What is Clear and Brilliant?

- Downtime: Usually requires some downtime for recovery.
Clear and Brilliant

Maximizing the Benefits
We understand the importance of a comprehensive skincare approach. While Clear and Brilliant is a fantastic standalone treatment, combining it with other procedures can amplify and extend its benefits.
Blue Light Therapy
- Ideal For: Acne-prone and oily skin.
- Benefits: Blue Light Therapy effectively targets acne-causing bacteria, reducing inflammation and preventing future breakouts. When combined with Clear and Brilliant, which helps to minimize pores and improve skin texture, the result is a clearer, more refined complexion.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
- Ideal For: Sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation.
- Benefits: IPL works by delivering broad-spectrum light to the deeper parts of the skin, addressing issues like sun spots, age spots, and redness. When used in conjunction with Clear and Brilliant, it can further even out skin tone and enhance overall radiance
- Ideal For: Improving skin texture and tone.
- Benefits: Chemical Peels involve applying a solution to the skin to remove the top layers, promoting new, healthier skin growth. This process complements Clear and Brilliant by addressing surface-level concerns, leading to smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
Clear and Brilliant Post Botox or Fillers
- Ideal For: Enhancing and maintaining the results of injectables.
- After Botox: Clear and Brilliant can be an excellent follow-up to Botox treatments. While Botox addresses dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles formed by facial movements), Clear and Brilliant improves overall skin texture and tone, providing a more comprehensive anti-aging solution.
- After Fillers: Similarly, following up dermal fillers with Clear and Brilliant can enhance the skin’s surface texture and quality, complementing the volume and contour improvements achieved with fillers.
Maximizing the Benefits
- Timing: It’s important to appropriately time these treatments. For instance, it’s usually recommended to wait a couple of weeks after fillers or Botox before undergoing Clear and Brilliant treatments. Schedule a consultation and one of our experts can make you a custom treatment plan.
- Personalized Approach: Each individual’s skin is unique, and our experts at Simply Dermatology can create a tailored treatment plan that aligns with your specific skin concerns and goals.
