Now men and women alike are making unsightly vascular lesions on the face and body a thing of the past. Sclerotherapy is no longer the only option…which means no more painful injections! We offer a safe and effective vascular treatment for superficial face veins and deeper reticular veins while treating all skin types and tones*

Advancements in laser vein therapy technology

Offering a comfortable experience, a quicker in-and-out time, and even better results*.

At ImageWorks Skin & Laser in Calgary, we use the Cutera Xeo Vascular Laser. Its distinctive wavelength and pulse duration offers successful results for reduction of unsightly spider veins and varicose veins. The wavelength of the laser offers strong absorption in oxyhemoglobin resulting in selective heating of veins for excellent vein reduction results.

While you’re undergoing vein therapy treatment, the powerful contact cooling of the laser makes treatments more comfortable*, but also makes it accessible and safe for all skin types, including tanned skin.

The sensation of the laser feels like a slight pinch or a hot spot. Anesthetic creams can be used to numb the area before treatment too. At first, the veins may appear to darken or turn grey, but within the first week, the lesions will start to fade. It’s important to know that these vein therapy treatments stop varicose and spider veins in their tracks, but aren’t a preventative measure to keep new ones from surfacing.

Often, patients find that one or two vein reduction or varicose vein treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated, as well as the age of the patient. Since individual results vary, we recommend that you call us to schedule a consultation to discuss your specific condition.
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand piece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients choose to use a topical anesthetic prior to their vein reduction treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent*.
Following your treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. When larger veins are treated, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months following treatment. Patients who have leg vein treatments may be advised to wear support hose for a short period of time.
Although many patients 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.
Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately. However, it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after vein reduction treatment. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.
Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins show 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 reduced with the Cutera Laser.
The Cutera Laser delivers pulses of light energy which causes 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.
The Cutera Laser features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of patients of all skin tones.
The Cutera Laser can reduce unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small, facial veins (or “telangiectasia”) can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results*. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates.
Many physicians and patients prefer Cutera Laser Vein Therapy because there are no painful injections*.
Blood blisters or “hemangiomas” respond very well to Cutera Laser treatment, usually with just one session. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions who had given up on finding a solution have been overwhelmed by the success of their Cutera Laser vascular treatments.
