Esteem Medi Spa’s Cutera Laser Vein Therapy treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely and effectively across a range of skin tones and types. The ND-Yag Laser is a specialised vascular laser used to treat the deeper tissues and longer vascular structures that other lasers fail to reach. It is most effective for the face and body to remedy spider veins, small angiomas and Neovascularization (the area surrounding scars).
The treatment delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate and destroy the vessel whereby it is later reabsorbed by your body. Generally you may require one or two treatments however the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, colour and size of the vessels being treated. Nd-Yag can be used on the face, temporal region, nasal dorsum and forehead as well as on the body and legs.
During the treatment, you may experience a stinging sensation as the pulses are delivered and post treatment some redness and bruising may occur. It is advisable to avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24hrs after treatment.
Please note that for your safety, a patch test is required on a separate day before treatment can commence.
