At Acqua Blu Medical Spa we offer our clients a variety of specialized treatments for solutions to issues such as unwanted tattoos, wrinkled skin, acne, scars, and much more. Our highly trained and experienced team works with each client to answer all of their questions and develop a customized treatment plan.

Vascular and Redness Treatment

One of our most common procedures is vascular and redness treatment. Acqua Blu’s Sciton ClearScan laser allows providers to precisely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions and discoloration of a client’s skin by using laser energy. Each treatment will be tailored to match your skin condition and desired results.

Our team uses the Sciton ClearScan laser to restore skin tone and color to your skin. 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 less noticeable. This procedure can successfully address a variety of conditions, including:

  • Rosacea
  • Redness
  • Facial Veins
  • Telangiectasia
  • Spider Veins
  • Broken Capillaries

Procedure

During the process, your eyes are protected with safety shields or glasses. Laser energy will be delivered precisely to the area of skin needing treatment, and you may briefly feel a warm or hot sensation as the unwanted 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. 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 their particular treatment. In most cases, there is virtually no downtime and clients may resume daily activity immediately. Some may experience some redness after the procedure. Our team will answer questions about temporary changes in skin color and how they may be camouflaged.

Your skin will be pink temporarily following the procedure, but it will resolve over time. Any vessels denatured by the laser will be reabsorbed 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.

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