The Clear + Brilliant® Laser System (1440nm and 1927nm hand pieces) is used for dermatological procedures to address skin laxity and tone and for general skin resurfacing.

  • Are predisposed to keloid formation or excessive scarring;
  • Have a condition that may compromise the immune system, such as HIV, lupus, scleroderma, or systemic infections;
  • Have a known sensitivity to light or if you are taking photosensitizing agents or medications;
  • Are on systemic steroids (e.g., prednisone, dexamethasone), which should be rigorously avoided prior to and throughout the course of treatment;
  • Are using retinoids, which should be avoided for at least 2 weeks prior to and during treatment;
  • Are undergoing isotretinoin acne treatment or taking drugs in a similar class;
  • Have skin that is still recovering from a cosmetic procedure, such as a chemical or mechanical peel, or laser resurfacing; or
