No more painful injections! With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, CoolGlide© laser systems can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial facial.

For women & men of all skin tones and types

The CoolGlide© difference

CoolGlide asthetic systems combine the ideal laser wavelegth with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. They treat a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safety, and effectively. Patients with dark, light or tanned skin can experience outstanding results with minimal bruising or blistering.

How does CoolGlide© Vein Therapy work?

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.

Who can be treated with CoolGlide© systems?

CoolGlide laser systems feature a unique design and long wavelength that allow them to treat patients of all skin tones. Your physician will advise you if CoolGlide Vein Therapy is right for you.

What types of veins can be treated?

CoolGlide systems can remove unsightly vein 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. A careful evaluation with your physician will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.

How does this compare to Sclerotherapy?

Your doctor will advise you on the best course of action, but many physicians and patients prefer CoolGlide Vein Therapy because there are no painful injections.

What about blood blisters and port wine stains?

Blood blisters or "hemangiomas" repond very well to CoolGlide Vein Therapy, usually with just one treatment. 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 CoolGlide vascular treatments. Consult your physician for a thorough evalution.

How many treatments do I need?

Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the numer of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific conditions.

Do the treatments hurt?

Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

What happens after the treatment?

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.

What are the possible side effects?

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. Counsult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?

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 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.

When will I see results?

Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown 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 removed with the CoolGlide laser system.

A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal, which is equivalent to running 2–3 miles..
