Clear + Brilliant

Perfect Skin with Minimal Downtime


"Clear and Brilliant is a simple, in-office procedure with minimal downtime that reduces pore size, smooths texture and removes brown spots," confirms Dr. Champagne. "Essentially, [it] just makes your skin look fresh."

Of all the skin resurfacing lasers, Clear + Brilliant is one of the most gentle, which is why it’s often described as the "starter" laser. Clear + Brilliant is a non-ablative fractional laser, but it penetrates at a lighter depth. "A fractional laser beam comes out like little pixel dots and affects only a percentage of the targeted skin," explains Dr. Champagne. This means that instead of treating all the cells in a specific area, only a fraction of them are resurfaced, leaving behind a smattering of healthy cells that will (remove -> be the heroes and) initiate a robust healing response. The regenerative action provided by the non-treated tissue left behind is what actually rejuvenates the skin.

Clear + Brilliant is great for the 20 or 30 year old who wants a more advanced treatment than her/his current skincare regimen, but doesn’t need the full transformative benefits of a more aggressive laser skin resurfacing procedure. It’s perfect for reversing and preventing early signs of aging and correcting minor sun damage. While Clear + Brilliant is great for those seeking preventative skincare, it is also great for those looking to maintain and prolong the results of more transformative procedures like a facelift or even after a more aggressive fractional laser resurfacing treatment.

What to Expect

The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

A numbing agent will be applied to the face 30 minutes prior to treatment. Dr. Champagne will individualize the treatment settings and then guide the Clear & Brilliant hand-piece across the treatment area. During treatment patients tend to experience a warm prickling feeling with little to no discomfort. After treatment, a cooling serum is applied to the area to soothe skin. Recovery time is minimal with some patients experiencing slight redness for 12-24 hours following treatment. The treated area may also feel faintly rough for up to five days after treatment. Most patients return to their daily routine within one day post treatment.
