The Clear Solution to Vascular Concerns

Picture yourself looking in the mirror and seeing smooth, evenly toned skin without the distraction of spider veins, broken capillaries or redness. These common vascular issues can often feel like unwelcome guests, lingering on your face and body despite your best efforts to banish them. If you’re tired of concealing these imperfections and ready to reveal a clearer, more radiant complexion, it’s time to discover ClearV.

At Terrasse Aesthetic Surgery and ERASE MediSpa, we offer ClearV as a cutting-edge solution to help you reclaim your natural beauty and make those persistent vascular concerns a thing of the past.

What Is ClearV®?

ClearV is an advanced laser treatment designed to target and eliminate unwanted vascular issues. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, ClearV delivers precise laser energy to the affected areas, selectively heating and collapsing the blood vessels without damaging the surrounding skin. This noninvasive procedure is safe, effective and suitable for various skin types and conditions.

What Vascular Issues Does ClearV® Treat?

ClearV offers versatility in treating different types of visible blood vessels, including:

  • Spider Veins: Small, web-like veins typically found on the legs and face
  • Broken Capillaries: Fine red lines or patterns often seen on the cheeks and nose
  • Rosacea: Chronic skin condition causing redness and visible blood vessels
  • Angiomas: Benign growths consisting of small blood vessels
  • Port Wine Stains: Congenital vascular malformation presenting as red or purple skin discolorations
  • Venous Lakes: Dark blue or purple soft bumps found on the lips or face

By targeting these issues, ClearV can significantly improve the appearance of your skin, making it look healthier and more radiant.

How Does ClearV® Work to Treat Blood Vessels?

ClearV works by emitting a focused beam of light that is absorbed by the blood within the targeted vessels. This light converts into heat, causing the vessel walls to collapse and seal shut. Over time, the body naturally absorbs the treated vessels, resulting in a clearer complexion. The ClearV system also features integrated cooling to enhance your comfort during the procedure.

Who Are Good Candidates for ClearV®?

ClearV is suitable for a wide range of individuals. Good candidates typically include:

  • People in good general health without underlying conditions that may affect healing.
  • Individuals with realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.
  • Those who have visible vascular concerns they wish to address.
  • Patients not currently taking medications that cause photosensitivity.

What to Expect During a ClearV® Consultation

During your consultation at Terrasse Aesthetic Surgery and ERASE MediSpa, your licensed medical aesthetician will assess your specific situation to determine if ClearV is the right treatment for you. She will review your medical history, evaluate your areas of concern and discuss your treatment goals to develop the optimal treatment plan for you. He will then explain the treatment process, what to expect before and after, and answer any questions you have.

How to Prepare for ClearV® Treatment

Proper preparation can enhance the effectiveness and comfort of your ClearV treatment. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to prepare for your procedure:

Two to Four Weeks Before Treatment

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect your skin from direct sunlight to reduce sensitivity and irritation.
  • Discontinue Certain Medications: Let our staff know about any medications you are taking, particularly those that increase photosensitivity.

One Week Before Treatment

  • Stop Using Retinoids: Cease the use of retinoid products to minimize skin sensitivity.
  • Avoid Blood Thinners: If possible, avoid aspirin and other blood-thinning medications or supplements.

Day of Treatment

  • Clean Skin: Come to your appointment with the treatment area clean and free of lotions, creams and makeup.
  • Wear Comfortable Clothing: Opt for clothing that’s comfortable for you and that easily exposes the area being treated.

What to Expect During Your ClearV® Procedure

Here’s what you can expect at your ClearV appointment:

  1. Preparation: We will cleanse the treatment area and provide you with protective eyewear.
  2. Treatment: Using the ClearV handpiece, your aesthetician will deliver precise laser pulses to the target vessels. You may feel a slight snapping sensation, but the integrated cooling system helps minimize discomfort.
  3. Post-Treatment Care: After the procedure, we will apply a soothing gel to the treated area to reduce any potential redness or swelling.

ClearV treatments are relatively quick, typically lasting 15 to 45 minutes depending on the size and number of areas being treated.

What to Expect After ClearV®

No downtime is needed after ClearV, but following post-treatment care instructions is important to promote the best results. Here’s a timeline of what you can expect:

Immediately After Treatment

  • Redness and Swelling: Mild redness and swelling are common and should subside within a few hours.
  • Cooling and Comfort: Applying a cool compress can help alleviate any discomfort.

First Few Days

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Continue to protect the treated area from the sun using sunscreen and protective clothing.
  • Gentle Skincare: Use gentle, non-irritating skincare products.
  • Avoid Strenuous Activities: Refrain from intense physical activities that may increase blood flow to the treated area.

What Results Can I Expect From ClearV®?

ClearV offers impressive results for those looking to improve vascular concerns. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Immediate Improvement: You may notice some improvement immediately after treatment, with your targeted blood vessels appearing lighter or smaller.
  • Gradual Fading: Over the next few weeks, the treated vessels will continue to fade, resulting in a clearer complexion. Full results may take up to eight weeks.

Are the Results Permanent?

The results of ClearV are long lasting, but they are not necessarily permanent. Treated veins typically do not return; however, new veins can develop over time due to factors such as genetics, aging and lifestyle. Maintenance treatments may be needed to keep your skin looking clear and free of subsequent vascular concerns that develop. It’s important to follow a healthy skincare routine with proper sun protection and to consult with our aesthetician staff about additional best practices to maintain your results.
