The ultimate lunchtime facelift for even the most delicate skin…

  • Little or no recovery time
  • Minimal risk of infection or scarring
  • Very natural-looking results….these top the list of reasons why a non-surgical approach to skin tightening and rejuvenation are in such high demand. The doctors at Skinlogic find that in many instances, the non-surgical approach may be the most desirable for several reasons.

With amazing results, the Harmony ClearLift Q Switched Laser is already a huge hit in Hollywood. Because it works deep underneath the skin’s surface to renew collagen, it leaves no visible redness.

ClearLift is best utilized on the fine lines around the eyes and mouth, but can also be used on the upper cheek area and the forehead.

Patients report instant results that see them looking plumper, firmer, and rejuvenated.  Collagen can be continually renewed, so a course of treatments will get your skin looking more youthful and rejuvenated without the need for painful surgery.

The Clearlift laser works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations, but the skin around each of these perforations remains intact. This allows your skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly, which significantly improves your complexion. It provides noticeable results, often in as little as a single treatment.

Areas that can be treated include the face, neck, decollete and hands.

How does Clearlift work?

In more detail, the Pixel® laser light passes through patented optics to penetrate the intact skin surface creating tiny thermal channels, of micro-injury, without disturbing the skin or surrounding tissue. These micro-injury sites (about 15-20 percent of the treatment area) start the process of healing. As collagen remodels, skin tightens. The intact, undamaged skin over the treatment site promotes quicker healing for a fast recovery – treat today then back to work – no one will know!

If you’ve considered laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasion or deep chemical peels, but hesitated because of the extended recovery time, the Clearlift Fractional Laser Facelift is right solution for you. It provides similar dramatic results through a superior technology with minimal risks and a rapid healing time.

Am I a good Clearlift candidate?

Anyone whose skin shows signs of aging is a candidate for Clearlift. The most dramatic results are seen on people who have tried non-invasive therapies and are looking for something more aggressive but without the pain and down-time. The best candidates have moderate sun damage, are in good health, have good health habits and typically take good care of their skin.

What conditions do Clearlift treat?

  • Tightens “crepey” or lax skin (anywhere on the body)
  • Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces the need for Botox and Fillers
  • Shrinks the appearance of pores
  • Lightens dark under eye circles
  • Fungal nail infection*

*The ClearLift Q-Switched Laser is an excellent treatment for fungal infections. It’s specially designed to shine through the nail and destroy only the pathogens embedded in and under your nail causing the infection without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin.  

Is it safe on all skin types?

Yes, Clearlift can be safely performed on all skin types at any time of the year. In general, Clearlift treatments are safe and effective for everyone.  You can expect your skin to have very minimal redness that is short-lived after the treatment. You may be offered a tinted sunscreen following your treatment.

How long will the treatment take?

Clearlift treatments usually take 60 minutes per area or longer, depending on the size of the treatment area and the intensity of the treatment. Your exact treatment regimen will depend on your individual consultation and the area(s) you wish to have treated.

Will it hurt?

No. Most people experience a pleasant warmth during the treatment. Occasionally there may be a snapping sound as the laser head is moved from area to area but that is entirely painless and without consequence.

Will I need a touch-up later?

While Clearlift will give you a very good improvement in your skin tone, we can’t stop the ageing process.

This will require a consultation to evaluate your overall health including your nutrition and health habits, hormones, etc. However, depending on your starting point and your lifestyle following your treatment, your new look can last many months or longer. We recommend that you practice good skin care to maintain your results.

Good skin care includes avoiding excessive sun and UV exposure. Conscientious skin care extends the effects of your skin renewal and collagen remodelling, maximizing the benefits of your fractional treatment and will ultimately increase the length of time between maintenance sessions.

For most patients, a touch-up treatment every 6- 12 months, depending on your health and lifestyle, helps to maintain a healthy glow.

  • Make-up, perfume or deodorant should be removed from the treatment area prior to your appointment time
