The Safest Laser for Summer: ClearSilk Laser Facial in Wayzata

Once the summer months roll around, many of us focus more on our skin. While winter months can be a great time to work on improving and maintaining your skin, we often think more about it in the warm weather, as we are not as bundled-up and more skin is exposed. If you want to put your best skin forward, we have multiple laser facial options for all types of skin conditions, regardless of season, age or concern.  

Here is some information on our favorite laser facials in Wayzata at Vively Body Science. Learn about the technology behind the treatments, their benefits, frequently asked questions, and more.


ClearSilk is a non-ablative skin treatment in Wayzata that is safe for all Fitzpatrick skin types, and it’s unique as a laser facial because it is also safe for use in the summer. Most skin laser treatments require time before and after without exposure to the sun. Here in Minnesota, our warm, sunny, summer months are too precious and short to give up for these treatments!

ClearSilk is a gentle laser facial that is excellent at targeting redness and other discoloration issues. It helps to reduce the appearance of multiple chromophores (the molecules that produce the color in skin), as well as safely administering heat energy that will address many other concerns, including: 

  • Skin laxity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Redness & flushing
  • Rosacea
  • Improved Luminosity
  • Acne Scars
  • Skin revitalization

The benefits of a ClearSilk laser facial in Wayzata


ClearSilk is a versatile treatment that targets many skin concerns with one single solution. It is fantastic for those who want to get great results with one treatment type.

No patient downtime

There is also no downtime required for a ClearSilk treatment. You can easily resume your daily routine after a treatment for an easy process that fits into your busy schedule. 

Safe for all skin types & safe for the summer

As noted earlier, ClearSilk is suitable for all Fitzpatrick skin types, making it an accessible option for treating many skin concerns for most patients.

Where most laser facial treatments will make your skin significantly more sensitive to the sun, ClearSilk is the only laser facial that is safe to get during these months because the surface of the skin remains intact and melanin is not the target of the energy. Other laser treatments disrupt the epidermis, allowing for greater exposure to the damaging UV rays and increased sensitivity without extreme caution. 

Both of these benefits make ClearSilk highly unique when compared to other laser treatments.


ClearSilk requires no downtime because it is a non-invasive procedure, meaning that it is non-surgical. There are no incisions required for this skin revitalizing treatment!

The technology behind ClearSilk

Non-ablative laser

Many treatments use ablative lasers in order to generate heat and correct skin issues. The drawback of ablative lasers is that they are more aggressive and necessitate downtime. ClearSilk uses a non-ablative laser, so it creates this heat without injuring the skin’s surface through its 1064 wavelength, which allows it to target chromophores. This makes it a lot easier for the skin to rejuvenate and quickly heal to produce results!


How it works at Vively Body Science

Consultation to determine your treatment

Before your ClearSilk treatment, you’ll consult with a Vively specialist to discuss your specific skin concerns and treatment goals. In this complimentary consultation, we’ll discuss how ClearSilk can help and examine the potential treatment areas. Then, we will determine if ClearSilk is right for you. 

We recommend skin treatments on a case-by-case basis, as we believe the best care is personalized care. We’ll take in a number of factors to find the best treatment for your concerns and desired results.

Once we’ve completed a consultation, your ClearSilk specialist will create a personalized treatment plan for you. This will include how many sessions are required and how spaced apart they will be.


For the treatment, we will use ClearSilk handpiece technology to target your skin concerns and reduce or eliminate them. You may see improvement after one procedure, though typically our patients see the best results after 4 to 6 treatments spaced 2 to 3 weeks apart.

We will always advise you to limit your skin’s exposure to the sun and stay hydrated, and these measures will also help to maximize your ClearSilk results. We can recommend the best sunscreen product for your skin for optimal aftercare, and we recommend other sun protection measures, such as a hat.

Another laser facial treatment option: BBL

While we don’t typically recommend BBL for the summer, we do really love this transforming skin treatment. Depending on your skin and unique goals, we may recommend this laser facial for you instead of ClearSilk. Below is a short overview of BBL.

Treatment overview

Forever Young BBL is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to dramatically improve the health and appearance of your skin. 

ForeverYoung BBL effectively targets dyschromia, which is a term for many types of abnormal pigmentation of the skin. Dyschromia can result from environmental factors, genetics, hormonal changes, and aging.

This science-backed light therapy treatment safely targets and helps reverse damage for the following skin concerns:

  • Aging skin
  • Rosacea and redness
  • Sun spots
  • Age spots
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne 

ForeverYoung BBL by Sciton is the most powerful light therapy protocol on the market and the only technology that has been scientifically proven to change the expression of genes to closely resemble younger skin cells. This advanced technique offers revolutionary, long lasting results with a fast procedure time, zero downtime, and minimal discomfort.

Paired treatment: SkinTyte

SkinTyte is an infrared skin tightening procedure designed to target and lift loose, sagging skin in key areas of your body. Sagging skin can be a byproduct of aging, pregnancy, weight loss, and even genetics. Many of our patients target this skin concern in combination with their ClearSilk treatment to transform their skin. 

SkinTyte helps to reduce:

SkinTyte treatment areas:

  • Lower face
  • Neck
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Abdomen

How it works

SkinTyte works by utilizing infrared light technology to heat dermal collagen deep within the skin. This heat triggers your body’s collagen to contract and coagulate and start the healing process, which tightens the skin.  

The benefits of SkinTyte

Firmer skin & safe for all skin types

With SkinTyte, you get to choose the specific area you want treated for firmer, tighter skin no matter your skin type.

Boosted confidence

Whether tighter skin helps your clothes fit better or helps you feel more comfortable and confident, you can be sure to feel great from your skin tightening results.

Speedy procedure

This treatment is quick and painless, so you can get back into your routine without missing a beat.

Paired treatment: ClearV

ClearV is the newest treatment on the market to treat spider veins and other vascular lesions. It safely and effectively targets visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions, and skin discoloration. If you have unwanted veins or any of these other conditions, ClearV is an excellent treatment to combine with ClearSilk.

ClearV treats:

  • Facial telangiectasias
  • Periorbital veins
  • Reticular veins
  • Port wine stains
  • Rosacea
  • Warts
  • Skin tags

The benefits of ClearV

The technology behind ClearV

1064 wavelength

The 1064nm wavelength in ClearV’s technology has strong absorption by oxyhemoglobin. This provides ClearV with the ability to selectively heat veins to eliminate them while making vessels less noticeable.

Subsurface Vein Illumination (SVI™)

SVI technology is created to give enhanced visibility to your laser vein treatment provider, a Vively team member! We use this visibility to better see any subsurface and feeder veins, creating more thorough and effective results.
