How does CLEAR + BRILLIANT® work?

By using a unique wavelength of 1927nm, Clear + Brilliant® provides a non ablative laser treatment, meaning targeted tissue is heated up without the need of destroying it. By creating thousands of microscopic treatment zones this not only stimulates the production of collagen but also enables a more effective delivery of topical products. The treatment is suitable for all skin types with little downtime.

What complementary treatments are available?

Before treatment, a Hydrafacial® provides a deep cleanse, extraction and hydration of the skin. Following treatment, Profhilo® delivers the highest quality hyaluronic acid into the dermal layer to plump and hydrate, whilst Botox® is effective primarily in the upper face, and filler achieves contour and definition in the lower face. Laser and IPL treatments can address a wide range of concerns. All patients benefit from a comprehensive skincare regimen, tailored for their skin type and their history of sun and pollutant exposure. Our experienced aestheticians can devise a bespoke regimen following skin analysis using our Observ 520X which provides 10 different metrics for analysis of current skin condition.

The treatment takes approximately 20 minutes depending on area. During the treatment, you will feel some heat and a sensation like an elastic band snapping on your skin. After the treatment there will be erythema (local skin redness) and oedema (swelling) for a couple of hours. Some redness and swelling in the treatment area will occur which settles within the first few hours but may last longer.


Visible results can start to appear on the day of treatment but may take up to 48 hours and full results only appear on the conclusion of a course of treatment. Top up treatments are recommended and should be combined with a comprehensive skincare regime to maintain long lasting results.
