Unmatched safety for treating virtually all vascular lesions
The ClearScan laser by Sciton uses infrared laser energy to precisely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions, and discoloration of your skin by using laser energy. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin condition and desired result.
The energy travels through the skin surface and is absorbed by the blue or red pigment of the blood vessel which causes them to heat up. The heat generated causes the walls of the vein to break down and close. A natural process of re-absorption follows and the veins are no longer visible where they were destroyed.
Conditions that can be treated with this laser include facial veins, leg veins, rosacea, and generalized redness. All skin areas can be treated. You may resume your daily activities immediately.
Most patients are treated with a topical anesthetic prior to the treatment which eliminates the minimal discomfort. Most patients report a brief feeling of heat sensation as the laser pulses are absorbed by the unwanted vessels, but there is no long-lasting procedure discomfort.
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. The laser beam will be delivered to the area of your skin being treated. You may briefly feel a warm or hot sensation as the laser pulses are preferentially absorbed in the unwanted vessels, heating and destroying them. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated.
You may experience some redness after the procedure which may last for several days. Any vessels denatured by the laser will be reabsorbed by your body over a period of time in a natural cleansing process. You may resume your daily activities immediately. Dr. Schwartz will answer questions about temporary changes on your skin color and how they may be camouflaged at his practice in New York City NY.

A non-ablative approach to firmer skin
The SkinTyte treatment utilizes pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. This process promotes the contraction of collagen, initiating the body’s natural healing process. Following treatment, a new foundation of collagen is created leading to increased skin firmness. The end result is a more youthful appearance.
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic, however Dr. Schwartz may recommend one if you are especially sensitive. While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30 minutes, the actual time will depend on the area treated.
After treatment, you may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after treatment and this should return to normal within minutes. Since the SkinTyte procedure is noninvasive there is no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session. No special skincare regimen is required following treatment.
SkinTyte procedure results may vary from patient to patient. The SkinTyte procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin colors and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and Dr. Schwartz can personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire at his practice in New York City NY. Most patients will require a series of treatments spaced 2-3 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. At his office in New York City NY, Dr. Schwartz may also combine SkinTyte with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
