Sciton Clearscan

CLEARSCAN is the Sciton version of smart infrared laser technology plastic surgeon nyc, using dual mode computer module to precisely treat visible veins and unwanted hair. CLEARSCAN in the first mode has been specifically designed to precisely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions and discoloration of your skin. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin condition and desired result. The CLEARSCAN technology allows the laser to target the unwanted vessels only, which will be preferentially heated by the laser’s energy and become less noticeable. Any vessles denatured by the laser will be reabsorbed by your body over a period of time. Most small capillaries will become invisible almost immediately since they will no longer contain blood flow. All skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest, and legs. In some cases, repeat treatment will be necessary depending on your response to the treatment and the result desired. Your healing time will depend upon your actual treatment. You may experience a few days of redness, but there is virtually no downtime and you may resume moderate activity immediately. After treatment, your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light, and you must avoid direct sun exposure. Many of the conditions treated by the laser will have been caused by sun exposure, so avoiding the sun will prolong your new youthful appearance. You need to fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.


CLEARSCAN laser system in the second mode emits pulses of high-energy infrared light, which pass through the skin and are absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft and follicle. The laser energy heats the follicle and deactivates the cells that produce hair. Hair grows in cycles and only the actively growing follicles are most affected by the laser; therefore, 3 to 5 treatments are spread out to allow for resting hairs to grow, followed by touch-up sessions if more reduction is needed. The CLEARSCAN employs a unique computer guided scanning system that automates the treatment, ensuring that your skin is rapidly and evenly treated. The computer set the parameters and places the beam in an optimum pattern for your skin to ensure safe, fast, effective, and gentle treatment. A system for cooling your skin will be used to remove heat as it leaves the follicles and should ensure a comfortable treatment. However, because the sensation varies from individual to individual, a topical anesthesia can be provided. It is very effective for lighter skin types. In addition, because of the relatively low absorption of this light by melanin, it is the “best choice” when treating darker skin as well. Finally, the ability to safely treat sun-tanned skin makes this the treatment of choice for active individuals. Some redness and slight swelling will be present in the area that has been treated; however, this should subside within a few hours.
