Sciton’s ClearScan provides the best-in-class laser and light source solutions for the treatment of varicose veins, spider veins, broken capillaries and skin discoloration. Damage caused by wind, sunburn, temperature changes, and even the pressure of glasses on parts of your face can cause broken capillaries and skin discoloration. Broken capillaries, spider veins and varicose veins can also be caused by genetics.
The Sciton ClearScan provides a treatment that is optimized to your skin condition. Unwanted vessels will be preferentially heated by the laser’s energy and become less noticeable. Typically, the skin around the face is more susceptible to damage than the rest of the body. Laser vein therapy is ultimately designed to restore your skin’s youthful color and tone.
There is no down-time for this procedure. Your healing time will depend upon your actual treatment, however; typically patients experience a pink or red color that resolves with time. You will need to avoid direct sun exposure or use a sun block of at least SPF 30 when outdoors. There should be little to no discomfort; however this varies from patient to patient and depends on depth of treatment. It is best to have a consultation with a Bellevue plastic surgeon prior to your treatment to discuss your needs and expectations.
