Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatments for Facial Rejuvenation
When you're looking for a "starter" laser skin treatment such as Clear + Brilliant® to address the earliest signs of aging, Terry Conrad can create a customized solution. People from Greenwich, Stamford, Darien and throughout Connecticut trust Terry for safe and effective laser skin rejuvenation.
What Is Clear + Brilliant®?
Clear + Brilliant uses fractional laser technology that addresses early signs of aging and can be part of a skincare regimen that even helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles. You might hear about “breakthrough” technologies every week in the aesthetics field, but the introduction of fractional lasers truly revolutionized skin rejuvenation treatments. Older laser technology essentially sandblasted the skin’s top layer and required a lengthy recovery for patients. Fractional lasers create microchannels in the skin, leaving surrounding tissue undamaged.
The tradeoff for little-to-no downtime following the gentler procedure is that more treatments are needed. The changes aren’t as drastic but can be part of an overall plan to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful.
What is Clear + Brilliant® used to treat?
Besides minimizing the appearance of fine lines that can precede more significant signs of aging, Clear + Brilliant can help improve the skin’s overall appearance. The treatment can shrink enlarged pores and improve both the tone and texture of your skin.

What can I expect from my Clear + Brilliant® Laser Treatment?
Terry spends plenty of time with you when you come to Naturallyou for treatment. She discusses your aesthetic concerns and examines your skin to ensure the procedure matches your goals. A Clear + Brilliant treatment session may begin with the application of a topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort.
Once the area is numb, Terry gently glides the handpiece along the skin as the laser delivers heat energy to the skin’s deeper layers. This takes about 20 minutes and you can expect the whole procedure to last about 30 minutes. Immediately after the treatment, we may apply specialized serum to boost the results. A cooling masque is applied to conclude the treatment.

What is Recovery Like After a Clear + Brilliant® Laser Treatment?
Even though there is no downtime needed after the procedure, you can expect some fairly minor side effects. Skin typically appears pinkish for about 6 hours after the procedure and it may feel somewhat dry the next morning. In most cases, however, people won’t be able to tell that you’ve had a laser skin treatment. In rare situations a patient may notice redness that persists for up to 2 days.
