What is Clear + Brilliant?
Who should use Clear + Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant is typically recommended for people with mild to moderate skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, and enlarged pores. It is also beneficial for people who want to maintain their youthful appearance and prevent further signs of aging.
It is not recommended for people with darker skin tones, as it may lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) and for people with active acne or skin rashes.
It is best to consult with our dermal therapists, to determine if Clear & Brilliant is the right treatment for you and your individual skin concerns. They will also be able to provide you with more information about the treatment and its potential benefits and risks.
Can Clear + Brilliant reduce acne scars?
Clear & Brilliant is not specifically designed to treat acne scars, but it can improve the overall appearance of the skin, which may make acne scars less noticeable. The laser treatment creates micro-injuries in the skin, which triggers the body's natural healing process and stimulates collagen production. This can result in smoother, more even-toned, and youthful-looking skin. However, it is important to note that Clear & Brilliant is not a substitute for more aggressive acne scar treatments such as fractional CO2 laser resurfacing or subcision, which can be more effective for treating acne scars.
It's important to have a consultation with a dermatologist or skin care professional before undergoing any treatment for acne scars. They will be able to evaluate your skin and recommend the most appropriate treatment for your individual skin concerns.
Is Clear + Brilliant good for enlarged pores?
Clear & Brilliant laser treatment can be beneficial for reducing the appearance of enlarged pores. It works by heating the upper dermis and targeting the sebaceous glands in the pores, which can help reduce the size and visibility of pores. The laser energy also stimulates collagen production, which can make the skin look more youthful and refined.
It's important to note that the results of the treatment may vary depending on the individual, and a series of treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results. It's also important to maintain a good skincare routine, including regular exfoliation and use of products that help to unclog pores, as well as sun protection, to maintain the results and prevent further damage.
Can you get Clear + Brilliant while on acne medication?
It is generally not recommended to have Clear & Brilliant laser treatments while on acne medication or within 6-12 months after completing a course of the medication. Prescription vitamin A is a medication that is used to treat severe acne and it makes the skin more sensitive to light and heat. The laser used in Clear & Brilliant treatments generates heat and light, which could cause further irritation and damage to the skin while taking acne medication. Additionally, the medication can increase the risk of side effects such as hyperpigmentation, scarring and even burn if laser treatment is done during or after taking the medication.
It's important to consult with a dermatologist or skin care professional before having any laser treatment while on acne medication or after completing a course of the medication. They will be able to advise you on the best course of action for your individual situation.
Does Clear + Brilliant downtime?
Clear & Brilliant is considered to be a gentle laser treatment with minimal downtime. After the treatment, the skin may be slightly red and swollen, similar to a mild sunburn. These symptoms typically resolve within a few hours to a day. You may also experience some mild itching and tightness in the treated area.
There are a few things you should avoid doing after the treatment to help minimize side effects and promote healing:
- Avoid sun exposure or use sunblock
- Avoid hot shower or sauna
- Avoid picking or scratching the treated area
- Avoid using exfoliating products or scrubs
Most people are able to return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment, but you should avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, and hot tubs for a day or two.
How many treatments will I need?
The frequency of Clear & Brilliant treatments will depend on your individual skin concerns and goals. It's generally recommended to have a series of treatments, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. The number of treatments required will depend on your individual skin concerns and goals, as well as the condition of your skin.
After your initial series of Clear & Brilliant treatments, you may choose to maintain your results with occasional touch-up treatments. The frequency of these touch-up treatments can vary depending on your skin type, lifestyle, and other factors.
