Looking for a solution to treat melasma? 

Look no further than our Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatment. This treatment requires almost no downtime and is not painful.

Being a non-invasive laser, it requires no surgery or injections, while providing noticeable results.

What is Melasma? 

Melasma is a hyperpigmentation skin disorder that is difficult to treat. It can look like your skin is uneven, with discoloration and dark spots. Certain things can irritate or trigger melasma, like hormones and the sun. 

Melasma can be considered chronic, in which case treatment would be the way to handle it rather than letting it work its way out on its own. This is when we would recommend the Clear + Brilliant Treatment to our patients. 

Who gets Melasma?

According to research at the Cleveland Clinic, women are much more likely to get melasma than men, but it is possible in everyone. If you have darker brown skin or tend to tan well, you are more likely to get melasma than those who have fair skin. Pregnant women are the most likely to get melasma due to hormones, although the relation between hormones and melasma is unknown! 

How can Melasma be treated?

Melasma can be treated with the Clear + Brilliant Laser’s 1927-nm diode laser, which helps with hyperpigmentation, sun spots, anti-aging, freckles, and more. Along with in office treatments like the Clear and Brilliant laser, it is also recommended to treat melasma with topical skin lighteners like hydroquinone to maintain post-treatment results.

What is the Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatment?

The Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatment is a popular laser used to improve melasma, skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, texture, sun damage, and reduce pore size. It’s commonly used to treat the face, neck, and chest. This treatment duration is about 30-45 minutes long. 

What does Clear + Brilliant feel like?

The provider will apply numbing cream before treatment to ensure the treatment is comfortable. Patients have described that after receiving the Clear + Brilliant laser treatment, their face felt warm, almost like a sunburn but that feeling went away within the hour. 

What is the downtime after the Clear and Brilliant treatment?

Clear + Brilliant only requires about 2-3 hours of downtime, which is really great compared to most lasers which require multiple days. Following treatment, you may experience some pink/red tones to the skin, however this only will last a few hours. The next week or so after treatment, your skin will feel like sandpaper, but it is not visible, just noticeable to the touch. 

How many sessions should be completed?

Clinical studies have shown best results after at least 4 treatments of Clear + Brilliant to treat melasma, one month apart from each other. Once completing treatment, your skin will feel softer and skin tone will improve, giving you a nice glow! At Healthy Solutions Medspa, we offer single treatments as well as packages of Clear + Brilliant treatments.

When will I see results?

Results will be noticeable about a week or two after treatment is completed, and can last months depending on your factors like the products you use for your skin post treatment and protection from the sun.

What is the price of Clear + Brilliant?

At Healthy Solutions Medspa, Clear + Brilliant starts at $399, depending on which level of treatment you receive, in which the provider can speak to you about to decide which is best for you. We also offer packages of 3 and 6 Clear + Brilliant treatments which are discounted. 

Who is a candidate for Clear + Brilliant?

Clear + Brilliant is safe for all skin types and can be used to treat melasma on the forehead, cheeks, chin, and nose. 

Is the Clear + Brilliant laser safe on darker skin?

The Clear and Brilliant laser is FDA approved and is safe for darker skin because of it’s low energy and low density.

According to a white paper on “The Safety and Efficacy of Treatment with a 1927-nm Diode Laser With and Without Topical Hydroquinone for Facial Hyperpigmentation and Melasma in Darker Skin Type” by Wilson, Jones, Bolton, Larsen, and Guillen, “no worsening of hyperpigmentation or melasma was observed” for patients with darker skin being treated with the Clear and Brilliant laser 1927-nm hand piece.

Another white paper on “Treatment of Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation in Patients with Darker Skin Types Using a Low Energy 1927 nm Non-Ablative Fractional Laser” concluded that Clear and Brilliant “1927 nm wavelength laser is a safe and effective modality for improving post inflammatory hyperpigmentation in patients with darker skin types.”

New Year Beauty Resolution: Clear + Beautiful Skin

New Year Beauty Resolution: Clear + Beautiful Skin

The new year has officially started, and that means new resolutions!

One of the most common goals we’ve already seen for 2020 is clear, youthful and radiant skin.

There have been countless different beauty and skincare trends in the last decade, and we should definitely be leaving some of them there.

From charcoal and red-light masks to CBD and elaborate 15-step routines, we’ve learned that not everything will work on everyone’s skin (or anybody’s for that matter), and a lot of it can be a waste of money and energy.

New Year Resolution Clear & Beautiful Skin

That being said, it’s time to leave all of that in 2019.

It’s a new year, and we’re basically living in the future: technology changes everything in our lives, no less our skincare.

So, isn’t it about time we have a solution for our beauty goals that doesn’t require an endless period of trial-and-error with skincare products, needles or surgery?

2020 has entered the chat, and she says yes!

One of the most innovative procedures to come our way is called Clear + Brilliant.

Essentially, the treatment improves the signs and effects that time and environment can have on your skin, while also preventing visible signs of aging.

Let’s face it: our skin changes over time. Fine lines, enlarged pores and uneven tone and texture can be inevitable, especially as we age.

Even if you take good care of your skin with a consistent, preventative routine with top-notch products, unfortunately nobody can look like they’re in their 20s forever.

Luckily, we’ve discovered and proven new ways to fix what we don’t like and also prevent them from coming.

Clear + Brilliant could be the answer to your New Year’s resolution, but you probably have some questions:

What is Clear + Brilliant and what does it do?

The Clear + Brilliant treatment is a gentle laser procedure that helps to better overall complexion by improving skin tone, texture, uneven pigmentation and the appearance of fine lines and pores, while also treating and preventing signs of aging.

Using fractional laser technology, the treatment works by targeting the upper layers of the skin and replacing damaged cells with healthy tissue.

This essentially triggers the skin’s natural healing process, leaving you with younger looking, radiant skin.

The procedure does not require any surgery or injections, and is 100% non-invasive.

What should I expect?

A typical Clear + Brilliant treatment begins with a consultation with a licensed professional to establish that the treatment is right for you and your skin concerns.

Before the treatment, your licensed professional may apply a numbing cream to your face to eliminate any possibility of discomfort.

The procedure then consists of guiding a laser hand piece across the skin and target areas, and takes about 20-30 minutes from start to finish.

You will see both immediate and progressive results over the course of a week or two.

Is Clear + Brilliant painful?

The treatment is non-invasive, quick and gentle. Patients have reported that the procedure is minimally painful, with a slightly hot and/or prickly feeling that is easily alleviated by applying ice to the skin.

At most, minor swelling or redness may occur for a few hours following the treatment.

How much does Clear + Brilliant laser treatment cost?

The average cost of a single Clear + Brilliant treatment is around $450, but can vary depending on location, provider and prior state of your skin.

Is Clear + Brilliant worth it?

A high majority of patients say that Clear + Brilliant is worth it due to the results, minimal pain, quickness and downtime of the procedure as compared to other laser treatments.

Patients report that after just one treatment they noticed softer, younger looking skin, improved tone and a radiant glow, and no need to take time off from work.

Clear + Brilliant Before and After:

How often should I get the Clear + Brilliant treatment?

Results can most likely be seen after just one session, however 4-6 treatments are recommended in order to notice visible improvements and achieve the look that you want. It is also recommended to separate each treatment by a month for best results, depending on your skin condition and care regimen.

Can I exercise after my Clear + Brilliant treatment?

A light walk is OK following treatment; however, it would be best to avoid strenuous exercise as is it recommended to avoid perspiring and sweating for at least 24 hours after the procedure. Additionally, you should avoid any sun exposure due to heightened sensitivity.

What is the downtime for Clear + Brilliant?

There is little to no downtime for the Clear + Brilliant laser treatment.

Patients are able to get the procedure while on lunch break on a work day and return back looking and feeling normal.

At most, some slight redness or heat may occur on the face immediately after the procedure, but can be alleviated with ice or a cold pack.

The aftercare is simple, and your doctor may advise using gentle and minimal products on your face while avoiding sunlight.


Achieve your New Year’s resolution of finally having the radiant complexion you’ve always dreamed of without surgery, needles or wasting money on trendy products that don’t show results.
