Think of Clear + Brilliant® as the more easygoing little sister of traditional laser skin resurfacing treatments. It removes skin imperfections with little to no downtime, and is often called the “baby Fraxel.” Clear + Brilliant is a patient favorite for correcting hyper-pigmentation and melasma. It also gives you smoother skin and visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and pores.
While you’ll see immediate glowing effects after your first treatment, for optimal results we recommend 4-6 treatments over 6 months.
After your Clear + Brilliant treatment, your skin is delicate and going through a dynamic cell regeneration process. It is important to nourish the healthy new cells and protect your skin from sun, chemicals and bacteria. We recommend a special skincare routine for the first 10 days after your Clear + Brilliant, using nothing on your skin except products in the Product Recommendations section below. These products have been specially designed to support the natural healing process your skin is going through.

What does Clear + Brilliant laser do?
Clear + Brilliant reduces hyperpigmentation and improves skin tone and texture. It helps prevent the signs of aging, soften fine lines, and minimize the appearance of pores. A single Clear + Brilliant session can leave your skin feeling softer and smoother and give you that “radiant glow” that comes from healthy, youthful skin. A series of treatments delivers the most dramatic results.
How does Clear + Brilliant work?
Clear + Brilliant is a laser resurfacing facial treatment that uses pulsating beams of light to exfoliate away layers of skin to reveal a smoother, clearer complexion. It uses the same technology as Fraxel®—just not as intense. Unlike Fraxel, it has little to no downtime. Clear + Brilliant works by creating millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin. New, healthy tissue then replaces the damaged skin. This yields younger-looking skin.
What can you expect during a typical Clear + Brilliant Treatment?
Your Spa Radiance nurse will gently guide the Clear + Brilliant handpiece across the target area and actively treat your skin for approximately 30 minutes.
Prior to your treatment, we apply topical numbing to the treatment area. During your treatment, you may experience some slight discomfort with a warming sensation. A special cooling system blows cool air on the treatment site, which lowers the temperature of your skin and greatly reduces discomfort. The treatment is generally well tolerated.
A topical antioxidant serum might be applied to the skin immediately after treatment. A refreshing bio-cellulose mask may also be applied for 10–15 minutes after treatment.
When will I see results?
The results of Clear + Brilliant treatment are both immediate and progressive. Within a week or two after your first treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter and show more of an even tone.
“I’ve probably interviewed 100-plus dermatologists, and besides good daily skin maintenance (including, yes, sunscreen), they all believe in the power of a reset—a pore-clearing acid peel, a series of brightening IPL treatments, or skin-tightening laser resurfacing sessions. My latest thing is Clear + Brilliant. I’ve done a few sessions recently under the recommendation of Ellen Marmur, M.D., and suddenly I no longer need to wear foundation. My pores look smaller, my brown spots are more like beige spots, and my skin is just glowier overall. I’m recommending it to everyone I know.” —Ying Chu, executive beauty director
