Itchy Veins? How Sciton mJOULE Treats Vascular Concerns

It’s hard to feel like your best self every day when you’re struggling with skin concerns. Port wine stains, rosacea, and spider veins are a few of the common vascular problems patients deal with.

Maybe you’re spending more time than you’d like in the mornings covering little vessels with makeup. You might be hiding your favorite outfits in the back of the closet because the spider veins on your legs feel embarrassing.

The issue is that so many providers don’t offer a solution that actually works for these specific concerns. Enter the Sciton mJOULE vascular platform – the most effective laser treatment that clears vessels on the face and body without causing skin damage. Don’t let vascular concerns take away from living your life!

The Power of Sciton’s mJOULE Vascular Platform

Sciton’s mJOULE vascular platform is configurable with different components to target specific concerns for patients. It’s a revolutionary advancement in technology to address vascular skin concerns.

Two of the most advanced components for vascular treatments are ClearV and ClearSilk, lasers that target skin concerns without harming the surrounding skin. The best part is that no matter which you choose, results continue to improve with time, and patients can boost their improvements with routine treatments.

Does the mJOULE Platform Treat all Skin Types?

Yes! Many patients with deeper skin tones wonder whether laser treatment will be safe and work, which is a valid concern. Sciton’s mJOULE platform for vascular concerns can treat all skin types. The most important thing is finding a reputable provider with the knowledge to apply mJOULE laser treatments like ClearSilk and ClearV properly for different skin types.

ClearV is the Most Potent Laser Therapy for Vascular Treatments

Unlike other solutions, ClearV has technology that integrates many functionalities into one handpiece. Not only does it offer Subsurface Vein Illumination (SVI), but it treats more spot sizes in one session, and offers integrated cooling for a more comfortable and effective experience. 

ClearV laser therapy treats several concerns on the face and body, including: 

  • Spider veins
  • Visible and hidden vessels
  • Rosacea
  • Warts
  • Acne 
  • Facial, leg, and body veins
  • Port wine stains
  • Broken capillaries
  • Facial telangiectasias

As a solution that treats all Fitzpatrick skin types, ClearVcan be used all year long, even on sun damaged skin. Plus, patients can choose to combine ClearV with other Sciton treatments, such as ClearSilk, BBL HERO, and MOXI laser for total rejuvenation.

Laser Therapy for Spider Veins on Face & Body

One of the most common issues that people deal with are spider veins – dense clusters of red or bluish blood vessels that can be seen through the skin. 

Forming web-like patterns, spider veins aren’t a medical issue, but they can make people feel self-conscious. Sometimes spider veins can itch or cause discomfort, which is another reason so many people like to treat them. 

While they often appear on the legs, spider veins can appear on the face. Either way, the mJOULE is groundbreaking in its ability to address spider veins and vascular lesions. The blood cells in the veins absorb the laser energy, shrinking with time until they eventually dissolve and you’re left with clear skin.

ClearV: What to Expect During Treatment

One ClearV laser treatment session generally takes 5-10 minutes. For larger treatment areas, a session can take up to 30 minutes. The most popular treatment areas are the legs and face.

There is no anesthesia required, the only steps you might take before treatment are removing any makeup or moisturizer, and shaving the area if necessary. 

During your appointment, your eyes will have protection via safety shields or glasses. Your provider will pass the ClearV handpiece over the treatment area to deliver precise laser energy. It’s normal to feel warm sensations as the laser works.

How ClearV’s Vein Illumination Provides Better Results

Using an orange light, Clear V’s LED capabilities illuminate unwanted vessels during treatment. This allows providers to precisely locate and target vessels, closing them and preventing their return, for the body to naturally eliminate with time. 

Noticeable results start to show between 4-6 weeks, and patients can expect a reduction in veins after one treatment.

ClearV Aftercare

Since it is a gentle yet effective solution, there is no uncomfortable downtime, but your skin is more susceptible to sunburn and pigmentation change for the first 7 days after treatment. 

There are a few things you should avoid to give yourself the best healing time after ClearV while your skin is still sensitive, including:

  • Applying makeup to the treated area
  • Using heavy lotions, scented creams, or exfoliants
  • Hot water, pools with chemicals, and hot tubs
  • Shaving the treated area
  • Strenuous activity or exercise that causes excessive sweating

In most cases, patients are free to resume normal activities right away. We recommend leaving 4-6 weeks between mJOULE treatments to give the best results.

Revitalizing with ClearSilk’s Lunchtime Facial Laser Treatment

While ClearV is the solution to treating the appearance of veins, ClearSilk can address small vessels in the skin that cause redness. Many patients choose ClearSilk to improve their complexion before a big event, or as a part of their skincare routine to maintain healthy skin.

ClearSilk is a gentler treatment for the face, neck, and décolleté, targeting:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Redness and rosacea
  • Dull skin
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Uneven skin texture

By reducing blushing, fine lines and wrinkles, and addressing acne scars, ClearSilk leaves you with a healthier, more vibrant complexion. Some patients combine their ClearSilk treatment with ClearV or BBL HERO for a complete skin and vascular solution.

ClearSilk Treatable Areas

Even though it’s commonly referred to as a lunchtime facial, ClearSilk’s capabilities extend far beyond the face. Virtually anywhere that needs attention can be treated with ClearSilk, from the arms and legs to the neck, chest, and abdomen. 

Patients can use ClearSilk year-round as a therapeutic treatment that continues to improve with each session.

Your ClearSilk Appointment Expectations

When it comes to better skin clarity and texture, a series of ClearSilk treatments is fast, easy, and highly effective. 

With no anesthesia necessary for a comfortable experience, your ClearSilk provider will glide a handpiece half an inch from the skin of the treatment area for the laser to work its magic. Treatments take 30 minutes or less. There is no downtime, which is why this is known as a lunchtime facial – you’re free to go about your day pain-free.

Depending on your goals and current skin condition, your provider may recommend four to six ClearSilk treatments. It’s best to leave anywhere from two to four weeks between appointments so that the skin has time to improve from the last treatment.

ClearSilk Results & Aftercare

Like ClearV, ClearSilk is a non-ablative resurfacing treatment. That means it’s ideal for addressing skin concerns that age us without the more intense recovery time.

Minor redness and warmth are normal to experience for a few hours after treatment. These feelings indicate that the treatment was performed correctly, and the body is responding appropriately. 

You’ll start to notice a more youthful glow after one session. Results are subtle but visible, and improvements continue to build with subsequent ClearSilk sessions if you choose this as part of your skincare routine. Be sure to protect yourself from the sun (sunscreen, hats, light and comfortable clothing, etc.) to prolong your results.
