Many of the patients who come to us are interested in spider vein treatment in Pittsburgh, or treatment for their rosacea, broken capillaries, facial veins, or redness.

Our highly trained and experienced team works with each patient to answer all of their questions and concerns in order to develop a customized treatment plan to get optimal results.

Vascular and Redness Treatment

One of the most common procedures at Acqua Blu Medical Spa is vascular and redness treatment using our effective Sciton ClearScan laser. This is an excellent option for those seeking spider vein treatment in Pittsburgh, as well as a variety of other vascular and redness problems.

The Sciton ClearScan laser can treat visible blood vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions, and discoloration of the skin.

Spider Vein Treatment Pittsburgh

Each treatment will be tailored to match your skin condition and tone, as well as your desired results. Broken capillaries and other visible vascular structures will be gently eliminated from the upper layers of the skin’s surface. Unwanted vessels will be preferentially heated by the laser energy, and become much less noticeable.

This treatment can successfully address a variety of conditions:

  • Rosacea
  • Redness
  • Facial veins
  • Telangiectasia
  • Spider veins
  • Broken capillaries

What Happens During the Procedure?

During your procedure, your eyes will be protected with safety glasses. Energy from the Sciton ClearScan laser will be delivered precisely to the area being treated, and you may briefly feel a warm or hot sensation as the vessels absorb the laser pulses. The procedure may take anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. There should be little to no discomfort; however, it varies from patient to patient and depends on the treatment. With a spider vein treatment in Pittsburgh or treatment for redness, facial veins, or broken capillaries, there is no need for anesthesia, and our team will discuss options to manage any discomfort from the treatment. There should be no prolonged post-treatment discomfort.

Post-Treatment and Recovery

Your healing time will depend on your particular treatment. In most cases, there is virtually no downtime, and patients may resume daily activity immediately. Some may experience redness after the procedure. Our team will explain any temporary changes in skin color, and how they may be camouflaged. We will also be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you have about treatment. Your skin will be pink temporarily following the procedure, but it will resolve fairly quickly. Any vessels that are denatured by the laser will be re-absorbed by the body over a period of time in a natural cleansing process. Most small capillaries will become invisible almost immediately, since they will no longer contain blood.

Aftercare for Vein and Redness Treatment

It’s important to follow the post-care instructions we give you. You may be given skin care products and instructions on use. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light, so you must avoid direct sun exposure. You will also need to fully cover your skin and use a high SPF sunblock whenever you go outdoors.
