YAG. This type of treatment is ideal for the face and body can treat a broad range of visible blood vessels from tiny spider veins or “telangiectasias” to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively on all skin types. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions respond well to the Cutera CoolGlide Laser Vein Therapy, usually with just one treatment.
The Cutera CoolGlide laser delivers pulses of light energy, which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel, which is later absorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, just where it should be.
All parts of the body can be treated with the Cutera CoolGlide Laser. Both men and women can now seek treatments for the blood vessels on the thighs, lower legs, ankles, chest, nose, and face. Treatment is also effective for those with acne, rosacea, sun damage, broken capillaries, broken blood vessels, and more.
The unique design of the CoolGlide Laser coupled with the long wavelength allows people of all skin types and colors to have great results. Patients often find that 1-2 treatments are sufficient to see improvement in their veins. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. The majority of patients see significant improvement within 2-6 weeks of treatment. A fewer number of treatments are needed when the skin is light colored. We do not treat patients with fresh sunburned skin.
