The CoolGlide aesthetic system will remove tiny spider veins very quickly, safely, and effectively. 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. It can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small facial veins can be treated quickly without bruising. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions who had given up on finding a solution have been very pleased with this treatment.
Usually, it takes one or two treatments. The number depends on the amount, color, and size of the vessels. We use a topical deadening on the area where the veins are, because there is a slight stinging sensation when the procedure is done. Patients can resume normal activity immediately.
