The Clarity laser is made by Lutronic to deliver dual-wavelength energy. This laser includes long-pulsed 755nm Alexandrite wavelengths as well as 1064nm Nd: YAG laser energy. This combination may be especially advantageous for people with darker skin. Each wavelength can be adjusted to varying skin types and hair colours to maximize effectiveness and minimize the risk of skin damage and discoloration.
How the Clarity Technology Works:
Laser hair reduction and removal rely on photothermolysis, the scientific principle that involves the transference of particular wavelengths of laser light into heat energy. Clarity delivers its Alexandrite and Nd: YAG wavelengths into hair follicles, where these light energies are absorbed by the melanin in strands of hair. Here, light transforms into heat. Thermal energy quickly builds up in hair follicles, causing controlled damage to the walls of the follicles, the dermal papillae, and the stem cells that are involved in hair growth in the targeted area. The incremental damage to treated hair follicles renders them inactive for many years, if not indefinitely.
What Are the Benefits of Clarity over Other Laser Hair Removal Options?
The Clarity laser hair removal system has two distinct wavelengths (755 nm Alexandrite Laser & 1064 nm Nd: YAG Laser) that make this device capable of treating a wide range of skin colours and tones. One wavelength 755 nm is suitable for lighter skin and the other 1064 nm is great for darker skin. Experts agree that this laser is an excellent option even for darker skin types because the longer wavelength of laser light passes through the skin to target melanin in the hair shaft without affecting the epidermis.
How Long Is the Clarity Laser Procedure?
An average hair reduction session at our clinic lasts approximately 30 min to 45 min. The session may increase or decrease in time based on the size of the treatment area and the number of areas treated in one appointment.
Is the Treatment Painful?
The Clarity II Laser features a built-in cooling mechanism that activates after each laser pulse. This cooling feature dissipates heat and protects the skin while also maintaining optimal comfort. The device applicator also has a large spot-size (25 mm) and quick-pulse technology that work together to expedite the effects of treatment so each session is quick and comfortable.
Is the Clarity Laser safe?
Laser hair removal is a safe and well-studied technique of getting rid of unwanted hair for good. Safety and satisfaction are two of our primary goals in providing laser hair removal services. Therefore, the devices that we add to our selection are vetted thoroughly for results with as few side effects as possible. In general, the side effects of laser hair removal typically include mild redness and a sunburned sensation that last approximately 24 to 48 hours. More intense complications such as blistering are rare.
