With Clear + Brilliant Perméa treatments, no pre-treatment numbing is required. An antioxidant serum will be applied to the skin immediately following your Clear + Brilliant treatment. A refreshing biocellulose masque may also be applied for 10–15 minutes after treatment.


We call it the mini Fraxel, because it uses the same technology as the Fraxel Re:store, except that the light pixels penetrate less deeply into the skin.This means minimal downtime while still benefitting from the gold standard in facial rejuvenation. Clear + Brilliant is perfectly optimized for preventing and addressing the earliest signs of aging, the effects from environmental insults such as sun, air pollution, and blue light from computer and phone screens. Simple and comfortable, one 15- to 20-minute Clear + Brilliant session can leave your skin feeling smoother, younger-looking and give you that “radiant glow”.

Clear + Brilliant is non-invasive, no cutting, no needles.

Treatments are quick and gentle, require little or no downtime and give noticeable results.


Clear + Brilliant works by creating millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, which replaces damaged skin with healthy tissue and yields younger looking skin.


Requires about 30 minutes for a complete session.

Involves the application of numbing cream prior to treatment in order to provide additional comfort.

The Clear + Brilliant handpiece glides across your face and treats your skin for approximately 15-20 minutes.

Utilizes the patented Intelligent Optical Tracking™ System to ensure proper contact with your skin and provides a uniform application to all treated areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Perméa is a type of laser skin treatment that is especially effective at addressing pigmentation issues such as dark spots.

Other laser treatments, such as Fraxel, penetrate deep layers of the skin to fix age-related damage. Perméa (also known as Clear and Brilliant) is known as the mini Fraxel since it only addresses the top layers of skin. While someone may need multiple sessions of Perméa, you may see results soon after the first treatment.

Perméa helps address other signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and damage that has resulted from sun exposure or pollution.

One Perméa treatment can take just 15-20 minutes. However, Perméa can take up to 30 minutes depending on how many areas of the face need to be treated. Either way, there is no downtime after the procedure.
