Concerned with the early signs of aging? Scared to get a laser treatment or worried about the downtime associated with some laser treatments? Clear + Brilliant is just for you! Considered a gentle laser treatment, Clear + Brilliant uses fractional laser technology to resurface the outer layers of the skin, improving the overall texture, tone and smoothness of the skin with little to no downtime. For this reason, it is a "pre red carpet favorite" during award season here and wedding season.
Clear + Brilliant can improve a variety of skin conditions, including:
Clear + Brilliant offers two handpieces, the Permea is used on patients concerned with the early signs of aging and discoloration. The Permea handpiece enhances the skins permeability, resulting in enhanced absorption of pigment lightening skincare which is applied immediately after treatment.
Clear + Brilliant® works harnesses fractional laser technology, and is considered a “baby laser” that creates hundreds of thousands of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, prompting the skin to replace damaged skin with healthy looking tissue, yielding younger-looking, smooth, glowing skin.
Your clinician will apply a topical anesthetic to your face for about 30 minutes prior to treatment to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the session. Once you are feeling numb, your clinician will pass over your face with the selected handpiece for your skin concerns creating tiny microchannels in your skin, stimulating its natural healing processes – and creating channels for improved absorption of medical-grade skincare products applied during and immediately after the treatment for quicker healing and smoother, firmer, and more even-looking skin.
Finally, your clinician will apply a calming balm to your face to reduce redness and irritation. The actual treatment time is 15-20 minutes, and has little to no downtime.
For the first 24 hours you can expect your skin to be pink and feel slightly sunburned. Some patients experience slight flaking and what feels like tightness and dryness of the skin for the next couple of days. Within a week after one treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter and show more even tone. Results can last for months depending on age, skin condition, and how you protect your skin.
The number of treatments is tailored to your skin concerns and desired results. In recent studies, consumers reported visible improvements after 4-6 treatments, though many patients choose to have routine treatments as part of their overall skincare regimen.
Yes, absolutely. Clear + Brilliant® treatments are very complementary to many cosmetic procedures, like Botox, fillers, chemical peels and even as maintenance between more ablative laser treatments. Clear + Brilliant® treatments are a great way to protect the investment you have made in your skin by maintaining, extending, and helping to continually improve upon your results.
