What can New Orleans, LA patients achieve with Clear and Brilliant treatments?By Dr. Mary Lupo
Clear and Brilliant is a Fraxel laser that delivers pixels of lights into the skin, tens of thousands at a time. It can be used to treat brown spots, mild acne scars, and mild fine lines and wrinkles. This handheld device uses a roller ball and laser. Patients typically describe the treatment as a heated, prickling sensation to the skin.
Clear and Brilliant is a gentler option with less downtime than most chemical peels and other lasers, which can cause deep flaking and crusting. Patients may experience some redness that will last approximately 8 hours, and the skin may feel like sandpaper for a few days due to the micro-exfoliation of the skin. Patients may feel a sunburn-like sensation on the skin for approximately a half hour after their appointment. They can cover their skin with makeup immediately afterwards. Treatment sessions should be scheduled approximately two to four weeks apart, and four to six treatments may be recommended for optimum results.
Clear and Brilliant is great option for patients who are looking for clearer skin, smoother texture, and fewer brown spots. Proper skin care should be maintained between treatments. The face, arms, legs, chest, and other areas of the body can also be addressed with this treatment.
Patients in their 20’s can start taking control of the way they look by working in regular Clear and Brilliant treatments at Dr. Mary Lupo’s practice in New Orleans. This laser skin enhancer can help patients maintain the appearance of youthful skin.
