Veins are a vital part of our cardiovascular system, and as we age, they tend to weaken. The veins beneath our skin create an interconnecting transfer network that moves blood from our heart to the rest of our body. Unfortunately, when they weaken, the vessels do not have enough strength to move blood where it is needed. Over time, it results in blotchy, blueish pools near the skin’s surface.
These problematic veins are a health issue, not necessarily just a cosmetic problem. They can cause vascular lesions, varicose veins, enlarged leg veins, and spider veins. These conditions are common in women and affect roughly 50% of the adult population. Marin Medical Aesthetics, we offer Clear V™ treatments, which effectively and safely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions, and skin discoloration with a device that selects and heats the veins to eliminate them.
Clear V™ offers a comfortable and safe procedure utilizing Subsurface Vein Illumination (SVI™) SVI technology, which allows your provider to get a close-up view of your veins. They can easily target veins you could not even see yourself and use laser energy to make the veins less noticeable. Patients have almost no downtime and can resume daily activities after the treatment.
