When you look in the mirror, you’re seeing new fine lines and wrinkles. What can you do if you want to avoid surgery?
Our expert medical aestheticians at A Beautiful You Medical Spa can smooth out those unsightly wrinkles with a ClearLift™ Lunchtime Lift, an innovation in laser therapy approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2012.
Why am I getting wrinkles?
Wrinkles are a normal part of aging. Your skin doesn’t produce as much natural oil as it did when you were younger. That oil kept your skin lubricated.
And fat deposits that keep cheeks plump shrink as you age. Your skin also loses some of its elasticity as the number of skin proteins declines. Your face loses volume. Sagging skin and wrinkles are the result.
Wrinkles can start as early as your mid-20s. The number of wrinkles you have depends in part on your sun exposure. Your genes also play a role. Early onset wrinkles make you look older than you are.
How does ClearLift work to reduce wrinkles?
We give you special goggles to wear to protect your eyes during the treatment. While you lie comfortably on a table, we move the handheld patented ClearLift laser device over the treatment area. Don’t worry; it’s a painless treatment.
The ClearLift laser creates microscopic wounds in the underlayers of your skin but doesn’t harm the surface layer, or epidermis. Its applicator treats delicate areas of your skin where wrinkles are forming, including around your eyes and mouth and on your neck or other target area.
Rapid pulses of laser light from the ClearLift system trigger the production of new collagen and elastin in your skin’s middle layer, the dermis, and bottom layer, the hypodermis. As your epidermis sheds old skin cells, fresh collagen covers your skin’s surface over several weeks.
This process of skin remodeling produces smoother, radiant skin with a youthful glow.
ClearLift doesn’t just smooth out your wrinkles, though. If you have dark spots and skin discoloration, scars, or stretch marks, you’ll see remarkable improvements in your skin tone as well as its texture.
Benefits of ClearLift
You don’t have to undergo painful facelift surgery to smooth out unsightly wrinkles and other facial imperfections. ClearLift is a form of skin rejuvenation that you can fit in during your lunch hour.
Chemical peels and other skin resurfacing treatments often involve weeks of recovery, producing red, flaky, scaly skin in the interim. ClearLift avoids the extended recovery time. There’s virtually no downtime.
How many ClearLift sessions do I need?
You’ll likely see a difference after one treatment. Alma®, the maker of ClearLift, recommends 2-4 treatments spaced 2-3 weeks apart for optimal results.
How soon will I see improvements in my appearance?
As with any skin remodeling procedure, be patient. You should see some differences right away and more improvements in the coming weeks. During this time, your skin produces fresh new collagen and elastin fibers to replace the old ones.
You’ll see full results about eight weeks after you’re finished with all of your sessions. Collagen production boosted by the laser treatment continues for months. Results last for about one year.
