What is Clear & Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant, also known as Baby Fraxel, is a facial treatment laser procedure that uses pulsating beams of light which remove layers of skin to reveal a much smoother and clearer appearance. It is similar to another treatment commonly referred to as “Fraxel” due to the same technology utilized, however, Baby Fraxel gives out a more versatile option that is less intensive.
Baby Fraxel vs Fraxel
Baby Fraxel and Fraxel both produce similar results in terms of the treatment and technology used for their exceptional results in that matter. However, the main difference is Fraxel penetrates deeper into the skin and has a longer recovery. Because of this Fraxel can treat deeper lines and wrinkles with more advanced skin aging. Baby Fraxel is quick and gentle as it uses its patented Intelligent Optical Tracking™ System technology to ensure an even distribution towards all treated areas. This allows little to no downtime with only one session, allowing it to fit for the patient in his or her schedule.
