Clear + Brilliant
Clear + Brilliant is a laser procedure that improves skin tone and boosts radiance. Clear + Brilliant treats mild sun damage, acne and acne scarring, as well as pigmentation issues like sun spots and melasma. Our office has both the Clear + Brilliant Legacy and Clear + Brilliant Touch device.
How does Clear + Brilliant work?
Clear + Brilliant is considered the most gentle of all resurfacing lasers. Clear + Brilliant resurfaces the skin by causing controlled mild micro-injury to its outermost layer. Results develop as the body heals itself, replacing the old, damaged skin cells with new cells and increasing collagen production for a more even tone and texture. Clear + Brilliant is ideal for those who want to maintain the health and quality of their skin.
Is Clear + Brilliant safe?
The FDA has cleared Clear + Brilliant to safely treat a number of issues related to skin texture, tone and pigment. Clear + Brilliant has an excellent safety profile. Like any surgical or non-surgical procedure, there are risks. As a teacher and trainer of other physicians in laser procedures, Dr. Cox stresses the importance of finding an experienced provider directly supervised by an on-site physician who understands the finer points of laser treatment.
Clear + Brilliant downtime
Clear + Brilliant treatments are well tolerated. Some patients opt for use of a topical numbing gel prior to treatment. The procedure typically lasts about 20 minutes. Patient report a sensation of heat and prickling and may experience mild discomfort.
Clear + Brilliant downtime is very minimal. Immediately after the procedure, you may experience redness and slight discomfort, like a mild sunburn. Redness is temporary and usually resolves within 24 hours. Your skin will develop a light “sandpaper” texture. This is not noticeable by others and resolves within a week. Downtime for the Clear + Brilliant Touch will be slightly more noticeable.
Clear + Brilliant results
Clear + Brilliant results are visible within days of treatment. You will notice a brighter, more even skin tone. A series of treatments produces the best results. Clear + Brilliant results are best seen 1-2 months after the last treatment in your series.
