CLARITY II™ InnerLIFT™
( LASER GENESIS )
All Skin Types
Quick treatments
No Down Time

Do you ever look in the mirror and notice loose, sagging skin on your face, neck or chest?   The Clarity II™ InnerLIFT treatment utilizes a long-pulsed Nd:YAG 1064nm laser technology that tightens lax skin by emitting a beam of light that bypasses the surface of the skin ( making it safe for all skin types ) and deposits sufficient heat deep into the dermis. This process remodels the existing collagen fibers while stimulating the growth of new collagen. The Nd: YAG technology is best-known for its ability to tighten skin better than radio frequency (RF) and infrared (IR) devices such as Thermage®. The Clarity II™ emits a cryogen coolant spray which provides the most comfortable treatment of any skin tightening laser today and is far superior to coolant gels or contact chilled tips.

The new dermal collagen that is produced becomes part of the structure of the treated skin, and thus Clarity II™ InnerLIFT Laser Skin Tightening can produce improvements in skin which lasts for years. Clarity II™ InnerLIFT skin tightening is so powerful that new collagen production can continue several months after the treatment. Most people report improvement immediately, with even more dramatic results weeks later. New collagen growth results in continued skin tightening and the development of a more youthful complexion with fewer lines, folds, and looseness of the skin.

A series of treatments will significantly reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and tighten sagging skin. You will start to notice a difference after just one treatment with optimal skin tightening results typically occur about 3-6 months after treatment. Your practitioner at Avissa Skin will customize this treatment to fit your specific skin care needs. Over the next several months, the natural process of collagen production will continue to regenerate. This process is a direct result of your treatments, a gift for your skin that keeps on giving. We recommend a series of 4-6 treatments 4-6 weeks apart. After each treatment, the benefits of the earlier treatments are amplified, and results are becoming increasingly apparent.

Combine this treatments with other cosmetic services such as facials, chemical peels, LaseMD Ultra™ Resurfacing, RF microneedling, dermal fillers, and Botox® and you will have intensified your results, leaving your skin looking noticeably younger, firmer and revitalized. Your confidence will soar; others will start complimenting how refreshed you look, yet they can’t quite put their finger on why. Shhh! It will be our secret!

What is Laser Skin Tightening?
Clarity II™ InnerLIFT Laser Skin Tightening is a series of laser treatments, using the Clarity II™ Nd:YAG 1064nm laser, designed to stimulate dermal collagen production and regeneration of damaged skin cells. The single-wavelength light energy produced by the Clarity II™ InnerLIFT targets fibroblasts in the dermis, which produce new collagen in response to laser energy. Increased turnover of skin cells is also stimulated, helping to regenerate and replace damaged cells.

Will I have to take time from work or my children to recover?
No. There is no downtime or external injury to the skin. You can return to work or reapply makeup immediately following the procedure. The full face and neck can be treated in just one hour.

How long will the results last?
The new dermal collagen that is produced becomes part of the structure of the treated skin, and thus Laser Skin Tightening can produce improvements in skin which lasts for years. Clarity II™ InnerLIFT skin tightening is so powerful that new collagen production can continue several months after the treatment. Most people report improvement immediately, with even more dramatic results weeks later. New collagen growth results in continued skin tightening and the development of a more youthful complexion with fewer lines, folds, and looseness of the skin.

Are there other skin tightening laser systems?
A:
Other laser systems have been developed that are designed to stimulate dermal collagen production; however none have been demonstrated to be as effective as the Clarity II™ Nd:YAG 1064nm. The Clarity II™ has more watts of power than any other skin tightening laser, and is therefore more effective in generating new collagen.

Is Clarity II™ InnerLIFT Laser Skin Tightening effective for both the face and body?
Yes. Clarity II™ InnerLIFT Skin Tightening can be used to treat any part of the body that may benefit from softer, smoother skin quality, wrinkle reduction, improvement of pore size and texture, or elimination of acne scars. The Clarity II™ InnerLIFT can provide beautiful firm skin on the face, neck, chest, upper arms, legs and other body areas with no downtime and without the need for potentially dangerous numbing creams.

How many treatments would I have to have?
Clinical studies suggest that 4-6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart in most cases will produce a significant increase in dermal collagen, remodeling of dermal matrix components, and a resulting improvement in overall skin tone and vitality.

Complimentary consultations are provided to determine if you are a candidate for Clarity II™ InnerLIFT Laser Skin Tightening.

Compliance with the recommended pre / post care instructions as well as recommended follow-up visits by your practitioner are crucial for the success of your treatment and to prevent unnecessary side effects or complications. It is your responsibility to inform your practitioner of any changes in medical history, medications, and most recent sun exposure before each treatment is performed.

Before Your Treatment

          • You may not be pregnant or lactating.
          • Patients who have used Accutane or similar products within the last 6 months CANNOT be treated.
          • Discontinue the use of any topical products that may be drying or irritating (e.g. AHAs, BHAs, retinoids) 3-7 days prior.
          • Avoid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for at least 3 days prior. These actions may interfere with the natural inflammatory process critical to proper healing and skin rejuvenation.
          • Avoid taking any blood-thinning agents for 3 – 7 days prior unless otherwise prescribed by your physician.
          • Avoid unprotected sun exposure, or tanning for at least 2 weeks prior to your procedure. Always use an SPF 30 or higher containing zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide for proper sun protection.
          • Avoid other aesthetic procedures and cosmetic injections in the area(s) to be treated for 2 weeks before and after.
          • If you are prone to cold sores, it is recommended to take antiviral medication for 7 days before and after.
          • Stay hydrated by drinking 8+ glasses of water daily to improve results & healing time.


Day of Treatment

          • Arrive with clean skin free of any lotion, oil, makeup, powder, or sunscreen.
          • Notify your practitioner of any changes in your medication, or health status, or personal activities that may be relevant to your treatment.
          • Topical numbing using ice packs may be used to maximize your comfort during the treatment.


After Your Treatment


What to Expect:

          • Patients will experience mild to moderate erythema (redness), edema (swelling), or a warm stinging / sunburn-like sensation for several days post-treatment, however for more aggressive treatments, these symptoms may last longer than 3 days.
          • Other possible skin reactions include irritation, itching, and general sensitivity, which may last for 3 or more days.
          • Results are both immediate and progressive. Multiple treatments may be required to achieve individually desired results.
          • Commonly patients experience purging of water retention caused by swelling and impurities in the form of water blisters or acne breakouts. This is normal and should resolve within a few days.


48 Hour Care:

          • DO NOT wear Makeup for at least 48 hours.
          • Avoid all strenuous activity for a minimum of 48 hours as sweating increases infection risk.
          • DO NOT USE ICE on the treatment area. DO NOT use any anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These actions may interfere with the natural inflammatory process critical to proper healing and skin rejuvenation.
          • DO NOT pick, scratch, excessively rub or scrub the treatment area. It is imperative to allow natural healing to minimize post-treatment complications. Treat the skin gently as if you have a sunburn.


General Care: 

          • Care should be taken to prevent trauma to the treated area especially for the first few days after your procedure.
          • You may take Tylenol for post-treatment discomfort or Benadryl / Zyrtec if you experience excessive itching (histamine reaction).
          • Avoid All Direct & Indirect Sun Exposure.
          • Always use an SPF 30 or higher containing zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide for proper sun protection. It is safe to begin the use of SPF starting 24-48 hours after your treatment.
          • Do not have any other treatments for at least 1 – 2 weeks following treatment or until the skin has completely healed.
          • Your practitioner will make individual recommendations on when to resume normal skincare (typically after 2 days).
          • Keep the treated area well hydrated (specifically for the first 2 days).


If you experience any side effects, such as prolonged redness or swelling, histamine reaction, blisters, burns, or signs of infection please contact your practitioner immediately for proper assessment and further care instructions.
