Let’s face it, just because you’re young in years, doesn’t mean you don’t experience skin problems. If you’ve been on the fence about skin rejuvenation, we have the solution.
At Miami Skin and Vein in Coral Gables, we’re happy to offer our patients Clear + Brilliant gentle laser treatments.
Clear + Brilliant is a revolutionary laser skin treatment that is especially great for first time patients in their 20s, 30s, and 40s because it’s clinically proven to facilitate younger looking skin by preventing and reversing the early signs of aging.
Why Choose Clear + Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant is different from more powerful laser technologies. Dr. Patel often refers to Clear + Brilliant as the “baby Fraxel” because it uses similar technology at a lower strength. Clear + Brilliant is effective at revealing radiant, smoother skin with shorter treatment sessions and minimal downtime.
How It Works
The non-ablative laser treatment is done with a specialized device that has a small roller attachment. The device focuses laser energy on the skin, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process. While the skin heals, collagen production increases, resulting in skin that looks and feels younger.
For optimal results, patients need up to six treatments, scheduled once or twice per month. For maintenance, patients can schedule a session every few months.
What Does It Treat?
In addition to improving skin tone and minimizing pores, Clear + Brilliant can be used to treat:
- Fine lines
- Textural changes
Dr. Patel recommends using a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily with reapplication every two hours. Proper diet and exercise along with a daily antioxidant can keep skin looking radiant and vibrant.
How long does it take to receive a Clear + Brilliant treatment?
Clear + Brilliant can work for you even if you have a busy schedule. That’s because it takes as little as 30 minutes to receive a complete treatment session!
Your total appointment time may vary depending on the areas you want to target. It will also take longer than average if you choose to pair Clear + Brilliant with a complementary service. And if this is your first time getting lasered at our clinic, remember to block off another 30-45 minutes for a consultation.
How long do results from a Clear + Brilliant treatment last?
Results from a Clear + Brilliant laser treatment can last for months. Factors such as your age and skin condition play a role in the exact longevity of your new look.
Taking care of your skin is a great way to make your results last longer. Wear sunscreen, eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and drink plenty of water. Consider using products from a professional skin care line to get even more out of your treatment. These simple steps will go a long way toward keeping your skin smooth and radiant.
How many Clear + Brilliant treatments will I need?
It takes several Clear + Brilliant treatments to achieve optimal results. Most of our patients start with a series of four to six sessions scheduled several weeks apart. From there, you should consider getting routine treatments as part of your overall skincare regimen.
It might work best for you to schedule a maintenance appointment every few months. Dr. Shaun Patel will gladly create a personalized Clear + Brilliant treatment schedule that works for you. Follow-up sessions continually improve your results while slowing early signs of aging.
Are there any risks associated with Clear + Brilliant treatments?
You may notice some redness, swelling, or discomfort after a Clear + Brilliant treatment. It’s not uncommon to experience itchy skin, a new breakout, or the formation of milia.
These side effects are mild and temporary. You can help prevent them by following our treatment tips. If you have a history of cold sores, we may prescribe Valtrex to take before your appointment.
How can I prepare for a Clear + Brilliant treatment?
You don’t need to do much to get ready for Clear + Brilliant. You’ll be asked to avoid a few things in order to promote an effective treatment and great results. If you’re unsure if something is safe to use prior to getting Clear + Brilliant, don’t hesitate to reach out to our clinic!
Stay away from sun tanning and self-tanning for a month before your appointment. Don’t get waxed, apply depilatory cream, or use other irritating hair removal treatments for two weeks. Take a break from aggressive topical skin care products such as retinol, tretinoin, glycolic and salicylic acid, and astringents for a week before getting Clear + Brilliant, and you’ll be good to go!
