Clear and Brilliant: Proactive laser skin care
Gentle technologyClear and Brilliant is a non-ablative fractional laser. The treatment heats the targeted tissue without destroying it. “Fractionated” describes a beam of laser energy broken into thousands of microscopic columns that penetrate surface layers of skin. The purpose is to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, filling imperfections – fine lines and wrinkles.
Clear and Brilliant treatment
Clear and Brilliant is an excellent treatment for improving the tone, texture, and pore size of the face. It also helps to decrease the fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating your body to make its own natural collagen. Additionally, it has no downtime which is the best part of the Clear and Brilliant.
What locations is Clear and Brilliant used to treat?
Clear and Brilliant is best used for treatment of the face, neck, chest, and hands. Typically, patients are satisfied after a series of three treatments. However, I recommend additional single treatments every 4 to 6 months to continue to build your own natural collagen, as unfortunately, we keep aging, and then the environment keeps degrading our own collagen.
On what skin types can Clear and Brilliant treatment be used?
Clear and Brilliant can be used in all skin types. Therefore, anyone looking to improve the tone and texture of their skin, as well as decrease fine lines and wrinkles, and have no downtime is an excellent candidate for this procedure.
How does the Clear and Brilliant treatment work?
Clear and Brilliant works by making small microthermal zones in the skin, which are heated columns which stimulate your body to make its own natural collagen, and allows your body to extrude the damaged unhealthy collagen through the channels.
How do you prepare for your Clear and Brilliant treatment? And what happens on your treatment day?
2 weeks prior to your Clear and Brilliant procedure, you should be diligently wearing your broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen every day. Then on the day of your procedure, you will arrive at the Skin & Vein Institute and be brought back into our numbing room. You will numb for about 45 minutes and then will be brought to the procedure room, the procedure is virtually painless and you have a cool air blowing on your skin to make it even more painless. Then after the procedure, antioxidants will be applied to your skin to further enhance the collagen building.
What are the post-care instructions?
After the Clear and Brilliant, you’ll be pink for about 30 minutes which will then fade very quickly. Other than that, there is absolutely no downtime, which is wonderful for our active, healthy San Diego patients. In the morning, you will wake up and notice a sandpaper feel to your face which is not visible to the naked eye and covered completely with makeup. Over the next week I recommend you continue to wear your broad spectrum, daily sunscreen, as well as use a gentle cleanser and do not exfoliate the little bumps off your skin as they need to fall off on their own so that new collagen can replace the damaged collagen.
Is Clear & Brilliant safe and effective?
Clear & Brilliant is safe and effective for all skin types, and is the perfect procedure for someone who doesn’t want any downtime, but wants to refresh their look, build their own natural collagen, and look stunning always.
