What is Clear and Brilliant?
Clear and Brilliant is a fractional laser treatment which is used in skin clinics to treat skin challenges such as ageing, pigmentation and scarring.
What happens during the treatment?
Your fully qualified therapist will apply a topical numbing cream for 10-15 minutes. Once the skin feels numb your therapist will remove any excess cream and begin your treatment. The laser applicator is passed over the skin four times; initially you feel little or no sensation however towards the end there may be some mild sensation felt, however, this is not uncomfortable.
Once your therapist has completed the Clear and Brilliant treatment specific finishing products will be applied to your skin and home care advice given. The full treatment time, including anaesthetic is one hour.
How will my skin feel after the treatment?
Directly after your treatment your skin will feel quite tight and warm and will look a little red – this will die down fairly quickly though, it may also be rough to the touch. For the following few days your skin may look a little bit dry, feel a little bit tight and have a flushed appearance to it. You skin will be fine for your normal daily activities such as work, and your therapist will advise you on which of your current home care routine can be used.
When will I see results?
After about 3-7 days any after effects should have gone and from 7 days your fine lines will be smoother, your will look rejuvenated and feel plumper.
Is the treatment suitable for sensitive skin?
The Clear and Brilliant treatment is suitable for sensitive skin types; however you may find your skin will have more redness which may last a little longer than those with a not so sensitive skin, and there may be some mid swelling after treatment. The machine has several settings all which can be adjusted to suit different skin sensitivities and your therapist will run through a thorough consultation to ensure you are suitable for the treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
This differs from client to client and what condition your skin is in and what concern we are treating. On average 3-6 treatments are recommended a minimum of 2 weeks apart for optimum results.
What products can be used with the treatment?
All products are safe to use after the treatment and the clients usual skin care routine can be continued the day after the treatment. If the skin is slightly more sensitive a hydrating moisturiser is recommended. To achieve optimum results we would recommend using Priori or Murad skin care.
