Pigmentation Treatment Options

YES!  Clear & Brilliant has several treatment options, a deeper and a shallower wavelength.  The shallower wavelength addresses textural issues like pores, lines, and wrinkles while the deeper wavelength can address pigmentation issues when it is used appropriately and paired with the correct products.  I like to use a lightening agent as well as a vitamin C serum.  Don't forget that sunscreen is very important when we are trying to improve pigmentation issues!

Yes, the Clear and Brilliant in the 1927 wavelength can help. This coupled with SPF and also bleaching creams such as HQ can repair skin and reduce PIH - factor 3-4 sessions over 2-3 months. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

Clear and brilliant provides two different handpieces that address different concerns in regards to burns. The original handpiece utilizes 1440 nm wavelength to address overall tone and texture by creating micro injuries on the skin, inducing a cell turnover. The permea handpiece utilizes 1927 nm wavelength. Coupled with skin lightening agents, permea is a great tool to address pigmentation issues.

Hope this helps!
