New Mexico’s Leading Vein Treatment Center

Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute quickly established itself as one of New Mexico’s leading vein treatment centers, providing our patients with the most complete diagnosis and treatment of vein disease in the area. Over the years, Dr. Cutchen’s reputation as a leading vein treatment specialist has grown, with patients not only traveling to Dr. Cutchen from the entire state of New Mexico but also from throughout the southwestern United States and beyond. Dr. Cutchen and our experienced staff provide our patients with the highest quality of medical care and patient experience in a beautiful office setting. The vein treatment professionals at Albuquerque Vein & Laser provide the most comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for all symptoms of vein disease, including pesky spider veins, bulging, painful varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, venous stasis ulcers, and more.

Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute has achieved the highest level of vein center accreditation available in the U.S., having been granted accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) – being accredited in “Vascular Testing” and “Vein Center in the area of Superficial Venous Treatment and Management.” This means that Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute has voluntarily undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts and is in compliance with stringent national standards. Read more about what our Vein Center Accreditation means to Albuquerque vein patients.

Expansion into Cosmetic Laser Treatments

Over the years, Dr. Cutchen has been very interested in expanding his medical practice into the area of aesthetic medicine, and he worked to find the right laser platform and aesthetic nurse. He realized that he was onto something when he discovered the Harmony® XL Pro laser and the Opus™ Plasma system by Alma Lasers, as the treatments are highly effective and most of them are virtually painless. 

Dr. Cutchen loves the Harmony® XL Pro laser platform’s tremendous versatility and effectiveness. Aesthetic patients are seeing amazing results with the laser hair removal, tattoo removal,

photofacial, and non-ablative facial rejuvenation treatments after experiences with other lasers that produced very few results with too much pain and discomfort. Dr. Cutchen was also the first New Mexico practice to offer the Opus™ Plasma treatment, which provides a deeper ablative skin resurfacing treatment by causing micro-perforations to the skin using plasma, leading to skin remodeling and collagen production. The result is tighter, fuller skin with diminished pore size and a more even skin color with minimal downtime. Although results are noticeable after the first treatment, the best results occur after three treatments over about three months. Alma’s Accent Prime device is allowing us to perform non-invasive body contouring. Ultrasound technology breaks up stubborn fat and radiofrequency energy tightens skin to do away with stubborn belly fat, love handles, thigh cellulite and much more.
