About the Procedure
For patients with minor skin irregularities in tone and texture, Clear + Brilliant can help to improve and restore a youthful appearance to the skin. Clear + Brilliant is a type of non-ablative fractional laser. Fractional lasers are more targeted in their treatment areas but since the procedure is non-ablative, it means the laser is non-wounding and will allow for a more gradual improvement in the skin. A Clear + Brilliant laser treatment will begin by applying a topical numbing cream to ensure patient comfort throughout the entire session which will last approximately 30 minutes. Once the skin is thoroughly numbed, the Clear + Brilliant handpiece will deliver the laser energy to the skin, targeting trouble areas to encourage cell turnover and an increase in natural collagen production. Depending on the patient's needs, topical antioxidant serums or face masks may be applied after treatment to moisturize skin and enhance results.
The goal of Clear + Brilliant is to decrease the appearance of fine lines and skin tone and texture irregularities of the course of a series of treatments.
Following a Clear + Brilliant treatment the skin will be temporarily red and swollen. Cool compresses may be applied to reduce any discomfort. Most patients resume normal activity the same day as treatment but should avoid strenuous activity until the skin is completely healed. Avoid sun exposure to prevent new damage in skin tone or texture.
The ideal Clear + Brilliant candidate fine lines, minor skin tone and texture irregularities such as sun spots or acne scarring and desires a gradual improvement in their complexion.
