What are the Biggest Benefits of Laser Facial Treatments?
The best facial treatments help you care for your skin, feel rejuvenated, and combat common signs of aging.
And we could ALL use a little pampering now and then, couldn’t we? A little bit of me-time goes a looong way when you need to get away from it all for a while.
But with so many facial treatments to choose from, it’s not easy to know which will work best for your skin.
There are injectables. There are peels. There are IV therapies.
And one of the most effective, cutting-edge techniques available right now is laser resurfacing.
This utilizes the latest in laser technology to cultivate healthier, clearer, brighter skin. In this post, we’ll explore how this treatment could help YOU — and where to find it.
What is fractional laser resurfacing?
Fractional laser resurfacing is a type of treatment designed to improve the appearance of:
The aim is to leave skin looking more youthful, with a smoother texture and better appearance overall.
This is vastly different to more invasive treatments created to combat the signs of aging, such as conventional facelifts, which can lead to long periods of downtime.
Clear + Brilliant has become a highly popular fractional laser resurfacing treatment in the past few years, assisted in no small part by praise from a number of A-list stars.
Drew Barrymore (star of Charlie’s Angels, Donnie Darko, and, of course, E.T.) revealed how Clear + Brilliant had helped her achieve a glowing complexion in 2018.
She has been public about her struggle with melasma, a condition causing patches of brown discoloration on the skin, caused by hormonal fluctuations, skin irritation, too much exposure to UV radiation, or genetics.
But the actor was only too happy to share the results of her Clear + Brilliant treatment with her Instagram followers. She described this non-invasive solution as being “as light as it gets”, and proudly included a makeup-free, filter-free image of herself.
Jennifer Aniston is one of the world’s biggest actors, thanks to her decade-long turn as Rachel Green in Friends, her sultry performance in the Horrible Bosses films, and a string of other roles in successful movies.
Aniston is also known for her stunning looks, having once been crowned the World’s Most Beautiful Woman by Peoplemagazine. She has also praised Clear + Brilliant, describing it as a “great refresher” with “very little downtime”.
Debra Messing became a household name for her leading role in the series Will & Grace in the early 2000s, and she still has a huge fan base..
In 2019, she posted a makeup-free selfie on Instagram and shared her positive experience with Clear + Brilliant.
How does Clear + Brilliant fractional laser resurfacing work?
The Clear + Brilliant fractional laser handpiece creates hundreds of thousands of microscopic treatment zones in the skin’s upper layers — and while it might sound like a hugely complex process, the average Clear + Brilliant session lasts just 15 to 30 minutes.
Your treatment will start with an in-depth consultation with a trained professional. They will discuss your skin and your goals, before assessing whether Clear + Brilliant is the right option for you.
Next, they will apply a topical cream to your face to numb specific areas before the treatment begins. This will help you stay comfortable throughout the session. You should only feel a slight prickling sensation on the skin as the laser makes contact.
Once the process begins, you’ll lie back and close your eyes while the handpiece is guided over your face. The fractional laser will stimulate the production of new skin tissue, to replace aged and/or damaged skin in certain areas. Your skin will be refreshed from the inside out!
This is a much faster, simpler way to achieve a younger look than invasive procedures, and with significantly less downtime. Your skin might feel warm and appear a little red following your treatment, but only temporarily.
Another key aspect of Clear + Brilliant’s revolutionary design is the patented Intelligent Optical Tracking®. This ensures proper contact with the targeted areas of skin, so the application is always even and balanced.
How long does it take to start seeing the benefits of Clear + Brilliant fractional laser treatment?
You will start to notice real improvements within one or two weeks of your first treatment.
Your skin will begin to:
The results of your Clear + Brilliant treatments may last for a number of months, depending on a number of factors.
How many Clear + Brilliant treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required to achieve optimal results with Clear + Brilliant varies, based on your skin and your goals. You should start to notice visible improvements in target areas after between four and six treatments, though it may require a little more. The best way to be sure is to book a consultation and speak with your skincare provider.
They will tailor a course of sessions to suit you. You may even choose to keep undergoing Clear + Brilliant treatments regularly, to maintain the results over time. Again, it’s crucial to discuss this with an expert.
