What Is Clear + Brilliant®?
Clear + Brilliant® is a fractional laser system designed to prevent and address visible signs of aging caused by time and environmental factors. The system was developed by Solta Medical®, the maker of other advanced technologies like Fraxel® Dual Laser Resurfacing. During a Clear + Brilliant® treatment, the laser targets the outer skin layers to effectively minimize the appearance of fine lines and pore size, while creating a more even skin tone and texture. The non-invasive procedure can be performed in a quick office visit with little to no downtime. The Polacek Center for Plastic Surgery is the first and only practice in Rhode Island to offer the Clear + Brilliant® treatment.

What Does Clear + Brilliant® Laser Treatment Involve?
A typical Clear + Brilliant® treatment session lasts about 30 minutes total. The target area will first be numbed with a topical cream to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the duration of your appointment. The laser handpiece is then guided across the area for approximately 15 to 20 minutes. During this time, millions of tiny treatment zones are created—a process that stimulates the body to replace the damaged skin with healthier tissue. For optimal treatment results, the Clear + Brilliant® technology utilizes Intelligent Optical Tracking™, a patented system that ensures an even treatment across the target area.
What Can I Expect in My Clear + Brilliant® Results?
Results from Clear + Brilliant® will vary for each patient, but you should see an immediate glow when you leave our office. Over the next week or two, your skin should continue to improve, feeling softer and looking brighter and more even. The rejuvenating results from Clear + Brilliant® can typically last for several months, depending on your age, skin condition, and skin care regimen.
I have met with Dr. Polacek a few times now and although I was nervous, she put me immediately at ease.
She is a calming presence of knowledge and listens well. I appreciate how she has helped me look more rested. I have also had 3 sessions with Beth Walker who is amazing! Her clear explanation of the Clear & Brilliant treatment and what to expect was spot on. Her passion for her work shines through her lovely personality. Lastly, they have done an excellent job navigating the Covid situation…the offices are spotless,
distancing, hand washing etc lets me know they are seriously making sure we are all safe and I really appreciate that!
