Whether you’re dealing with hyperpigmentation or unwanted hair, both issues can cause you to hide your skin or spend lots of money on temporary solutions. The Clarity II laser machine lets you treat the root of the issue. The laser treatment works to either remodel the skin to diminish pigmentation or destroy your hair follicles to get rid of unwanted hair.
What is Clarity II?
Clarity II is a laser machine that works to treat a variety of issues. It can remove unwanted hair, reduce redness, diminish hyperpigmentation, and revitalize your skin to make you look more youthful and radiant.
Who is a Good Candidate For Clarity II?
Anyone dealing with age spots, freckles, birthmarks, sun damage, and any other type of benign pigmentation is a good candidate for Clarity II treatment. Whether your unwanted pigmentation is due to the sun, genetics, or the natural signs of aging, the Clarity II laser machine can have you looking your absolute best.
But it doesn’t only work on pigmentation. It can also be used to remove unwanted hair. Say goodbye to shaving, waxing, and tweezing. If you have unwanted hair, you’re also a good candidate for the laser treatment.
The Treatment Process
The Clarity II treatment process is pretty simple. We pass the laser device over the area you’re looking to treat. You may feel a light “snapping” sensation on the skin, but with the skin-cooling system that’s part of the machine, you won’t feel any heat or burning whatsoever. It’s completely safe and comfortable.
Depending on what you’re having treated, how many areas you’re having treated, and the size of the areas, your treatment time may be relatively short or a little longer.
During your consultation we will examine your skin. This is done to identify your skin type so that the device parameters can be set accordingly. Make sure to tell us about any tattoos or skin spots.
Follow these preparation directions:
- Avoid sun exposure three days before the session.
- Shave the body areas where the procedure will be performed.
- Do not wax or pluck hair from the roots before your laser hair removal appointment.
There is no downtime or recovery time associated with laser hair removal, but patients are advised to follow aftercare instructions diligently. This includes avoiding use of tanning lotions and avoiding exposure to excessive heat with warm showers. Patients are also advised to stay out of the sun for a few weeks after the treatment.
Recovery and Results
There is virtually no downtime no matter what you’re having treated with the Clarity II laser. You may experience some redness or light swelling, but it will go away after a few days.
You may see results right away for some skin issues, but for others, you may need a series of treatments to see results. This is especially the case if you’re looking to get rid of unwanted hair.
