Clear + Brilliant treatments on the face, chest, and hands provide a variety of benefits:
A topical numbing cream will be applied by one of our medical assistants 30 minutes prior to your treatment to ensure comfort. After this numbing period, one of our trained RNs will perform your treatment. The Clear + Brilliant laser energy will create millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue.

Clear + Brilliant Perméa extends the benefits of Clear + Brilliant treatments by increasing the skin’s permeability. Working in tandem with the specialized Perméa handpiece, C E Ferulic® by SkinCeuticals — a topical product applied immediately after the laser treatment — penetrates deeply into the skin to optimize results, helping redness and swelling to dissipate quickly.
Your skin will feel hot and have a “sunburned” look typically for 1 hour, and up to 24 hours, after your treatment. Swelling is not common but can occur. You can apply makeup immediately following treatment to camouflage this appearance. The treatment area will also feel rough or “sandpaper-like” for 5 to 7 days and will exfoliate slowly.
Typically, patients report seeing visible improvements following a series of 4 to 6 treatments, although patient experiences vary. Our staff will discuss a personalized regime for your to help achieve your goals.
