Clear + Brilliant Laser: Best Treatment for a Brighter and More Even Skin Tone
While Fraxel is typically considered the gold standard laser for skin resurfacing, many patients don’t want to deal with the downtime associated with a more aggressive laser. This is why the non-ablative fractional laser Clear + Brilliant is a key tool for improving age spots and skin’s overall tone and texture while not having to take a week off from work or social activities.

Before and After
Why Schweiger Dermatology Group Providers Love the Clear + Brilliant Laser
The Clear + Brilliant Laser is a gentle and effective way to address and prevent early signs of skin aging, such as fine lines, enlarged pores, and irregular skin tone and texture. “Over time, regular sun exposure as well as lifestyle and environmental factors, can prematurely age skin. Using well-established fractional (resurfacing) laser technology, this treatment targets the upper layer of the skin creating thousands of microscopic areas that will replace damaged tissue with fresh, healthy-looking skin,” says Anna Kutys, PA-C. Downtime and recovery is minimal, often with no noticeable side effects the day after treatment. Within two weeks, most patients report smoother skin with a youthful, radiant glow. We recommend three treatments, spaced approximately one month apart to achieve optimal results followed by one maintenance treatment every 6-12 months. This is a perfect treatment to consider before a special event as results are evident and are achieved quickly.
It’s a great introductory and affordable laser for patients who have early sun damage but is probably not aggressive enough to treat more significant sun spots,” says dermatologist Dr. Sue Ann Wee at Schweiger Dermatology Group’s Broadway location in New York City. One you’re ready to step it up a notch, she recommends the Fraxel Thulium laser, which is a higher energy non-ablative fractional laser that can clear most age spots in one to three treatments, while making the skin more healthy and radiant.
What to Expect from Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatments
“Fine lines can be treated effectively with Clear and Brilliant laser resurfacing, performed 3-4 weeks apart at the minimum, and on average 2-6 treatments,” explains Dr. Wee. “The number of treatments ultimately depend on the patient’s goals.” A Clear + Brilliant laser treatment typically takes about 30 minutes. There is no downtime and you can return immediately to work or social engagements. Most patients need a series of about 4-6 Clear + Brilliant laser treatments to see maximum results, but you will notice a difference in your skin even after the first treatment. Your complexion will look refreshed, recharged and overall more even toned and glowing.
