Laser Vein Removal in Santa Barbara

CoolGlide® Vein Therapy For The Face & Body

Now men and women alike are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past, thanks to the CoolGlide. With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the CoolGlide can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.

The CoolGlide Difference

The CoolGlide combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively. Clients with dark, light or tanned skin can experience outstanding results with minimal bruising or blistering.

How does CoolGlide Vein Therapy work?

The CoolGlide 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.

How many treatments will I need?

Often, clients find that two to three 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 clinician about your specific condition.

Do the treatments hurt?

Most clients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, some clients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

What are the possible side effects?

Although many clients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your clinician for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

When will I see results?

Most clients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with the CoolGlide.
