FEMALE VOICE: Benign vascular lesions are a common problem for many people. Fortunately, these lesions can now be treated with laser therapy, meaning fast, effective and safe treatment with maximum patient comfort. JODI: I had veins around my nose, and some on my legs. So I had redness around in here. BRYAN: I had two people that I trust and that are friends that had mentioned that I had those veins going down. And one of them was telling me that I should get it taken care of, that he had it done, and it was a simple process, inexpensive, and the result was fantastic, and he felt much better about himself. The second friend on mine I hadn't seen in a long time, and he actually thought I had been scratched by a cat. And I thought at that point it's time to take the first person's advice and get this taken care of. FEMALE VOICE: ClearScan™ from Sciton is the solution for vascular treatments, including dark and tanned skin. ClearScan™ is effective. It delivers the ideal wavelength for virtually all vascular lesions, allowing your physician to precisely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins and lesions. For larger vessels, ClearScan's wavelength penetrates and uniformly treats the entire vessel. It also penetrates deeper into the skin as compared to other laser options. For smaller veins, ClearScan™ allows your healthcare provider to deliver the precise amount of heat at the desired length of time to effectively allow the vein to disappear, allowing new vessels to replace its function. BRYAN: It was great. It was almost like going in for a teeth whitening. When I left, I didn't have any veins in my chin, and the whole way driving home, I kept looking in the mirror. I couldn't believe what happened. And why I waited. JODI: I treated the veins that I could see wearing shorts or just bothering me, and they were just spider veins. So I had just one treatment, and they went away. FEMALE VOICE: ClearScan™ is fast. Its robotic technology delivers precise and consistent results. BRYAN: It took about 30 minutes, and they were removed, completely. As soon as I left here, I went back, showed my wife and returned to work. FEMALE VOICE: ClearScan™ is designed for patient comfort and safety. With its powerful integrated cooling system, ClearScan™ gives your physician precise control over cooling, including full skin contact for maximum comfort before, during and after treatment. JODI: It just felt like a rubber band snapping. That's only the best description I can say. It's maybe someone snapping a rubber band on me. BRYAN: She said I might feel a little bit of pain in the beginning, but I really didn't feel any pain, just the short shock, and after that, you got used to what it was going to be. So it was just a quick little zap. So there was absolutely no pain. FEMALE VOICE: Vascular lesions may require multiple treatments. Your healthcare provider will determine the appropriate number of treatments needed to achieve optimal results. The ClearScan™ system can be used on all skin areas. Popular areas are the face, the neck, the chest and the legs. JODI: I'd do it again. I'm very happy with the results, and it took care of it on one try. I was very happy with that. BRYAN: It was a relief when they were gone, and they were gone like that. And it was a great experience. One of those things I wish I would've done five years ago. FEMALE VOICE: ClearScan™, the solution for virtually all vascular lesions, including small surface vessels and deeper, larger veins. Technology that ensures fast and consistent results, and an integrated, full-contact cooling system for patient comfort and safety. That's ClearScan™ from Sciton.
