How It Works


Clear + Brilliant is one of the most popular laser treatments in the world of aesthetic procedures. It is actually a fractional laser that works by creating multiple microscopic treatment zones in the upper layer of the skin. This results in triggering collagen and elastin production and also removing dead cells. During the treatment, around 25% of the skin is resurfaced. That’s the reason why the result of Clear + Brilliant treatment is a refreshed, smoother and younger-looking skin. Clear + Brilliant treatment involves treating the skin on superficial levels, improving hyperpigmentation and increasing permeability for topical skincare. After the treatment, the skin more easily absorbs all the important ingredients necessary for keeping it fresh and bright.

Clear + Brilliant treatment is a perfect solution for patients who wish to refresh their look, prevent aging signs and maintaining their skin younger and radiant.


 During the treatment, the pulsating beam of focused light is targeted into the skin. This energy creates microscopic damages under the skin and exfoliates dead cells. In turn, healthy skin is revealed beneath. The laser light is absorbed by water present in the skin and not by dark or white pigment. Patients with darker skin tones can therefore effectively benefit from this treatment. These fractional beams of heat stimulate the production of new collagen but leave the skin surface unharmed.

Clear + Brilliant has two treatment options -the original handpiece is designed for maintaining the skin and the Clear +Brilliant Perméa™ handpiece boosts skin permeability and improves the appearance of the skin.

Therefore there are two wavelengths that can be used:

1927-nanometer wavelength laser – it treats pigmentation like sunspots and other sun-related skin concerns

1400-nanometer wavelength laser – it reduces the size of the pores, reduces fine lines and improves overall skin complexion.


Clear + Brilliant treatment can address both age and lifestyle skin concerns. It is a gentle but powerful treatment that treats various skin issues during one treatment.

Reduces Fine lines – wrinkles like forehead lines, crow’s feet and laugh lines can be eliminated when collagen and elastin start producing and firm the skin.

Decreases the size of pores – when the pores are smaller the skin looks smoother and also oil and dirt buildup is prevented. Therefore, there is less possibility for acne or blackheads appearance.

Boosts skin tone – when the skin gets a younger-looking tone, it is more protected from harsh environmental conditions.

Makes the skin smoother and more supple – the treatment exfoliates the upper layer of the skin which in turn reveals the younger skin underneath.

Makes the skin cells rejuvenated – Clear +Brilliant treatment wakes up the dormant skin cells when it removes the damaged or dead cells and triggers the production of the new ones.

Resolves the issue of hyperpigmentation – this treatment regulates the production of melanin. It’s the skin’s natural pigment and the treatment provides a consistent skin tone.

Makes the face look young and fresh – the treatment eliminates wrinkles, saggy skin, dark spots and makes the patient’s face look younger.

Provides glowing skin – Clear + Brilliant has a powerful rejuvenating effect, it makes the skin smoother and brighter.

Another advantage of Clear + Brilliant treatment is that it can be combined with other cosmetic procedures like PRP, microneedling and others. Microneedling and Clear+ Brilliant work very nicely together as they both produce younger-looking and healthier skin. They both can improve the texture and tone of the skin, replace the damaged collagen and stimulate the production of the new one.

Clear + Brilliant laser treatment is a natural step in the skincare routine. It is safe and effective, but also very gentle. It requires minimal downtime so it can be fitted into patients’ busy lifestyles. Also, it is a powerful proactive treatment and helps maintain youthful-looking skin for a long time.



    Clear + Brilliant treatment is ideal for patients who wish to take their skincare to the next level. This gentle laser procedure can be used on all skin tones and types. Even though it is primarily used as an anti-aging treatment it can be used for patients in their 20s for maintaining younger-looking skin. It can even help some patients to improve acne and acne scars to some extent.

    However, the treatment should be avoided by patients who are:

    ● Pregnant
    ● Have significant skin conditions like actinic keratosis, rosacea or melasma
    ● Have active infections, rashes, cold sores, inflammations, psoriasis, eczema, open wounds or burns.
    ● Have a predisposition to excessive scarring or keloid formation
    ● Are sensitive to light
    ● If their skin is still healing from previous cosmetic treatments like laser resurfacing, chemical or mechanical peel
    ● Have received Botox or dermal fillers two weeks before the Clear + Brilliant treatment

    Clear+ Brilliant treatment can help both men and women to fight against dull skin, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation caused by time or environmental factors. Patients can maintain their natural beauty for years with this excellent treatment.

    Patients who wish to undergo Clear+Brilliant treatment don’t have to address just the facial concern. This treatment can be done on the neck, décolletage, back, arms or legs.


    Upon arriving at Lucia Clinic, the patient is first consulted with Lucia’s skincare therapist. After a thorough examination of the patient’s skin condition and concerns, the skincare therapist creates a custom-tailored treatment plan, that addresses the patient’s specific skin issues and meets his/her goals and expectation. The number of treatment sessions is determined in order to achieve the best results.

    Before the treatment starts a numbing cream is applied for the patient’s comfort. The patient is provided with protective eye shields, to keep the eyes safe from the laser light. Then the skincare therapist gently glides the Clear + Brilliant handpiece across the patient’s skin. The laser treatment can last from 20 to 30 minutes. The therapist uses the patented Intelligent Optical Tracking™ System (IOTS) which makes sure that proper contact to the patient’s skin is maintained and that all treated areas are uniformly addressed. The laser penetrates to a controlled and absolutely precise depth which makes it safe and comfortable.

    The treatment is only mildly uncomfortable. The patient may experience mild prickling or tingling sensation during the procedure.

    After the treatment the therapist applies a refreshing mask to the patient’s face.

    An important benefit of Clear + Brilliant treatment is that it boosts skin permeability. Right after the treatment, the therapist can apply antioxidants or serums to the skins which greatly increases the laser effectiveness. These products are quickly absorbed by the skin and can speed up the process of skin healing and rejuvenation.


    Some patients can see the results after the first session - they might see an improvement in the removal of the dead skin cells. Most patients might need more to achieve the look they desire. This especially applies to pigment removal and fine lines reductions. As previously mentioned, the number of necessary treatment sessions is determined during the consultation.

    Each treatment session should be separated for at least a month for the most effective results. After the last session, occasional touch-ups are recommended for maintenance of the results.


    Every patient is different, so the results may vary.

    Results of Clear + Brilliant treatment are immediate and progressive. A few days after the treatment, typically a week, the skin feels softer, looks brighter and its tone is more even. More visible improvements are noticed after 3 to 6 treatment sessions.

    On the whole Clear + Brilliant is a non-invasive treatment, so it has minimal downtime. Most patients experience minor swelling and redness on the treated area but these sensitivities typically seize in a day. There is a sensation of heat, but it’s tolerable. Slightly rough sandpapery skin texture can occurs a few days after the treatment. More brilliant skin will show up after the recovery time - typically one week after the treatment.

    After the treatment, excessive sun exposure should be avoided, since the skin is sensitive for a week. So patients should use a high SPF sun protection cream (30-50) if going outside is necessary. This protection is necessary during the production of new collagen and elastin. Also, patients should avoid rubbing and physical exfoliation. The patients should avoid excessive perspiration, vigorous exercise, swimming, saunas and hot baths and showers. It is not recommended to use products that will cause irritation until the skin heals completely.

    The aftercare is simple - the patients should use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer. Also, they can include vitamin C serum in their daily skincare routine.
