LASER + LIGHT + ENERGY

OVERVIEW OF CLEAR + BRILLIANT IN WASHINGTON DC

What is Clear + Brilliant

The newest innovation from the makers of Fraxel, the Clear + Brilliant laser gives you skin that looks and acts younger, without the downtime.

OUR APPROACH
  • This can be a treatment of the face alone, but Dr. Sherber generally recommends including the jawline and neck, and even the chest and hands depending on the appearance of your skin. This stimulates the production of new collagen and triggers son cell turnover: these are processes that slow with aging, and so the Clear + Brilliant treatment makes a meaningful physiologic impact on the skin.

  • This laser treatment is akin to ‘aerating the lawn’ and enhances the absorption of topical active ingredients applied post-treatment. Dr. Sherber will choose a post-treatment serum that best addresses your skin’s needs, and it will absorb much more deeply than if applied to untreated skin.

What Results Can I Expect?

First, numbing cream is applied to your skin for about 20 minutes, and then your skin is cleansed.

Dr. Sherber will then pass the laser over your skin, making a microscopic grid of laser beams that deliver energy down to the collagen layer of the skin.

This may feel prickly or hot, but not painful. You will be flushed following treatment, as though you had been in a sauna, and that will begin to subside immediately post-treatment. By the next morning, your skin should be back to normal – this is a huge innovation in decreasing social downtime.

For those with very sensitive skin, there may be faint pinkness remaining on particularly sensitive areas such as around the eyes, or on the neck and chest, but this is easily coverable with makeup. There may also be subtle puffiness under the eyes if the skin there needs more intensive treatment.

SAFETY

Clear + Brilliant is a innovative fractionated non-ablative diode (1440nm) laser. Its target in the skin is water, which means that it acts directly on collagen and can be used safely in skin tones from fair to deeply pigmented, and can be used safely in men without damaging facial hair follicles.

PERMÉA

Clear + Brilliant Perméa is the newest laser in this system, with a wavelength (1927nm) slightly different from the original Clear + Brilliant to target uneven pigmentation more specifically.

Clinical studies demonstrated that those treated with Clear + Brilliant Perméa followed by a topical antioxidant serum noted greater uniform tone, boosted radiance and enhanced overall appearance.

  • This can be especially effective for dark marks left behind after acne breakouts (postinflammatory hyperpigmentation) and even for melasma.
  • One 10 to 20-minute session changes the way your skin behaves so that it actually acts younger – increased collagen production, quicker skin cell turnover – and looks younger. With each treatment you will notice the radiance of healthy, youthful skin as your skin behaves more like younger skin.
  • Routine treatments deliver lasting results that can keep you looking younger for years to come, and a series of 6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart will give you an improvement that rivals the laser treatments that demand major social downtime.

What are Dr. Sherber’s patients saying?

  • Great experience – Baltimore, MD
    Botox/Juvaderm has made me look 10 yrs younger! Excellent results. Minimal bruising. Very comfortable experience with a very caring doctor.”

    – Kim in Pa (RealSelf)

  • “I started seeing Dr. Sherber for Botox, laser and fillers, approximately 10 years ago in Baltimore. I followed her to Washington D.C. when she and her husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Rad, opened a joint practice. Last year it was time to for Dr. Sherber to hand me over to Dr. Rad for surgical work. I had an amazing experience with Dr. Rad when he performed a lower face/necklift, chin implant, lower blepharoplasty and fat transfer. At the one year mark, I decided to return for a tummy tuck and upper arm lipo. This time I was smart to stay in Sibley hospital – 2 nights – after my experience with hard-to-control pain during the first 2 post-op days last year, when we were in an outpatient surgical center. I was treated very well despite being very needy with respect to pain control. Everything is still very swollen and bruised but looks good so far. I will continue to travel to D.C. for maintenance treatment and any new procedures with both of them. They are that amazing.”

  • “I have been seeing Dr. Sherber for over a decade – I followed her from Baltimore to Washington D.C. – for skin care including Botox, fillers and laser, as well as medical dermatology including total skin checks. She is brilliant and personable and I recommend her highly to everyone I know!”

  • “Dr. Sherber is a brilliant physician who knows how to make just about any woman look much better in the most non-invasive ways. An artist!”
