Brilliant Distinctions

Brilliant Distinction Program



We all age, and the sooner we begin taking good care of our skin, the better it will look later. Clear + Brilliant resurfacing laser treatment will help reveal your skin’s youthful glow, luminosity and smoothness.

How does Clear & Brilliant laser work?

Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser that renews and revitalizes your skin from the inside out. The laser creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue.

What results can I expect from Clear & brilliant laser?

Clear + Brilliant laser not only addresses unwanted signs of aging—such as sun spots, wrinkles and scars—but also gives you:

•    Visibly illuminated skin tone
•    Naturally radiant and glowing skin
•    Improved smoothness, texture and radiance
•    Reduction in the appearance of pores

Is the Clear & Brilliant laser for darker skin types?

The Clear + Brilliant laser is a gentle skin resurfacing laser safe for all skin types, including darker complexions. However, we recommend that all patients first consult with one of our providers or aestheticians first to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure(s).

What can I expect during the Clear & Brilliant laser treatment?

After your consultation with your provider or aesthetician, we begin by taking a before photo. Afterward, we apply a strong topical numbing ointment to the face and wait about 30 minutes for it to take effect. Then we remove the numbing ointment and start the treatment. The laser treatment takes only about 15-20 minutes for the face or neck and chest areas.

After the treatment, the skin appears temporarily red and hot to the touch—similar to a sunburn. To help ease any discomfort, we have you relax with a cooling face pack for about 10-15 minutes. When you are ready to leave, we apply sunscreen to the treated area.

How many treatments of the Clear & Brilliant laser do I need?

You can see a significant difference even after one treatment. But, you may need anywhere from 3-5 treatments to get the best results depending on your level of skin damage. You may repeat the treatment as often as once a month to maintain that beautiful look.

What is the before and after care for the Clear & Brilliant laser?

Please inform your medical provider or aesthetician of all the skin care products that you use as well as any medications that you are taking before the treatment. Avoid using any Retin-A (tretinoin) or products containing tretinoin for 2 weeks prior to the treatment and for 2 weeks after the treatment. Do not use Clarisonic or other types of vibrating brush for 2 weeks after the procedure. Do not use “acid” containing products on the area to be treated for at least 1 week. You should not have taken Accutane for at least 1 year.
