Clear + Brilliant: Prevent Early Signs of Aging

Clear + Brilliant is great for people who want to maintain or prevent early signs of aging and improve overall skin tone and texture. There is not a lot of downtime required for this procedure.

Before the treatment, skin will be numbed for about 30 minutes. Prior to starting the laser, eye shields will be applied. The treatment is comfortable and should take less than 15 minutes to complete. It might feel a little bit warm or prickly during the treatment, but if any discomfort is felt, be sure to let your technician know.

Treated skin will turn somewhat red, and you may experience minor swelling for a day or so. After the treatment, you will be given an ice pack, and you may want to take some ibuprofen as well. Dryness or a sandpaper texture is normal for the first few days – this is part of the healing process. During the healing time, be sure to use a gentle moisturizer and cleanser and avoid sun exposure for seven days. Most people will need about six treatments, but these can be spaced out four weeks apart.

Some great products to use after receiving a Clear + Brilliant treatment include the SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF (antioxidant serum that helps to protect skin, the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel (help skin retain moisture), and the Elta MD UV Facial SPF 30 (zinc based, won’t sting or irritate skin).

One great thing about Clear + Brilliant is that your skin tone does not affect whether or not you are a candidate for the treatment, unlike some other laser treatments. There are other reasons that you might not be a great candidate, though, such as your medical history, certain medications, so be sure to schedule your free consultation before the procedure to be sure you have all necessary information.
