Clear + Brilliant is a safe, non-surgical, and non-invasive treatment. The gentle fraxel laser fights the natural effects ageing has on the skin, helping to improve tone and texture giving the skin a radiant youthful glow.
The treatment creates a more even skin canvas reducing the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. It’s the perfect complement to individual beauty and lifestyle regimens.
Our receptionist Lauren went under the laser earlier this month so we asked her a few questions to find out all about what the treatment involves…
1. Why were you interested in getting a clear and brilliant Facial?
I was really interested in having this treatment as I am always looking for that miracle treatment to keep my skin looking young and I find I have some larger pores I would like to smooth out.
2. How much did you know about the treatment before you had your first?
I didn’t know a lot about the treatment. I knew it is non-invasive, involved anaesthetic, and was relatively short to carry out. However my therapist gave me a full run down of the treatment before it began to ensure I was aware of everything that would happen.
3. How did the treatment feel on your face?
I could feel a slight drag on the skin, and it felt warm. I have slightly touch sensitive skin so it was great to find that there are different settings for different skin types and sensitivity. I wouldn’t say it’s a relaxing treatment like a normal facial, however the cooling mask that was applied near the end was lovely and soothing on my skin.
4. Some say after the treatment the skin can feel a little uncomfortable, did yours feel this way?
I didn’t feel my skin was in pain. The best way to describe it is my face felt very warm as if I had spent too much time in the sun. My face was slightly pink however this had subsided within a few hours. I felt ok to visited my local Sainsbury’s straight after the treatment.
5. How long did it take for you to notice an improvement in your skin?
I had the treatment on a Tuesday and I noticed within the next few days my skin needed a heavier moisturiser. However on the Saturday I attended a wedding and I receaved so many compliments on how clear and glowing my skin looked. After a week, I would say my skin no longer needed heavier moisturiser and I could follow my normal skincare regime.
6. Would you have the treatment again?
I would definitely have this treatment again as the results are amazing. I also feel my skin can suffer from hormonal breakouts in and around my jawline and the treatment helped in clearing this for me, which is an added bonus. I’m excited to see the results I will get after 2 or 3 treatments.
