What is ClearSilk®?
ClearSilk® is a non-ablative 1064 NdYAG laser that can be utilized to treat unwanted diffuse redness, rosacea, inflammation of acne, reduces discoloration of scars, both surgical and non-surgical. In addition to treating redness, ClearSilk® is also a “go-to” treatment for correcting hyperpigmentation, uneven skin texture, minimizing the appearance of pores and tightens the skin. Treatment is safe for all skin types and can also be done year around. Patients do not have any downtime and may resume daily activities immediately following treatment.
How does ClearSilk® work?
How many sessions do I need?
ClearSilk® heats up the dermis and stimulates fibroblasts which stimulates the body’s natural repair process resulting in a decrease in fine lines, wrinkles, diffuse redness, and revitalizes the skin. By keeping the skin heated up at a desired temperature for certain amount of time, this is what activates the repair process and gives the skin a fresh new glow.
Depending on the individuality of each skin condition, it is recommended that 3-6 sessions one month apart will deliver results. ClearSilk® can also be combined with other treatment options on the same day in order to maximize your results.
What is ClearV®?
ClearV® is a 1064nm Nd:YAG laser that effectively and safely targets and treats facial and body blood vessels, spider veins and broken capillaries. ClearV® is also appropriate for treatment of other unwanted vascular lesions such as Venous Lakes, port wine satins, cherry and spider angiomas, and periorbital veins. By applying targeted heat to stimulate the body’s natural processes of healing, it clears away vascular imperfections on the face and body.
How many ClearV® treatments will I need?
The majority of results are seen after 3 sessions about 4-6 weeks apart. A series of treatments is always recommended.
Is there any downtime for ClearV®?
Though downtime is very minimal, the goal of treatment is to simulate the blood within the vascular lesion. Expect redness and darkening of the lesions, veins may have the appearance of a “cat scratch.” Depending on the size and surface are of the treatment site, you may also experience the sensation of a mild sunburn for about an hour after treatment.
Today we are excited to offer the most comprehensive menu of laser treatments available in the Puget Sound Region using our state-of-the-art Sciton Profile™ Laser system.
For those wanting simple tightening and smoothing of wrinkles, age spots, traumatic scars and acne scars without resurfacing and with little to no down time, we can use the revolutionary, state-of-the-art ProFractional® laser. The ProFractional® uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin.
Since only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser at one time, healing is quick and downtime is short. In addition, besides the face just about any area of the body can be treated with the ProFractional® laser, including the neck, chest and hands!
For those with deep wrinkles and extensive sun damage, Dr. Stern uses state-of-the-art lasers to rejuvenate the skin through laser resurfacing. In treating a mild to moderate amount of facial sagging, these lasers may be the preferable treatment over a face lift. Not only can wrinkles and sun damage be reduced or eliminated, but the skin tightens simultaneously. The healing process takes about 10 days, with glowing skin becoming more attractively tighter and smoother.
