ClearLift Your Way to Better Skin
- Posted on: Jan 22 2017
You could come to Northocoast Laser Cosmetics and simply have a ClearLift™ non-ablative laser resurfacing session instead.
What do we use ClearLift™ on?
ClearLift helps to improve fine lines, wrinkles, and skin whose tone has become grey and dull, kind of like your ex-husband! ClearLift is gentle enough to treat areas that are typically too sensitive to treat with ablative lasers: delicate skin around the eyes, neck, mouth, and chest.
What is ClearLift™?
The key word in ClearLift is “non-ablative.” Now this sounds like a scientific word, but it really just means it doesn’t tear up your skin’s surface like a Cedar Pointe roller coaster tears up your inner ear.
ClearLift™ delivers laser light energy, which converts to heat energy under the skin, through the epidermis down into the dermis layer beneath. When the dermis is heated, it creates a dermal wound that triggers a wound response from the skin. Its healing mechanism is to build new collagen and elastin to “heal” the perceived wound. All the while, the surface skin, the epidermis, is left undamaged. Because of that, there is no downtime with a ClearLift treatment.
Because the ClearLift laser is non-ablative to the surface of the skin, it offers numerous advantages in skin improvement.
- Virtually painless— The procedure is not painful. Patients report feeling a warming sensation as the laser energy converts to heat energy under the epidermis.
- Fast treatments— There is no need for topical numbing anesthetic, since the energy is delivered beneath the surface. Treatments are complete in as little as 20 minutes.
- No downtime— After your treatment, you can go back to your normal activities. This is in marked contrast to ablative laser treatments, which are relatively painful and require extensive recovery periods.
More precise than your brother-on-law the accountant
Because of the five different tips provided with the ClearLift laser, the team at Northcoast can precisely adjust the laser energy to exactly the depth needed. We will use one tip for the face and another for the neck or décolleté. Variable tip depths can also be used for a combination of work on the same area.
