Dr. Wright uses the Cutera laser to treat spider veins and benign vascular lesions, such as hemangiomas and venous lakes.
Venous lakes are purple lesions that often appear in the lips or on the face in sun exposed areas. Hemangiomas are those red raised lesions that look like red moles.
The Nd:YAG 1064 application of the Xeo laser can treat these conditions non-invasively without scars and without downtime. This same application is great for treating spider veins and broken capillaries.
Veins on the body or face may be treated, with treatment on the legs being the most common.
