Clear + Brilliant Gentle Laser

Cosmetic Dermatologist Serving Beverly Hills, Larchmont & surrounding areas of Los Angeles

We’re calling this laser “baby Fraxel” since it’s such a kind laser with minimal downtime beyond a little pinkness and mild swelling, both of which diminish in about 12 hours. Clear + Brilliant gentle laser action is confined to the upper layers of the skin where most early aging appears.

Specific treatment goals include

  • Helps prevent and address early signs of aging
  • Younger looking skin
  • Overall skin texture and elasticity
  • The appearance of pores

Clear + Brilliant Laser Before and After | Rebecca Fitzgerald MDThe outer layer of the skin stays functionally intact due to the fractional nature of the treatment, so risk is low and healing is fast. You can even apply makeup immediately and go on about your day.

Because the target of the laser is water, it’s safe and appropriate for all skin types.

Clear + Brilliant Perméa™

The Permea option is a special procedure which prepares the skin with increased permeability. This extra skin disruption makes it easy for topical products to penetrate to effective depths for maximum benefits.

  • Improves tone and radiance
  • Maintains younger looking skin
  • Enhances skin permeability for laser followed by topical skin care
  • Illuminates the skin

In clinical studies, when C E Ferulic® (by SkinCeuticals) was applied immediately after the Clear + Brilliant Perméa treatment, patients reported earlier resolution of redness and swelling.

Since the Perméa handpiece depth is fixed at 170µm, it effectively treats the tissue where melanin resides. Perméa is also safe on all skin types because it targets water, not other color targets such as pigment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can use Clear + Brilliant?

Anyone of any age. C+B is perfect for those who want to try laser but are a little leery. It’s a great way for younger patients to stay ahead of the skin aging curve and keep their skin fresh-looking and even toned.

Does C+B hurt?

The nature of the laser makes it the most comfortable of any of the fractional lasers. It’s not painful, but it’s not a purely painless procedure either. We’ll typically use a topical anesthetic prior to the treatment.
