Clear + Brilliant Laser


Serenity MedSpa is excited to be one of the first to offer the Clear + Brilliant Laser, a new and highly effective anti-aging technology.*


We all age and the sooner we begin taking good care of our skin, the better it will look later. Clear + Brilliant resurfacing laser treatment is one of our most popular treatments as it will give you great results with very little downtime. It is an excellent skin resurfacing laser that will reveal your youthful glow, luminosity and smoothness.

cblaser1How does Clear + Brilliant laser work?

Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser that renews and revitalizes your skin from the inside out. The laser creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, to encourage the growth of healthy, younger looking tissue.

What kind of results can I expect from Clear + Brilliant laser?

Clear + Brilliant laser addresses not only unwanted signs of aging—such as sun spots, wrinkles and scars—but also gives you:

  • Naturally radiant skin
  • Improved smoothness and texture
  • Reduction in the appearance of pore size

Is  Clear + Brilliant laser safe for darker skin types?

Clear + Brilliant is a gentle skin resurfacing laser that is safe for all skin types, including darker complexions. At Serentiy MedSpa, we have extensive experience treating darker skin patients with the Clear + Brilliant laser. Because safely is our top priority , we always recommend that all first-time patients schedule a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Lisa Kang to ensure you are a good candidate for the Clear + Brilliant laser.

What can I expect during the Clear + Brilliant laser treatment?

After your consultation, we begin by taking a before photo. Afterwards, we apply a strong topical numbing cream to the area to be treated and wait about 30 minutes for it to take effect. We will, then, wipe off the numbing cream and begin the treatment. The laser treatment takes usually takes less than 10 minutes for the face or neck and chest areas.

After the treatment, the skin appears temporarily red and hot to the touch—similar to a sunburn. To help ease any discomfort, we have you relax with a cooling face pack for about 10 minutes. When you are ready to leave, we apply aloe vera ointment and sunscreen to the treated area.

After the treatment, you will be a little red for about one day. The peeling process is very subtle and your skin will feel slightly rough for about one week. You are able to wear make-up right after the treatment. People love this treatment because there is very little downtime and it delivers great results.

How many treatments of the Clear + Brilliant laser do I need?

The Clear + Brilliant laser is a fractionated skin resurfacing laser which will resurface about 20 to 30% of the treatment area per treatment. You can see a significant difference even after one treatment, but for most people, we recommend a series of three to five treatments to get the best results depending on the level of your skin damage. You may repeat the treatment as often as every three weeks.

What is the before and after care for the Clear + Brilliant laser?

Please inform our physician of all the skin care products that you use as well as any medications that you are taking before the treatment. Avoid using any Retin-A (tretinoin) products for two weeks prior to the treatment and for two weeks after the treatment. Do not use Clarisonic or similar devices for two weeks after the procedure. Do not use products containing acids on the area to be treated for at least one week. You should not have taken Accutane for at least one year.

“I just wanted to write and thank Serenity MedSpa for the free Clear + Brilliant skin treatment. It’s been a couple of weeks and my face looks great. My skin is noticeably softer and smoother overall. Another unexpected bonus – no breakouts since the treatment! Everything went exactly as described; that night I felt like I had a bit of a sunburn, and my skin was red. The next morning everything was back to normal. My skin felt rough for the next few days while the dead cells were sloughing off, and then voila! Soft skin! I realize that most people get several treatments for “optimal” results, but I really feel like just one treatment has made a noticeable difference. Thank you!” ~Julie D.
