What is the ClearV Laser?
The ClearV is a Nd:YAG 1064 laser that is the gold standard for removing vascular lesions (spider veins, telangiectasias, port wine stains, leg veins, periorbital veins) on the face and body. We use this laser in conjunction with Broadband Light and Broadband Light HERO to reduce the redness or erythema that many rosacea suffers contend with daily. The reason why the 1064 is considered the standard to remove facial vessels is because it has a strong absorption to something called oxyhemoglobin. This allows the laser to selectively heat veins to remove them or make them less visible while not harming the skin. Therefore, we can treat darker skin types without concerns of changing the pigment color of their skin.
