Rosacea on your cheeks, visible veins on your legs, and other vascular concerns can detract from a healthy, youthful look. Laser vein treatments at our medical spa in Barrington, IL, can clear redness away along with your self-consciousness. Our Sciton® ClearV applicator makes treatments efficient with little to no pain or downtime.
What Does It Treat?
Safe for all skin types and tones on the face, legs, and body, ClearV laser vein treatments get to the source of your concerns by targeting both the vessels you can see and those below the surface. Commonly treated concerns include:
- Broken capillaries
- Spider veins (telangiectasias)
- Cherry hemangiomas
- Vascular lesions
- Port wine stains (birthmarks)
- Skin tags
How Does Laser Vein Removal Work?
The ClearV handpiece emits pulses of laser energy that pass through the skin without harming its surface. The laser energy heats up and destroys targeted vessels, which collapse and are gradually absorbed by the body over time. ClearV uses special lights to illuminate the offending blood vessels so we can treat them precisely and make the most of each treatment.
As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Burke uses the latest techniques and technology to bring your vision to life. Her artistic eye and years of experience produce stunning results that enhance your natural beauty.
Do ClearV Treatments Hurt?
Because ClearV has built-in cooling, treatments involve little to no discomfort, even without numbing cream.
What Happens During a Laser Vein Treatment?
Our medical laser specialists perform laser vein removal as a simple office treatment. After cleansing the skin and placing protective covers over your eyes, they apply a conductive gel to the skin. The ClearV handpiece is placed on the skin, and a quick pulse of warm laser energy is released. The procedure can take as little as a few minutes or up to a half hour, depending on the areas being targeted.
How Long Does It Take To Heal After a Laser Vein Treatment?
Patients have virtually no downtime and may resume daily activities immediately following treatment. We do ask patients to not exercise for at least 48 hours after their treatment. It is safe to apply makeup to treated areas right away because the skin is not harmed by the treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Certain small, shallow concerns may require a single treatment, while others will need approximately 3 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for optimal results.
While laser vein treatments produce near total clearing, patients must understand that the body naturally will produce new vessels or redness over time that can be treated to restore a clear and even complexion.
