Clarity II FAQ
Clarity II is an FDA-approved laser that is safe for nearly all skin types with much less discomfort than other laser treatments.
A good candidate for Clarity II is someone with excess facial or body hair (all skin types including dark skin), pigmentation, wrinkles, rosacea or other skin conditions.
The duration of one Clarity II session can about 15 minutes for pigmentation. A skin rejuvenation treatment can take up to 30min.
Clarity II has a built-in cooling system that is activated after each laser pulse. This will help to protect the skin by reducing the heat and maintaining a comfortable temperature. The applicator also has a combination of bigger spot-size and quick-pulse technology to ensure that the treatment is fast with little discomfort.
There is no downtime with Clarity II since it is a non-ablative laser with lower intensities. You may have some redness which will go away in a few hours. You may resume normal activities and apply makeup immediately after. Avoid being heavily exposed to the sun for about 2 weeks before and after treatment.
The number of treatment sessions depends on the severity of your pigmentation or skin conditions. Simple freckles or small veins only need 1-2 sessions. Treatments for hair removal usually require 5 or more sessions.
