WHAT IS IT? A gen­tle laser that’s about half the strength of Fraxel. Per­fect for women un­der 40, it erases fine lines, wrin­kles and age­ing around eyes, re­duces pore size and acne scar­ring, evens out skin colour (in­clud­ing pig­men­ta­tion and sun dam­age) and pro­motes fresh, dewy skin to de­lay age­ing.

PAIN FAC­TOR: Most women de­scribe an in­creased sen­sa­tion of heat dur­ing treat­ment. A top­i­cal anaes­thetic is ap­plied first to min­imise dis­com­fort. Ap­ply­ing a cool­ing gel or cool­ing packs af­ter the pro­ce­dure min­imises any resid­ual heat sen­sa­tion.

DOWN­TIME:: While some red­ness and sub­tle in­flam­ma­tion may be ex­pe­ri­enced straight af­ter, Clear + Bril­liant has been de­signed to be very gen­tle, and min­imise the down­time and side ef­fects typ­i­cally as­so­ci­ated with laser treat­ment.

RE­SULTS: Both im­me­di­ate and on­go­ing. A few days af­ter treat­ment, skin will start to feel softer and look brighter, with im­proved tone, tex­ture and ra­di­ance.

COST: A sin­gle laser treat­ment from About Face costs $399. A course of four is ad­vised.
