There are many things that contribute to how your skin looks and feels– your personal history, genetics, age, health, and lifestyle all can have an effect on your skin and how it shows the signs of aging.
Whether you have begun to see signs of aging or not, it’s important to take care of your skin on an ongoing basis. Having a set skincare routine at home is important, but it doesn’t completely match the effectiveness you’ll experience when getting routine facial treatments in a dermatology office. Having both will help you both treat and prevent signs of aging.
One of the least invasive laser treatments is Clear + Brilliant®. It works for women and men of all ages to both prevent and treat the early signs of aging. The results will give your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.
It’s a gentle, yet effective skin-resurfacing laser treatment that is often thought of as Fraxel’s baby sister. It is most popular for patients who have melasma and younger patients who want to keep their skin looking great.
Clear + Brilliant® uses fractional diode laser technology to create thousands of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin. This triggers your skin’s natural healing process which boosts elastin and collagen production. This replaces the damaged skin with new, healthy tissue to give you younger-looking skin.
Clear + Brilliant® can help improve the following signs of aging on the face, neck, and chest:
During the treatment, you can expect:
Treatments take 30 minutes or less, but total appointment times can vary depending on additional steps that may be needed. As with most laser treatments, the number of treatments needed will depend on your individual concerns and goals. Though you will see improvement after one treatment, the most dramatic results will be seen after a series of 4-6 treatments.
You will start to see the best results 1-2 weeks after treatment, as more even, softer skin is revealed. Many patients will combine this treatment with other cosmetic procedures (ex. Botox, dermal fillers, etc.) to enhance their overall appearance.
Clear + Brilliant® is a great treatment to add to your skincare routine. During your initial consultation with Dr. Potozkin and Dr. Ellis, a personalized treatment plan will be developed to best suit your needs. We will also make recommendations for your at-home skincare routine to optimize your results and keep your skin looking its best year round.
“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”
"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
