Clear + Brilliant Laser

Clear + Brilliant is a powerful “pre-juvenation” laser treatment that reduces the appearance of pores, improves skin tone and texture, and optimizes the skin’s overall appearance in a quick and comfortable treatment. Treat the early signs of aging and keep your youthful appearance with this gentle treatment that is a fantastic complement to other lasers. The team at RefinedMD knows Clear + Brilliant pairs wonderfully with many other lasers, extending results and ensuring the best possible outcome.

This laser works by creating thousands of tiny treatment zones on just the top layer of skin, which means virtually no downtime. This urges the body to replace this now “damaged” skin with tissue that is clearer, brighter, and more youthful. Clear + Brilliant treatments take 30 minutes or less on average, making it an excellent lunchtime appointment.

Planning Your Clear + Brilliant Strategy

The exact number of treatments needed for the best results will vary based on your skin and your goals. However, studies have shown that most clients achieve their best results after 4 – 6 treatments. A lot of people also choose to undergo routine maintenance Clear + Brilliant treatments every few months to maintain their results. Every Clear + Brilliant treatment plan is customized for each patient, and this journey begins with a consultation.

Men and women of all skin tones have found this laser to be a great means of preventing and reversing early signs of aging. Skin feels softer and more toned after a Clear + Brilliant treatment, and you’ll start to see a radiance emerge 1 – 2 weeks after your first treatment. Results will continue to improve and can last for several months depending on your age, the condition of your skin, and how well you protect your skin after your treatment.

All chemical peels at RefinedMD require two steps. First, the outermost layer of the skin is removed. Next, new cell growth is stimulated in the deepest layers of the skin. The end results? You’ll look younger, healthier, and your self-esteem will skyrocket. Don’t worry, though, we won’t let you get to Kanye-level arrogance with your new skin.

What to Expect with Clear + Brilliant

Although Clear + Brilliant is considered a “pre-juvenation” laser and is ideal for patients just starting to struggle with signs of aging (or who are quick to prevent them), this laser can be effective for patients of all ages. Lifestyles, environmental factors, and sun exposure can all create skin that looks dull and tired. Clear + Brilliant is a fast and easy way to erase signs of aging and bring a glow back to your skin.

This non-invasive treatment is designed to be gentle, but a topical numbing agent may be applied for maximum comfort. The Intelligent Optical Tracking proprietary technology makes sure that the ideal contact with your skin is sustained throughout the short treatment, resulting in a uniform application.

Although Clear + Brilliant is gentle on the skin, it still delivers noticeable and beautiful results. If you’re considering Clear + Brilliant or any laser for a special event, it’s a good idea to schedule your appointment a few weeks in advance to show off ultimate results.
