LASER - CLEARLIFT
Alma Harmony XL Pro Clearlift handpiece is a state-of-the-art multifunctional Q-switched ND-YAG laser that stimulates your body’s natural collagen.
It delivers results with no downtime, no pain and no injury to the surface of the skin.
Clearlift uses acoustic soundwaves which means it is gentle enough to treat the most delicate areas on the Face, Neck, Décolleté, around the eyes and even the lip area while minimising the risk of hypopigmentation that you may get with other heat based lasers. Clearlift delivers clearer, firmer & plumper skin and skin tightening.
What can Clearlift treat?
Clearlift treats or can help with a variety of different concerns such as;
• Fine Lines & Wrinkles
• Photo-damage / Sun-damage
• Uneven skin tone
• Skin Laxity
• Vascular issues on the face (such as Rosacea)
• Pore size
• Pigmentation and Melasma
• Dark scars
• Crow’s feet
• Smokers lines around the mouth
• Dark circles
• Breakdown of unwanted facial filler
How does Clearlift work?
Clearlift causes tiny microinjuries to the Epidermis (the top layer of skin) and Dermis (the second layer of skin containing glands, follicles and collagen fibres amongst other things). These tiny micro injuries caused by the fractionated laser will cause the skin to repair itself. This action of repairing is what stimulates new collagen. Using a fractionated laser such as the ND-YAG 1064nm lessens the risk of scarring significantly. New collagen will improve the look of wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, pore size and help to lift and tighten the skin.
The Clearlift handpiece has a variety of tip attachments which enable your laser therapist to target areas of concern. We can treat superficial concerns, but with a tip that works on a deeper level we are able to treat concerns that lie in the deeper layers of the dermis too!
Clearlift is effective at treating pigmentation issues such as sun damage and Melasma, which can be a hard concern to treat with other lasers as Melasma can be stimulated by heat. Clearlift uses acoustic soundwaves, which break down pigment without using heat and stimulating the condition further. Q- switched 1064nm Clearlift has been proven to be effective at treating Melasma in the long term.
Is Clearlift painful and what are the side effects?
It is a very gentle, but very effective treatment. You will feel a slight snapping on the skin as the laser is applied and skin is treated but this is not painful. You may have a slight erythema (redness of the skin) if you are especially sensitive but this is not very common.
There are no known side effects and Clearlift is a very safe treatment to have if you are suitable for the treatment. You will be invited to attend a consultation where your therapist will make sure you are a suitable candidate.
How many sessions do I need?
We offer individual treatments but for best results we recommend a course of 6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. Clearlift can deliver good results after your first session but it is especially effective in the long term, making it a beneficial treatment in the prevention of ageing, as well as for targeting specific concerns. It will continue working long after your course has finished and best results can be seen after 2 months.
What is the treatment like?
You will first attend a consultation where you will fill out the necessary forms and you’re practitioner will answer any questions you may have about the treatment. A patch test will be performed so you can feel what the treatment is like and your practitioner can also see whether you are suitable for treatment and what settings will give you the best result.
After your consultation you will need to wait 24 – 48 hours and then you can have your first treatment.
During the first treatment, the area will be cleaned thoroughly, and you will be given protective goggles to wear. Clearlift treatment can last anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour as we have significant control over the areas we can treat. During your consultation your laser therapist will let you know how long your treatment will be. If you have a particular concern, such as crow’s feet, your practitioner may spend a bit more time treating this area. The treatment is very flexible, so we can cater to your needs.
At the end of the treatment, your practitioner may apply Aloe Vera or other products suitable to your skin type such as a hydrating serum or moisturiser. We will always apply an SPF 50.
What do I need to do after?
As Clearlift is a gentle treatment there is not much that you need to do after your treatment. You can cleanse your face as normal, avoid exfoliation for the first 24 hours to avoid overstimulating the area, stay out of direct sun and wear an SPF.
This treatment can be combined with other treatments on the Harmony XL Pro system for better results if necessary. Your Laser Therapist will be happy to talk you through the options available and tailor make a treatment plan for you.
