Clear and Brilliant FAQ

What is Clear and Brilliant?

Clear and Brilliant is a skin-resurfacing laser treatment that helps stimulate the production of collagen and speed up the skin’s regeneration rate.

Skin regenerates, or replaces the old cells with newer cells, in order to maintain an optimal condition. The body’s natural aging process, exposure to damaging ultraviolet rays, and environmental pollution in urban areas such as New York, decrease the cells’ turnover rate. As a result, the skin’s top dead layer may not be effectively sloughed off, resulting in a duller-looking appearance and uneven skin tone.

Physical and chemical exfoliants can help reveal brighter skin; however, some physical exfoliants do more harm than good by tearing the skin’s surface with their coarse grains, whereas chemical exfoliants require longer periods of time to produce results.

Clear and Brilliant is an alternative solution that targets skin issues. A laser is used and new tissue will be produced in the treated areas, resulting in refreshed skin and an improved appearance.

How will Clear and Brilliant improve my skin?

The outermost layers of our skin act like barriers that protect the inner layers from harm. The top layers become damaged, but because of the skin’s slower turnover rate, they do not get replaced as quickly as needed. Clear and Brilliant helps to boost the skin’s health by speeding up cellular turnover.

After the treatment, your skin will feel smoother and the appearance of pores and uneven texture will be reduced. The production of collagen, which occurs deep within your skin, will help improve your skin’s firmness. Clear and Brilliant will improve your skin’s glow from the inside out. Used in conjunction with good skincare, Clear and Brilliant treatment can be a part of your anti-aging regimen that will help to reverse the visible signs of aging.

Is the procedure safe?

Clear and Brilliant is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes a gentle laser that is moved across the problem areas of your skin. It is a very safe procedure with a slim to zero chance of serious injury or prolonged complications. If you have any questions or concerns, Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, whose office is located in NYC, will be able to address them.

Who can get the procedure done?

Clear and Brilliant is suitable for people of all ages. For youthful skin, it will help to prolong the appearance of an even and unblemished appearance, whereas for more mature skin, it will help to restore a brighter complexion.

Are there any side effects?

Certain side effects after Clear and Brilliant include redness, dryness, and minor discomfort as the skin is undergoing the renewal process; any irritation or sensitivity will subside very quickly. Clear and Brilliant is an effective treatment with little to no down time.

How many treatments will be the best for me?

Each person’s skin differs in its response to certain treatments; therefore, the results will vary for everyone. Please contact Dr. Frank to learn more about Clear and Brilliant as well as other laser resurfacing options he has in his office.
