It creates a more even skin canvas, with a reduction in the appearance of pores. And is a perfect complement to individual beauty and lifestyle regimens.
Clinically proven, and patient demanded, there’s no question that Clear + Brilliant™ delivers real results. In clinical studies, Clear + Brilliant™ delivered a measurable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and helped rejuvenate skin tone and texture. Time after time, Clear + Brilliant™ patients reported “looking and feeling younger” and rediscovering their skin’s natural “radiance and smoothness”. For our patients, these are the kind of results that speak volumes.
