ClearSense utilises Sciton’s advanced laser technology and real-time temperature monitoring to enable the safe and effective treatment of a variety of indications including ClearToe*, a new treatment for nail fungus. “Patients who have never before had any success with other fungal therapies are seeing improvement in the appearance of their nails. It’s been a real winner for my patients,” commented Dr. Jill Waibel, a board certified dermatologist and the founder and owner of the Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute.  With ClearSense, physicians can also treat benign pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, warts, scars, and wrinkles, and use it for permanent hair reduction.
