At Omaha Face, we perform customized vein treatments with the groundbreaking ClearScan Yag system. The ClearScan system was developed to remove unsightly visible veins, skin redness, vascular lesions, and a range of hyperpigmentation issues. It is a non-ablative therapy that leaves the surrounding tissues unharmed. If you have visible veins, our system can make them disappear – leaving your skin even in tone and increasing your confidence.
Smooth skin, free from visible veins
The ClearScan Yag system is a next-generation laser that can treat a range of skin conditions, including:
- Facial veins
- Spider veins
- Rosacea and redness
- Vascular malformations and birthmarks
- Pigmented lesions
- Broken capillaries
What should I expect?
Treatment with the laser starts with a thorough examination of the area requiring treatment. Eye protection is put in place, and the unsightly veins or pigmented skin is treated with several passes of the laser. In most cases, there is no swelling or bruising. The sensation is like the snap of a band against the skin and not difficult to tolerate. Spider veins often disappear at once, leaving some redness which typically fades within 24 hours in almost all cases.
What causes spider veins?
Spider veins are dilated capillaries. They appear as blue or red spiderweb-like lines on the skin. They commonly appear on the legs or around the nose or lips.
They are not harmful and are a cosmetic issue rather than a health problem. They are caused by the blood pooling in the veins close to the skin surface. They often appear with aging or occur during pregnancy. All veins have a valve, which works to ensure the blood flows in the right direction. When the valves are damaged, the blood, rather than flowing backward as it should, will pool beneath the skin.
How does it work?
The laser energy emitted by this innovative system is attracted to and absorbed by the darker color of the veins. As the vein absorbs the light energy, it collapses, and the blood is rerouted to another vessel. This device has an advanced cooling feature to make the experience more comfortable and safe.
What areas can be treated?
All areas of your skin can be free of unsightly veins or hyperpigmentation. If you are embarrassed by visible veins on your face or body, we can solve it quickly and effectively. The areas we can treat include:
Do I need time off work or play?
For darker and deeper lesions, there may be some mild blistering, but it usually resolves within a week. If pigmented areas are treated, these may appear slightly darker for a couple of weeks before gradually fading. Larger or deeper blood vessels may take several weeks to resorb, and it is not uncommon to need a series of treatments for the best results. After-treatment care is usually very straightforward, requiring the application of gentle moisturizer and avoiding sun exposure.
