Clear + Brilliant™ is a gentle resurfacing laser performed on the face, neck, chest, arms or hands. It is a treatment that is similar but less aggressive than Fraxel yet slightly more aggressive than microdermabrasion. You may have seen Clear + Brilliant™ featured on the Dr. Oz show or read about it in W or Harper’s Bazaar magazine. Lasers are one of the hottest technologies in skin care. It is changing quickly and it seems like there is a new, improved treatment as fast as you can say wrinkle free. What you do in your 20s and 30s will affect how you look in your 40s, 50s and beyond. Adding Clear + Brilliant™ to your collection of skin care tricks – at any age – will help you recover the glow, luminosity and smoothness your skin, and you, deserve.

What To Expect
The Clear + Brilliant™ laser is optimized for preventing and addressing early signs of aging including skin texture, firmness, elasticity and pore-size appearance. It has been one of our favorite energy devices as it provides less invasive and affordable treatments with minimal if any downtime that can be preventative as well as restorative. Several patients notice improved skin appearance and a “glow” almost immediately, and it is a great introductory laser for patients who do not need more intensive treatments or want to avoid the downtime.
The new Perméa treatment combines the Clear + Brilliant™ laser with a topical antioxidant treatment. The special Perméa handpiece is optimized for brighter more even skin tone and enhanced skin permeability. It allows to combine the laser treatment with a synergistic Skinceuticals CE Ferrulic antioxidant treatment, which takes advantage of the increased skin permeability to achieve maximum patient benefits.

What is Clear+Brilliant?
This gentle fractional laser system is ideal for those who want to improve early signs of aging and achieve refreshed skin from the inside out. Clear + Brilliant™ treatments illuminate and smooth your skin, while reducing the appearance of pores and fine lines. It consists of an infrared diode laser with a wavelength of 1440 +20 nm that delivers low-power laser energy to millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, triggering the replacement of damaged cells with healthy, younger-looking tissue.
What Makes it Different?
Because the Clear + Brilliant™ is a gentle laser there is no down time. Your skin will feel softer and have improved tone, smoother texture and radiance. Your skin may appear red and feel warm immediately after your treatment. Symptoms generally resolve within a few hours, but may last until the following day. Patients may apply makeup and go about their normal activities. There are no post-treatment regimens associated with Clear + Brilliant™ therapy. Once your treatment is complete, you are free to resume your normal activities. This treatment will create some sensitivity to the sun and it is recommended that you avoid direct sunlight for two days following the procedure and wear medical grade SPF 30 sun block. Results are immediate and progressive. Results can last for months depending on age, skin condition and how one protects their skin. It may complement other cosmetic procedures, like fillers or wrinkle relaxers.
Is Clear+Brilliant For Me?
Clear + Brilliant™ helps improve the first signs of aging by targeting and reducing brown spots, uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores and fine lines and wrinkles while rejuvenating overall skin tone and texture. It can create younger looking skin for both the face and the body. With minimal discomfort and no downtime, this procedure is perfect for anyone on a busy schedule.
How Should I Prepare?
Little preparation is needed, we may advise you to stop using certain facial cleansers, creams, or products prior to treatment.
How Long Will It Take?
The treatment takes about 20 minutes. Your technician will apply a topic numbing cream for 15-20 minutes prior to the treatment. Please allow 1 hour for your session.
Just after treatment your skin will appear sunburned. This redness will subside in about a day.
Clear+Brilliant Side Effects?
Clear + Brilliant™ laser treatments are proven to be very safe. Although very rare, the potential side effects include redness, swelling, blistering, scarring, pigment changes, reactivation of cold sores (herpes simplex), and a flare in acne. Clients who are predisposed to the herpes simplex virus are recommended to take an anti-viral medication prior to their treatment to prevent an outbreak of the virus. Our physicians can prescribe this medication to them.
With proper skin care and sun protection you will enjoy your Clear + Brilliant™ results for many months. Depending on the client’s skin type, condition and goals, a series of 4 to 6 treatments are recommended. These treatments may be done 10 to 14 days a part. We recommend one or two maintenance treatments 3 or 4 months after the initial series
