Enhance and Grow Your Practice
with the CoolTouch CTEVTM Laser
Fifty to fifty-five percent of women and forty to forty-five percent of men have
venous disease. Fifty percent of those seek treatment for cosmetic purposes alone.
Many, who historically avoided treatment due to the pain associated with surgery
or sclerotherapy, may now seek treatment when offered a virtually pain free, successful
and cosmetically pleasing alternative. The CoolTouch CTEV laser provides a comprehensive
program to help you build your practice by capturing and serving this vast patient

Laser Treatment for Varicose Veins
The Preferred Technology
The CTEV provides an ideal treatment for endovenous ablation of varicose veins.
The 1320 nm wavelength targets water in the vessel wall, not hemoglobin, which means
a much more comfortable procedure for patients without post-op bruising or swelling.
Traditionally, varicose veins have been treated in several different ways. The most
widely performed treatment has been to surgically strip and ligate the affected
veins. Vein stripping can require hospitalization, is often very painful and frequently
does not fully solve the problem, requiring additional treatments. Not to mention,
surgical procedures can carry a higher risk of complications and can require significant
Radiofrequency (RF) heating and sclerotherapy are alternate therapies for the treatment
of large vein insufficiencies. The RF technique can be difficult to learn and is
very expensive to perform. Large vein sclerotherapy is associated with vein recurrence
and thrombophlebitis, and the sclerosant agents used can cause allergic reactions,
pain or discoloration of surface tissues.
Fact: Laser therapy has demonstrated excellent clinical results and outstanding
patient satisfaction compared to alternate therapies.
Laser technology offers a non-surgical, highly successful and cost-effective alternative
to stripping, RF and sclerotherapy. This patient-friendly treatment is performed
on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. Patients experience very little or
no pain and are able to return to normal activity very quickly. Since the laser
actually destroys the whole lining of the vein, the opportunity for new collateral
veins to grow is greatly minimized, resulting in varicose veins reappearing in only
about 4% of laser-treated cases. With stripping plus sclerotherapy, varicose veins
reappear in about 30% of the cases and for sclerotherapy alone the recurrence rate
is more than 70%.
The CoolTouch CTEVTM Advantage
The CoolTouch CTEV offers several key features that make it the best choice for
endovenous laser treatment.
1320 Wavelength Targets water in the vessel wall
Advantage: The CoolTouch 1320 nm laser is able to produce similar
efficacy to Diode lasers with far less risk and side effects, such as paraestheisa,
increased brusiing, patient discomfort during and immediately following treatment
and thermal injury to the overlying skin, when used for endovenous coagulation of
blood vessels in patients with superficial vein reflux.
The Facts: The CoolTouch CTEV is a 1320 nm Nd:YAG laser with an
absorption length of 300- 500 microns (0.3 - 0.5mm) in tissue. The chromophore for
this laser is water (collagen is primarily water), resulting in a shorter absorption
length than Diode lasers. Specific absorption of energy only in the vein wall results
in a more controlled depth of vein coagulation than any other wavelength.
High treatment success rate
Advantage: The CoolTouch CTEV will allow you to confidently offer
your patients a solution that has less pain, a quicker recovery period and better
clinical and cosmetic results than other treatments available today.
The Facts: The CoolTouch CTEV offers patients a signficantly more
comfortable and convenient solution for endoluminal varicose vein treatment. With
the CoolTouch CTEV, patients experience little, if any, pain, bruising and swelling,
and their recovery period is extremely fast with virtually no downtime. The CTEV
has been very successful in obtaining closure of varicose veins with only one treatment
in over 95% of patients treated.
Automated Fiber Pull Back Device
Exclusive automated fiber pull-back device
Advantage: CoolTouch's pull-back device controls the rate of fiber
movement along the vein wall providing consistent exposure and minimizing treatment
The Facts The CoolTouch CTEV is the only laser technology on the
market that offers an automated fiber pull-back device providing more control and
Multiple fiber sizes offer a complete vein treatment solution.
Advantage: The CoolTouch CTEV versatility allows it to be used
for more endovenous procedures resulting in a greater return on your investment.
The Facts: The CoolTouch CTEV offers the broadest range of fiber
sizes allowing you to treat wide variety of vein diameters, from the great and small
saphenous veins to future applications including incompetent accessory veins.
The 1320 nm Nd:YAG laser has a proven history of extremely reliable performance.
Advantage: With the CoolTouch CTEV 1320 nm laser, you will experience
consistent optimal performance resulting in more uptime, reduced breakdowns and
less service-related costs.
The Facts: The CoolTouch CTEV is the first endovenous solution
on the market utilizing the mid-infrared 1320 nm wavelength. This solid-state laser
is an established leader in scientific and medical applications and has a 20-year
track record of exceptional performance. This technology is available for endovenous
use through the CoolTouch CTEV.
CoolTouch proprietary fibers reduce costs and increase revenues.
Advantage:The CoolTouch CTEV fibers will save you thousands of
dollars every year in disposable costs, procedural and staff time, and will help
you to increase revenue by retaining more patient cases.
The Facts The CoolTouch CTEV is the only endovenous laser that
provides reusable fibers that can be used for up to 5 treatments with sterilization.
In addition, CoolTouch offers and exclusive, sterile disposable fiber featuring
a specially designed tip that simplifies the procedure, minimizes the use of accessories
and allows you to treat a wider range of patient conditions.
