Clear + Brilliant: Pre And Post Treatment Instructions

Clear + Brilliant, by Solta Medical offered at Seaport Medspa is a type of cosmetic treatment known as a laser skin resurfacing procedure. It is designed to improve the appearance of the skin by targeting and addressing various skin concerns, such as fine lines, uneven texture, and discoloration.

During a Clear + Brilliant treatment, a handheld laser device is used to deliver gentle fractional laser energy to the skin. The laser creates microscopic treatment zones, which help stimulate collagen production and promote the growth of new, healthier skin cells.
