Clear and Brilliant

Clear and Brilliant is a non-invasive laser treatment that is designed to improve the texture and tone of the skin.

Clear and Brilliant

Clear and Brilliant is a non-invasive laser treatment that is designed to improve the texture and tone of the skin. It uses fractional laser technology to create microscopic treatment zones in the skin, which stimulate collagen production and promote cell renewal.

 

During the treatment, a handpiece is passed over the skin, emitting laser energy that penetrates the upper layers of the skin. The laser energy creates tiny, controlled injuries in the skin, which trigger the body's natural healing response. This response includes the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which help to improve the skin's texture and elasticity.

 

Clear and Brilliant is often used to treat a range of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and mild to moderate sun damage. The treatment is safe and effective for most skin types and can be customized to meet individual needs and goals.

Overall, Clear and Brilliant is a popular and effective laser treatment option for those looking to improve the overall appearance and health of their skin.

Procedures

Different treatment handpieces explained: Original and Permea

Clear and Brilliant laser treatment uses two different handpieces, the Original handpiece and the Permea handpiece.

 

The Original handpiece is designed to improve the overall appearance of the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin texture and tone, and minimizing the appearance of pores. The Original handpiece uses a 1440 nm wavelength laser to create micro-injury zones in the skin, which triggers the body's natural healing process and promotes collagen production. This handpiece is suitable for all skin types and can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands.

 

The Permea handpiece, on the other hand, is designed to address skin discoloration and pigmentation issues. It uses a lower 1927 nm wavelength laser to target the upper layers of the skin and promote a more even skin tone. The Permea handpiece is particularly effective for treating sun damage, age spots, and melasma. It can be used on all skin types and is most commonly used on the face, neck, and chest.

 

Add a Vitamin C Peel to your Clear and Brilliant treatment

A Vitamin C peel is a type of chemical peel that uses a high concentration of Vitamin C to exfoliate and brighten the skin. The peel can be performed as a standalone treatment or as part of a larger skincare regimen, such as in combination with Clear and Brilliant laser treatment.

 

The Vitamin C peel works by removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, which can lead to a smoother, more radiant complexion. It also promotes collagen production, which can help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as promote overall skin health.

The peel is typically applied to the face and left on for a few minutes before being neutralized and removed. After the treatment, patients may experience some mild redness and peeling, but this typically subsides within a few days.

When used in combination with Clear and Brilliant laser treatment, a Vitamin C peel can help to enhance the results of the laser treatment by improving the overall health and appearance of the skin. It can also be a great way to maintain the results of the laser treatment and keep the skin looking bright and youthful. This is a great add on for melasma and acne!

Who is this for?

This treatment is suitable for adults who have unwanted pockets of fat in the abdomen, hips, or thighs that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Downtime

The downtime associated with Clear and Brilliant laser treatment is typically minimal, and most patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.

 

After the treatment, the skin may be slightly red and may feel slightly tender or swollen. These side effects are generally mild and typically subside within a few hours to a day. In some cases, patients may experience mild peeling or flaking in the days following the treatment, but this is generally not significant enough to require downtime.

 

Patients are advised to avoid direct sun exposure and to use a gentle moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated and protected in the days following the treatment. It's also important to avoid using abrasive skincare products or exfoliating the skin until it has fully healed.

 

Overall, the downtime associated with Clear and Brilliant laser treatment is minimal, and most patients are able to return to their daily activities after the treatment.
