Clear + Brilliant®

Sun, genetics, and aging can cause a number of skin concerns regularly seen at Art of Dermatology at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York, but with the Clear + Brilliant® Laser system, Dr. Krant can help you reduce fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and dullness with only a few treatment sessions.


What is Clear and Brilliant?

Clear + Brilliant is an FDA-cleared fractional laser treatment system that offers two wavelengths of light to improve the complexion. The original C+B laser uses 1440 nanometers to target the pores, fine lines, and skin tone, while the Clear + Brilliant Permea uses 1927 nanometers to target pigmentation, sun spots, and dullness. Together, they can completely transform the look and feel of your skin.


How Does the Clear + Brilliant Laser Work?

The Clear + Brilliant Laser system works by heating areas of the outermost layer of the skin in a microgrid, leaving uninjured cells between to aid healing. By targeting specific areas of skin with laser energy, the system encourages cell turnover, stimulates collagen production, and increases firmness. The damaged skin is replaced with a more youthful, rejuvenated layer of skin. 

Clear + Brilliant also uses a patented Intelligent Optical Tracking™ System (IOTS™) to ensure proper contact with your skin for uniform treatment. This also increases safety since the laser will not fire unless the handpiece is against your skin and being rolled by the physician.


Who is a Good Candidate for Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatment?

Men and women looking to subtly address a variety of skin concerns are good candidates for the Clear + Brilliant Laser system. It works on all skin tones and skin types and is perfect for patients struggling with pigmentation issues, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and uneven skin texture.


Clear and Brilliant Procedure

On the day of your treatment, Dr. Krant will apply a topical anesthetic cream to ensure your comfort. You’ll also be given protective eyewear. After the cream has been on for 30 or more minutes, Dr. Krant will glide the Clear + Brilliant handpiece over your skin. The intensity level of the laser energy will be customized to suit your skin tone and your skin concerns. At most, you’ll feel a prickly or scratching sensation.

Treatment typically takes 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.


Recovery & Results

After treatment, you may experience some mild redness, swelling, discomfort, and itchiness. These side effects will typically subside after a few days. You’ll want to avoid excess sun exposure and strenuous exercise and keep your skin clean as you heal. 

The results will start to show up after about a week, but more significant results take about a month to fully appear as the skin heals and builds up collagen. Your skin will continue to improve over the next few months after treatment.

While one Clear + Brilliant laser treatment will significantly improve your skin, Dr. Krant recommends 3-4 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart for the ultimate skin rejuvenation.


Frequently Asked Questions about Clear + Brilliant

How many sessions of Clear + Brilliant are needed?

As with any laser treatment, one session should always be helpful but more may be needed to address particular issues based on what the problem is, what your skin type is, what your overall skin regimen is, and how comfortable your physician is with the device settings.

How painful is Clear + Brilliant?

Some people are able to tolerate Clear + Brilliant laser treatments without any numbing at all, but most people do best with topical numbing cream applied for 30 to 60 minutes prior to treatment.

Does Clear + Brilliant tighten skin?

Clear + Brilliant laser does not technically tighten skin, though it does refresh collagen and may make the skin feel plumper and seem tighter. Certainly within about the first month, there is still some microscopic swelling and healing happening so skin may feel tighter for a while.

Does Clear + Brilliant build collagen?

Clear + Brilliant laser treatments, like all treatments that create micro-injury in the skin, do trigger new collagen formation over time.

Do you peel after Clear + Brilliant?

There may be some dryness in the first two weeks after Clear + Brilliant laser treatment as the microscopically injured cells slough off, but the skin does not generally peel in sheets as it might after a chemical peel.

How long does it take to see results from Clear + Brilliant?

Clear + Brilliant results may start to appear as soon as one week but the full results from any given session are generally more visible at the one-month mark, and longer-term as the deeper collagen building does not even start until 2 or more months after the laser session.

Is Clear + Brilliant good for anti-aging?

Clear + Brilliant is a relatively gentle fractionated laser resurfacing that does have anti-aging benefits, especially if multiple sessions are completed over time.

What are the long-term effects of Clear + Brilliant?

Clear + Brilliant, as its name states, leads to brighter, refreshed skin overall. Patients report noticing a glow, more even pigmentation, and a smoother texture.

Does Clear + Brilliant shrink pores?

No laser permanently shrinks pores, but like many, Clear +Brilliant may have the effect of temporarily reducing the appearance of pore size. This is not a long term effect.

Does Clear + Brilliant remove facial hair?

Clear + Brilliant laser should not affect facial hair since the hair follicles are deeper underneath the surface of the skin. It also does not work as a hair removal laser, if that is your goal.
