With the development of the laser equipment, more treatment options have come to rejuvenate, renew the skin and improve the skin structure. The clearlift is the latest treatment in our range and tackles skin aging without downtime. This treatment is particularly suitable for the age group 25 to 50 years. During your first visit in the salon, we look at your skin condition together with the skin therapist. From there it is determined whether the Clearlift is an effective treatment for your skin condition. In some cases, a different type of treatment can match your expectations. Here we will inform you in detail.
About our treatment
Skin aging is manifested not only in fine and deep wrinkles, but also in sagging, coagulation of the skin structure, pigmentation spots and a pale skin color. Skin aging is caused by a loss of elastin and collagen, the connective tissue fibers that provide tensile strength and firmness. The speed at which the skin ages depends on many factors, such as hereditary predisposition, lifestyle and the degree of exposure to UV radiation. Skin aging is inevitable and belongs to life. We do want to age nicely and keep the skin quality optimal.
The clearlift treats skin aging in a natural way so that the skin itself is put to work to become stronger and healthier.
Before you can undergo this treatment a consultation is necessary.
For whom is the cold laser suitable?
The cold laser ClearLift is particularly suitable for people over 30 years and older who want to work on strengthening their skin. The laser treatment stimulates the deeper skin cells to make new collagen. This runs back from your 25th birthday, after which the skin loses its firmness.
Not only the face can be treated with the ClearLift laser, also hands, the décolleté and the neck can be tackled with the laser. Because a treatment with the ClearLift laser is virtually painless, it can also be applied to sensitive parts, such as around the eyes and mouth.
How does the laser work?
The wavelength of the laser beams of the ClearLift laser treatment is 1064, but it is also possible to switch to laser beams with a wavelength of 532 nm (ideal for treating lighter spots). The ClearLift emits short but powerful light flashes. These fractioned pulses penetrate into the dermis, there give small micro-explosions and stimulate the production of fibroblasts. These fibroblasts then ensure that new collagen is produced, important for the support tissue of the skin. Unevenness is restored and the skin is lifted naturally. In addition to skin rejuvenation, the ClearLift laser can also be used for:
• Reduction of fine lines
• Improvement of a coarse skin structure and visible pores.
• Reduction of scars, such as stretch marks and post acne scars;
• Reducing uneven pigmentation, including melasma;
• The treatment of rosacea and broken capillaries;
• Reduction of cellulite, also called orange peel;
• Removal of tattoos
The therapist passes on the suitability for the laser and any risk factors. The ClearLift laser can be used on almost all skin types, even during the summer months. 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after a treatment, however, you are advised not to go in direct sunlight with your face. The rest of your body, always protect with a good sun protection from SPF30.
During the treatment
Protective glasses should be worn during treatment. The skin is cleaned. After the scanner is placed on your skin, the patient feels warm pulses on the skin. This way we treat the entire area very accurately. The treatment itself is painless. Your skin will turn slightly red during treatment. A treatment lasts about 20 minutes.
There is no downtime, the skin will feel slightly warmer and we treat this with a cooling after-treatment cream, and possibly some camouflage. After the treatment you may simply shower again and use products. You stay out of the sun for 4 weeks after the treatment.
The process of collagen formation takes time. After a minimum of three months, you can only see the final effect of the treatment. The new tissue that is created by the skin will not disappear over time, so the results are permanent. Of course, the aging process of the skin can not be stopped and you will have to maintain the result.
If you want to completely eliminate expression wrinkles (such as frown wrinkles and forehead wrinkles), botox or fillers are eligible.
