Frequently Asked Questions:
What are the different types of veins that you treat?
The Cutera Excel Laser is highly effective in treating:
· Leg Veins – Spider (Telangiectasia) or thread veins, common on the legs. They can be pink, red or purple and are less than 1mm in diameter. Reticular veins are more bluish and are usually from 1mm to less than 3mm in diameter.
· Facial Veins – Spider veins or dilated surface veins, often found on the nose, chin and cheek area and commonly occurring in Rosacea. There is no one cause for spider veins but hormonal changes, sun exposure, oral contraceptives, aging and heredity are all contributing factors.

You may feel a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No anesthesia is required. Some patients opt for the use of a topical anesthetic for more sensitive areas.
