Everything You Need to Know About Clear + Brilliant and How it Can Help Your Skin Look its Best
“Skin care is so much more important than makeup. Makeup is for when you’re having fun and going out. But your skin is forever.”
— Halima Aden, fashion model
How do you feel about your looks?
Research shows one in five Canadian women are unhappy with what they see in the mirror. And while most of us feel unsatisfied with our appearance at one time or another, everyone should be able to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin.
Fortunately, cutting-edge skincare treatments empower women of all ages to make the most of their natural beauty. And Clear + Brilliant, available at Astra Medi Spa, is an excellent example.
Here’s everything you need to know about it.
What is Clear + Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant is a state-of-the-art treatment designed to prevent the visible signs of aging through a gentle, streamlined process. One of our trained professionals moves the handheld device over the target areas to treat:
Clear + Brilliant’s fractional lasers focus on the skin’s upper layers, forming millions of microscopic treatment areas to replace damaged skin. This process stimulates production of healthy skin for a younger, smoother appearance.
Clinical studies show Clear + Brilliant can lead to an overall improvement in the skin’s quality, reduce the visibility of pores and make a clear impact on the appearance of fine lines. It’s effective, quick and suitable for all skin types.
Another main benefit of Clear + Brilliant is the lack of needles or cutting.
This procedure is totally non-invasive — which means little to no downtime to disrupt your schedule. You can be on your way after a 30-minute treatment (though appointment times may vary according to personal requirements).
What can I Expect During My Clear + Brilliant Treatment?
Astra Medi Spa’s experts keep Clear + Brilliant fast, simple and comfortable.
The process starts with a consultation, to determine if Clear + Brilliant is the right option for you and your personal goals. This is a frank, transparent conversation with a licensed professional, offering you an ideal opportunity to ask any further questions or address concerns you might have.
Undergoing any procedure, even one as safe and advanced as Clear + Brilliant, can be daunting. Our experts are committed to providing you with complete peace of mind at every step.
Just before the treatment, a topical numbing cream may be applied to your face. This is nothing to worry about: the cream offers extra comfort during the treatment but is generally not essential.
The therapist performing the Clear + Brilliant treatment guides the device over the skin gently, focusing on the areas specified. This takes between 15 and 20 minutes on average. The Intelligent Optical Tracking™ System ensures the device maintains effective contact with your skin, providing even coverage for maximum impact.
A Clear + Brilliant Perméa® session ends with applying a topical antioxidant serum to the treated skin straight away. The Clear + Brilliant Perméa® treatment is intended to achieve healthier skin tone and texture.
In addition, a biocellulose masque can be applied, too (typically for 10 - 15 minutes). This leaves you feeling refreshed, for a truly revitalizing experience.
How Many Clear + Brilliant Treatments Will I Need?
We understand repeat treatments can be frustrating and affect your busy schedule. Fortunately, Clear + Brilliant has been shown to achieve visible improvements after four to six sessions.
However, you may continue undergoing Clear + Brilliant treatments over time if you wish. This could become part of your regular skincare routine and help you keep your skin looking (and feeling) its best.
Consistent sessions might not be right for everyone, though, so we’ll discuss the most appropriate process for a personalized experience. You could change your mind and feel six sessions leave you with the results you’re looking for. It’s entirely up to you.
How Long Will it Take Before I Notice Changes in My Skin?
Your skin should start to feel softer and its tone should become more even within one- or two-weeks following treatment. No two people have an identical experience, but the results of your Clear + Brilliant session could remain visible for months.
The extent of your results (and the length of time they remain visible) varies based on a number of factors, such as the condition of your skin, your age and your current skincare routine. It’s vital to treat your skin as well as you can at all times, but particularly to make the best of your Clear + Brilliant results.
Clear + Brilliant is available for men and women of diverse ages. It’s designed to combat common signs of aging and help your skin stay looking younger for longer.
As UV radiation, age, pollution, diet, lifestyle and other factors all dictate the skin’s appearance, Clear + Brilliant offers something for everyone.
Does Undergoing Clear + Brilliant Treatment Prevent Me from Having Others?
Just because you choose to undergo one or more Clear + Brilliant sessions doesn’t mean you can’t complement it with additional procedures.
Clear + Brilliant is just one of the facial treatments we offer at Astra Medi Spa. Others include:
These are just a few of our additional facial options, but each delivers its own benefits and visible results.
Whichever facial treatment you choose, Astra Medi Spa’s team works hard to create a calm, relaxing environment in which everyone feels at peace. We’ll talk through your Clear + Brilliant Facial (and any others you wish to cover) in depth to help you make an informed choice.
