Clear + Brilliant A New Laser that Promises A Lot: Beauty and Brains!

By Dr. Susan Van Dyke
June 7, 2011

CLEAR: clean, translucent.

BRILLIANT: wonderful, smart and exciting. (I love when Hugh Grant says it). It also means “sparkly, reflective and shiny” like a diamond.

Clear + Brilliant is now a laser. Interesting name. Can it deliver clean, translucent, wonderful, smart, exciting, sparkly, reflective and shiny skin?

This new laser Clear + Brilliant (C+B) is from Solta, the same world renowned and respected company that makes the FRAXEL laser and THERMAGE. C+ B is designed to fill the gap between the FRAXEL (a serious wrinkle, acne scar, sundamage laser) and the lighter microdermabrasion and superficial peels. This is a welcome addition to our armamentarium to fight aging and sundamage. The younger patient who is not satisfied with the spa offerings but it not yet ready for the serious laser resurfacing treatments will love the C +B.

C+ B comes with a very attractive price point ( one third the cost of a Fraxel) and there is no real downtime. It actually is a lunch time laser. I am pretty excited about being one of twelve centers in the US to get our hands on this laser. It is newly FDA approved (May 2011) and will officially be launched in the US July 1, 2011. It looks like an Apple computer, great design, great technology.

I think it has a future in our lineup of rejuvenating lasers. Although, not sure it will raise your IQ.
