Clear + Brilliant® Laser Treatment
Aging skin is a fact of life. The good news is the earlier you start taking care of your skin, the more you can prevent the signs of aging and maintain a younger look. What you do in your 20s and 30s will affect how you look in your 40s, 50s and beyond. Adding Clear + Brilliant® to your collection of skin care tricks – at any age – will help you recover the glow, luminosity and smoothness your skin, and you, deserve.
Clear + Brilliant® is a unique treatment that uses safe, fractional laser technology to address early signs of aging and help to prevent them. A noninvasive resurfacing laser treatment that promises to even skin tone, boost radiance, reduce pore size, and enhance elasticity by drilling microscopic holes in the surface of the skin and kicking collagen into healing overdrive. Clear + Brilliant® is billed as being preventative—according to proponents, a series of once-a-month sessions can keep early signs of aging at bay—as well as restorative. We love it because it can deliver Fraxel-like results after only a single treatment, patients love it because it doesn’t render them social pariahs for a week afterward.
