Leg & Facial Veins

ClearScan YAG’s 1064 nm Nd:YAG wavelength and pulse duration are unmatched for permanent hair reduction and vascular lesions from telangiectasias to reticular leg and facial veins.

The selective 1064 nm wavelength has strong absorption in oxyhemoglobin and melanin, resulting in selective heating of veins and hair follicles, which produces excellent clinical results. The powerful contact cooling enables treatments to be safe for all skin types and tanned skin.

ClearScan YAG’s large area pattern generator (LAPG), fast speed, non-sequential scanning, powerful cooling, and flat-top beam profile provide optimal results and patient comfort during the procedure.

Clinical Applications

ClearScan YAG is FDA cleared for permanent hair reduction and treating vein and vascular conditions:

  • Permanent Hair Reduction – Removal of unwanted hair or permanent hair reduction through selective targeting of melanin in hair follicles, and for the treatment of pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB).
  • Vein and Vascular – Benign vascular lesions, port wine stains, hemangiomas, warts, telangiectasia, rosacea, venous lake, leg veins and spider veins.

How it works

  • ClearScan YAG utilizes the LAPG high speed scanner in a non-sequential delivery for comfortable hair reduction with continuous contact cooling for precise, uniform coverage.
  • The computer guided scanner covers large areas rapidly and evenly.
  • Maximizes the time interval between adjacent spots for precision thermal relaxation time.
  • Minimizes subsurface heat build-up providing additional comfort during treatment.
  • High speed, uniform coverage.
  • Improved efficacy.
