IPL Facial Vein Removal and Sun Spots

The Cutera AcuTip delivers light energy safely and effectively to treat individual sun spots and facial veins. The cooled tip is ideally sized for tracing small vessels on the nose, cheek, chin, and other areas of the face. It can just as easily be used to remove sun or age spots often found on the face, chest and hands.


What types of facial veins and other vessels can be treated?

The Cutera AcuTip can remove bothersome small, facial veins quickly without bruising or complication. Cherry angiomas found on all parts of the body also respond very well to AcuTip vein therapy, usually with just one treatment.

What areas can be treated fo sun spot removal?

Virtually any part of your body with sun and age spots or freckles can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulder, and arms are the most popular areas for treatment because they typically have the most sun exposure.

How many treatments will I need?

Typically one or two treatments are sufficient to see results for either sun spots or facial vein. Additional treatments may be required for very dark sports or where there are many unwanted facial veins.

Can all of my spots or unwanted veins be treated this way?

Not all lesions and veins can be removed with the AcuTip. Raised moles, birthmarks or non pigmented lesions cannot be treated.

Superficial veins on the legs are not effectively treated either.

Is there any downtime with this procedure?

Treated skin will look have a bug bite look appearance for a couple of hours after treatment. Pigmented spots will turner darker and exfoliate off the face in 7-10 days and off the body in approximately 2-3 weeks. Sun protection is highly recommended.
