Have you always struggled with pigmentation problems or felt annoyed at the sight of your facial veins?
Well, Kowayo Aesthetic is here to help with their Clarity Dual Long-Pulsed Laser Treatment!
The versatile dual long-pulsed laser treats small dilated blood vessels and vascular lesions such as birthmarks, rosacea, spider veins and varicose veins. It is called ‘long-pulsed’ because of its relatively long incidence of laser energy on the skin, giving it ample time to stimulate collagen while destroying targeted pigmentation and broken small blood vessels.
The Clarity dual laser consists of two laser wavelengths:
- NdYag 1064nm laser: used for rejuvenation, lifting and firming of the skin; stimulation of collagen as well as pore reduction
- Alexandrite 755nm laser: treatment of facial redness, hair removal, uneven skin tone and pigmentation
How does Clarity actually work?
The Clarity laser works by going deep beneath the skin to treat visible veins and pigmentation, eliminating them permanently. The laser beam travels through the skin and is converted to heat energy. When absorbed by the blood vessel or pigmentation, the problem area shrinks and eliminates it in the process. At the same time, the heat energy provided by the laser can stimulate collagen and reduce the size of your pores, resulting in a firmer and tighter face.
What conditions can be treated by Clarity?
- Rosacea/acne redness
- Facial veins/broken capillaries
- Facial hair
- Pigmentation & freckles
- Uneven skin tone
- Saggy face & dull skin
- Large pores & black heads
Clarity also removes unwanted facial hair by targeting the melanin within the hair follicle and destroying the hair at the root.
Doctor Wong will do a consultation with you to first assess your skincare needs!
Is the treatment painful?
Not at all! The Clarity is designed for maximum comfort with its built-in ‘Intelligent Cooling’ system, to make the treatment comfortable without having to use any anesthesia. With little-to-no pain, side effects or post care required, the doctor will work with you to select a treatment regimen that best meet your individual needs and to ensure that treatment is comfortable.
Personally, I experienced no pain at all, so it’s definitely a treatment that I would recommend for fast yet effective results!
Which laser wavelength should I choose? Can I choose just one of the two lasers?
The NdYag laser penetrates deeper than the Alexandrite laser and helps in firming, tightening, rejuvenation and collagen stimulation while the Alexandrite laser targets more superficial pigmentation, fixes uneven skin tones, facial hair and broken blood vessels. It is recommended to combine both laser wavelengths to achieve the best results. However, you can always opt for just one of the two lasers.
Is there any downtime or post laser care?
Clarity is designed to have no down-time. The redness and warm sensation after laser treatment is expected, which will only last for 15-30 minutes. After the procedure, you may continue with your normal skin care routine and makeup application. Some veins and pigmentation may take time to be broken down and removed by your body naturally.
This makes it perfect for a lunch time treatment, the quickie you always wanted.

How long is the procedure? How frequent do I need to repeat it?
A single laser treatment takes around 5 minutes while a dual laser treatment takes around 10-15 minutes.
Depending on how your skin reacts to the laser treatment, you can repeat the laser once every 2-4 weeks. After a few sessions, you can afford a longer duration of 1-2 months gap for maintenance phase.
