ABOUT Clear + Brilliant Skin Resurfacing
How Does Clear + Brilliant Work?
Clear + Brilliant works pretty much the same way as Fraxel does. Fractionated therapeutic laser energy is delivered to a target area, creating tiny columns of heat in the skin. Leaving the areas around these columns unaffected, this initiates the skin’s healing process at a faster rate and boosts collagen production.
The patented Intelligent Optical Tracking® technology gives you a more effective treatment, ensuring that the device maintains proper contact with the target area and a uniform and precise application.

Frequently Asked Questions about Clear + Brilliant
1. What is Clear + Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant is a laser resurfacing treatment that is based on fractional laser technology. It’s designed to improve overall complexion by targeting issues affecting tone and texture, caused by aging, environmental damage or other factor.
2. What areas can be treated?
Clear + Brilliant is designed to target the face, neck, décolletage and hands. For the face, this includes the forehead, cheeks, temples, jawline and around the nose/mouth. The immediate area around the eyes cannot be treated.
3. What does it feel like?
Most say that the treatment feels prickly or warm and comfortable. A topical anesthetic (numbing cream) is applied before the treatment to ensure your comfort.
4. How long does it take?
One session takes as little as 35-60 minutes. A good portion of that time is dedicated to the application of the numbing cream and waiting for it to take effect.
It’s typical to undergo a series of 4-6 sessions to achieve desired results.
5. Is there any downtime?
Unlike other laser resurfacing technologies, Clear + Brilliant is associated with little to no downtime.
6. What happens right after my treatment?
You may notice that your skin is redder in the hours after your session. You may also notice that it feels a little rougher, may be slightly swollen and have a darker tone. These effects are normal, generally lasting for a couple of days. Make sure to keep your skin covered up from the sun and avoid applying any irritating products. Use a mild soap and moisturizer.
The treated skin may begin to flake and peel 3-7 days after your session. Make sure to avoid picking at the flakes and exfoliating during your skincare regimen as these can increase your risk of infection and scarring.
7. What are the risks?
Prolonged redness, swelling and blistering are potential risks of the treatment. Infection, scarring and pigment changes can also occur but are rare.
