What Happens When You Get Clear + Brilliant Treatments For Acne Scars?

Clear + Brilliant works wonders for acne scars

“Laser treatments for acne scars” is one of the most-searched phrases online when it comes to skincare. It makes sense considering that over 50 million Americans suffer from acne. Even when people manage to get their acne under control, they’re often left with a reminder in the form of hyperpigmentation and scarring.

Rest assured, thoughdue to advancements in laser technology, acne scars can now be effectively treated. One of the most popular non-invasive treatments for acne scars is Clear + Brilliant, which significantly reduces the appearance of facial scars and discoloration.

Here’s how Clear + Brilliant treatments work

Clear + Brilliant treatments use non-invasive laser technology to gently resurface the top layer of the dermis by creating millions of microscopic treatment zones in the skin. As the body works to heal itself and stimulate new collagen growth, old acne-scarred tissue is replaced by healthy, younger-looking tissue.

This is what a Clear + Brilliant treatment is like

Before a Clear + Brilliant treatment, your medical professional will have you remove any makeup or lotion. They will then apply a numbing cream to your face, which takes about 30 minutes to take effect. Once numb, your medical professional will remove the cream and begin the treatment. The actual treatment only lasts about 15 minutes and most patients only feel minimal discomfort. The laser creates a light prickling sensation with increased heat.

Clear + Brilliant treatments require little-to-no downtime. The treated area might feel sensitive for the day, similar to a minor sunburn. Your skin might also develop a rough texture a few days later, but this resolves itself in a few days leaving you with soft, glowing skin.

Results can be seen after one treatment, but they’ll continue to improve with cumulative treatments. For best results, regular Clear + Brilliant treatments are recommended and can be scheduled approximately two to four weeks apart.

What you can do to maximize Clear + Brilliant treatments

There’s a lot you can do before and after a Clear + Brilliant treatment to maximize your results:

  • Don’t tan in the sun for two weeks before your first session.

  • Avoid any topical prescription products three days before your treatment.

  • Avoid steam rooms, saunas, and exercise for 24 hours, and avoid swimming for at least three days after your treatment.

  • Avoid scrubbing or shaving the area for a minimum of three days.

  • Wear SPF 50 or higher every day to protect your skin from sun damage.

  • Wash your skin with a cleanser designed for sensitive skin.

  • Moisturize your skin twice a day, both in the morning and at night.

Remember that there are limitations to Clear + Brilliant treatments and certain skin conditions may exclude you from becoming a candidate. These treatments aren’t ideal for people with excessively saggy skin, deep wrinkles, and darker age spots. But for younger patients looking to improve the skin tone and texture issues associated with acne scarring, Clear + Brilliant can be an amazing addition to your skin fitness regimen.
