Your Clear + Brilliant® Consultation

Your journey begins with a thorough consultation with one of our aestheticians. Our expert team will assess your skin type, discuss your aesthetic goals, and customize a treatment plan tailored to your needs. This initial step ensures that the Clear + Brilliant® procedure aligns perfectly with your goals.

How to Prepare for Your Clear + Brilliant® Procedure

To maximize results and comfort, it's essential to come prepared. Cleanse your face thoroughly, avoiding any makeup or heavy lotions on the day of your treatment. Stay hydrated, and if you have concerns about sensitivity, discuss potential pre-treatment options with our team. Refrain from using retinol, AHAs, or BHAs for 3 to 5 days before your appointment. For treatments targeting hairy regions, shave in advance.

During Your Clear + Brilliant® Procedure

Once your skin is prepped, the Clear + Brilliant® laser is smoothly guided over the target areas, emitting gentle pulses and creating microscopic treatment zones. While you might feel a build-up of warmth, most generally consider the sensation comfortable. The laser energy is expertly calibrated to stimulate collagen production and encourage the growth of new skin cells.

Clear + Brilliant® Aftercare & Recovery Timeline

After the treatment, you may experience mild redness on your skin, similar to a sunburn, which should subside within a few hours. For the next 24 hours, it's best to sidestep activities that cause sweating or facial flushing. In the subsequent days, refrain from using retinol, AHAs, or BHAs.

Keep your skin hydrated, avoid direct sun exposure, and use a gentle moisturizer for optimal results and to maintain the health of your skin. You will notice an improvement in skin texture and radiance within a few days, and full results will be evident after a few weeks.

Am I a Good Candidate for Clear + Brilliant®?

Clear + Brilliant® is an exceptional solution for those looking to perfect their pore size, texture, and combat moderate to severe pigmentation issues like melasma. It caters to all skin types, offering an effective preventive strategy to sustain a youthful radiance. Beyond prevention, if fine lines and wrinkles have already marked their territory, Clear + Brilliant® can address them.

While it's safe for the majority, there are some exceptions. Specifically, individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or dealing with autoimmune disorders, certain skin conditions, or recent sun exposure in the past month, as well as those on specific medications or with impaired wound healing, should reconsider undergoing this treatment. Please speak with our team to learn if this treatment is right for you.

Clear + Brilliant® Benefits

Clear + Brilliant® is not just another skincare treatment; it's a transformative experience with tangible benefits that revitalizes your skin from the inside out. Here's what you can expect:

  • Soft, Silkier Skin: Over time, our skin is exposed to various elements that can make it feel rough and dull. Clear + Brilliant® works to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin, leading to a noticeably softer and silkier touch that lasts.
  • An Authentic Glow to Your Complexion: The beauty of Clear + Brilliant® is how it revives your skin from within. Promoting cell turnover and enhancing skin health brings a natural glow to the surface that exudes vibrancy and health.
  • Lustrous Skin Tone: Uneven skin tone is a common concern for many. Whether caused by sun damage, aging, or other factors, it can diminish the skin's youthful appearance. Clear + Brilliant® targets these inconsistencies, promoting an even, radiant, and lustrous tone.
  • Clearer and Healthier-Looking Skin: Clogged pores and surface irregularities can make skin look tired and aged. Clear + Brilliant® dives deep, refining pores and enhancing skin clarity.
How long after Clear + Brilliant can I exfoliate?
Following your treatment, refrain from vigorously rubbing, scrubbing, or exfoliating for at least seven days. Opt for a gentle cleanser and hydrating moisturizer, and steer clear of heavier products like facial oils and balms.
How long do Clear + Brilliant results last?
The effects of the procedure can endure for months. For optimal outcomes, based on individual skin concerns and goals, it's recommended to undergo a series of 4 to 6 treatments or to receive treatment once every season. Clear + Brilliant® can seamlessly fit between more intensive laser resurfacing treatments to maintain and enhance the desired results.
