The View: Year of the Viewer
It is the Year of The Viewer on The View, and the co-hosts are going all out to reward loyal fans with great beauty advice and fabulous getaways. It’s also a convenient way to cram in some product placement, as with today’s segment for “painless laser technology,” the Alma ClearLift Laser. (For more segments from The View, check out Joel McHale and Kendall & Kylie Jenner.)
The View: Ultherapy Vs Venus Freeze
One viewer is getting a non-surgical lift, and the neck area is of particular concern for women. The thin skin of the neck is more delicate, and something called “fat puddles" can also occur. If you use skin products, don’t stop at the jawline. Be sure to treat your neck and decolletage as well, said beauty expert Marie Czenko.
Options for tightening or improving the appearance of the neck include a potentially painful surgical neck lift, liposuction and Botox. But more modern treatments, Czenko explained, include Ultherapy, which tightens the skin. Thermage and Venus Freeze are radiofrequency treatment options.
The View: Alma ClearLift Laser Review
The latest innovation is called ClearLift, which uses laser therapy to tighten the skin. Dr Bruce Katz was on hand to perform a procedure on the show. It was actually the patient’s fourth treatment.
The Alma Clear Lift Laser is based on military technology, which sounds terrifying to me. “It shoots the laser beams deep into the skin, stimulates collagen, tightens the skin," he explained. The procedure is painless and has no downtime.

The laser helps make more collagen, and the patient said she did not feel anything. All you see is a strobing light. Before and after pictures showed a remarkable difference after just a few treatments.
Be sure to choose a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Ask about the number of treatments you will need, the cost, and any side effects or downtime you should expect.
