During the consultation your clinician will recommend and discuss which products you may need to use prior to your procedure. This is to ensure that the skin is well prepped to reduce risks of adverse reactions and to ensure optimal results from your treatment. Products will generally need to be used in the 2 weeks leading up to the procedure. This time frame may vary from patient to patient.
Upon arrival you will be asked to fill out a consultation form which will include questions about your skin type, medical conditions, previous treatments, etc. You will then have a private discussion with an experienced clinician who will assess your individual requirements, suggest a tailored plan and take you through the details of the procedure including pre-care and aftercare. This will also give you the opportunity to have any questions or queries regarding your treatment answered. Most patients are able to tolerate the treatment without much discomfort. The patient can sometimes experience a prickling sensation during the procedure and a slight warming of the skin post treatment.
At Clinica Lase we only use medical grade, TGA approved laser technology. We pride ourselves on both our knowledge and experience but also on our thorough consultations that ensure we have all the necessary information to minimise the risk of complications. At Clinica Lase, you can be sure that your safety is our first priority
The most common side effects experienced post Clear + Brilliant are:
Redness - usually resolves within 4-6 hours
Swelling - usually occurs the morning after the procedure and subsides once aftercare is applied
Dry skin - the skin may feel dry and you may notice a 'sandpaper' like texture for a few days post procedure.
These are POSITIVE side effects as it demonstrates regeneration of the skin cells to improve the skin. Not all patients will experience the above side effects.
Avoid direct sun exposure for 14 days post procedure. This also includes the use of solariums. Physical sun protection is mandatory and must be an SPF of 30.
Waxing and hair removal procedures such as laser and IPL should be avoided for 5 - 7 days post procedure.
Facial treatments such as microdermabrasion, peels, facial laser treatment and facials are not advised for a minimum of 14 days post procedure.
No strenuous activity is to be undertaken for 48 hours post procedure. This includes Bikram Yoga, the use of steam rooms and saunas, hot showers, chlorinated water and salt water pools.
Exfoliating products are not to be used for 5 - 7 days or as advised by your clinician.
Correct product use post procedure is very important to avoid further compromising the skin. This will be discussed with your clinician during your consultation and the correct formulas will be recommended.
Clear and Brilliant is a non-ablative fractionated laser treatment utilising the 1440nm and 1927nm wavelength to target fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, enlarged pores, acne scarring, pigment and redness. It is attracted to water in the skin and each pulse coagulates tissue in certain depths, creating a thermal micro-injury zone without disrupting the skin barrier. This would then send the skin into a natural wound healing response, triggering dermal remodelling and new collagen production. It is a minimal downtime treatment that is safe for all skin types.
Whilst both Fraxel and Clear & Brilliant use a fractionated laser technology, it is generally used for different severity of skin concerns. Fraxel is indicated for moderate to severe concerns as it is able to reach deeper layers of the skin, providing a heavier resurfacing treatment with more significant downtime; whereas Clear & Brilliant is often referred to as baby Fraxel as it is a more superficial treatment to achieve a glowy complexion with minimal downtime.
Clear & Brilliant is a rejuvenating treatment that encourages collagen and elastin production. This would help to reduce and prevent signs of ageing to achieve a healthier and younger complexion.
Results can be seen in as little as 2 weeks after your Clear & Brilliant treatment. You will notice that your pores are refined, your skin will look more plump and glowy. Best results come in at around 4 to 6 weeks after treatment and can continue to improve for up to 6 months as the collagen and elastin production keeps developing.
Clear & Brilliant is suited for all skin types and it works well for a range of different skin concerns. Additionally, it can be used on any part of the body, including the face, neck, décolletage or chest.
Some of the key skin concerns that can be resolved by this unique treatment include:
Rough or dull skin
RednessScarring Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation/erythema (PIH/PIE)Oily skinSkin irregularitiesBlemishesSun damageDark spotsStretch marks
Clear & Brilliant is not a treatment indicated to remove facial hair. Clinica Lase offers an epiblading service and a laser hair removal treatment using the Candela Gentle-LASE laser machine.
Clear & Brilliant is an amazing collagen stimulating treatment with minimal downtime. Clear & Brilliant works by creating thermal microscopic treatment zones and relying on the body’s natural wound healing response to trigger new collagen and elastin production.
Our clients say so! In as little as two weeks, your skin will start to look brighter, feel more plump and glowy. As it is a low downtime treatment, you don’t have to take time off work to get this treatment.
Clear & Brilliant and IPL are generally used for different concerns, although there is a slight overlap. IPL is often better at reducing pigment and redness including removing telangiectases or dilated capillaries. However, IPL is not suitable for melasma clients. Clear & Brilliant focuses more on improving textural concerns, strengthening the skin and improving melasma.
To know which treatment would be best for your skin concerns, talk to one of our dermal clinicians at your personal consultation.
Both Clear & Brilliant and microneedling are good, but they are used differently.
Clear & Brilliant causes greater injury as it uses heat to coagulate tissues on the skin, therefore producing more dramatic textural improvements such as smoothening of fine lines, refining enlarged pores or acne scarring.
Microneedling relies on mechanical injury from the needles without any heat involved, so it can be a safer treatment option for darker skin types or skin conditions that can be heat-sensitive. It is also a non-laser procedure which makes it safe to be used for the under eye area.
Both treatments can be adjusted to be as light or as intensive as your skin needs, reflecting the length of downtime that you will experience. The depth of the treatments are also adjustable to target different skin conditions.
Upon arrival you will be asked to fill out a consultation form which will include questions about your skin type, medical conditions, previous treatments, etc. You will then have a private discussion with an experienced clinician who will assess your individual requirements, suggest a tailored plan and take you through the details of the treatment including pre-care and aftercare. This will also give you the opportunity to have any questions or queries regarding your treatment answered.
Treatment includes a thorough skin cleansing, a chemical peel that is tailored to what your skin needs and an LED or soothing mask to support your skin’s recovery process. The treatment session is booked for 1 hour and 15 mins, however the laser component takes about 15 minutes for the face. If you decide to add treatment to larger areas such as the neck and décolletage, you will be looking at 30 minutes laser time.
It is normal for the skin that has been treated to be pink and swollen afterwards, similar to a sunburn feeling. Generally, the redness lasts for about 3 days or longer in some cases. The skin can feel tight and dry for a couple of days after Clear & Brilliant, this lasts for about 5-7 days.
You will be given a take home soothing mask to be applied while your skin is recovering which will help to soothe and hydrate your skin. The days following your treatment, gentle products are to be used to keep the area hydrated, your clinician will go through your skincare routine with you and guide you in suitable products.
Please apply sunscreen minimum SPF 30 everyday and avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks after your treatment. You should avoid hot baths, steam and intense physical exercise for at least 48 hours.
If patients wish to wear makeup after the procedure, it is recommended to avoid it for the first 24 hours and after that mineral makeup is recommended. This will avoid any irritation to the skin. In addition, using new sponges and brushes or ones that have been cleaned thoroughly, will help to minimise the risk of infection.
If you suffer from recurrent cold sores (herpes simplex virus), it is recommended to take anti-viral medication to prevent cold sores occurring after treatment.
