Clear + Brilliant is a non-ablative fractional laser, which means that the surface of the skin is not broken during treatment. The laser is guided over the skin, removing the upper layers of skin and dull, dead skin cells. This treatment also boosts the skin’s production of collagen, which plumps the skin and reduces signs of aging.
So many factors can impact the appearance of our skin. Aging, stress, and environmental pollutants can all contribute to a complexion that appears tired and dull. Fortunately for patients in the Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, and Port St. Lucie areas, the skin rejuvenation experts at Lickstein Plastic Surgery offer a number of treatments to help our patients enjoy more youthful-looking skin. One such treatment is Clear + Brilliant, which can reduce fine lines, shrink pore size, and reveal fresher skin with a youthful glow with no downtime.
We are proud to employ Clear + Brilliant Touch, the most advanced Clear + Brilliant laser. This dual-wavelength system allows us to perform a customized complete treatment, targeting both the surface and the tissues beneath the skin’s surface to optimize results for the patient’s skin type and goals
Our patients enjoy so many benefits of treatment with Clear + Brilliant, including:
- Reduced pore size
- Fewer fine lines
- Improved skin texture
- Correction of acne scarring

Preparing for Clear + Brilliant Treatment
There isn’t much you need to do to prepare for laser skin resurfacing with Clear + Brilliant. When you attend your pre-treatment consultation, you will be able to candidly discuss your concerns and goals with a licensed aesthetician. Together, you will decide whether Clear + Brilliant is the right treatment for you, and your session will be scheduled. Your aesthetician may recommend that you minimize sun exposure and discontinue use of certain skin care products before treatment.
The Clear + Brilliant Procedure
Treatment with Clear + Brilliant is performed in our office and takes about 30 minutes per session.
Before treatment, your aesthetician will apply a topical anesthetic cream to your skin to help you remain comfortable. Next, the Clear + Brilliant handpiece will be gently guided across the treatment area. This laser skin resurfacing technology uses a patented Intelligent Optical Tracking™ system to ensure steady contact for consistent application.1
No downtime is necessary after Clear + Brilliant laser skin resurfacing. You may experience some mild swelling and/or redness, but this will naturally resolve within a day of treatment. You will be able to resume your normal skin care routine immediately after treatment, though your aesthetician may advise you not to use certain products.
Most of our patients begin to notice the results of their Clear + Brilliant laser resurfacing treatment after their first session. Your skin will continue to improve as collagen production increases, revealing more youthful, softer, and healthy-looking skin.
Is treatment with Clear + Brilliant painful?
No. Your skin will be numbed with a topical cream before treatment begins. You may feel some light pressure or heat, but treatment with Clear + Brilliant is not painful.
How much is Clear + Brilliant treatment?
The cost of Clear + Brilliant is unique for each patient, and depends on factors such as the area treated and the number of treatments performed. During your consultation, you will be presented with a detailed cost break-down for your personalized treatment plan.
How many Clear + Brilliant treatments will I need?
While you will likely begin to notice brighter and more even-toned skin after a single treatment, we recommend that our patients undergo a series of Clear + Brilliant treatments for optimal results.
Who is a candidate for Clear + Brilliant laser skin resurfacing?
Clear + Brilliant is effective for treating most skin types, and is an ideal treatment for our patients who seek preventative skin rejuvenation with no downtime. If you have certain skin conditions such as rosacea, or if you take certain medications, Clear + Brilliant may not be the right treatment for you.
Also, it is important to note that Clear + Brilliant is an especially gentle laser skin treatment. If you seek more dramatic skin rejuvenation, your aesthetician may recommend a different procedure.
