How does Clear + Brilliant work?
Clear + Brilliant® is a gentle treatment that uses fractional laser technology to refresh your skin from the inside out. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue.
What can I expect during the treatment?
Before the treatment, a topical numbing agent will be applied to the skin. This will provide comfort during the procedure. Clear + Brilliant® takes approximately 20 minutes. Patients describe the sensation as warm and prickly. We recommend avoiding hot tubs, saunas, or hot yoga for the rest of the day after your Clear + Brilliant® treatment. Your technician will provide you with thorough post-treatment instructions.
Is there any downtime?
There is minimal downtime after Clear + Brilliant®. Immediately after the treatment your skin will be somewhat red and warm. These effects are temporary and typically resolve by the next morning. Within a couple of days your skin may feel like “sandpaper” as the old skin sloughs off and new skin is revealed. Most patients are able to resume regular activities after the treatment, although we recommend waiting approximately 24 hours before applying full makeup.
What results can I expect from Clear + Brilliant®?
Results are immediate and progressive. A few days after the treatment your skin will begin to feel softer, look brighter, and show more even tone. For maximum results we typically recommend up to six treatments, spaced approximately one month apart. Results can last for months depending on skin condition, and how well a patient takes care of their skin. Daily use of sunscreen with at least SPF 30 is essential for maintaining results.
