Clear + Brilliant Facial Treatment | Chatham, New Jersey
Laser Skin Institute Medical & Aesthetic Dermatology is excited to now offer Clear + Brilliant, a new approach to laser skin enhancement. Clear + Brilliant is one of the most gentle and effective laser treatments available. Often described as the ‘starter’ laser or ‘mini Fraxel’, its intensity falls between receiving a microdermabrasion treatment and a more intense Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing procedure.
The Clear + Brilliant Facial Treatment is perfect for preventing and reversing early signs of aging and correcting minor sun damage. What you do in your 20s and 30s directly affects how your skin looks in your 40s, 50s and beyond. Adding Clear + Brilliant to your skin care regimen – at any age – will help you recover the glow, luminosity and smoothness your skin deserves. Clear + Brilliant Facial Treatments are ideal for anyone who wants a more advanced treatment than their current skincare regimen, but doesn’t need the full transformative benefits of a more intensive laser skin resurfacing procedure or for those who cannot afford any down time.
How Clear + Brilliant Works
Clear + Brilliant is a non-ablative fractional laser penetrating the skin at a light depth. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue. The regenerative action provided by the non-damaged tissue left behind is what actually rejuvenates the skin.
Being this is a light depth laser, it is recommended to have 3-6 treatments performed spaced 4-6 weeks apart for maximum benefit. Treatments are customized to each individual patient. Each treatment lasts from 20-40 minutes depending on the extent of the area being treated (face, neck and/or chest)
The procedure itself has minimal discomfort which is alleviated by applying a mild topical numbing cream 20 minutes prior. Afterwards you will experience a warm sensation that dissipates quickly and your skin will be mildly pink for 1-2 days. Makeup can be applied immediately. A mild sandpaper like dryness will last from 3-5 days as the skin gently exfoliates revealing a healthier more glowing complexion. During the healing period, it is recommended to use a potent topical vitamin C serum such as CE Ferulic and hydration such as A,C & E Enhanced oil or Hydrating oil capsules twice a day. For individuals trying to minimize pigment Discoloration Defense will be recommended. Sunscreen is highly recommended to be applied as well.
After healing is complete, the CE Ferulic and the other recommended products can be used just once daily in the morning followed by sunscreen. At this point other products such as retinoids and glycolics can be resumed. All of your skincare will work better as the penetration into the skin is enhanced by this procedure.
