Early signs of skin aging always cause resentment. “I should have treated my skin properly when I had the chance.” It is common to feel resentful when your skin ages. Poor skin care regime is not the only cause for early signs of aging. It is a natural process caused by poor nutrition, sun damage, pollution, smoking, and for some unfortunate people, genetics can also be a major cause.

There are several ways you can get the youthful, glowing skin back as with dermal fillers, photorejuvenation, facial rejuvenation surgeries, and laser treatments to name a few. Treatment depends on the intensity of your skin damage.


Every person has a different skin type. The damage caused to your skin may be different from that of your friend. The treatment and its intensity are likely to differ based on what you are looking to treat:

  • Do you want to reduce the fine lines on your face?
  • Do you want to reduce the pores from appearing?
  • Would you like an improvement in your skin tone, texture, and overall appearance?
  • Are you worried about whether it is suitable for your skin tone?

Dr. Kianoush Shakib has just the right solution for you at Allergy Skin Spa with Clear + Brilliant, a non-ablative laser resurfacing treatment which stimulates collagen growth in the skin, giving you healthy glowing skin.


Clear + Brilliant is commonly called ‘Baby Fraxel’ as it uses the same technology. It uses pulsating beams of light to exfoliate layers of your skin to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion but it is not as intense as Fraxel.

Clear + Brilliant is a simple procedure that minimizes your pore size, smooths your skin texture and removes brown spots, skin discolorations, pigmentations, and dark spots which are a typical result of sun damage. The sun damaged cells either make too much pigment or no pigment at all causing white or dark spots on your skin. The treatment evens the skin tone by breaking up damaged cells at the base of the epidermis.

Are you worried about your skin tone? Clear + Brilliant laser treatment is suitable for all skin tones. Dr. Shakib explains that Clear + Brilliant lasers are absorbed by water in your skin and not by the dark or white pigments. Patients with darker skin tone can also receive the treatment effectively.


The procedure begins with a consultation with Dr. Shakib to see if the treatment is right for you. A numbing cream will be applied on your face for additional comfort during the procedure. Clear + Brilliant laser pokes tiny columns of heat into your skin, leaving untreated areas intact. The fractioned wounds on your skin strengthen the skin’s collagen production. An anti-oxidant serum is applied to your skin immediately after the treatment. A biocellulose masque may also be applied.

After the procedure, Dr. Shakib will suggest a post-treatment skin care regime that needs to be followed. Clear + Brilliant laser treatment is not as intense as other laser treatments. Your skin will not be inflamed, red or looking burned and flaking for many days. The treatment has a low downtime compared to other treatments. Clear + Brilliant can also combined with microneedling and Botox as a preventive aging plan.
