Clear and Brilliant Laser Treatments: Cost, Benefits, Results
Laser facials are truly a wonderful thing – they get rid of hyperpigmentation, smooth skin, improve texture, and leave skin glowing.
You've probably already heard about Fraxel - the laser that became ultra-popular for its ability to make skin feel softer than silk and smooth like butter.
But let’s address a few downsides to Fraxel:
• Extremely intense and painful
• Weeks of downtime
• Not suitable for all skin types
• Not suitable for all skin tones
If you are interested in laser facials, but don’t want to deal with the pain and downtime, allow me to introduce you to Clear + Brilliant.
Clear + Brilliant is a resurfacing laser facial that gives you bright, luminous, rejuvenated skin with little to no downtime. It uses the same technology as Fraxel – but less intense.
Why We Love Clear + Brilliant:
• Quick and Gentle
• Little to No Downtime
• Immediate Visible Results

What is Clear + Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant is a non-ablative fractional laser that is clinically proven to fight the effects of aging.
Often referred to as “Baby Fraxel,” the Clear + Brilliant laser is a step up from a chemical peel, without the downtime.
How does it work?
Clear + Brilliant delivers pulsating beams of light to exfoliate away layers of skin to reveal a smoother, clearer complexion.
It works by creating hundreds of thousands of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, which replaces the damaged layers with fresh and healthy skin.
This improves the permeability of your skin – which means those beneficial ingredients, like vitamin C, are more effective.
What Does Clear + Brilliant Cost?
The cost of a Clear + Brilliant treatment varies based on your location. In NYC the price typically ranges from $400-$1000 per treatment.

Who is a Candidate for Clear + Brilliant?
Almost anyone is an excellent candidate for Clear + Brilliant. Whether you want to extend the younger look of your skin or fight early signs of aging, Clear + Brilliant can help.
In some instances, more intense laser treatment may be specifically recommended to address issues such as skin laxity, deep wrinkles/folds, and acne scarring.
What it Feels Like
The Clear & Brilliant has two handpieces, the Perméa and the Original. For the Original handpiece, which penetrates deeper, we apply a topical numbing cream for half an hour before the treatment.
Many clients describe it to feel like prickly heat. Cooling is administered throughout with the services taking about 30 minutes.
What is the Difference Between the Original & Perméa?
The Clear & Brilliant Perméa hand piece is a gold-standard laser resurfacing treatment that targets dark spots, fine lines, and uneven texture with little to no downtime.
The Perméa hand piece delivers more immediate results – leaving you with bright, radiant, toned skin in the following days and weeks. Its’ popularity is due to it being less invasive and more affordable than other intensive laser treatments.
The Original hand piece is optimized to improve your skin’s texture. The Original has a longer wavelength than the Perméa, which penetrates deeper to stimulate collagen and smooth skin with results taking between 4 and 6 weeks to notice visible results.
Clients who have Clear & Brilliant packages often alternate hand pieces for the most dramatic results.
How long is a Clear + Brilliant treatment?
Clear + Brilliant treatments typically take 30 minutes or less. However, total appointment times may vary based on your skin needs.
When Will I See Results?
Clear + Brilliant results are immediate and progressive with additional treatments.
A few days following your Clear + Brilliant treatment, your skin will feel softer and have improved tone for a youthful, more radiant glow. Results can last for months depending on age, skin condition and how you protect your skin.
You can elevate the results of a Clear + Brilliant treatment by adding on Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), or a PCA Sense Peel.
PRP is the most nutritious and healing substance your body produces! When deposited into the channels created by the Clear & Brilliant, it rapidly stimulates collagen and repairs elastin fibers, which delivers a tightening effect and amplifies the results of the laser.
A PCA Sensi Peel is excellent for clients concerned about sun damage or melasma. It will exfoliate from the top down while new cells are surface from the bottom up.
How Many Treatments Do I need?
Every Clear + Brilliant treatment is expertly tailored to your unique concerns and skincare needs. Generally, clients report significant visible improvements after 4-6 treatments.
Many of our clients continue routine Clear + Brilliant treatments as a part of their skincare regimen.
Your esthetician may recommend a series of treatments or combo treatments to achieve more drastic results depending on your skin needs and goals.
Can I get Clear + Brilliant Treatments If I’ve Had Other Procedures?
Clear + Brilliant is complimentary to a range of cosmetic procedures and treatments such as Botox, fillers or Thermage.
Make sure to talk to your esthetician beforehand to address any questions about combining Clear + Brilliant with other treatments.
If you are new to the world of laser resurfacing, Clear + Brilliant is the perfect treatment to get your feet wet. Suitable for all skin types, this “Baby Fraxel” laser delivers results that speak volumes.
This quick, (relatively) painless and rejuvenating treatment will keep your skin looking youthful, smooth, and bright.
You can maximize your investment in Clear + Brilliant treatments (or any cosmetic procedure) by maintaining a consistent skincare regimen and wearing sunscreen every day with a broad-spectrum SPF of 30+.
