If you’re considering treatment with Clear + Brilliant, here are Dr. Grodberg’s answers to a few frequently asked questions:

WHAT IS CLEAR + BRILLIANT?

The Clear + Brilliant® device is a gentle laser that uses fractional laser technology similar to the Fraxel®.  The laser creates thousands of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, which are replaced with healthy, younger looking, smoother skin.”

WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

Clear + Brilliant® treatments help your skin feel softer and improve skin tone for a youthful, more radiant glow.

Treatments may:

  • Improve skin tone
  • Increase absorption of skincare products
  • Improve the look of fine lines
  • Smooth-out differences in the appearance of pigment
  • Boost collagen
  • Minimize the appearance of pores."

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CLEAR + BRILLIANT PERMÉA®, AND CLEAR + BRILLIANT COMPLETE?

  • Clear + BrilliantOriginal  helps reduce skin imperfections.  It goes deeper beneath the skin’s surface to help improve fine lines, minimize appearance of pores and boost collagen.
  • Clear + BrilliantPerméa focuses on sun damage. It helps to smooth-out pigmentation variations and diminish localized skin discoloration. It can also help increase skin’s permeability, which increases absorption of skincare products. 
  • Clear + BrilliantCOMPLETE, the newest procedure, combines the Original and the Perméa treatments in one device.  Combining the best features of both treatments in one optimizes your results.  Clear + Brilliant® Complete Treatments help improve skin tone, texture and appearance all at once. 

During a consultation, we can discuss the best treatment plan for you.”

WHAT DO THE CLEAR + BRILLIANT® PROCEDURES FEEL LIKE?

“Most patients describe a prickling feeling and an increased sensation of heat during the treatment.

  • For the Original Clear + Brilliant® laser treatment – topical anesthetic ointment is applied before the procedure. Afterwards, you may have mild redness and swelling, which typically subside within a few hours.
  • For the Clear + Brilliant® Perméa® laser treatment – topical anesthetic is not as necessary but is still often used. A topical skincare product, such as an antioxidant serum, may be applied to each treatment area after the treatment is administered.
  • For Clear + Brilliant® Complete Treatment – We will talk about your personalized combination of both treatments.”

WHO BENEFITS FROM CLEAR + BRILLIANT® TREATMENTS?

Clear + Brilliant® is appropriate for anyone looking for healthier-looking skin and is an excellent choice for all skin types, at any age, all year round.

  • If you want to avoid or postpone more invasive skin care procedures, Clear + Brilliant® treatments are a great option to refresh your skin.
  • If you are looking for maintenance in between more significant procedures, Clear + Brilliant® is also a great option to help maintain the results you’ve seen.

Clear + Brilliant treatments Prevent,* Maintain, and Improve.”

 *Preventative treatment refers to prevention of worsening of fine lines or wrinkles due to aging or sun damage.

HOW SOON AFTER TREATMENT ARE RESULTS NOTICEABLE, AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?

“Treatment results are progressive. A few days after the treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter, and show more even tone. With each successive treatment, the results will become more noticeable. In one survey of 32 patients, more than half of the patients noticed easier makeup application. Results have been shown to be maintained as long as three months, but may vary depending on your age, skin condition, and skincare and protection regimen.”

WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

Clear + Brilliant® laser treatments are gentle. You may experience mild redness and subtle inflammation immediately after treatment. These generally resolve within a few hours but may last until the following day.”

HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT?

“A typical Clear + Brilliant® treatment requires about 30 to 45 minutes for a session, which includes time for prep and consultation. We ask that you reserve 1 hour for your appointment.”

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

“The number of treatments is tailored to your concerns and skincare desires. In one study, patients reported visible improvements after 4 to 6 treatments, though many patients choose to have routine treatments as part of their overall skincare regimen. We will discuss a personalized treatment regimen that is right for you.”
