The Clear + Brilliant laser is a gental laser used to treat early signs of facial aging. It is a non-ablative, fractional laser that works by creating millions of microscopic treatment areas in the upper layers of the skin, jumpstarting the production of collagen and healthy tissue, for younger looking skin. It is a simple, and popular, procedure at Zuckerman Plastic Surgery with low downtime that minimizes pore size, smooths texture, and removes brown spots.
