How does a Clear + Brilliant laser treatment work?
A Typical Clear + Brilliant Treatment:
Requires about 45 minutes for a complete session
May involve application of topical numbing cream to your face prior to treatment in order to provide additional comfort
Is delivered by your skin care professional, who will gently guide the Clear + Brilliant handpiece across the target area and actively treat your skin for approximately 15 minutes
Utilizes the patented Intelligent Optical Tracking™ System to ensure your skin care professional maintains proper contact with your skin and provides a uniform application to all treated areas
With Clear + Brilliant Perméa treatments, a topical antioxidant serum will be applied to the skin immediately after treatment. A refreshing biocellulose masque may also be applied for 10-15 minutes after treatment
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?
If possible, come to your appointment without makeup. When undergoing a Clear + Brilliant laser skin treatment, your skin will be cleansed and prepared; a quick view of your skin will determine the right setting for the laser, based on the amount of melanin in your skin and the location of the blemishes or acne.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Immediately post treatment, you may experience some redness and mild swelling, but both typically diminish in about 12 hours
Over the next few days, you may experience some itchiness or skin sensitivity (to touch or temperature). Both are indications of the natural renewal process and typically dissipate a few days after treatment. You may also experience major dryness.
Most typical skin care products and practices can be used immediately after treatment – your skin care professional will talk to you about any products to avoid following treatment.
WARNING – This treatment is not suitable if you have been on medication or roaccutaine within the last year.
