Varicose Veins Albuquerque & Santa Fe

Are you bothered by bulging, discolored veins? Although common, varicose veins often signal a deeper problem deep within your venous system. To restore healthy blood flow, Dr. Robert Cutchen treats varicose veins and their underlying causes right in the comfort and convenience of his Albuquerque vein clinic. Most of these minimally invasive treatments involve minimal to no recovery time. 

What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins occur when normal blood flow becomes stagnant. Veins must work against gravity to return blood to the heart, so they have one-way valves to keep blood from flowing backward. When these valves become damaged, blood can back up into the superficial veins near the surface of the skin. This pooled blood causes the thick, discolored appearance of varicose veins. 

Lymphedema Santa Fe

The lymphatic system transports fluid throughout the body, filters it in the lymph nodes, and returns the fluid back to the circulatory system. Lymphedema occurs when lymphatic fluid cannot drain properly, usually out of an arm or leg. The collection of fluid causes the symptoms of the condition, including swelling, heaviness, and skin changes. 

What is Lymphedema?

The lymphatic system plays a key role in our immune system and circulatory system, but when it runs into trouble, lymphedema can result. Lymphedema occurs when the lymphatic fluid has stopped draining out of an area properly. This causes the tissues in the area to swell with fluid. The swelling often bothers people the most since it can be very visible and restrict normal motion. In some cases where Lymphedema occurs as a result of chronic venous insufficiency or other venous problems, the lymphedema should respond to endovenous laser ablation. 

Dermal Fillers Santa Fe

Have your facial features started to lose volume? Dermal fillers can restore lost fullness or add volume to enhance features like the lips. Dermal fillers can improve lines and wrinkles almost anywhere on the face and give your face back its youthful-looking contours. 

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers add volume to regions of the face to lift lines and wrinkles or restore lost volume in areas like the cheeks. At Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, we offer the Restylane® family of dermal fillers. This collection has fillers with different viscosities to let them work in almost any facial area. 

Acne Scars Santa Fe

Most of us have had some experience with acne. Some people outgrow it after puberty, while it lasts well into adulthood for others. Breakouts may come and go, but the acne scars left behind can leave an unpleasant reminder. Over time, acne scars can make skin look uneven and rough. 

Laser Hair Removal Albuquerque & Santa Fe

How much time and money do you spend every year on hair removal? Whether you wax, shave, epilate, or pluck, hair removal time or costs add up. While laser hair removal is much more expensive than a single waxing service, it is much more cost-effective over time
