The Science Behind Clear + Brilliant
Clear + Brilliant is a fractional laser designed to generate millions of microscopic treatment zones in the skin’s upper layers. This process stimulates collagen production and eliminates dead cells. This results in a healthy and refreshed skin appearance.
This gentle laser resurfacing treatment was FDA-approved in 2011 and is clinically proven with over 20 published clinical studies. The Clear + Brilliant application rejuvenates the skin by focusing on the early signs of facial aging, sun damage, skin tone, skin texture, and the minimization of pore size. The treatment is among the most popular laser skin resurfacing options in Portland and nationwide.
FAQs for Portland Laser Rejuvenation
The outer layers of skin are like barriers to protect the underlying tissue from harm. When the top layers become damaged, the cells are not replaced quickly as needed. Our laser skin resurfacing in Portland, Clear + Brilliant helps boost your skin’s health by accelerating skin cell regeneration.
After your Portland laser rejuvenation treatment, your skin will have a more even tone and texture and feel smoother. The production of collagen will help make your skin more firm. Our Facial Laser Resurfacing in Portland will enhance your skin’s radiance from the inside out.
Our Portland laser rejuvenation treatment, Clear + Brilliance utilizes a gentle laser moving across the skin’s problem areas to stimulate collagen and skin cell regeneration. It is a safe procedure with little to no risk of serious injury or complications.
Immediately after your treatment, your skin will feel warm and may look like you’re blushing. However, this effect typically goes away overnight. Some redness may remain for up to a week of receiving the treatment. But once the inner layers of your skin heal, you’ll start seeing a glowing and refreshed appearance on the surface.
Everyone responds slightly differently to laser therapy. However, you can expect to start noticing the results from your first Clear + Brilliant treatment after one to two weeks, with ongoing improvements for the next one to two months. For maximum benefits, we may recommend a series of three Clear + Brilliant sessions spaced out over several weeks.
As a fractional laser, Clear + Brilliant targets tiny columns of the skin in the specific treatment area, which helps reduce recovery time after the procedure. Your complexion will look naturally rejuvenated, with a healthier glow.
Clear + Brilliant allows you to customize your laser experience specifically for your areas of concern. For instance, if you only want to minimize signs of sun damage around your forehead, you can get treatment for that area alone.
Clear + Brilliant and intense pulsed light are two examples of non-ablative lasers. That means they do not remove a layer of your skin, allowing for less swelling, redness, and recovery time. They also work well for the same areas of concern, including your face, neck, chest, and hands.
Since both laser options can deliver excellent results and simultaneously resolve multiple issues, the best way to determine which is better for you is to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Key.
Clear + Brilliant encourages your skin to start producing collagen, which leads to firmer and more youthful skin. This treatment reduces wrinkles and fine lines for a smoother and younger-looking complexion.
After you’ve completed your Clear + Brilliant treatment regimen, here are some basic aftercare instructions.
- Do not apply makeup for at least one to three days after each appointment.
- Since lasers make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, avoid prolonged sun exposure and apply a broad-spectrum SPF when you must go outdoors.
- Do not smoke. Cigarettes contain hundreds of toxic chemicals that age you more rapidly and can also impede healing after skin care procedures.
