ACLARA (for Pigment Removal)

Are you in search for a solution to clear pigmented lesions, sun spots, pigment scarring, or dark spots? Stop wasting your time and money on costly lotions and potions that promise results! Let phototherapy be the answer to your skin concern. The ACLARA photofacial will lighten and clear dark to light pigmented lesions.

How does ACLARA work?

ACLARA works by delivering quick pulses of UV light to the targeted area. Subsequently, the spot breaks up and the pigment is brought to the surface. The pigment is shed with your skin’s natural processes. As a result, a clear and uniform complexion is revealed.

Is phototherapy safe?

We use Sharplight’s Formax-VP System. Their DPC technology makes your treatments safe and effective in less time. The Sharplight system is equipped with many safety features. For instance, the hand piece features a contact cooling tip that cools the skin being treated, adding maximum comfort and protection. Above all, you can rest assured that your treatment is performed by a qualified technician with your comfort in mind.
