Clear + Brilliant™ Laser at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation
Without question, time is hard on the skin. Years of exposure to the harsh elements, illness, genetics, and the normal aging process can cause the skin to lose its youthful luster and glow. Once the skin becomes dull and dry, it can add years onto the appearance. While nonsurgical facial rejuvenation options are often limited, battling skin changes with topical creams and lotions can prove impossible. However, today’s patients have an exciting new choice in facial rejuvenation: Clear + Brilliant™ from the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation.
Clear + Brilliant™ is an innovative technique designed for maximum skin rejuvenating benefits. The non-ablative laser treatment is powerful enough to restore and refresh aging skin while remaining gentle enough to treat even the most delicate tissue of the face, neck, chest, and hands. Patients looking to refresh dull, tired tissues, improve skin tone and texture, reduce pore size, and minimize areas of mild discoloration can dramatically benefit from Clear + Brilliant™.
Clear + Brilliant™:
- Is safe and gentle
- Improves skin tone and texture
- Leaves tissue brighter, glowing, and more radiant
- Reduces pore size
- Compliments a healthy skincare regime
ABOUT CLEAR + BRILLIANT™
Approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Clear + Brilliant™ is a cutting-edge, nonablative laser treatment designed to reduce the early signs of aging. The treatment creates millions of microscopic injuries in the skin, making the way for younger-looking, healthy cells to appear. Safe for all skin types and ethnicities, Clear + Brilliant™ can provide significant results in both men and women. As Clear + Brilliant™ targets only the top dermal layers, healing time is faster than with traditional non-ablative fractional laser treatments and requires no downtime. Best of all, the results from Clear + Brilliant™ are long-lasting, as the skin’s collagen supplies will naturally continue to increase after treatment.
THE CLEAR + BRILLIANT™ PROCEDURE
Before scheduling a Clear + Brilliant™ treatment at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Miller will be arranged. At this time, he will perform an in-depth evaluation of the facial tissues and explain all of the options for skin rejuvenation. If Clear + Brilliant™ is determined as the best course of treatment to achieve the desired aesthetic results, a personalized treatment plan will be created.
Once the target area has been determined, the Clear + Brilliant™ applicator will be passed over the predetermined area, emitting quick, concentrated pulses of laser energy. As the contoured handpiece moves over the skin, the Clear + Brilliant™ laser instantaneously creates a series of very small columns of heat throughout the skin. These microscopic ‘fractionated’ wounds will help to stimulate new cell growth and, over time, increase the body’s natural production of collagen.
While the Clear + Brilliant™ treatment is not considered painful, Dr. Miller will apply a topical anesthetic or numbing cream will be applied prior to the procedure. Most patients describe their Clear + Brilliant™ treatment as extremely mild, feeling only a warm, prickling heat as the applicator glides across the skin. For additional comfort, as soon as the Clear + Brilliant™ session is over, a cooling agent will be applied to the treated tissue.
CLEAR + BRILLIANT™ RECOVERY AND RESULTS
No downtime is required after a Clear + Brilliant™ session. Most patients are back to their routine activities the same afternoon. At first, the treated skin may be dry and slightly red, although this will normally resolve within 24 hours. Mild swelling may also be seen, but this will fade quickly, as well.
While some patients can see an immediate improvement in the treated skin, maximum tissue renewal will require between four and six sessions, spread about four weeks apart. After this time, patients can expect their skin to feel softer and look more refreshed. Slowly, as healthy cells rise to the surface, and the body’s production of collagen is increased, the skin’s texture will gradually improve and pores will shrink. While Clear + Brilliant™ can provide excellent results on its own. Dr. Miller may also recommend additional techniques to compliment these skin rejuvenation benefits, such as Botox Cosmetic or a soft tissue filler.
