Vascular Applications
for Veins and Redness

The Sciton® Clear Scan laser uses infrared energy to treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions and skin discoloration. Unwanted vessels will be preferentially heated and become less noticeable. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and legs. There’s virtually no downtime and no lasting post-treatment discomfort. Often, multiple treatments may be necessary for the desired result.

Who Can be Treated?

  • All patients on all body areas
  • All skin colors (skin types I-VI)
  • Tanned patients

What Conditions Can be Treated?

  • Face or leg veins
  • Spider veins
  • Telangiectasia (widened blood vessels)
  • Redness
  • Broken capillaries

From birthmarks to spider veins, vascular lesions take many forms all over the body — from cherry angiomas and port wine stains to spider veins and birthmarks.

Port wine stains often occur at birth, while cherry angiomas and spider veins appear later in life. Vascular lesions rarely go away on their own, which is why many patients seek safe, professional treatment options.

These vascular anomalies can appear anywhere on the body, particularly on the neck, upper trunk, arms and legs. They are benign but often cause self-consciousness.

Frequently Asked Questions

ClearV uses a special laser to address veins, vessels and rosacea below the skin’s surface.

Using yellow and orange lights, the LEDs around the sapphire plate illuminate unwanted vessels to allow precise targeting and treatment. Laser pulses are absorbed by the unwanted vessels, closing them and preventing them from returning. The vessels are then eliminated naturally by the body over time. ClearV is appropriate for all skin types (Fitzpatrick I – VI). Patients have no downtime and may resume daily activities immediately following treatment.

Before treatment, you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizer and, if needed, shave the area to be treated. Anesthetic cream or ice is not needed. 

Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. The ClearV handpiece will deliver precise laser energy to the area being treated. You may feel a brief warm or hot sensation as laser pulses are absorbed by the unwanted vessels. The ClearV procedure may take 5-30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.

After a ClearV treatment, the unwanted visible microvessels and resistant subsurface vessels fade over time, becoming less noticeable. Broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions and more are gently eliminated.
