The Plastic Surgery Institute offers our Beverly Hills and Los Angeles patients Clear + Brilliant, a gentle treatment that uses fractional laser technology to address and prevent the early signs of aging skin.
Smooth, blemish-free skin is the epitome of youth, which can sometimes feel fleeting. However, when Drew Barrymore herself says Clear + Brilliant is “as light as it gets and non-invasive”, you know you can trust it to work. The proven benefits, like improved skin elasticity, wrinkle reduction, and dark spot removal, not to mention that the entire process can take under an hour, show just how impressive this treatment really is. This is why The Plastic Surgery Institute offers Clear + Brilliant in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles – it’s the clear choice for outstanding skin resurfacing results.
With a variety of laser skin resurfacing treatments to choose from, Clear + Brilliant is the innovative fractional laser technology that treats fine lines, blemishes, hyperpigmentation, and overall tone and texture. Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser resurfacing treatment that was FDA-approved in 2011, and its application is meant to rejuvenate skin by addressing early signs of facial aging, sun damage, tone, texture and can even minimize pore size.
It is often used as a preventative measure to delay early signs of aging. As a milder method of laser resurfacing, Clear + Brilliant offers many benefits with little to no downtime. Clear + Brilliant utilizes a fractional laser that is designed to create millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of skin, which in turn stimulates collagen production and removes dead cells, resulting in refreshed and healthier-looking skin.

Safe, gentle, preventative method

Clear + Brilliant is the perfect treatment for those who want something more than a chemical peel, but something less intense than a fraxel treatment. This procedure is ideal for a broad range of candidates who are looking to rejuvenate their skin.
It is designed for all skin types and tones, including those who may have not been candidates for other cosmetic laser treatments previously. An accurate diagnosis of what areas are to be targeted will depend on which level of treatment is to be provided, as well as how many sessions. Reach out to us at The Plastic Surgery Institute to schedule a consultation today!
Once you arrive for your treatment, you will remove any makeup or lotion. The Plastic Surgery Institute’s physician will apply a numbing cream to your face, which will take about 30 minutes to take effect.
At this point, the cream will be removed, and the treatment will begin, taking about 15 minutes to complete. Due to the numbing cream, there is no pain – most patients report only feeling minimal discomfort that is best described as a light prickling sensation with increased heat.
The Doctors at the Plastic Surgery Institute love what they do. If you want the highest quality of care from industry leaders who are as approachable as they are professional, you will find a perfect partner for your procedure at the Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills.

A Clear + Brilliant laser treatment will begin by applying a topical numbing cream to ensure patient comfort throughout the procedure, which will last about 30 minutes.
Once the skin is thoroughly numbed, the physician will guide the Clear + Brilliant handpiece across the areas to be treated. The Clear + Brilliant handpiece will deliver the laser energy to the skin, targeting trouble areas to encourage cell turnover and an increase in natural collagen. After treatment, a cooling serum is applied to the area to soothe the skin.
As Clear + Brilliant is a gentle fraxel laser, there is no downtime after treatment – you could walk in during your lunch break, and return to your day with nobody knowing you were just in a doctor’s office!
Clear + Brilliant results are immediate and continuous. A series of 4-6 treatments scheduled at 3-week intervals are usually recommended for the best results. However, patients will notice smoother, even skin tone after just one treatment. With consistent treatments, following a skincare regimen, and protecting your skin from the sun, results can for up to 1-2 years (individual results may vary).
Aftercare for the procedure is simple and uncomplicated, consisting of a gentle cleanser and applying moisturizer twice daily. As with any laser treatment, protection from the sun is important (as it is every day), so sunscreen and a hat may be ideal if often in the presence of direct sunlight.
Clear + Brilliant requires little recovery time, though there may be some redness the first day or so. You may also feel some roughness to your skin for 4-5 days, but this will dissipate quickly. Recovery time is minimal with some patients experiencing slight redness for 12-24 hours following treatment. Feel free to ask our team at The Plastic Surgery Institute any questions you may have! We are happy to put your mind at ease and satisfy your curiosity.
Clear + Brilliant works by creating hundreds of thousands of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, which replaces damaged skin with healthy-looking tissue and yields younger-looking skin.
