Healthy, glowing skin is the number one request we receive from patients at Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology Corte Madera. Almost everyone wants to have a bright complexion, especially in preparation for a celebration or big event. Even though skin peels and over-the-counter products are a good starting point, they may not get you the dramatic outcome you want. Board-certified aesthetic dermatologist Dr. Tracy Evans offers the Clear + Brilliant® laser for results that can go above and beyond your expectations.
So what does the Clear + Brilliant laser do? The professionals at Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology offer this treatment to individuals who struggle with fine lines and wrinkles as well as other common skin issues. When you are ready to address visible signs of aging and achieve beautiful skin, our facility can help. Schedule your next consultation to harness the power of Clear + Brilliant with us in Corte Madera or San Francisco, CA.
How Clear + Brilliant works
Clear + Brilliant uses a gentle non-ablative laser to deliver heat into the upper layers of the skin. This creates micro-injuries that stimulate healing and natural collagen production. Collagen is the protein responsible for keeping skin supple and firm. During this skin care laser treatment, the damaged cells will also fall away to make room for brand-new, undamaged skin. Problems, such as wrinkles and lines, become less noticeable as a result.
Even though a Clear + Brilliant procedure is considered safe and noninvasive, it should only be performed by a licensed professional specifically trained to treat with this device. This is because some patients have delicate areas that require a precise depth of penetration. When you visit Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology we will be able to give you information about Clear + Brilliant for wrinkles and what to expect after the Clear + Brilliant laser treatment.
Who can get Clear + Brilliant?
The best thing about Clear + Brilliant laser treatment is its versatility. It is known to work well on men and women of all ages and skin tones. People also love that this treatment can easily fit into their busy schedules. Ideal candidates for Clear + Brilliant have begun to show signs of aging or want to prevent skin issues before they occur. Because there is a possibility of side effects, it is important to let us know about any health conditions that may affect the outcome of your treatment. Women who are pregnant are not candidates and if nursing may not be good candidates for Clear + Brilliant at this time.
Getting your Clear + Brilliant treatment
Dr. Evans helps patients prepare for Clear + Brilliant at least two weeks before their appointment. We ask that you avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and retinol products, and that you wear protective sunscreen anytime you go outdoors. Sun damage can cause sensitivity from the laser, which can lead to poor results. If you have questions about getting ready for Clear + Brilliant, Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology can offer guidelines and instructions.
When you arrive for your skin care laser treatment, we apply a numbing cream to keep you as comfortable as possible. One of our skilled licensed providers will use the handpiece to create micro-injuries in the skin. Following the Clear + Brilliant procedure, our staff will use an antioxidant serum to improve your results. If you prefer, we can also apply a cooling mask before you leave our office.
What to expect after the Clear + Brilliant laser
Based on the intensity of the treatment, Dr. Evans can let you know what to expect after Clear + Brilliant. You may experience some redness of the treatment area, which should subside after a few hours. The skin may become itchy, sensitive, or have a rough texture following the procedure, but this is a normal part of the process. Sleeping in an elevated position can help with swelling or other side effects.
Some patients achieve desired results with sessions 4-5 times a year, while others find optimal results come from having treatments once a month. Results vary among patients, but most people should not schedule appointments closer than two weeks apart. When you meet with Dr. Evans, Krystal or Danielle about Clear + Brilliant for wrinkles, we can make recommendations based on your skin type and complexion. Once you are healed from Clear + Brilliant laser treatment, the skin should appear fresher and more youthful, with a beautiful glow.
