Clear + Brilliant Gentle Laser = Gorgeous Skin & No Downtime 

Posted December 30, 2014 in Laser

Okay, we knew it was good, but we’ve been blown away by our patients’ enthusiastic response to the Clear + Brilliant laser skin treatment since we added it to our practice this summer. Oftentimes, catchy advertising claims amount only to overblown hype, but in the case of Clear + Brilliant, our patients consistently say that the results they  see live up to the name.

Clear & Brilliant is a gentle laser treatment that works to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out through laser energy that creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in the skin. This action stimulates the body to produce healthy, younger-looking skin to replace the older, damaged tissue, which ultimately produces the following benefits:

  • visibly more radiant, glowing skin tone
  • a smoother, ultra-soft skin texture
  • a noticeable reduction in the appearance of pores

Our patients say they love the Clear + Brilliant because it delivers the more dramatically noticeable improvement of a skin laser procedure without the downtime many such treatments require. After a Clear + Brilliant session, the skin typically appears sunburned for about 24 hours, may have light flaking and a temporary sand papery feel that is not visible to others.

ACPS Medical Spa patient Natalie became a devotee to the Clear + Brilliant based upon the results she saw after just one session. As a mother of 5, Natalie regularly had treated herself to a microdermabrasion treatments to smooth and tighten her skin and soften the squint lines around her eyes.

When Wendy Pell, a licensed esthetician at ACPS, invited her to participate in the practice’s trial of Clear + Brilliant, Natalie was amazed at the difference she saw in her skin after experiencing the new treatment: the large pores on her chin and around her nose appeared to have shrunk even on the drive home, and she noticed more serious repair of the fine lines around her eyes.

As someone who spends a lot of time outdoors and prefers to skip makeup and wear sunscreen only, Natalie has a naturally fresh-faced appearance that became even more radiant after her laser session.  She noted, “When I saw my daughter who was away at college, she asked me if I’d had BOTOX, and she commented, ‘Your skin looks so bright! What are you doing?”

Since having the Clear +Brilliant, Natalie regularly receives compliments on her skin’s youthful glow and fresh appearance, leading even her neighbor, who’d long teased Natalie for her clockwork-like approach to having a microdermabrasion treatment and haircut every six weeks, to exclaim “I have got to do that!”

Said Pell, who has been with ACPS for 17 years, “Since we introduced Clear + Brilliant, everyone has loved it. Anyone can have the treatment done, especially those who want an illuminated skin tone, smoother texture, and a reduction in the appearance of pores. Because the treatment can be completed in less than an hour, it’s perfect for those who want to do a more invasive procedure without the downtime that’s typically required.”
