ClearV is a Sciton laser that precisely treats vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions, and discoloration of the skin. Unwanted vessels under the skin will be heated by the laser energy, implode, and become less noticeable. This laser is able to treat vascular concerns throughout the entire body.
- Broken Capillaries
- Facial Veins
- Spider Veins

ClearV Frequently Asked Questions:
ClearV does cause slight discomfort during its treatment of vessels. At Altaire, we are able to help control the discomfort through various unique methods. ClearV has integrated cooling which will improve your experience. There should be no prolonged post treatment discomfort.
Patient responses may vary. Redness and swelling around the treated vessels are usually noted within a few minutes and typically have a “cat scratch” appearance. A sun burn sensation and a slight feeling of soreness are also normal and expected. These reactions tend to subside within 24-48 hours after the treatment.
After 48 hours, the skin over the treated veins will look slightly red, purple, or bruised. Sometimes the veins will be more visible than they were prior to treatment. This is normal. Within the first two to three weeks, the redness and purple color will begin to fade. Each week, the color will become lighter and the veins will become less noticeable.
The number of ClearV treatments required will depend upon the number of vessels present, the character of the vessels, and your body’s ability to heal. Subsequent treatments are based upon provider recommendations and are usually spaced every 4-6 weeks apart.
