ClearSilk from Sciton is a quick facial-like procedure that can be done any time of year with no-downtime. It utilizes non-invasive, non ablative laser technology delivering micro-pulses of laser energy to the skin to safely, discretely and effectively treat:
Appearance of large pores
Uneven skin texture
The results are glowing complexion that keeps improving with each treatment.
WHAT IS DIFFUSE REDNESS?
Diffuse redness is appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting an appearance of general redness, not discrete, well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and it can be hereditary. ClearSilk will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
ClearSilk patients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, your doctor may suggest this therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The treatment results are often subtle, but improve with continuous treatments. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient's condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, consult your physician.
WHAT KIND OF IMPROVEMENTS CAN YOU EXPECT WITH THE CLEARSILK TREATMENT?
Over the course of four to six treatments, ClearSilk can help restore the skin youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a more even, healthy complexion as the appearance of large pores is reduced, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT BEFORE THE TREATMENT?
Before the actual ClearSilk procedure, you will be asked to remove your make up or moisturizer and, in some cases you may be asked to shave the area to be treated. You will not need gel, anaesthesia, cream or ice prior to treatment. Your Physician will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING THE PROCEDURE?
Patient often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin during the procedure as the laser hand-piece is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch above your skin.
IS THERE DOWNTIME?
No, there is no downtime with the ClearSilk treatment. You can resume your normal activities immediately. It is important to follow your physician's instructions. You may be given some skin products and instruction on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to Ultraviolet light, and you must avoid direct sun exposure. You need to fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. Consult your physician for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.
