Clear + Brilliant Perméa is the latest in Solta Medical’s Clear + Brilliant® technology utilizing a low-power 1927nm non-invasive fractional laser for rejuvenation and pigmentation. The Clear + Brilliant Perméa is designed to address early signs of aging and help to prevent them. It is particularly adept at treating stubborn conditions like melasma, especially for Asian patients where melasma is a relatively common concern. For more dramatic results, the Clear + Brilliant Touch may be right for you, which combines the benefits of Clear + Brilliant with Clear + Brilliant Perméa.

The board-certified physicians at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York have an extensive range of laser devices that allow us to customize all our patients’ treatments to ensure an optimal outcome.

Our team would be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns and create a personalized treatment plan to keep you looking and feeling your absolute best.


The Clear + Brilliant Perméa laser uses fractionated laser technology to create microscopic treatment zones, where damaged skin is replaced with a more youthful dermal layer. The result is a healthy glow and a visible reduction in aging signs. With regular treatment sessions, the Clear + Brilliant Perméa laser will help you maintain a brighter, more radiant complexion.

Clear + Brilliant Perméa can be safely used to rejuvenate all skin types and is ideal for both men and women looking to address the early signs of aging or maintain the look of their skin. A series of laser treatments are needed and most of our patients see visible improvement within 4-6 sessions.

In clinical studies, Clear + Brilliant treatments were shown to produce the following benefits:

  • More consistent skin texture and tone
  • Reduction in early aging symptoms like fine lines
  • Reduction in pore size to create a smoother surface to the skin
  • Improved clarity, vibrancy and radiance of the complexion

When Will I See Results?

The results of the treatment are both immediate and progressive. A few days after the treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter, and show a more even tone.


Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. You may choose to have a topical anesthetic applied prior to treatment in order to minimize any discomfort. The downtime is very minimal with only minor redness and inflammation experienced immediately after treatment and generally subsiding within a few hours.
