How does ClearSilk® work?
ClearSilk® heats up the dermis and stimulates fibroblasts which encourages 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 a certain amount of time, this is what activates the repair process and gives the skin a fresh new glow.
How many sessions do I need?
