Clear and Brilliant is an FDA-approved resurfacing non-ablative fractional laser with minimal downtime and high safety profile, especially for people of colour. It has no risk of pigmentation and is suitable for all skin colours all year round. It’s comfortable, safe and extremely effective.
The Clear and Brilliant laser is suitable for multiple skin concerns. It improves skin texture, pores, sun damage, pigmentation, scars and fine lines. If you’re looking to up your skincare game and want more than a facial or a peel, this is the right laser for you.
This particular laser's target is water and not the colour of pigmentation like many other lasers, which makes it completely safe for all skin colours. It provides more of a result than a chemical peel and a facial, but it is less invasive than Morpheus 8 or other fractional lasers such as Fraxel. We often combine treatments at the No Filter Clinic for the best results.
There is minimal downtime; you will only have redness for 6 hours and see results from one session. A course of 3-6 sessions is recommended depending on the skin concern.
The Clear and Brilliant is a resurfacing non-ablative fractional laser. Fractional means it breaks the single laser beam into many narrow, smaller light microbeams so a fraction of skin is treated. These microbeams penetrate just below the superficial layer of the skin, creating columns of heat. This stimulates the body's natural healing process and collagen production and encourages cell renewal. The skin surrounding these microcolumns of heat is left untreated, which reduces the risk previously associated with other lasers and allows for much faster recovery.
The laser uniquely combines two different wavelengths. One wavelength targets the deeper layer of the skin to tighten pores, improve skin texture and complexion, and soften wrinkles and fine lines. The newer wavelength, the Perméa, is a potent surface-layer exfoliator, which is great for treating pigmentation and overall skin tone. When you apply specialised bespoke serums after this treatment, the penetration is 17x deeper. For example, you get much faster results if you use something like Vitamin C.
It was FDA approved in 2011 and has been very well-established in the US as one of the most important lasers for dermatologists. Very few clinics in the UK have it at present. It is the only laser we are aware of that is FDA-approved for reducing pore size.
