After identifying the areas of treatment, our Aesthetician will begin by gently cleansing the problem areas.
Then the treatment starts by moving the laser unit directly over the problem areas. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin during the procedure as the laser handpiece is moved back and forth about a 1/2 an inch above your skin. Once the process is complete the areas are covered in a moisturizing cream.
The typical treatment last about 45 minutes (unless additional areas are requested) and has minimal discomfort.

How Does It Work?
ClearSilk is a treatment with zero downtime that is suitable for all Fitzpatrick skin types. It works by depositing heat energy deep within the dermis targeting multiple chromophores.
As the heat rises slowly to the target temperature, it causes bulk heating encouraging the bodies natural response to clear pigment, reduce vascularity and improve the overall appearance of tissue.
The result is a glowing complexion that keeps
improving with each treatment.
What areas can be treated?
A ClearSilk patient typically sees excellent results over their entire face and neck. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.
How many treatments do I need?
On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results.
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 care products and instructions 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.
How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?
The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.
Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.
How does incontinence relate to age?
Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.
Why should I care about my bladder control problem?
People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
