Laser CLARITY II, the world reference for permanent hair removal
More than 20 years ago, medical laser hair removal was a revolution in aesthetic medicine.
The CLARITY II laser from LUTRONIC had once again pushed the limits and became the new reference in the field.
With two wavelengths (Alexandrite 755nm and Nd YAG 1064nm), it makes possible the treatment of all skin types with the greatest power and speed available on the market.
A true concentrate of technology, it is the absolute weapon for clean hair-free skin.
The CLEAGE center has chosen the CLARITY II laser from LUTRONIC for its quality and safety requirements that are important for our patients.
During a laser hair removal treatment, the laser beam emitted will come into contact with the skin and transmit its heat (thermal energy) to the hair bulb, which is causing its destruction. It will prevent hair regrowth and thus permit permanent hair removal.
With its two wavelengths, all skin types can be depilated and on all areas of the body and face.
Its high frequency (2.6 Hz) will allow an unequaled speed of action and its high treatment power will result in safe and effective hair removal from the very first session.
The CLARITY II laser also has other reference indications in aesthetic medicine.
These wavelengths will make it a formidable technique in the treatment of rosacea (facial redness) but also varicosities of the lower limbs.
CLARITY II laser treatment can be performed from September to June (all year round depending on your sun exposure).
All areas of the body and face may be treated after medical examination and advice by your CLEAGE physician.
Duration of the session :
From 15 to 60 minutes, the duration of the session will depend on the chosen indication (hair removal, rosacea treatment, leg spider vein treatment) and the treatment area.
Laser hair removal:
Before starting the laser treatment, the aesthetic doctor will examine your skin in order to eliminate certain temporary contraindications preventing the laser session (tanning before the session, wound, waxing or electric depilator...)
The handpiece is placed on the area to be treated and a laser shot is then performed. The patient should feel a "rubber band" sensation, which justifies its effectiveness.
A slight redness and a slight swelling in reaction to the laser shot are observed. These are transitory and disappear very quickly in 24 to 48 hours.
The hairs are eliminated during the session or capture the energy delivered by the laser beam, continue to grow and fall out 2 to 3 weeks after the session.
The number of sessions, between 6 and 10, will depend on the area treated and your skin and hair type.
Rosacea: LUTRONIC's Clarity II Nd Yag laser treatment will treat all forms of rosacea by reducing the size of the anarchic vessels present.
2 to 4 sessions are necessary depending on the severity and stage of the rosacea.
A transient redness after the laser for 3 to 4 days and a slight swelling will be present and will disappear progressively and spontaneously to leave a healthy and radiant skin.
The session is made perfectly comfortable because of the cold air pulsed continuously on the skin, creating a local anesthesia.
Leg varicosities: The CLARITY II laser from LUTRONIC is an essential reference in the treatment of varicosities of the lower limbs. This laser will make superficial veins disappear in a painless way. Several sessions are generally necessary.
This will depend on the size and number of spider veins present on the lower limbs. The results appear immediately or a few days later depending on the type of spider veins. The session is made perfectly comfortable because of the cold air pulsed continuously on the skin, creating a local anesthesia.
To begin definitive hair removal with the CLARITY II laser, the patient must complete the puberty phase (18 to 19 years old on average) to ensure hormonal balance.
Fluctuations in hormone secretion that are still present may indeed diminish the effectiveness of medical hair removal lasers due to the strong influence of hormones on hair growth.
The treatment of rosacea (or erythro-couperose) and varicosities of the lower limbs by a laser can be undertaken from the age of 18.
Laser hair removal:
At the end of the protocol, more than 95% of the hair is permanently removed. One or two annual maintenance sessions are required afterwards to maintain the results.
A transient post-laser redness for 3 to 4 days and a slight swelling will be present and will disappear progressively and spontaneously to make way for a healthy and glowing skin.
Results appear immediately or a few days later depending on the type of spider veins.

- Pigmentary spot : from 200 CHF
- Varicosities of the lower limbs : 250 to 400 CHF
- Rosacea : 250 to 400 CHF
- Permanent hair removal : rates according to the treated area
CLARITY II laser sessions will be perfectly comfortable due to cold air pulsing continuously on the skin, creating a local anesthetic.
There is no social eviction for medical laser hair removal.
Redness and slight swelling, expected and essential for the proper treatment of rosacea or superficial varicose veins of the legs, will appear after the laser session and will disappear gradually and spontaneously in 3 to 4 days.
