Clear+Brilliant: Poreless Skin, Anyone?

Just as Gulliver was horrified by the unsightly craters he saw on the skin of people when he was in the land of the giants, large pores can be a real turn-off. The laser treatment known as Clear+Brilliant not only reduces pore size but improves facial skin in other subtle ways.

The skin is often the first indication of aging, although large pores can hassle anyone at any age. For those endowed with small pores, Clear+Brilliant can also slow down aging with regular sessions by encouraging the production of collagen. This enhances the elasticity of the skin and makes it look smoother and glowing.

Clear+Brilliant is still considered laser resurfacing but instead of destroying micro-layers of skin i.e. fractional resurfacing it heats up the skin to tighten it. Consequently, there is practically no downtime and the results are immediate. It is the ideal alternative for people on the go who need to look their best in a hurry. The entire treatment can take less than an hour, so you can skip your lunch break to have it done and be back in the office without anyone being the wiser. You may get comments about being out in the sun too long, but any redness and dryness will dissipate within a couple of days.

Because it is less intense than fractional resurfacing, a patient will experience less pain and discomfort during and after treatment. For a one-time “quickie” treatment for that important date or interview a couple of days hence, this is the best option because it is relatively inexpensive. However, it may take up to 4 monthly sessions to get optimal results and requires maintenance treatments every six months, so the costs can mount up. By comparison, fractional resurfacing can last up to 8 years without follow-up treatments.
