Skin treatments that employ the use of fractional laser technology have been used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin for decades now. It can be confusing deciding on what kind of laser therapy to decide on, considering the fact that new ones seem to pop up every few months or so. Clear + Brilliant® is a laser treatment that stands out when it comes to effectiveness and long-lasting results.
How Clear + Brilliant® Works
The Clear + Brilliant® treatment is a much gentler type of laser resurfacing that targets blemishes on the surface layers of the skin. Think of this kind of skin treatment as being stronger than any chemical peel but not as intensive as most laser skin treatments.
Fractional lasers, also known as CO2 lasers, are changing the way signs of aging are treated and prevented. Clear + Brilliant® is one such procedure that limits the appearance of wrinkles, age spots and other signs of aging by forcing the skin to produce new skin cells.
While the laser beams impact enough of the surface area of the skin to produce results, they spare some of it. The patient’s skin is not overwhelmed by the heat from the laser, so the process is much more gentle.
These tiny laser beams make micro-channels in the outer layers of the skin, which causes the brain to trigger the skin’s healing process. The amount of blood-flow to the area increases, as well as the level of collagen production. The collagen and other healing nutrients in the blood are absorbed by the skin as new skin cells are created. When complete healing occurs, younger and smoother skin is revealed.
The Clear + Brilliant® Procedure
The treatment time for Clear + Brilliant® doesn’t take very much time to complete in its entirety for most of our patients, although this can vary. The dermatologist performing the procedure will use the hand-held laser device against the areas of your facial skin your want treated. This part of the procedure is usually over in about twenty minutes.
After the procedure, we advise our patients on the right kinds of skin care products to use to help their skin heal more quickly from the procedure.
