Five Benefits of Eliminating Wrinkles with ClearLift

Do you have fine lines or wrinkles that bother you? Associates in Women’s Health may have the answer for you: ClearLift™. There are several good reasons to consider having this fast, effective procedure. Here are five of them.

ClearLift uses nonablative laser technology

There are two types of laser technology used in skin resurfacing procedures: ablative and nonablative. Ablative lasers remove layers of skin, and are sometimes called wounding lasers. Nonablative lasers, such as ClearLift, stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin without wounding.

The laser delivers heat energy beneath your skin in tiny columns called microthermal treatment zones. Some old cells are eliminated and collagen production is heightened, but the outer surface layer of your skin, called the epidermis, is unaffected. ClearLift treatments are extremely precise.

It’s called the lunch break facelift

In addition to its ability to lessen the appearance of wrinkles, one of the most appealing aspects of ClearLift is the fact that it’s fast — hence the nickname “the lunch break facelift.” Although it’s not an actual facelift, in most cases ClearLift does take less than an hour, and it does deliver exceptional results. Usually, a ClearLift treatment takes 20-25 minutes.

It’s not a traditional facelift, because that’s generally a surgical procedure that involves pulling your skin and the underlying musculature tighter. Skin resurfacing with a ClearLift treatment involves using laser energy to treat the deeper layers of skin to stimulate new growth and rejuvenation.

Less discomfort

Many cosmetic procedures involve a certain amount of discomfort. For example, a chemical peel may cause a slight burning sensation, and ablative laser treatments can leave some swelling and discomfort. ClearLift treatments are virtually painless.

Most people report no more than a slight tingling sensation, but if you’re uncomfortable at all, your provider at Associates of Women’s Health can use a topical anesthetic or a cooling technique during the procedure. The goal is to keep you comfortable while improving your appearance.

No recovery necessary

There are a few things you’ll need to do after a ClearLift treatment:

However, what you won’t need to do is take a few days off from work to recover. Your face might be slightly red, but you can cover it with makeup and immediately resume your normal activities.

You’ll have brighter, healthier-looking skin

The best reason to get ClearLift treatments is that you’ll have noticeably improved skin. Wrinkles will be smoothed, and your skin will look plumper and younger.

Although you may need several treatments to get optimal results, you’ll most likely be able to see a difference in just one treatment. And, you’ll continue to notice improvement in the days and weeks following treatment, as your body produces more collagen.
