Get the Red Out

Laser Treatments Grand Rapids, MI At Elite Plastic Surgery, we can precisely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions, and discoloration with our ClearScan laser. This laser is gentle enough to be used on the face and neck, along with the chest and legs.

What type of skin conditions can ClearScan treat?

  • Rosacea
  • Redness
  • Facial veins
  • Broken capillaries
  • Spider veins
  • Telangiectasia

How does it clear up these issues?

The ClearScan laser is powerful, yet gentle enough to use on the face. The laser delivers light energy whose wavelength is matched to the unwanted vein, capillary, or pigmentation problem. Once it hits the skin, the unwanted vein absorbs the light energy, and it immediately converts to heat. The heat acts to close off the vein or capillary. Smaller veins vanish immediately. Larger veins dramatically lessen in appearance and gradually disappear over the next few weeks.

What happens during the procedure?

We first protect your eyes with safety goggles. Then the laser energy is delivered to the treatment area. You’ll feel a very brief hot sensation as the laser pulses, and the unwanted vessels absorb the energy. The length of your session depends on how many veins you’re having treated or the size of the rosacea outbreak. Patients don’t feel the treatment is painful at all, and there isn’t any post-treatment discomfort.

What happens after my ClearScan treatment?

Your skin will temporarily be pink, but it will resolve relatively quickly. Most of the small capillaries treated become invisible almost immediately, as there is no longer any blood in them.

Recovery from ClearScan

A ClearScan session does not require any recovery. The important thing will be to protect your skin from sun exposure, as it will be sensitive to ultraviolet light after your ClearScan session.
