    Clear + Brilliant

    Life happens, and it shows on our skin. Things like sun exposure, damaged skin, stress, and natural aging can't really be stopped, but Clear + Brilliant laser treatments can help to prevent further damage and restore your skin's natural radiance, luminosity, and smoothness! The laser helps to even out skin tone, remove past sun damage, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to help fade age spots.

    Clear + Brilliant Overview

    Clear + Brilliant is a laser treatment that helps improve the overall appearance of your skin. The treatment involves a laser that uses short, safe pulses of energy to help stimulate collagen production and improve skin tone and texture. The pulsating beams of light exfoliate away layers of dead skin cells, revealing a smoother and clearer complexion. Clear + Brilliant can be used to treat a variety of concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and dull skin.

    What Clear + Brilliant does

    The Clear + Brilliant treatment uses a gentle laser to refresh your skin from the inside out. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue. A series of 3-6 treatments scheduled 4 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.

    How to prepare for Clear + Brilliant

    Discontinue use of retinoids and prescription topicals 14 days prior to your treatment. Discontinue antibiotics 14 days prior and avoid sun exposure 30 days prior to each treatment. 

    What to expect from Clear + Brilliant

    A numbing topical is applied prior to treatment to allow for a near-painless experience. You will experience mild redness and a residual heat sensation for up to several hours post treatment. Within 24 hours new skin will start to form within. This process usually takes anywhere from 4-7 days. During this time, exfoliate to reveal the repaired skin tissue and apply moisturizers and sunscreen frequently.

    Postcare notes

    • Post-treatment cooling masks or handheld fans may be used to alleviate discomfort.
    • Over-the-counter itch and pain relievers may be used if necessary (i.e. Benadryl, Claritin,
      Tylenol, etc.)
    • Avoid sun exposure and self-tanning products for at least 2 weeks after treatment. Sun exposure can increase the risk of unwanted pigmentation
    • Apply sunscreen of at least 30 SPF, daily. Skin will be more sun sensitive following treatment.
    • Avoid treatments such as injections fillers, chemical peels or laser treatment for at least 2 weeks after treatment, or until completely healed. Avoid systemic steroids throughout the course of treatment.
    • Avoid the use of retinoids 1 week post treatment.
