Clear+Brilliant Laser Brownsville
Caring for your skin properly can be hard. While creams, facials, and exfoliating treatments can help keep your skin looking clean and beautiful, they can only do so much to treat more significant damage. Eventually, you’re going to need a powerful treatment that can address serious skin issues caused by unavoidable factors like sun exposure and aging.
One of the most powerful and effective options for skin care is the Clear+Brilliant fractional laser. Fractional laser treatments make rejuvenating your skin easy and pain-free so you can avoid a lengthy and uncomfortable recovery period.
Fractional laser treatments are capable of addressing a wide variety of skin issues, including:
- Fine lines
- Acne scarring
- Sun spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Poor skin texture
- Vertical lip lines
How Do Clear+Brilliant Fractional Laser Skin Treatments Work?
The Clear+Brilliant fractional laser is designed to emit a series of microscopic laser beams that target and treat tiny areas of the skin. Non-fractional lasers create a larger beam that treats a large area of the skin. While the overall process of using smaller beams may require more time, it offers a number of benefits.
Non-fractional laser treatments can produce a significant amount of discomfort, because they remove the whole surface layer of the skin in the targeted area. This means that it will take longer for the treatment area to fully recover. These treatments can also increase your risk of developing an infection.
Fractional lasers, on the other hand, target multiple smaller areas of the skin. The tiny beams of energy penetrate the layers of tissue and create a column-shaped treatment zone. This leaves healthy undamaged areas that work to heal the targeted regions.
The laser targets the damaged and old cells in the tissues without causing harm to the healthy tissues in the area. It also stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, which gives it strength and tightens it. This helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The Treatment Process
The first step of the Clear+Brilliant treatment process is the consultation. This is the time when the specific skin issues you have are identified and a treatment plan is laid out. An evaluation of your skin type and skin condition is also performed.
The next step is preparing your skin for the treatment. Any makeup and jewelry will need to be removed, and the skin will need to be cleaned to get rid of any dirt and debris. In some cases, a chemical peel may be performed to ensure the surface of the skin is smooth and clear.
An anesthetic cream may be applied to the face to numb the area and reduce any discomfort that may occur during the treatment. A special gel is applied to the area so that the laser device can smoothly glide across the surface of the skin.
After these steps, the fractional laser treatment can be performed. It will take around 30 minutes to perform. The device will be slowly passed over the treatment area to ensure that full and even coverage is provided.
After the treatment, patients may feel a mild sunburn-like sensation. This should only last for around one hour. Swelling is to be expected but will dissipate after two or three days. The skin may have a pink hue for around three to four days.
