Clear and Brilliant is a revolutionary, gentle fractional laser treatment clinically proven to fight the effects of aging skin and safe for all skin types. The Clear and Brilliant treatment fits into a patient’s busy lifestyle and is a great preventative treatment with minimal downtime. For many patients, it is the next natural step in your skin care regimen to deliver noticeable results that keep others guessing your anti-aging secret. This laser treatment is safe and effective, but also gentle and affordable.
The Clear and Brilliant device uses proven fractionated laser technology, using a 1440 nm wavelength that creates microscopic channels in the skin. By doing this it creates a collagen response in the skin to help fight various signs of aging.
The Clear and Brilliant laser addresses:
• Skin texture
• Refines Pores
• Brightens skin
Patients can greatly benefit doing a series of 5-6 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. We do offer a discounted laser package for 4 treatments. Some patients will alternate other treatments with the laser depending on their concern. Maintenance laser treatments can be done every other month or every few months to help maintain new collagen growth and brighter skin tone.
Patients will experience a glow to their skin and their skin will appear brighter and softer. Patients will also experience textural improvements such as lessening of fine lines, wrinkles, reduction in pore size, and improvement in superficial scars. This treatment is preventative as well as restorative, and it is a great introductory laser for patients who do not need more intensive treatments or want to avoid the downtime.
This laser has minimal downtime 1-2 days of redness. Patients should avoid exercise during this time. Patients are able to apply mineral make-up the next day if needed. After the redness fades, your skin will feel rough to the touch, almost like sandpaper. No one will notice this on your skin, but when you touch or cleanse your skin you will feel this change. This may last up to 3-5 days. Patient’s can work and do normal activities during this stage. By day 7, the skin will appear healthy, luminous and rejuvenated. Over the next few weeks results will continue to improve.
Depending on the patients concern or overall goals, this treatment is great combined a few weeks apart with various anti-aging therapies and well as tightening and injectable procedures such as Ultherapy, Thermage, Botox, Fillers. Patients can also see dramatic improvement alternating MicroPeel with Dermasweep and laser resurfacing as part of their treatment regimen. Clear and Brilliant is a great beginner laser resurfacing treatment prior to fractionated C02 laser to prep the skin or can be used as a maintenance laser after fractionated C02 to continue to help build upon the deeper results achieved with more aggressive laser resurfacing. Combination therapy can help further correct damage and reveal healthier, more youthful skin.
