What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that uses laser technology to improve skin texture, tone, and appearance by removing damaged outer layers and stimulating collagen production.

The Clear & Bright system is a powerful system used specifically to target skin imperfections, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven pigmentation. It combines precise laser energy with advanced cooling techniques to ensure comfort and effectiveness, resulting in smoother, clearer, and more youthful-looking skin.

Why Do We Need Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Aging is universal, however, it is different for everyone. Despite whatever lifestyle we live or preventive measures we take, eventually, the natural aging process will come for us all. By the age of 20, our bodies have already begun to lose an annual 1% of the collagen production we used to have, according to Scientific American. Collagen is the most essential protein for maintaining a taut and youthful appearance.

When you couple this with external factors like sun damage or free radicals, the amount of damage your skin faces becomes monumental. It’s no wonder why our facial integrity begins to degrade, making way for side effects like fine lines, wrinkles and even deeper skin folds.The unfortunate reality of the situation is that there is very little that can be done to prevent these effects from occurring, but Clear + Brilliant provides an excellent solution to the problem once it has developed — a shining light for people who feel burdened by their aging or dull appearance.


What Does Clear + Brilliant Treat?

Clear + Brilliant was explicitly developed to treat aging and dull skin. With laser skin resurfacing in San Francisco, at Appearance Care Center, fine lines and wrinkles (crow’s feet, lip lines, marionette lines, etc.) can be smoothed out, and a bright and vibrant facial appearance can also be achieved. It can also help improve some textural or tonal concerns like melasma or rosacea and bring about skin that is softer to the touch.

Am I a Candidate for Clear + Brilliant?

Clear + Brilliant is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure, which means very few limitations are placed on who can be considered for this treatment. Some rare conditions may prevent you from being a great fit, but in those rare cases, our team at Appearance Care Center will work with you to develop an alternative treatment plan.

One of the most significant advantages that Clear + Brilliant has over other lasers on the market is that it can be used on darker skin tones without any problems. Since dark skin tones tend to absorb heat more efficiently, other laser treatments are more prone to producing burns and topical skin damage on more melanated skin.

How Should I Prepare for Clear + Brilliant?

You will need to make very few preparations before your Clear + Brilliant treatment. It is noninvasive, so there are no surgical considerations to make and no time to take off from work, school or other obligations. You can get right back to your routines immediately after the procedure (as long as you don’t mind showing off a bit of redness in some cases).

We always recommend not smoking and avoiding excessive sun exposure before the treatment. These factors can damage your results, and sunburns can cause the treatment to be more uncomfortable than necessary. While it is a generally painless and comfortable process to begin with, there is no reason to cause unnecessary discomfort.

What Should I Expect from a Clear + Brilliant Procedure?

Like fractionated laser technology, Clear + Brilliant creates millions of microscopic treatment zones within the skin. The treatment causes the layers of the skin to convert laser energy into heat. The body registers this as “damage” and sends a full battery of healing proteins and compounds to those areas. Collagen, elastin and a host of other healing factors flush into the targeted areas, smoothing and filling the underlying tissue and bolstering the skin’s elasticity.

Your skin will be thoroughly cleaned before and after the treatment, and in some cases, a topical numbing agent can be applied to patients with sensitive skin or very low pain thresholds. For the most part, patients describe the treatment as a moderate warming sensation. The entire process lasts between 20 and 30 minutes — more than enough time to have performed during a lunch break.

What Should I Expect During Clear + Brilliant Recovery?

The recovery process is very straightforward. You may experience some mild discomfort during the procedure or directly after its completion. Still, typical patients only experience redness or tenderness for up to a few days after the process, though most people last only 24 hours.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Clear + Brilliant?

You can expect to experience an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, aging, tonal concerns, or textural inconsistencies based entirely on your aesthetic goals during the procedure. We recommend that patients have roughly six treatments spaced two to four weeks apart to achieve ideal results, but this can change depending on your unique reaction to the treatment and the improvements you are hoping to make.
