Leg Vein Removal with the Precision of Cutera XEO Technology

We offer non-surgical treatment alternatives that can treat a wide array of skin and vein irregularities and conditions.

Why the legs?

The reason unwanted veins appear often on the legs is largely due to the pressure of your body weight, force of gravity, and the cumbersome task of carrying the blood from the legs to the heart. Unwanted veins are usually treated as cosmetic concerns, but it is common for spider and leg veins to cause the following medical problems:

  • Troublesome aches
  • Limb heaviness and lethargy
  • Itching
  • Cramps

Leg veins are most often found on:

  • The thighs
  • Backs of calves
  • Insides of the leg

Spider veins

Spider veins are small leg veins and start out as tiny capillaries, appearing as red or blue squiggles.

Spider veins can be red, blue or purple veins that commonly appear on:

  • Surface of the thighs
  • Calves
  • Ankles
  • Face

Spider Vein Causes:

  • Increasing age
  • Hormonal changes (occurring during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause)
  • Taking medications containing estrogen and progesterone can increase chances of developing spider veins
  • Genetic predisposition / Family history
  • Prolonged occupational standing or sitting
  • Obesity
  • Sun exposure

An estimated ⅓ of the adult female population lives with unwanted leg veins but we can help!

Cutera XEO Laser Technology

Cutera XEO represents the gold-standard in laser treatment. We can precisely target blood in the damaged blood vessel, causing it to coagulate and collapse. The body’s own biological process will repair surrounding areas and absorb the collapsed blood vessel naturally.

A cooling hand piece makes the process comfortable and safe. During your leg vein treatment, we’ll apply direct energy to the vein, collapsing and eliminating it. Bruising might occur in the treatment area and can last for a few weeks. Cutera XEO remains the optimum non-invasive treatment on the market for vascular lesions and blemishes.
