Clarity Laser Treatment
How It Works
Clarity has a huge advantage over other brands due to its larger range of laser-based treatments because the practitioner has the option of 755nm or 1064nm wavelengths. This means that any skin type can be treated.
The correct wavelength is chosen to suit the patient’s needs, and the laser delivers precisely targeted photothermal energy (light that turns to heat) that can break up pigmentation lesions, destroy hair follicles, stimulate collagen production or whatever is required.
Clarity also offers single-fibre delivery with nine spot sizes ranging up to 20mm – in both wavelengths, in short pulse widths to minimise discomfort. unattractive. Affected men and women tend to avoid certain clothes (such as swimsuits and shorts) or use a lot of makeup to attempt to hide their spider veins. Laser vein removal is best for people who have overall good health, don’t have blood clots, and aren’t pregnant.

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.
