If you're curious about skin lasers, then we sure you've already heard about Fraxel, the popular laser known for its ability to make your skin feel baby soft and look super smooth. But you may not know about its downsides: It doesn't work on all skin tones; it's very intense (think: somewhat painful with weeks of downtime); and it's not suitable for every skin type.


Which is probably why the Clear and Brilliant laser is becoming super-popular.


Think of Clear and Brilliant as Fraxel's baby sister.  It's a gentle, yet effective skin-resurfacing treatment that's ideal for most skin types.


What does the Clear and Brilliant laser do?

Clear and Brilliant is a laser treatment uses fractional laser technology to create a ton of microscopic thermal injuries to the skin. These injuries trigger your skin's natural healing process, which, in turn, boosts collagen and elastin production (the proteins responsible for keeping your skin smooth and firm) and replaces damaged skin with healthy tissue.

Clear and Brilliant can be used on the face, neck, and chest, and is great at smoothing fine lines and rough texture, minimizing the appearance of large pores, and fading hyperpigmentation, like acne marks and dark spots. "It's really the ideal treatment for anyone seeing early signs of aging or just wanting to improve their overall skin health," says Dr. Nema.

Clear + Brilliant, a routine treatment, but delivers noticeable results that keep others guessing your secret.

How many Clear and Brilliant treatments does it take to see results?

Most people notice that initial glow after just one Clear and Brilliant treatment, but the best results (visible reduction in fine lines and dark spots) happen after completing a series of treatments.  Dr Nema can recommend the ideal number of treatments for you based on your specific skincare goals but it's important to know that benefits of Clear and Brilliant are cumulative so the more treatments you get the better your skin will look in the long run.

How long does Clear and Brilliant last?


You'll experience softer, clearer skin for two weeks after your appointment, and that glow can be maintained for up to six months. The longevity of your results depend on a few things, including your age, skin condition, and how well you take care of your skin post-treatment. Being consistent with a good skincare routine is key for maintaining your results.  Visit our SKIN CARE SHOP to see the full list of ZO Skin Health products.

Worth it 100%

Is Clear and Brilliant worth it? 

Clear and Brilliant is a great way to refresh, resurface, and brighten up your skin—plus, it's one of the few pro laser treatments that doesn't require extensive downtime, which is a major plus. Again, as with all lasers, there is some risk for scarring, hyperpigmentation, and burns (especially if you have super-sensitive or melanin-rich skin) so it's incredibly important to see a qualified medical practitioner for your treatment.
