Q: When do the results appear and how long do they last?
A: The results of treatment are both immediate and progressive. A few days after the treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter and show more even tone. Results can last for months depending on your age, skin condition and how you protect the skin.
Q: Can I get Clear + Brilliant treatments if I’ve already had other procedures?
A: Clear + Brilliant procedures may be complementary to most other cosmetic procedures, like Fraxel, fillers or even Botox. Clear + Brilliant is a great way to protect the investment you have made in your skin, maintaining, extending and improving upon the results you´ve already seen. For best results, you will need to discuss your past procedures, any future procedures you may be considering as well as your current expectations during your consultation.
Q: How long is a treatment?
A: Clear + Brilliant treatments take about 20 minutes. However, most patients are asked to come in about 30 minutes before their treatment so that we can apply a topical anesthetic ointment, which helps minimize any discomfort during the treatment.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: The number of treatments you will need depends on your desired outcome. In recent studies, consumers reported visible improvements after 4-6 treatments. We will discuss your concerns and skin care desires and create a personalized treatment regime with you.
Q: Is Clear + Brilliant safe?
A: The Clear + Brilliant treatment is very safe when preformed by our trained technicians. During your consultation, we will evaluate your skin and recommend the best course of treatment as well as discuss any risks and downtime.
Q: Does the Clear + Brilliant treatment hurt?
A: Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. We will apply a topical anesthetic ointment before your procedure, which helps minimize any discomfort during the treatment. We will also provide a cooling gel or cooling packs after the procedure to minimize any residual heat sensation.
Q: What will I look like immediately after the procedure? Can I go right back to work?
A: Clear + Brilliant treatments are very gentle and are specifically designed to minimize the side effects of typical laser treatments. You may experience some redness and subtle inflammation right after the treatment. These generally resolve within a few hours, but may last until the next day.
