Sometimes, I just feel BLECH, and want to feel better. Champagne and red burgundy can often help, or a new pair of shoes. But other times, I wake up and look in the mirror, and wonder WTF happened. I think many people feel like this from time to time, but they don’t want to do anything crazy or drastic; they just want to do something that will make them feel good about their skin. Enter Clear + Brilliant, my new laser. Lasers are like toys for grown-up dermatologists. You get excited when you get a new one and want to show everyone. I bought this laser because I loved how I looked and felt after my treatments with it.
Here are some FAQ:
What is Clear + Brilliant?
Clear and Brilliant is a unique treatment that uses safe fractional laser technology to treat early signs of aging skin and help prevent them. The beauty of Clear + Brilliant, unlike many other fractional lasers, is there is NO downtime. We are busy people!!
How does Clear + Brilliant work?
Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser that refreshes your skin from the inside out. It is the same exact technology as Fraxel (made by the same company), but not as aggressive. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue. There are two types of treatment, the Perméa, which addresses concerns like sun spots, irregular texture and pigment, and the 1440 which goes deeper to build collagen over time, can smooth out shallow scars, and is great for minimizing pore size. We will discuss the best option for you, or if using a combination of both is best.
What kind of results can I expect?
Your skin will look brighter, more even in tone, refreshed, and your pores will seem smaller. Your skin will look and feel smoother. You will just look good and get compliments on your skin!
How do I know Clear + Brilliant is right for me at my age?
No matter how old you are, sun exposure, environmental conditions and lifestyle can contribute to lack-luster skin. Whether you want to extend the younger look of your skin or even need to reverse these early signs of aging, Clear + Brilliant can help. Clear + Brilliant is perfect for women in their 20’s and up. This is a wonderful treatment for young women who want to PREVENT signs of aging, and a wonderful MAINTENANCE treatment for all ages. Brides-to-be, this is for you!
I have had other laser treatments, is Clear + Brilliant right for me too?
Yes, absolutely. Clear + Brilliant is a great way to maintain the investment you have made in your skin, extending and improving upon the results you’ve already seen. It is a great complement to Botox and Fillers as well.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments is tailored to your concerns and skin care desires. In recent studies, consumers reported visible improvements after 4-6 treatments. We really do not recommend doing fewer than 3 treatments to get great improvements.
Is Clear + Brilliant safe for my skin?
Clear + Brilliant is very safe when used by a trained expert who will evaluate your skin and recommend the best course of treatments for your unique concerns. Risks, side effects and complications will be discussed in consult and on consent form. Clear + Brilliant can be used on all skin of color.
When do results appear and how long do they last?
The results of the treatment are both immediate and progressive. A few days after the treatment your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter and show more even skin tone. Results can last for months depending on your age, skin condition and how you protect your skin. Results are also cumulative and long lasting after multiple treatments. With the Perméa, you will see decreases in pore size and sunspots even after 1 treatment. With the 1440, collagen continues to build up to 6 months after treatment.
What is the downtime with Clear + Brilliant?
The beauty is there is none. You can go to work the next day, exercise the next day, wear makeup the next day, pick-up your kids from school without scaring other parents the next day.
