Skin Rejuvenation Q & A
What is skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment aimed at improving the appearance and health of your skin. Whether from too much time in the sun, the general effects of aging, or your genetics, your skin tone and texture may not be quite what you want.
The team at DERMABARE want nothing more than for you to feel good on the inside and out and offer laser skin rejuvenation with the Alma™ Harmony XL.
This advanced laser tool is equipped with an Advanced Fluorescent Technology (AFT) Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) applicator that directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at your skin to remove the damage layer by layer.
The laser rejuvenation system at DERMABARE is also equipped with ClearLift™, which is a high-speed roller used for non-ablative skin resurfacing, which means it doesn’t damage the surface of your skin, so there’s no downtime, as well as a Pixel laser for deeper anti-aging treatments.
ClearLift™ uses non-ablative 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.
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 Dermabare 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:
- Use sunscreen
- Moisturize liberally
- Apply cold compresses as needed
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.

Pixel significantly improves overall skin tone, elasticity and texture, increases moisture content, and reduces superficial pigmentation and pore size. The multiple pixel configuration allows for deeper penetration and higher powered ablation, yielding enhanced results. The treatment mechanism of the laser promotes faster healing and tissue regeneration.
What beauty concerns benefit from skin rejuvenation?
The luxurious medical spa offers skin rejuvenation to improve the look and tone of your skin. Some of the beauty concerns that benefit from the advanced cosmetic treatment include:
- Pigmented and vascular lesions
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne & Scars from acne
- Rough skin texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
The energy created by the laser also stimulates the cells in your skin to produce more collagen, which is the protein that gives your skin its youthful strength and flexibility. The energy assists in the rejuvenation and remodeling of your skin to improve overall appearance and tone.
What can I expect during skin rejuvenation treatments?
Your skin rejuvenation treatments are conducted in a relaxed spa-like setting at the luxurious DERMABARE office.
Although skin rejuvenation causes minimal discomfort, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your skin before your treatment begins.
Once you’re ready, your aesthetic specialist at DERMABARE begins your skin rejuvenation treatment. The length of your treatment may depend on your beauty concern you’re receiving and may range from 30-90 minutes.
There’s no downtime following your skin rejuvenation, and you can return to your usual day afterward. The team recommends you apply sunblock daily to protect your skin as it heals.
You may notice an improvement in your skin soon after your first treatment, with continued improvement over the next several weeks. To get the best results from your skin rejuvenation, you may need more than one treatment.
