Clear + Brilliant® Laser

As laser technology advances, your options for skin rejuvenation have increased and improved. There are dozens of different lasers with different wavelengths, technologies, and purposes. One of the most popular options is fractional lasers, which use partial skin resurfacing to optimize benefits while minimizing side effects.

Clear + Brilliant® is a uniquely gentle yet effective fractional laser. It’s clinically proven to help fight and prevent signs of aging, improving skin tone and texture without impacting your busy schedule or social life.

The Clear + Brilliant® laser is often ideal for younger patients wanting to reduce or prevent early signs of aging. It is safe for all skin types and tones. Clear + Brilliant® can also be a good maintenance treatment to preserve the results of a more aggressive procedure, or it can complement other skin rejuvenation options like microneedling and chemical peels. While moderate to severe signs of aging may require a more intensive treatment, Clear + Brilliant® is often a convenient option for minor wrinkles and sun damage.

One of our experts at Rapaport Plastic Surgery will analyze your skin and discuss your goals, concerns, and medical history during a detailed consultation to determine if Clear + Brilliant® is right for you. We’ll help create a personalized treatment plan, considering multiple treatment options and how many sessions may be necessary.

Clear + Brilliant® is a fractional laser, meaning the laser energy is broken into small beams, treating only a fraction of the skin instead of being fully ablative. Clear + Brilliant® removes approximately 20% of the skin’s surface, leaving the rest intact to promote faster healing. This makes it a gentler option than fractional lasers like Fraxel®. 

Partially resurfacing the skin with a fractional laser treatment helps clear away damage and encourage cellular turnover, renewing your complexion. Simultaneously, the laser energy heats up the dermis to increase collagen production. Collagen helps keep the skin firm and smooth, reducing wrinkles.

Our approach at Rapaport Plastic Surgery always centers around a personalized treatment plan. We take the time to assess the patient’s skin and goals so we can best treat it. Your provider may recommend pairing Clear + Brilliant® with other modalities for the best outcome.

Before your Clear + Brilliant® laser treatment, your provider will cleanse your skin and apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. Once this has taken effect, we will guide the laser device over your skin as it delivers two wavelengths of fractional energy. The intensity of the treatment can be adjusted for your unique needs.

The laser treatment itself takes less than 30 minutes. You may feel warmth, prickling, or tingling. Afterward, we may apply a cooling serum or mask to soothe the skin. This entire process takes approximately one hour.

Clear + Brilliant® has minimal downtime and side effects. Typically, patients take a day or two of social downtime. You may experience minor discomfort as the numbing cream wears off, which can be alleviated with cool compresses or over-the-counter pain medication. Most patients have minor swelling and redness that lasts a few days, similar to a bad sunburn.

You can minimize inflammation and promote healing by keeping your skin moisturized and avoiding harsh skincare products, strenuous exercise, and heat exposure during recovery. Limiting sun exposure and wearing sunscreen while your skin heals is essential.

Clear + Brilliant® lives up to its name by offering a more radiant complexion. After any redness dissipates in a few days, you can expect to see brighter, clearer skin. While one treatment will provide noticeable results, most people need multiple sessions to maximize overall improvement. We often recommend three or more sessions. 

After a full series of treatments, patients enjoy smoother, clearer skin. Clear + Brilliant® helps minimize pores, fine lines, uneven texture, and hyperpigmentation. These results should last several months. You can preserve your brilliant complexion with one or two maintenance sessions yearly. Sunscreen and high-quality skincare can also help optimize your results.
