Clear + Brilliant is a gentle fractional laser treatment using the same technology as Fraxel®, its popular “big brother.” Now you can refresh your skin by targeting fine lines and uneven pigmentation without the downtime.

What Is Clear + Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant treatments address a range of skin care concerns using non-ablative fractional laser technology. What that means is the laser gently resurfaces your skin by creating tiny micro-injuries, a process that in turn boosts collagen production. Collagen is one of the essential elements of clear, smooth skin. Because Clear + Brilliant treatments are gentle, most patients need more than 1 treatment to get the desired results if they want to target a specific concern.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
At AlluraDerm MD Med Spa, we recommend Clear + Brilliant laser skin resurfacing to:
- Maintain a youthful appearance (especially for patients who have had Fraxel treatments)
- Renew and refresh the skin’s texture
- Improve the skin’s tone and radiance
- Reduce the appearance of pores
Clear + Brilliant is an excellent treatment to add to your established skin care regimen, or as part of a skin care plan you are just beginning to create. It treats many common skin conditions, such as adult acne, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and other blemishes. It is an excellent treatment for helping you reach and exceed your aesthetic goals, no matter which concerns you are struggling with, from tone and texture issues to stubborn scars. Clear + Brilliant is a great choice for nearly anyone who wants his or her skin to look and feel better.
For patients who may want a more aggressive approach that produces dramatic results, we may recommend Thermage® or Fraxel® re:store treatments. AlluraDerm MD Med Spa is the #1 provider of Thermage® and Fraxel® re:store in New Mexico. We can also pair Clear + Brilliant with other treatments for a comprehensive plan.
What to Expect
After thorough assessment by our aesthetic specialist and board-certified physicians, our laser technician applies a numbing cream to your skin. Even though the procedure is gentle, the cream ensures you are comfortable throughout the treatment. Next, the technician moves a roller featuring tiny plastic bumps repeatedly over the treatment area, creating the micro-injuries and delivering the laser energy. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes, including about 15 minutes of direct treatment.
Immediately after the treatment, the technician applies topical adjuvant therapies that are customized to optimize your results, depending on your specific skin condition.
Redness and mild swelling may occur but typically resolve within 12 hours after the treatment. During the ensuing few days, the skin may feel itchy or sensitive – signs that the collagen renewal process is working.
Because Clear + Brilliant treatments are gentler than virtually all other laser skin resurfacing procedures, the results after a single treatment are modest. Our specialists tailor each treatment plan to the specific needs and skin care concerns of the patient. When treating a specific condition, it usually requires 4 to 6 treatments to get the desired results. You may also consider scheduling Clear + Brilliant procedures on a regular basis as part of your overall skin care plan.Back to Top
