It is easy to forget that the body is filled with veins because they are often hard to see. Unfortunately, this all changes once there is an issue with your veins. It is fairly common for veins to get twisted and damaged over the years. This causes blood to get backed up as it’s delivered back to the heart, which results in an enlargement of the veins. These big veins quickly become an eyesore when they are visible through the skin. While this can happen anywhere, it most commonly occurs in the legs. For an ideal leg veins treatment, consider CUTERA Excel V!
What is CUTERA Excel V?
CUTERA Excel V is a non-invasive medical procedure that will help eliminate your unwanted leg veins using laser therapy. The laser used in this procedure is drawn to red and purple colors on the skin, which makes it the ideal solution to treating enlarged veins. The laser light energy causes the blood in the veins to clot. The body will then naturally destroy and eliminate the vein. Your blood will start to flow normally after this happens. Some popular laser therapy procedures are unable to effectively treat patients with dark or tanned skin, but that will not be an issue with CUTERA Excel V.
What to Expect During the Procedure
You will be escorted back to the exam room once you arrive for your appointment. A special gel is applied to the legs after they are cleaned. The CUTERA Excel V device will then be used to deliver laser energy to the treatment area. You will be asked to shield your eyes from the laser light while the device is activated. You will feel a slight snap on the skin when it is hit with the laser energy, but this should not cause any discomfort. The entire procedure will take no longer than one hour to complete.
What Happens After the Procedure?
You will be able to drive yourself home immediately after the leg veins treatment is over. It is highly recommended to avoid strenuous activity and soaking in hot water for at least one day after the treatment. You can expect to have some minor bruising and redness on your legs after leaving our treatment facility. Your skin should return to normal the following morning.
Most patients will need to undergo multiple CUTERA Excel V treatment sessions in order to completely remove their leg veins. These appointments will be scheduled weeks apart. The exact length of your treatment plan will be determined by the severity of your problem. You will start to notice positive results after the first treatment, but it will take several months for the ugly veins to completely disappear.
