Coolglide aesthetic systems combine the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. It is able to treat a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins and in a very quick, safe and effective manner. If a patient has more pigmented or “darker” skin, lighter or tanned skin, they can experience outstanding results with minimal bruising or blistering.
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.
Coolglide systems can remove 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 dialated veins can also be treated with Coolglide and can result in excellent results. Though many different problem veins and vessels are awesome candidates for Coolglide, knotty varicose veins or “bag of worms” are not good candidates for this treatment.
Blood blisters or “hemangiomas” respond well to Coolglide Vein Therapy, usually with just one or two treatments. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions that have given up on finding a solution have been overwhelmed by the success of their CoolGlide vascular treatments.
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 are advised to wear medical grade compression hose for 1 week following treatment.
