Can you combine Clear + Brilliant and injectables?
Have you spent too many summers outside in the sun, resulting in uneven skin texture, hyperpigmentation, and tone that doesn’t bounce back like it used to? If you need a total skin refresh, two cosmetic treatments are your new best friends: laser facials, like Clear + Brilliant, and injectables, like Botox, Xeomin, Juvéderm, and Revanesse.
First things first: What’s Clear + Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant is a gentle fractional laser treatment designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines, pores, and uneven skin tone, giving your skin an unmistakable glow. It works by refreshing the skin from the inside out — the laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in the skin’s outer layer, promoting cellular turnover and collagen production. Clear + Brilliant is the perfect treatment for those with sun damage and early signs of aging and is safe and effective on all skin tones.
What about injectables?
Let’s go through a bit of a crash course — there are two main types of injectables: Dermal fillers, like Juvéderm and Revanesse, and neuromodulators, like Botox and Xeomin. In a nutshell, dermal fillers support and fill in the face, hydrating and restoring volume for a smooth appearance. In contrast, neuromodulators relax the muscles that control our expressions and lead to dynamic wrinkles. The good news is that dermal fillers and neuromodulators can be combined to enhance your aesthetic results.
What are the benefits of combining Clear + Brilliant and injectables?
When used together, Clear + Brilliant and dermal fillers, like Botox and Juvéderm, smooth, lift, and refine the skin, restoring balance and imparting a youthful glow. Remember that neuromodulators and dermal fillers treat different types of lines, wrinkles, and folds, so depending on which one you use in conjunction with Clear + Brilliant, you’ll get different aesthetic results. You can combine different types of injectables to treat multiple areas of the face simultaneously while getting Clear + Brilliant treatments — this will give you a total refresh of your face!
What kind of results can I expect?
While injectables offer more immediate results, Clear + Brilliant’s results are more progressive. Neuromodulators, like Botox and Xeomin, produce results within three to seven days, settling into peak effectiveness in about two weeks, with results lasting for months. Filler offers instant results that keep improving until the product fully settles, around the two-week mark. And those results last up to a full year, depending on the specific product used.
With Clear + Brilliant, you’ll start to see results with a single treatment, but they’ll keep improving with additional treatments. A week or two after treatment, your skin will feel softer, look brighter, and show a more even skin tone.
Can you get both treatments at the same time?
Planning on getting both Clear + Brilliant and injectables to enhance your SkinFitness™ results? The general rule of thumb is to wait a week between treatments for maximum safety and effectiveness:
- For Clear + Brilliant and neuromodulators, you should wait a week in between, regardless of which is treated first.
- For Clear + Brilliant and dermal fillers targeting the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines, you should wait a week regardless of which treatment occurs first.
- For Clear + Brilliant and lip filler, you can get both on the same day, but Clear + Brilliant should be the first treatment that you get, followed by lip filler. But if you get lip filler first, you should wait a week before getting Clear + Brilliant.
Bottom line: combining Clear + Brilliant and injectables, including dermal fillers and neuromodulators, will take your skincare A-game to the next level.
