Cutera Vascular Laser
The Cutera Excel HR laser is a versatile device that can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including spider veins and reticular veins. The 1064nm wavelength of the laser is specifically designed to target hemoglobin, the protein that gives blood its red color. When the laser energy is absorbed by hemoglobin, it causes the blood vessels to coagulate and collapse. This process destroys the unwanted veins and allows the treated area to heal naturally
The Cutera Excel HR laser is also a safe and comfortable treatment option. The laser is FDA-approved for the treatment of veins, and it has been used successfully by dermatologists and aesthetic practitioners around the world.
