FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF CLEAR + BRILLIANT LASER?
Clear + Brilliant uses fractional laser technology. This means that the laser energy is divided into an array of tiny beams to treat only a portion of the skin while leaving the rest unaffected. The treatment is frequently referred to as "baby" or "little" Fraxel since it only eliminates 20% of the skin's surface as opposed to the 25% to 40% that is removed (or ablated) with the Fraxel laser. Although you will require more than one treatment, it requires no downtime. So a series of sessions is the best way to see results from this therapy.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE TREATMENT?
A typical Clear + Brilliant® Treatment starts with a consultation to determine whether Clear + Brilliant® is the best approach for your skin goals. A typical session lasts roughly 30 minutes. Prior to treatment with the Clear + Brilliant laser, you might be asked to apply a topical numbing lotion to your face to increase comfort. During the actual procedure, our laser practitioner will gently move the Clear + Brilliant® handpiece across the target area and actively treat your skin for approximately 20 minutes. Take comfort in knowing that the treatment makes use of the unique Intelligent Optical Tracking® technology to ensure optimal skin contact and uniform application to all treated areas.
DOES IT HURT TO GET CLEAR + BRILLIANT?
Although there is no real pain, each pulse of light causes some warmth to the skin. Most patients, however, find it to be very tolerable. We sometimes advise using numbing cream to make the whole experience as pleasant as possible. A simple topicaine numbing cream can ensure all the comfort you may need during the procedure.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
They don't call it brilliant for nothing! Many patients noticeably transform their skin after just one 30-minute Clear + Brilliant laser treatment at StudioMD. However, we typically recommend a course of four treatments spaced out over three to four months to restore the full youthfulness and radiance of your skin. The number of treatments will be tailored to your concerns and skincare desires, during your complimentary consultation at StudioMD Soho.
IS THERE ANY AFTERCARE INVOLVED?
The non-invasive nature of Clear + Brilliant treatments means that you can resume your normal activities with little to no downtime. Any redness or swelling will be mild and will normally subside within a few hours to a few days because the treatment is specifically intended to minimize adverse side effects. Following treatment, you might notice a sandpaper-like sensation that lasts for around 3 to 7 days. It is critical not to exfoliate. Keep in mind that being consistent with a good skincare routine is key for maintaining your results.
