Are you looking for something more than microdermabrasion but not as aggressive as an ablative laser to brighten your skin? Clear + Brilliant may be your answer. Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser treatment that refreshes the skin from the inside out. This treatment helps to replace damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue. It is a treatment for all ages due to the fact sun exposure, environmental conditions, and lifestyle plays a part in each person’s daily routine. This treatment helps to extend youthful skin or reverse the early signs of aging while helping to reduce the appearance of redness, wrinkles, and pores.
Utilizing proven proprietary fractional laser science and technology, the Clear + Brilliant laser system creates an array of microscopic lesions across the surface of the skin with each pass of the handpiece. It’s patented technology creates a pattern on the skin – tiny lesions that are surrounded by large areas of healthy skin – to help promote quick healing with little or no social downtime. The healthy skin helps turn over the tiny lesions in a matter of days, revealing the fresh, smoother, more youthful glowing skin below. This device offers two handpieces.
The Original handpiece utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength that is absorbed by the water in the skin. This procedure is non-ablative. The stratum corneum remains functionally intact, which translates into a safe, low-risk treatment that heals quickly and is convenient. You can apply makeup immediately after and continue your daily activities without risk to the skin.
The Perméa handpiece utilizes a 1927 nm wavelength that has a significantly higher absorption coefficient than the Original. Though the stratum corneum remains intact, the Perméa handpiece creates wider and shallower lesions causing more considerable superficial disruption, which increases skin permeability. The topical application of serums immediately post-treatment penetrates deeper to maximize its benefits.
Since the Perméa handpiece has a fixed depth of 170µm, it effectively treats the tissue where melanin resides. Perméa is also safe on all skin types because it targets water, not other chromophores such as a pigment. Skin improvement is typical after a series of 3-6 treatments scheduled two weeks apart. The procedure takes about an hour and is used on the face, neck, and chest area. Most clients say it feels like warm rubber band snaps against the skin during treatment, but a topical anesthetic can be applied before to reduce discomfort. Following the treatment, you may see increase redness or flush appearance, which subsides shortly after. We do partner this treatment with a Vitamin C serum to enhance the treatment results.
