Clear + Brilliant® Laser
If you’d like to keep your skin soft and radiant, Clear and Brilliant is a “beginner” laser skin treatment that could be just what you’re looking for. Clear and Brilliant is a gentle fractional laser our Scottsdale patients choose as an alternative to more aggressive resurfacing. It’s popular with younger women and men and people of any age who would rather have gradual results than days or weeks of downtime.

What does the Clear and Brilliant laser do?
Safe for all skin types on the face, neck, décolletage, and hands, Clear and Brilliant provides a variety of rejuvenating benefits, including:
- Softening fine lines
- Reducing enlarged pores
- Enhancing tone and texture
- Restoring a healthy glow
- Maintaining youthful radiance and texture
- Correcting early signs of aging and sun damage
Because Clear and Brilliant is not a corrective laser, people with more advanced signs of aging and sun damage are better suited for laser skin resurfacing treatments.
What is better Clear and Brilliant or microneedling?
Both treatments create microinjuries in the skin that trigger the healing process and production of collagen. Clear and Brilliant is a non-ablative fractional laser so it does not harm the skin’s surface. It is gentler than microneedling and best for superficial concerns. Microneedling penetrates the deeper dermis, and it can reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, in addition to providing the same benefits as Clear and Brilliant.

How painful is Clear and Brilliant?
We apply numbing cream before Clear and Brilliant treatments so there is little if any discomfort.
What happens after a Clear and Brilliant laser treatment?
Treated skin will look red and feel warm initially, similar to a mild sunburn. Redness typically lasts for 2 to 3 days, followed by dryness and flaking. Within a week or 2, the skin becomes softer and brighter.
How many Clear and Brilliant treatments does it take to see results?
Most patients need a series of 3 to 5 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart, depending on their cosmetic goals and the condition of their skin.
