Sciton ClearScan for Broken Capillaries and Veins on Face?

I have been reading about the Sciton ClearScan laser for removal of broken capillaries and sunspots. I have some small broken red capillaries on my cheeks, and some larger blue veins around my eyes that I would like to get rid of. Would ClearScan be a good choice?

Long pulse lasers for telangiectasias and broken vessels

I agree that the long pulse lasers are great for treating facial telangiectasias and broken vessels on the face, nose and neck.

I must admi\t that I do not know much about the Sciton-but for small capillaries on the face I think the pulsed dye laser such as the Candela Perfecta is the best.Be careful treating any veins around the eyes. Many eye doctors think this is risky.
