Clear + Brilliant Q & A
Clear + Brilliant is a revolutionary laser treatment clinically proven to fight the effects of aging skin. It is ideal for patients who want to refresh their look, prevent signs of aging and keep their skin looking younger and more radiant.
What is Clear + Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant is a powerful fractional laser treatment that is used for the regular maintenance of younger, radiant looking skin.
Clear + Brilliant can be added to your regular skincare regimen to help you keep your skin looking its youthful best. Clear + Brilliant is proven to help improve tone, texture and pore size appearance. You’ll see and feel the difference; smoother skin that will make you look and feel great.
Clear + Brilliant is a treatment for patients who need only a slight correction for fine lines, want to protect their skin against the natural effects of aging, don’t want more invasive procedures like cosmetic surgery or aggressive resurfacing treatments and want their skin to keep looking youthful and radiant.
What results can I expect from a Clear + Brilliant treatment?
Though results may vary, your skin will feel softer and have improved tone, texture and radiance. Patients frequently report “younger looking skin” and a “radiant glow” after treatment. Clinical studies highlights include:
- Visibly illuminated skin tone
- Renewed, ultra-soft and smoother texture
- Naturally radiant and glowing skin
- Improved tone, texture and radiance
- Skin that looks clear and brilliant
- Reduction in the appearance of pores
What is a Clear + Brilliant Treatment like?
Clear + Brilliant is a fractional laser treatment designed to deliver powerfully precise laser energy to stimulate a refreshing boost that only Clear + Brilliant can deliver. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue. The Clear + Brilliant laser includes smart-tip technology and an advanced precision energy delivery system, ensuring consistent results.
A Clear + Brilliant treatment takes about 30 minutes. Prior to treatment, a topical numbing cream may be applied to your face in order to provide additional comfort. Immediately after treatment you can resume your normal activities and use most typical skin care products. The staff of Pier Medical will discuss with you if there is a specific product you should avoid after treatment.
Immediately after treatment, you may experience some redness and mild swelling, but both typically diminish in about 12 hours. Over the next few days, you may experience some itchiness or skin sensitivity to touch or temperature, which is an indication of the skin’s natural renewal process. These dissipate a few days after treatment. Most patients report little to no downtime other than some dryness.
Add a Clear + Brilliant laser treatment to your routine, much like you plan for a facial or a trip to the hair salon.
How many treatments will I need?
You can see visible improvements after 4-6 treatments, although many patients choose to have routine treatments as part of their overall skin care regimen. You can discuss a personalized treatment regimen with Dr. Mest and the clinical staff of Pier Medical Aesthetics.
How long will results last?
The results of treatment are both immediate and progressive. A few days after the treatment, the skin will start to feel softer, look brighter and show more even tone. Results can last for months depending on age, skin condition and how the patient protects the skin.
Can I combine Clear + Brilliant with other treatments?
Clear + Brilliant procedures may be complementary to most other cosmetic procedures, like fillers, Thermage® or even Botox®.
Clear + Brilliant can also be combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) where the growth factors contained in the PRP will supercharge your results.
If you had had corrective laser treatments, such as the Icon 1540 laser treatments, Clear + Brilliant is a great way to protect the investment you have made in your skin, maintaining, extending and helping to continually improve upon the results you’ve already seen.
Is Clear + Brilliant right for me?
Clear + Brilliant is right for you if:
- You already have or plan to begin a skin care regimen to help protect against the natural and environmental effects of aging
- You like the way your skin looks today, and want to keep that fresh, youthful look for years to come
- You have a regular, consistent approach to skincare and are looking to boost your results
- You don’t have the time or desire for more invasive procedures like cosmetic surgery or aggressive resurfacing treatments
