Clarity Laser Treatment
How It Works
Because the practitioner may choose between 755nm and 1064nm wavelengths, Clarity has a big edge over other brands when it comes to laser-based therapies. This implies that every type of skin may be treated.
The laser produces precisely focused photothermal energy (light that transforms to heat) that can break up pigmented lesions, damage hair follicles, promote collagen formation, or whatever the patient’s demands are.
The laser technology we use also offers single-fibre delivery in all wavelengths and with short pulse widths to reduce pain. unappealing. To cover their spider veins, affected men and women avoid wearing certain garments (such as swimsuits and shorts) or apply a lot of makeup. People who are in good health, don’t have blood clots, and aren’t pregnant are the greatest candidates for laser vein removal.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL
The Dual Wavelength Clarity laser is highly effective and reduces hair quickly, despite its adaptability and various purposes. The therapy involves firing a brief pulse of laser light at the skin, which targets the melanin and/or vascular supply to the hair follicle. Clarity’s technology enables laser hair removal to be performed on people of all skin types and with both fair and dark hair.
PORT WINE STAINS (NEVUS FLAMMEUS)
A vascular abnormality causes a port-wine stain, which is a darkening of the human skin (a capillary malformation in the skin). Clarity can aid in the healing of skin lesions and the restoration of the skin’s natural color.

Frequently Asked Questions
The laser hair reduction treatment is approved by the FDA, who has deemed it safe. The light produced by the laser is in the infrared end of the light spectrum as opposed to the ultraviolet end. This type of light is non-carcinogenic (non-cancer causing). Lasers have been used in the medical profession for about 15 years and no long-term side effects have been reported.
Everyone’s pain threshold is different. As treatment settings vary according to individual skin and hair types, so do the levels of discomfort. The majority of people tolerate the treatment well, particularly due to our continuous deep cooling to remove heat from the follicles and surrounding tissue, so that we can treat all skin types comfortably. However we are able to provide the option of a topical anaesthetic. This will be discussed at your initial consultation.
Different body areas need a different amount of treatment. During your laser hair removal consultation we will assess the skin and hair, and plan a tailor-made programme that will offer you the best results to suit your needs.
This depends on the size of the area you are having treated and you will be advised during your consultation. The Cynosure Apogee Elite uses up to a 15mm spot size, which is of the largest in the industry. Combined with an extremely fast pulse rate an area can be treated quickly. For example, a bikini and underarm together takes under 30 minutes and larger areas such as full legs can be treated in around 30 – 40 minutes. This is significantly faster than other systems that can take two to three hours for these areas.
Do your best to avoid a suntan to the area being treated: a suntan can put your skin at risk and will make the laser treatment less effective as we may have to reduce the treatment settings or delay your treatment until the tan has faded. This also applies to sun beds and self-tanning creams. If you think you have exposed the treatment area to the sun, you are advised to book an appointment for an assessment that may include a new test patch before your next treatment. Do not apply aggravating creams to the skin before or during the course of treatment. This includes Glycolic Acid (AHA creams) and Retin-A cream. Also be sure to tell us if you have been on antibiotics, or taking any tablets for acne such as Roaccutane, for any period in the year before treatment.
