What is Clear + Brilliant®?

The Clear + Brilliant® laser is FDA-approved and optimized for preventing and addressing early signs of aging including skin texture, firmness, elasticity, and pore-size appearance. It has been one of our favorite energy devices as it provides less invasive and affordable treatments with minimal downtime that can be preventative as well as restorative. Several patients notice improved skin appearance and a “glow” almost immediately, and it is a great introductory laser for patients who do not need more intensive treatments or want to avoid downtime.

This treatment works by creating micro-thermal zones in the skin, stimulating new collagen production for overall skin rejuvenation. Clear + Brilliant is a great option to address skin concerns such as early signs of aging, uneven skin tone and texture, sun damage, large pores, and more.

The Permea treatment combines the Clear and Brilliant laser with a topical antioxidant treatment. The special Permea handpiece is optimized for brighter, more even skin tone and enhanced skin permeability.

Why Choose UnionDerm for Clear + Brilliant® Treatments?

All of our physicians have been using Clear + Brilliant since their cosmetic fellowships and trainings, and are long-time experts in the use of the device. We are currently participating in two clinical trials that are examining the safety and effectiveness of Clear + Brilliant to treat the neck and chest area and another that’s looking at the Permea portion of the Clear + Brilliant System to treat melasma. We are pioneers in combining Clear + Brilliant with other treatments such as photodynamic therapy. Our combination treatment on the chest was shown to improve the skin appearance on the chest more than photodynamic therapy alone.

What Can I Expect with Clear + Brilliant®?

This non-invasive and gentle treatment is ideal for individuals of all skin types. A topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure your comfort. Our medical professional will then gently guide the Clear + Brilliant® handpiece across the target area and actively treat your skin, creating microscopic treatment zones, for approximately 15-20 minutes. Patients may experience a well-tolerated heating sensation.

Following treatment, minor redness and swelling may occur, which usually resolves within an hour. It is important that patients follow the instructions provided to them by our team following their laser energy treatment to ensure optimal results. This may involve avoiding sun damage due to sun exposure with the use of sunscreen and protective clothing. Makeup can be applied following treatment to cover redness if desired.

Most patients can begin to notice a visible improvement in their skin within a few days of treatment and greater improvement with a series of treatments. Results will continue to improve over the next couple of months as collagen continues to generate, resulting in a healthy glow and younger-looking skin.
