Sciton® ClearV™ & ClearSilk™ Laser Treatments
Sciton® is at the forefront of cosmetic laser technology, and triple board-certified Dr. Sara Yegiyants offers two excellent treatments with entirely different goals. Sciton® ClearV™ is for rosacea, vascular lesions, and spider veins. Sciton® ClearSilk™ is a quicker procedure that can clear pigment, reduce vascularity, and improve the overall appearance of the skin tissue and pores. ClearSilk™ is commonly referred to as a “lunchtime facial” since it is so quick and easy. Patients can resume their daily activities directly after their session.
Sciton® ClearV™ in Santa Barbara
Are you one of the sixteen million Americans who suffer from rosacea, common among women who navigate through menopause? Sciton® ClearV™ is a laser vein treatment that helps with this issue, along with vascular lesions, port wine stains, spider veins, and birthmarks.
ClearV™: The Preferred Choice for Vascular Treatments.
ClearV™ offers a safe and effective treatment to address broken capillaries, visible vessels, spider veins, skin discoloration, and vascular lesions. It employs laser energy to heat undesirable micro-vessels and resistant subsurface vessels to ensure they fade over time and are less noticeable. As a result, patients experience little to no downtime and may resume regular activities immediately after treatment.
What Can I Expect During my ClearV™ Laser Treatment?
During your consultation, Dr. Yegiyants will discuss treatment areas, what to expect, and what to do after treatment for optimal recovery and results.
Before your treatment, we ask you to remove makeup or moisturizer and, if necessary, to shave the treatment area. You won’t need an anesthetic for the treatment.
We will protect your eyes with safety glasses. Depending on the treatment site, your session will take half an hour or less. Laser energy will be administered precisely to the skin where you have the issue. This energy will feel warm to hot as the damaged vessels absorb the pulses.
What Areas of The Body Can ClearV™ Treat?
ClearV™ laser treatments can be safely done all over the body. Typical treatment areas include:
- No downtime: After treatment, you can return to your routine
- ClearV™ can safely be done all year (even during the warmer months), offering more flexibility on your timeline
- Treats all skin types: ClearV™ may be used on all skin tones and types
What Can I Expect During Recovery After a ClearV™ Treatment?
You may experience swelling and redness around the targeted site. A sunburn sensation is expected, as is soreness. These tend to subside within 48 hours.
After 48 hours, your skin will look slightly bruised. The veins may become more visible than before the treatment, but this is normal. Within three weeks, the color will start to fade and become lighter and lighter each week afterward.
A support hose or an ace bandage will help with discomfort and bruising.
SVI (Subsurface Vein Illumination)
SVI employs two light colors to offer custom color blending and three brightness intensities. This helps illuminate targeted blemishes for a precision vessel treatment.
Integrated Spot Adjustment
The integrated spot size adjustment allows us to select the right spot size for customized treatment without using adapters or additional technology. This feature, of course, minimizes downtime.
Sciton® ClearSilk™: The Lunchtime Facial with a No-Downtime Solution
Over time, the skin can develop pigmentation and textural issues because of lifestyle changes, the natural aging process, and environmental factors. In addition, its building blocks—collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid— naturally slow in production. Sciton® ClearSilk™ delivers gentle, targeted heat to underlying skin tissues to correct these cosmetic concerns and provide radiant results with no downtime.
ClearSilk™ is the perfect 30 minute facial for a special event or just to look fabulous. It is an excellent first laser treatment for patients of all skin types who need to resume their daily activities immediately following treatment. Its uniform, non-ablative heating ensures beautiful, reliable results.

What is the Process When Getting a ClearSilk™ Treatment?
