eczema, hyperpigmentation, scarring
and recurring blemishes. Or patients who

skin before a big event. Clear and brilliant

considered the most gentle option of all
By drilling microscopic holes in the
surface of the skin, down to the level where
the dermis is still growing the process
enables a kick-start and sends the collagen
production into healing overdrive. Clear and
Brilliant activates the body's own immune
system by creating a controlled trauma
deep into the skin. e body responds to
this, by filling each of these columns with
collagen and elastin to heal the local area.
is in turn promotes collagen growth,
tightens pores, breaks up pigmentation and
thus gives the skin a radiant glow.
Clear and Brilliant Laser is billed
as being a once off treatment or for
accentuated conditions a series of four
treatments are recommended. When it
comes to Laser treatments, many patients
aren't ready for the big guns, but feel
their skin has started to appear dull and
dry. is can be due to skin becoming
parched at the change of seasons, a
stressful and busy lifestyle, frequent air
travel or just a noncommittal relationship
with regular skincare. Large pores, a dull
skin tone and uneven pigmentation can
all be addressed with a simple treatment
that still allows the patient to be back
into makeup the next day. e treatment

a week afterward.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
A topical numbing cream is applied for 60
mins prior to the treatment to ensure the
skin surface is numb. To ensure optimum
patient comfort during treatment, a Zimmer
cooler is employed to blow freezing cold air
onto the face throughout the treatment.

glides across the treatment area which can
include the face, neck, décolletage and
hands, which are the most popular areas.
A warm prickling sensation is present

heat dissipates, but the redness, and a very
mild swelling, remains overnight.
It's best to avoid scheduling any events for
the night of your treatment as you'll want to
delay putting on any makeup, thus allowing
your skin to soak up the antioxidant-rich
solutions applied post-procedure.
e next day, your skin should look
completely normal and you can return to
your regular makeup routine. You may
notice a sandpaper-like texture to your
skin, which is a result of micro-injuries
made by the laser.

in the following days, especially with
moisturising, to continually nourish and
hydrate the new skin that is forming.

enzyme made from Papaya. It works like
a little Pacman on the surface of the skin
to slough off those micro-scabs and reveal
the healthy skin underneath.

that contain acids or retinol for three days
after treatment to avoid irritating your skin.
