The CoolGlide Xeo laser combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively. Patients with dark, light or tanned skin can experience outstanding results with minimal bruising or blistering. Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient.
The CoolGlide system 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. Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece.
Blood blisters or “hemangiomas” respond very well to CoolGlide Vein Therapy. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions 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 generally resume most normal activities immediately. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment.
