Seeing the first signs of aging can be a source of panic, especially for those in their 20s or 30s. While a solid skincare routine, sunblock, and a healthy diet help to protect the skin, they can’t stop the natural aging process.
Fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and enlarged pores are common skin concerns that sometimes need an extra boost to resolve. Clear and Brilliant is a gentle skin resurfacing treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines, diminishes melasma, and decreases visible pores.
What Is Clear and Brilliant?
Clear and Brilliant is an FDA-approved laser treatment used for skin resurfacing. It improves the tone and texture of the skin and reduces hyperpigmentation. The therapy works by introducing thousands of tiny micro-injuries into the skin that trigger the body’s natural healing process through collagen production.
As the skin produces collagen, new skin cells and tissue appear. Damaged skin cells disappear, and fresher skin tissue develops.
The laser used in a Clear and Brilliant treatment is a fractional laser. Fractional lasers produce microscopic beams that treat small areas of the skin while leaving the remaining tissue alone.
Clear and Brilliant is known for its gentle lasers, which are less traumatic to the skin than other fractional lasers, such as Fraxel.
Clear and Brilliant is an excellent solution for minor skin concerns that need a quick fix. Individuals with more extensive skin damage see more dramatic effects from other laser treatments.
What Are the Benefits of a Clear and Brilliant Treatment?
Clear and Brilliant provides numerous benefits, including the following.
A Radiant Glow
Patients seeking a more youthful appearance, even skin tone, and a dewy look benefit from Clear and Brilliant. Clear and Brilliant works by creating tiny micro-injuries in the skin that the body must heal using its natural processes.
Once the body replaces the damaged skin cells, the fresh cells create a more even skin surface.
Approved for All Skin Tones
Individuals with darker skin often find themselves unable to use laser treatments because lasers can be attracted to darker pigment. In some cases, they can’t distinguish between skin concerns like melasma or rosacea and the person’s natural skin tone.
The fractional laser used in Clear and Brilliant is different. It can target a variety of skin concerns, regardless of skin color and tone.
Excellent Maintenance Option for Other Laser Treatments
Individuals who have undergone more aggressive laser treatments, such as Fraxel, find Clear and Brilliant an attractive maintenance therapy. The lasers used in Fraxel penetrate deeply into the skin, and patients who use it usually don’t need repeat treatments for some time.
Clear and Brilliant is a gentler option that helps maintain their results without overly damaging the skin.
Preventative Aging Treatment
Younger patients can experience tremendous results from a Clear and Brilliant treatment. The gentle laser provides light skin resurfacing, which can delay aging and fine lines. Clear and Brilliant also generates a youthful glow, which is difficult to obtain through face washing alone.
Effective for Melasma and Hyperpigmentation
Clear and Brilliant is beneficial for treating issues of melasma and hyperpigmentation. These unsightly blotches may appear as a result of sun damage, pregnancy, or aging.
Hyperpigmentation and melasma are notorious for being hard to treat. However, patients who choose Clear and Brilliant see a significant reduction in these skin spots.
Can Be Performed Year Round
Specific skin treatments, such as chemical peels, should not be performed during the summer when the sun is at its most intense. However, you can receive Clear and Brilliant in any season. Simply wear sunblock following your treatment.
How Does a Clear and Brilliant Treatment Work?
Before undergoing a Clear and Brilliant treatment, you’ll meet with a trained provider at The Skin Retreat.
To determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure, we’ll examine your skin and ask for your medical history, current skincare regimen, and a list of medications you’re currently taking. Following your consultation, we’ll schedule your appointment for Clear and Brilliant.
On the day of your appointment, we’ll begin by thoroughly cleaning your skin. Next, we’ll apply a topical numbing cream. To protect your eyes from the laser, you will need to wear a pair of goggles.
Next, our trained provider will move the Clear and Brilliant device across your skin in a pattern. The handpiece utilizes Optical Tracking to ensure even treatment of each area of the face. The entire procedure lasts less than a half hour. We will apply a gentle cooling mask to soothe the skin after treatment.
Each individual has different skin concerns, and their severity varies. Therefore, some patients may see optimal results from two to three treatments, while others may need more sessions. During your consultation, we’ll discuss the right treatment plan for you and how often your treatments should occur.
When Will I See Results from Clear and Brilliant?
Some results will be immediate. You may notice a glow on your face that you didn’t have before. Fine lines and hyperpigmentation take a little longer to diminish. The skin needs time to produce collagen and repair the wounds made by the laser.
Most people see more dramatic changes to the tone and texture of their skin one to two weeks following treatment. Multiple sessions with Clear and Brilliant will build on your initial results.
