What is the ClearSilk Laser?
The ClearSilk is a quick facial-like procedure with no downtime that can be done any season of the year. That’s right, we can even treat your face in the middle of the Florida summer! It uses non ablative 1064 Nd:YAG technology that delivers pulses of energy to help treat various skin conditions. Examples include diffuse redness, rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, appearance of large pores, uneven skin texture, and can even help improve the appearance of scars.
How does ClearSilk help reduce the diffuse redness of rosacea or sun damaged skin?
Let’s explain diffuse redness first. This is defined as the general appearance of facial redness that some would call “rosy cheeks”. Over the years UV sun damage, as well as from the skin condition called rosacea causes dilated capillaries to appear on the cheeks, nose, and chin. These are the vessels that are not well-defined unlike the larger telangiectasias that are easy to see from 3 feet away. ClearSilk will help minimize the diffuse redness or erythema over a series of treatments and then ongoing maintenance. All with no downtime!
What areas of the skin can be treated with ClearSilk?
- Face and neck are the most common areas to be treated with ClearSilk technology.
How many treatments do I typically need with ClearSilk?
- Individual treatment results are often subtle. However, these subtle improvements add up to noticeable changes with continuous treatments. We typically recommend a series of 4 to 6 treatments for your initial series and then ongoing maintenance.
What type of improvements will I see in my skin after a ClearSilk series?
Over a series of treatments, you can expect to see your skin’s youthful glow return, as well as improving uneven skin texture caused by sun damaged and the natural aging process. Large pores will be reduced and even some minor imperfections will be diminished. Individual treatments are not that exciting, but when grouped together in a series the results can be quite exciting. And remember, all without actual downtime.
Do you numb for ClearSilk Laser?
There is no need for numbing medication for this treatment.
What is the actual procedure of ClearSilk like?
The most noticeable part of treatment in the warming or heating of the skin. Other than that, the treatment should be mildly relaxing.
What about the downtime for ClearSilk?
Nope, no downtime here! You can go back to work, school, or simply resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment. Just remember to wear sunscreen. Your skin will be a little sensitive to sunlight post treatment. Wide brimmed hats and sunscreen are all that you need. You will notice some redness to the skin afterwards. This should dissipate in a few hours.
