The most common side effects that we find after having Clear + Brilliant treatment tend to be some redness on the skin, as well as minor swelling. However, the redness will resolve on its own after around four to six hours. Aftercare will also help with the swelling. In addition, the skin can feel dry for a few days.
But it is important to realise that these are positive effects of Clear + Brilliant. They are signs that the skin is regenerating and is going to improve the skin’s appearance. Some patients may not experience side effects, which is nothing to worry about.
Right after treatment, there should be no strenuous activity for 48 hours. Anything from steam rooms and hot showers to Bikram Yoga are to be avoided. This also includes chlorinated or salt water pools.
In Ballarat, it important to avoid sun experience for around 14 days after Clear + Brilliant. A minimum of SPF 30 should be used to protect the skin when outdoors. In addition, any facial treatments should be avoided for a minimum of 14 days after the procedure. This can include microdermabrasion and facial laser treatment. Waxing and IPL treatment should be stopped for five to seven days.
Patients in Ballarat will be advised on the correct skincare procedures after Clear + Brilliant, which will be important for the best results.
