Your circulatory system does an amazing job moving blood throughout your body. Arteries move oxygenated blood into your tissues, while veins and capillaries work to return deoxygenated blood back to your heart where the process repeats again and again.
Your veins are one-way vessels, and a series of tiny valves keep blood moving back toward your heart. When these valves become weakened or damaged, the blood can begin to pool, placing pressure on vein walls and creating the twisted, bulging effects known as varicose veins.
Capillaries, which are tiny blood vessels, can also become damaged. When capillary walls are damaged or distorted, blood gets trapped within and creates enlarged vessels that become visible through the surface of your skin.
Additional vascular issues include birthmarks, port wine stains, and the redness caused by rosacea.
Broken or damaged blood vessels are often visible through your skin. They can appear as bulging purple or blue veins, or create a smaller, spider-web-shaped area that can be red, blue, or purple.
Your body cannot easily clear damaged veins without treatment. ClearV is an advanced laser treatment platform that uses light energy to eliminate damaged blood vessels. Treatments do not require any surgical intervention or anesthesia.
The process is simple: ClearV uses carefully controlled beams of light to create a type of energy that passes through your skin. The laser light is drawn to the concentrated hemoglobin in the damaged blood vessels.
The laser energy creates heat in the pooled blood and broken blood vessels. This heat damages the walls of the blood vessels, preventing them from continuing to contain the non-flowing blood.
Your body then processes and removes the damaged blood vessels through your lymphatic system. There is no damage to your circulatory system because your body begins rerouting blood flow as soon as the blood vessels are damaged, long before ClearV treatments. You are simply clearing away damaged tissues that weren’t functioning.
ClearV treatments aren’t painful, although you might notice a sensation of heat during your sessions. In the days to follow, your skin might feel as though you have a mild sunburn, and also have minor swelling and redness, which is normal.
It is also normal for treated veins to actually become temporarily more noticeable in the days after your treatment. Your body then begins clearing away damaged tissues. Expect to begin seeing the results of your treatment within a few weeks and watch your damaged blood vessels fade away gradually.
