Skin Tightening with Clarity II


Clarity II is a virtually painless, non-ablative approach to laser skin tightening. Using 1064nm Q-switched laser technology, patients are enjoying fast, comfortable treatments with visible results and minimal to no downtime.

Purpose of Laser Skin Tightening

Clarity II helps to improves fine lines, wrinkles and skin that has lost some of its tone. It’s gentle enough to treat areas that are typically too sensitive to treat with traditional ablative lasers, such as the delicate skin around the eyes, neck, mouth and chest.

Laser Skin Tightening Benefits

  • Improves skin texture and tone to help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
  • Keeps skin around the eyes, nose and jaw firm to help maintain a youthful, contoured appearance
  • The Clarity II delivers a controlled dermal wound without harming the overlying epidermis so that all stages of healing and skin repair occur under the intact epidermis.

The Clarity II laser combines two forms of light energy, the 755 nm Alexandrite laser and the 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser. This combination of light energy, paired with a wider variety of pulse width and spot size options, allows us to safely and efficiently treat a broad range of indications with ease. The system’s unique features include proprietary Temperature Sensing and IntelliTrak™ technologies that ensure treatments are consistent and comfortable. The Clarity II laser can be used on all skin types and pigments, which is not the case for many laser procedures.

The combined energy of the Alexandrite and Nd:YAG lasers is able to penetrate the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, without causing any heat damage or injury. Once the light energy penetrates the epidermis it reaches the dermis, the skin’s second layer, where it instantly converts to heat energy. This provides a gentle heating of the dermis layer. This heating stimulates a “wound response” from the body, triggering new collagen production to heal the perceived wound. It also begins a process of skin remodeling where new skin cells are created. Both processes lead to younger-looking, rejuvenated skin. 

Decreasing collagen production is a hallmark of aging; that’s why our skin sags and begins to form wrinkles and creases. Laser skin tightening with the Clarity II laser triggers the creation of new collagen to address the perceived “wound” created in the dermis by the laser. Still, while the new collagen produced rejuvenates the skin in the treatment areas, it doesn’t stop the continued decrease of your body’s natural collagen production. At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we recommend an initial group of 3-5 treatments, each separated by one month. From there, a single treatment every six months stimulates the body to keep adding new collagen to replace what you’re losing.

Our Clarity II laser skin tightening treatments at Northcoast Laser are quick and painless. The procedure takes just 20-30 minutes, making it a perfect lunchtime procedure. You can return directly to work or your other normal activities immediately after your session.

Clarity II laser skin tightening results build with time. While there is an initial refreshed appearance to your skin after your session, your results really begin to show as the body builds new collagen and skin cells over the next few weeks and months. The body can continue to produce new collagen as a result of your skin tightening procedure for up to six months.

No. This procedure doesn’t harm the epidermis at all. There is no bruising or skin damage. You can return to work or other normal activities immediately after your session. Treatment areas may have some initial redness, but this passes very quickly.

There aren’t any side effects or risks with Clarity II laser skin tightening. This procedure is not to be confused with ablative forms of laser skin resurfacing. The Clarity II procedure is effective, yet gentle on the skin.

Informative, friendly, compassionate.

The staff is very knowledgeable on all skin types. I went in for a consult for pigment issues. Melissa put me on a skin care routine with the ZO skin care line and recommend Lase md treatments with an occasional microneedling. My skin has never looked better at the age of 40. My pigment issue has resolved and my skin now has a bright glowing appearance. They keep up to date on the latest laser technology, and the staff is always available to answer any skin care questions I have.

I like that the Drs here are very concerned in your outcome and throughly research your autoimmune reactions. I have lupus and Other autoimmune Problems. I’d love to get many Anti aging things but my body will not accept it they have informed me. Sad but I appreciate all the truthfulness care and provide great skin products. The little bit I can have done, I feel like they are my friends and Drs both extremely caring. Highly recommended! Clean, concerned for your safety and concerned for you to be comfortable.
