Combination treatments: Clear + Brilliant and IPL Photofacials
Did you know that you can combine Clear + Brilliant and IPL photofacials to maximize your SkinFitness™ results? They are two minimally invasive aesthetic dermatological treatments that complement each other. Read on to learn more about each treatment and the results you can obtain when you combine them.
What do Clear + Brilliant and IPL photofacials do?
The IPL Photofacial, also known as Intense Pulsed Light, is a specialized treatment that aims to reverse the signs of sun damage, such as age spots and other types of hyperpigmentation, and stimulates collagen. Clear + Brilliant is a minimally invasive laser skin treatment that rejuvenates the skin from the inside out, reversing the appearance of sun damage and acne scars, shrinking the appearance of pores, and improving tone and texture for a more refreshed look.
Why combine them?
If you’re wondering why you would combine two treatments that provide similar results, consider their “mechanisms of action” or how these two treatments go about delivering results to the skin with their unique methods. IPL photofacials work by way of selectively targeting dark pigment and redness in the skin with a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by browns and reds. The heat from the light causes purposeful damage to those cells, which are naturally removed by the body, revealing more even skin tone and color.
Clear + Brilliant also helps the body remove damaged skin cells, but by way of laser light that is attracted to the water deep in your skin. The laser creates hundreds of thousands of microscopic holes, damaging a small percentage of the skin's surface. The immune system is stimulated and repairs the skin by replacing dull, discolored skin cells with healthy new ones. These methods, such as the Permea handpiece used during Clear + Brilliant treatments, work in vastly different ways, targeting concerns such as dark spots and sun damage in different ways that combine for superior results.
What can I expect?
You will see results from IPL photofacials and Clear + Brilliant after the first treatment, and depending on your skincare goals, you may need a series of treatments. Most dermatologists recommend alternating between these two treatments once a month for the safest and quickest way to achieve and maintain your healthiest skin possible. You will only feel minimal discomfort with both treatments and get lasting results with every session.
So if you’re looking to maximize results with regular sessions, combining IPL photofacials and Clear + Brilliant will deliver. Want to know if you’re a candidate for both?
