Laser Hair Removal

With Clarity II, laser hair removal is finally available to all skin tones and most hair colors

Tired of shaving, waxing or plucking? Looking for a more effective and lasting remedy for unwanted hair?

Laser hair removal has long been the go-to solution for reducing hair on the face and body, but it did not offer an optimal experience or results. Dr. Burns previously did not offer laser hair removal because of its ineffectiveness, slow speed, pain of treatment and lack of ability to treat people of color and fine hair. We waited to bring laser hair removal to Resurrect Skin MD until there was a technology that addressed and eliminated those obstacles.

Our wish came true with the Clarity II from Lutronic, which utilizes the optimal laser wavelengths couples with cryogen cooling to provide more comfort and safety for all skin types, in a delivery system that is super fast and can treat backs and abdomens in minutes without the need for messy gel. We firmly believe that our patients deserve only the best technologies that have been proven effective, safe and worth the investment — and in the case of laser hair removal, Clarity II meets those demands.

What Is the Clarity II Laser by Lutronic?

Clarity II is a high-powered dual-wavelength laser platform that offers speedy hair removal with minimal discomfort. With this revolutionary device, our providers can treat areas much faster than with other leading laser hair removal treatments. Treatments are comfortable, highly customizable and achieve superior results (especially for light and/or thin hair that is challenging to treat with other devices).

The Clarity II laser works by targeting the melanin in hair. The light energy is absorbed by the melanin and transforms into heat, which quickly builds up and damages the hair follicles. The controlled injury to the treated follicles renders them inactive for many years, if not permanently.

The Clarity II platform includes both a long-pulsed 755nm Alexandrite laser and a 1064nm Nd: YAG laser. This combination allows us to adjust the treatment to varying hair colors and skin tones to maximize effectiveness while minimizing the risk of skin damage or discoloration. The 1064nm wavelength coupled with the cryogen cooling makes the Clarity II the safest and most effective hair removal laser for treating people of color.

What Are the Most Popular Areas for Laser Hair Removal?

Most areas of the body can be treated if desired, but the following areas are most commonly requested by our patients:

  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Chest
  • Back

Am I a Good Candidate for Clarity II Laser Hair Removal?

Historically, laser hair removal has worked best for individuals with fair skin and dark, coarse hair. Light hair does not contain enough melanin for most lasers to “see” the pigment in the hair, and darker skin tones were at risk because the lasers might target the melanin in the skin rather than the hair. The Clarity II can deliver greater power in super short pulse widths. These two attributes are key in treating these thinner hairs and are unique to the Clarity II.

Clarity II is presently one of the few lasers considered safe for dark skin. In part, this is because providers can choose between two wavelengths: 755nm Alexandrite for lighter skin tones and 1064nm Nd:YAG for darker skin tones. This gives us much greater control over each patient’s treatment, ensuring it is effective and safe. Additionally, the included cryogen cooling ensures all skin tones are treated with greater safety and comfort.

Clarity II also allows us to treat a broader range of hair colors. As long as the hair is darker than the surrounding skin, we can likely treat it. Very light blonde, grey and white hair are the only colors the laser cannot detect.

What Should I Expect During My Treatment?

We love the ease and speed of the Clarity II laser. All you need to do is relax in a comfortable position, and the laser and your provider will take care of the rest!

Clarity II is more powerful than other devices on the market, but discomfort is minimized by the cold spray of cryogen both before and after the laser energy is delivered to the hair follicle. The system includes two built-in cooling mechanisms: traditional air cooling and a cryogenic spray that instantly cools the treated skin. The device also has temperature sensing for continuous real-time skin temperature feedback.

The Clarity II can treat an area in significantly less time than other lasers thanks to its adjustable, large spot size (essentially, the diameter of the light emitted). Increasing the spot size for larger areas allows us to treat more follicles with fewer passes of the laser. Larger spot sizes also allow deeper penetration, which ensures a more thorough treatment of the target (the hair bulb) located deeper in the skin.

A hair reduction treatment can last as little as five minutes for a small area (e.g., the upper lip) but it is speedy for larger areas like the back. Such areas can often be treated in 30 minutes in most cases but might require 45 minutes for larger men.

What Is the Recovery Like After Laser Hair Removal?

Our Dallas laser hair removal treatments have no required downtime and minimal aftercare instructions. Side effects may include mild redness or swelling in the treated area(s) for a few hours, and some patients experience slight irritation, tenderness or dryness.

Laser treatments can increase the photosensitivity of your skin temporarily. Therefore, it is important to avoid sun exposure and apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to prevent skin damage for 24 hours post-treatment.

There are no restrictions on bathing except to treat your skin gently for the first 24 hours. Keep it hydrated with a non-comedogenic moisturizer and skip harsh products and ingredients (like retinol or acids). You may resume your regular skincare routine once any post-treatment irritation resolves.

What Are the Expected Results From Clarity II Laser Hair Removal?

Clarity II delivers better results, faster. Whereas older lasers could require 10 or more sessions to achieve optimal results, we see patients who are happy with their results after three to four sessions with the Clarity II. The number of treatments necessary varies with hair type, skin type, density of hairs and overall patient variability and will be discussed during your consultation. Treatments are typically spaced six to eight weeks apart.

Your skin can remain hair-free for years to come once all the follicles in the area have been treated. Should you experience regrowth at any point, touch-up treatments can be scheduled. The most important thing you can do to ensure you get great results is to complete the full recommended series of treatments.

"I have worked with many lasers over the course of my career, and I am genuinely impressed with the Clarity II. It’s quick, it’s safe, it’s effective and it gives us truly great results. We believe it’s worth the hype and we’re excited to have it at RSMD."
