Clear and Brilliant Laser is an excellent laser for skin maintenance. It uses the same laser wavelength as Fraxel, but with gentler settings. As a result, it can improve and maintain skin quality, reduce pigment, fine lines, and wrinkles, and decrease pore sizing.


Fractional laser resurfacing serves as a gentle treatment option for individuals dealing with undesired pigmentation, enlarged pores, fine wrinkles, and sun damage.

Clear & Brilliant laser is essentially a scaled-down version of the Fraxel treatment, featuring a downtime of just 1-4 days.

This fractional laser can help treat AND prevent age related changes including wrinkles, sun spots, pigmentation & enlarged pores.

Clinical studies shows that this laser can:

  • Improve the look of fine lines
  • Reduce the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Improve skin tone, texture & pigmentation

Within 1 week. Patients see brighter skin with reduced pigmentation. 

The number of sessions needed typically ranges from 2 to 4, depending on your diagnosis and expectations. Treatment sessions are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Applying a numbing gel ensures that the treatments are comfortable. Following the laser treatment, you might encounter a brief sensation of mild burning, which typically subsides within a few minutes. Any redness is expected to diminish after a few hours.

Yes, but pico lasers at our sister clinic Cutis Dermatology are much better .We can tweak the settings on C & B to deliver good & safe results, however, the Pico laser provides more efficient & safer treatment for darker skin types.  

Fraxel is better at reversing pigment, wrinkles and ageing, while Clear & Brilliant maintains results. A guide:

• Spots, dots, pigmentation, wrinkles: Fraxel combined with CO2
• Mild skin issues or wish to maintain: Clear + Brilliant
• Ethnic skin pigmentation, enlarged pores: Picoway laser
• Redness & broken capillaries: Vascular laser

Investing time, effort, and financial resources in laser resurfacing is a significant commitment. Here are some valuable tips to assist you on your skincare journey.

In terms of clinical indications, Clear & Brilliant stands out as an excellent option for addressing mild skin concerns. It particularly excels as a laser treatment for maintaining results achieved from other laser treatments.

Consider your skin type and color; Clear & Brilliant is most effective for lighter skin types. If you have darker or ethnic skin, pico lasers are more suitable for your needs.

Pay attention to settings; they play a crucial role. Since lasers function as devices, using the correct and appropriate settings is essential to optimize results and minimize potential side effects.

Maintaining healthy skin involves incorporating vitamins A, B, and C into your skincare routine. Dermatologists often recommend antioxidants such as ascorbic acid, ferulic acid, tocopherol, resveratrol, and silymarin.

Chemical peels present another excellent skin care choice, with options like AHA peels and retinoic acid peels. The frequency of peels, conducted every 2-8 weeks, depends on your specific skincare objectives. Our dermal therapists will provide guidance tailored to your needs.
