After a single treatment session, many patients enjoy softer, brighter-looking, and more evenly toned skin. Depending on the nature of your concerns and needs, we may recommend around three to five more treatment sessions.
Results are long-lasting, as long as you protect your skin from further damage from sources such as UV light. Results also depend on your “starting” point, such as your age and overall skin condition. Since there is no cutting, scalpels, or invasive techniques and tools associated with Clear + Brilliant Bend patients have nothing to heal from, and you can go about your business immediately after treatment. 541-508-7907
CLEAR + BRILLIANT Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Clear + Brilliant Treatment?
This gentle laser technology is designed to improve the appearance of early signs of aging and for “rejuvenation.”
What is "Prejuvenation"?
It’s a movement! The idea is, “Why correct wrinkles, spots, dryness, and other signs of aging when I can prevent it?” Clear + Brilliant is a powerful tool to do just that; halt the effects and stop the visible signs of sun damage from forming in the first place.
How Does Clear + Brilliant Work?
In the hands of skilled Certified Advanced Estheticians and Providers, the Clear + Brilliant fractional laser device is directed toward the treatment area. The produced energy is delivered to promote a process of resurfacing; the damaged skin is replaced with fresh and new tissue.
What Is Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
Fractional lasers create microscopic treatment zones. So, instead of the tissue being treated all at once, the tissue is divided into tiny areas. A fraction of skin is treated at a time.
What Are The Benefits?
The Clear + Brilliant laser design promotes the most gentle, well-tolerated, low-risk, and no-downtime process possible.
Could I Benefit From Clear + Brilliant?
We won’t know for sure until we evaluate your skin and discuss your goals and preferences. Generally, Clear + Brilliant is an excellent preventive treatment and helps minimize lines, visible pores, uneven tone, leathery texture, and discoloration (such as melasma).
Can It Help With My Deep Wrinkles?
Clear + Brilliant is best for earlier or more minor signs of sun damage and aging, for instance, modest lines and hyperpigmentation. We are happy to review other options for treatment with you as needed.
Is The Product FDA-Cleared?
Yes! Solta Medical achieved FDA clearance for the Clear + Brilliant system several years ago, in 2011. It was observed at the time of the announcement that this technology was creating and defining a new category of laser treatments designed for younger patients who want to have more control over the aging process.
Is Treatment Painful?
No. For starters, the system is non-invasive. No cutting. No needles. For utmost comfort, we may apply a numbing product before the application of the laser and use a zimmer for cold air throughout the procedure.
What Are The Side Effects?
Minor and temporary. You may notice some red discoloration, tenderness, swelling, itching, pimples, or white dots (milia) post-treatment. Again, these conditions should resolve in a couple of days.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
Your skilled Certified Advanced Esthetician and Provider uses a handpiece to guide the Clear + Brilliant device over your skin. Built-in technology supports precision, uniform, and comfortable treatment. A serum and cooling masque may be applied, and you can also use the system to aid in the absorption of effective skincare products, which increases their effectiveness!
How Long is Each Treatment?
Yes! The actual application of the laser only takes about 20 to 40 minutes. The entire treatment may only require about 60 minutes.
How Many Treatment Sessions Are Necessary To Get Results?
It is very patient-specific. Generally, patients may get the improvement that they desire within around four to six treatment sessions. That depends on the nature and severity of your concerns and your goals, and expected progress. Some patients may choose to make this a routine part of their skin care regimen.
What Recovery Is Involved?
There is nothing to recover from! Your skin may be a little flushed, warm, and feel leathery right afterward, which usually goes away after a day.
What Precautions Should I Take?
Your skin may be more sensitive following treatment. We encourage you to take extra care to avoid damage from the sun and to protect your skin from UV light. Sweat can also irritate your skin. So, you may wish to refrain from exercises that involve lots of sweat for 24 to 48 hours afterward.
When Can I See Results?
Some changes are instant. However, it only takes a week or two for your skin to look noticeably healthier and more youthful. Our patients notice a renewed glow, improved tone, and their skin feels silkier to the touch.
How Long Do The Results Last?
Months. But that all depends on your skin condition to start with and on how well you protect and care for it afterward.
How Long Do I Have to Wait Between Treatments?
Additional sessions or maintenance treatments can be spaced anywhere from a week to a month apart due to the treatment’s gentle and non-invasive nature. We’ll make recommendations based partly on your skin’s unique characteristics and needs.
Is Clear + Brilliant Safe For All Skin Types and Tones?
Yes! It is safe and low risk for all skin tones. However, we will discuss options and considerations if you have a history of herpes, acne, and eczema flare-ups.
What Are Some Other Alternative Options That We May Consider?
There are many procedures and products that treat the conditions Clear + Brilliant addresses, for instance, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, IPL, and microneedling. Clear + Brilliant may also be safely paired with other cosmetic treatments, including RF Microneedling, Botox and dermal fillers, for complete and dramatic (yet natural) rejuvenation.
How Much Does Treatment Cost?
The total cost varies from person to person and depends at least partly on the number of treatment sessions that you want or need and the areas you are treating. We look forward to discussing ways to make Clear + Brilliant treatment a reality for you.
