Clear and Brilliant Laser. How is this more effective than some of the others on the market?

How is this laser more effective than some of the others on the market? I tried Gentle Waves and saw absolutely no improvement.

Answer is in the wavelength of Clear and Brilliant

C and B is actually, in reality a tuned down version of Fraxel, almost identical in the 1927 wavelength. This wavelength can do fantastic things, including reduction of brown pigmentation, improve skin texture, and also pore size. With the Permea system it can enhance penetration of active skin vitamins. The answer is lies in the wavelength, nor the laser itself (which is good due to the wavelength and how it is delivered). All the best, Dr Davin Lim, Brisbane. Australia.

Clear and Brilliant...

Thank you for your question.  You are comparing apples and oranges.  C+B (1440nm) is a fractionated resurfacing laser that improves tone and texture, yielding a beautiful radiant glow.  Additionally, it has the Permea handpiece (1927nm) which works remarkably well on pigmentation as well as making the skin more permeable to topical products allowing them to work more effectively.  GentleWaves is a LED photomodulation device, not a laser.  Gentlewaves is most commonly used post other procedures like Fraxel or microdermabrasion to improve that treatments results and more importantly speed up the healing process.  It can also be used to treat sunburns.  It is not commonly used as a primary treatment as alone it does not have the results of resurfacing lasers like the Clear and Brilliant, Fraxel, Halo, etc.  Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
