Treatment of Venous Lakes
Venous lakes are treated with our Cutera® ExcelV™ laser. The Nd:YAG laser energy targets the enlarged vein, cauterizing that tissue. A small, hard lump may be felt for the next couple weeks as the body breaks down the cauterized tissue. Small venous lakes usually respond well after a single treatment. For larger, deeper venous lakes more than one session may be needed. Results are typically seen in 4-6 weeks once healing is completed.
Insurance carriers consider venous lakes cosmetic. We offer no-obligation consultations to see if treatment of your venous lakes may be a good option for you.
