How Does the Clarity II Laser Work?
The Clarity II laser provides clients with an effective laser hair removal treatment. By combining long-pulsed 755nm Alexandrite wavelengths and 1064nm Nd: YAG laser energy, the dual-wavelength laser removes the hair follicle at the source which can lead to longer-lasting results.
Our estheticians are able to adjust laser wavelengths depending on the intensity that the client desires. As the intensity can be altered, this treatment is suitable for all skin types including those with darker skin.
Benefits of the Clarity II Laser
Aside from removing facial and body hair, the Clarity II treatments can also help improve the appearance of several skin conditions.
This treatment is known as a multi-treatment procedure that can replicate many of the benefits of treatments such as botox and plastic surgery without having to go under the knife.
Some of the many benefits of using the Clarity II laser include:
-Reduction of vascular lesions and leg veins on the skin.
– Improvement of skin discoloration.
-Skin rejuvenation and toning.
-Encourages the production of collagen.
-Helps improve the appearance of rosacea, birthmarks, age spots, and scaly skin.
Who Can Use the Clarity II Treatment?
In comparison to other laser treatments, the Clarity laser is a suitable laser hair removal treatment for all skin types. Whether you have light or dark skin, the Clarity II laser will remove hair quickly and effectively without causing irritation or skin damage.
The Clarity II laser hair removal can be used on all hair colors and textures. The laser adjusts to the client’s specific skin and hair type, so no matter your hair color, thickness, or quality, the Clarity II is suitable for you.
If you have any questions about the procedure, feel free to ask one of our experienced estheticians at our medical spa during your free consultation.
Is the Clarity Laser Safe?
At Xanadu Med Spa, the safety of our patients is our top priority. That’s why we only offer safe treatments that have been vetted and approved by our licensed estheticians. The Clarity II laser uses real-time temperature sensing to ensure the perfect temperature to destroy hair follicles while maintaining a safe heat that doesn’t damage the skin.
The Clarity II laser is completely FDA-approved and side effects are extremely rare.
Clarity II vs. Other Lasers
Unlike the Clarity II laser, other hair removal lasers are not suitable for dark skin or darker skin tones as they are unable to switch wavelengths depending on the skin’s natural color and tone.
Because of this, other laser treatments have the tendency to burn the surrounding skin cells of darker skin while destroying the person’s hair follicles.
What Does the Clarity II Feel Like?
The Clarity II machine includes a built-in cooling mechanism that instantly dissipates heat that can be emitted by the lasers. The machine also includes a built-in cryogenic spray that actively cools the skin during the laser procedure.
Due to the device’s cooling methods, the risk of discomfort and irritation of the skin is decreased significantly.
What Should I Do Before Treatment?
Using the Clarity II laser does not require any pre-treatment.
Patients should not undergo other laser treatments for at least two weeks before their appointment in order to avoid skin damage. We also recommend avoiding sun tanning beds 24-48 hours before treatment as this can increase skin sensitivity.
How Long Do the Laser Hair Removal Sessions Take?
Each appointment takes between 30 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the area being treated.
The handheld Clarity II device’s diameter can be adjusted in size depending on the treatment area. Therefore, the lengths of the sessions are significantly reduced as larger areas of hair can be treated quickly and effectively.
Also, the quick pulse technology of the Clarity device helps speed up the process of hair removal, so you can be finished in no time.
When Will I See Results?
In comparison to other treatments, the Clarity II laser hair removal is very efficient in removing unwanted hair.
Unlike older lasers that usually require over 10 sessions to effectively destroy the hair follicle, the Clarity II requires fewer treatments. In fact, results are usually visible after just 4 sessions.
As the Clarity II dual-wavelength laser includes a built-in cooling mechanism, irritation and redness are a rare occurrence, making downtime virtually 0.
Having said that, we always recommend our clients to use SPF factor 50+ sunscreen as the skin may be slightly sensitive to harsh UV rays.
We also recommend our patients to pat the skin dry after showering rather than rubbing to avoid irritation and use moisturizing creams and lotions to keep the skin hydrated.
