CoolTouch Varia Laser FAQ

How does CoolTouch Varia work?

The 1064 nm CoolTouch Varia laser2 is a long pulse Nd: YAG Laser whose energy penetrates deep into the targeted vein. As the blood vessels absorb the energy, they get coagulated, and the veins slowly fade and disappear. During this process, they are reabsorbed by the body. In most cases, the desired results are already achieved with one treatment. When there is a larger area involved with various facial veins it may be necessary to schedule a series of laser treatments.

What to do before the CoolTouch laser?

Before undergoing a CoolTouch laser treatment, it is important to take certain precautions to ensure a safe and effective procedure. Here are some tips on what to do before a CoolTouch laser treatment:

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning: Schedule your treatment for the fall or winter or avoid all forms of tanning (i.e., tanning from the natural sun, tanning beds, spray tans, and self-tanning products) for six weeks before your treatment.
  • Avoid deep-peel treatments: Avoid any deep-peel treatments for four weeks before your laser appointment, as they can affect the skin’s sensitivity.
  • Avoid blood thinners: To avoid bruising, don’t take aspirin, NSAIDs, or any other medication that can thin the blood, if possible.
  • Consult with Dr. Rokhsar: Consult with Dr. Rokhsar to ensure that you are a good candidate for the CoolTouch laser treatment and discuss any concerns you may have.
  • Be aware of the treatment area: The CoolTouch laser treatment can be performed on any facial areas, around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, chin, and the neck. A topical anesthetic cream can be used on extra sensitive areas, so no injections are needed.
  • The cooltouch varia laser is a great laser for the treatment of under eye blue and green veins and blood vessels. Typically one or 2 sessions eradicates these blood vessels it uses an NdYag laser to heat up the blue and green vessels selectively eradicating them.

By following these guidelines, you can help ensure that your CoolTouch laser treatment is as safe and effective as possible. As always, consult with your doctor before undergoing any medical procedure.
