Facial rejuvenation once required patients to undergo dermabrasion and similar treatments. While many people benefit from these procedures, they aren't right for everyone. Fortunately, with the advent of new laser therapies, skin treatments can be accomplished with nothing more than focused bursts of light. From wrinkles and spider veins to blemishes and scars, lasers have literally changed the face of cosmetic therapy.

Coolglide lasers can also address the appearance of superficial, red facial veins without the need for an injection.
