If you struggle with acne or oily skin, you know how difficult and expensive it can be to find home treatments and over-the-counter products that really work. While regular facials, specialized acne facials, and chemical peels can help reduce acne and keep oily skin conditions under control, some patients require more. Luckily, there is another way to deal with acne that is effective, gentle, and non-invasive. Clear and Brilliant for acne and oily skin is a laser treatment that is FDA approved for treating blemishes as well as a host of other skin concerns, and it’s available here at the Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center in Beverly Hills.
One of the biggest reasons our patients love Clear and Brilliant is that it's one of the gentler laser options available. This means the recovery time is a fraction of what it would be for typical laser resurfacing treatments, and side-effects are minimal.
Not only is Clear and Brilliant one of the mildest forms of laser resurfacing, but it offers a myriad of benefits aside from eliminating surface blemishes. These benefits include reduced pore size, enhanced skin radiance, reduced hyperpigmentation and increased collagen production for rejuvenation and anti-aging.
Typically, the procedure starts with a topical numbing cream. Once the cream has been given time to work, a handheld laser device will be gently and evenly passed over the skin to ensure uniform contact. After the treatment is completed, a soothing, hydrating mask by SkinCeuticals is applied; this helps with moisture and reduces facial redness from the treatment. Afterward, we put patients under an LED light to reduce redness and inflammation. Post-treatment, you will be able to leave and go about your normal day; however, you can expect some redness and slight swelling. The entire procedure usually takes about 30 minutes.
Celebrities can't get enough of Clear and Brilliant for acne, oily skin, and to improve overall texture, tone, reduce pores, wrinkles, and fine lines. Everyone knows that celebrities spend their lives scrutinized by paparazzi and video cameras, so they have to maintain a flawless appearance at all times. While it used to be taboo for celebrities to tell their beauty secrets, many have started to open up about what they do to stay looking youthful and radiant.
Drew Barrymore swears by Clear and Brilliant for maintaining healthy, clear and glowing skin, and Christie Brinkley raves about the procedure as well. Barrymore has said that Clear and Brilliant is her go-to treatment for evening her skin tone and eliminating melasma, and Brinkley says she loves how young and fresh the treatments make her face.
