Spider veins and blood vessel telangiectasia are most frequently seen on the nose, cheeks, chin, and legs. They are often successfully treated by Vbeam laser and pulse light modalities. Cherry angiomas are small red raised lesions on the torso and extremities. Vbeam laser can successfully vaporize these lesions, with excellent cosmetic results.
Cutera CoolGlide medical lasers provide a safe, effective, non-invasive alternative to traditional treatments of unsightly spider veins that can occur on the face or legs. By emitting precise, brief pulses of light energy to the affected areas, this laser treatment avoids the surrounding tissues and heats the target blood vessels, causing the coagulation and destruction of the blood vessel, which is later reabsorbed by the body.
Spider veins (telangiectasias) are the small red, blue, or purple veins, most commonly occurring on the face and thighs. Patients of all skin tones can experience excellent results with CoolGlide in the elimination of these unsightly veins. Patients will need to consult with their physicians determine the best course of treatment.
Treatments and Procedure
The frequency of treatments will depend on number, color, depth, and size of the vessels that need to be treated, but most patients experience desired results after one or two treatments. The procedure causes little discomfort and requires no anesthetic. As the pulsation of laser energy is delivered by the handpiece along the length of each vessel, patients often experience a mild burning or stinging sensation which quickly fades after the procedure.
Spider veins can be treated quickly without bruising or complications. Occasionally, redness or slight swelling may occur but will fade within 24 hours. Patients are usually advised to avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours following a procedure and to protect the treated areas by avoiding direct sunlight and using sunscreen, but otherwise, most patients can resume normal activities immediately following a procedure.
Most patients observe significant improvement in the treated veins within two to six weeks of the treatment. While new veins may possibly appear over time, these can also be removed with CoolGlide treatments.

I have been a patient of Dr.Jacobs for over 20 years,,Over that time period he has discovered, treated, and has removed several skin cancers from me. I can clearly state that if it weren’t for him I probably would not be alive today..His staff has always been the most professional and his clinical environment is always immaculate. I would recommend anyone with dermatological issues from psoriasis to melanoma to consult with Dr. Michael Jacobs.

I had the best experience with Dr. Jacobs. Went to see two doctors who misdiagnosed a rash I had on my ankle. Dr. Jacobs identified it within seconds, prescribed a medication and it started to clear up two days later. The staff is wonderful and I would go back anytime.

For over 30 years, Dr. Jacobs has treated me. He is cordial, friendly and listens. Most recently, I had a severe case of bedbug bites that I got in Portugal. Literally within minutes of texting him with photos, he corrected the diagnosis I'd been given at a local hospital clinic and told me the medicines I needed. While I saw two doctors in Europe, it was Dr. Jacobs who helped me control my anxiety. For over three weeks, he communicated frequently with me - reconfirming what I was doing was correct and reassuring me the bites would get better, Dr. Jacobs is my go to! He is thoughtful, direct and clear in conveying his diagnosis. I am grateful to him for his care and appreciate all he has done for me over the years.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jacob's for over a year and although I went for one procedure, I kept coming due to their outstanding and attentive service. Their facility is very clean and the staff is very professional. Their equipment is top of the line. I've had hair removal and lasers done that was totally painless. I highly recommend this facility.
Too Modest to Publicize Himself

The wonderful work the Doctor did restoring a freshness to my face and neck was enough to convince 5 women pictured in The Social Register to make appointments of their own. Whether socially, for a polished image at work, or for health and wellness to take personal care seriously, this is the doctor to visit. NOT one who sells her services on TV talk shows. This office is not a Botox factory assembly line. When comparing notes, we women agreed that each was treated uniquely as specialized treatments were matched with care and a sure sense of what would be pleasing and successful with each patient. May I note as well that there are quite a number of men in the office seeking treatment as well!. This is a board certified physician who teaches his skills at Cornell. It goes without saying that his professional demeanor causes a patient to trust his judgement.
