Clear + Brilliant Touch is Solta Medical’s next-generation laser, using both the original 1440nm and Perméa 1927nm wavelengths. This device provides a more versatile and efficient treatment for preventing the signs of aging, maintaining radiant skin, and improving the overall appearance of your skin.

About Face Skin Care has an extensive variety of laser devices that allows us to customize all patients’ treatments to ensure optimal outcomes with minimal downtime. We have the experience and expertise to create personalized treatment plans to help you achieve your beauty goals and keep you looking and feeling your absolute best.


The Clear + Brilliant laser is a fractional treatment that creates microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, replacing damaged skin with new, healthy-looking tissue. While the original 1440 nm wavelength is useful in addressing fine lines and dull skin tone, the Permea 1927 nm wavelength is effective in treating pigmentation issues, creating a comprehensive treatment in a single platform.

Clear + Brilliant Touch treatments are safe to treat all ages and skin types, and ideal for both men and women who are looking to address the early signs of aging or wish to maintain the look of their skin. You will likely need a series of these laser treatments to achieve maximum results, which our patients typically see after 4 to 6 treatments.


In clinical studies, Clear + Brilliant Touch treatments produced the following benefits:

  • Reduction in early aging symptoms like fine lines
  • Reduction in pore size to create a smoother skin surface
  • More consistent skin texture and tone
  • Improved clarity, vibrancy, and complexion radiancy
  • Improved appearance of pigment, melasma, and spots
  • Increased collagen production
  • Increased skin permeability


Most patients describe a sensation of heat during the treatment at our skin care clinic. We will apply a topical numbing cream prior to treatment to minimize discomfort. The Clear + Brilliant Touch device seamlessly switches between the original Clear + Brilliant and Perméa modes for a quicker, more efficient procedure and more comprehensive results than using just one of the devices.


You will notice some immediate results, but your skin’s appearance will also continue to improve over time. A few days after the treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter, and show a more even tone. Your skin will continue to improve in the weeks and months following, and touch-up treatments will increase your improvement over time.


The downtime is very minimal with only minor redness and inflammation experienced immediately after treatment and generally subsiding within a few hours. Most patients return to regular activities immediately following their treatment session.

Q: Is Clear + Brilliant Touch Safe?

A: Yes! The FDA approved the Clear + Brilliant laser device in 2011 as a gentle laser treatment for skin rejuvenation, and the Touch technique is simply an expansion on its possibilities. Our treatment providers have extensive experience using this laser and will use their expertise to customize your treatment, so it is as safe and effective as possible.

Q: How Many Treatments Will I Need?

A: Most patients see the best results after 4-6 treatment sessions. Once those results are evident, you may choose touch-up procedures every few months to help you maintain your improvement indefinitely.

Q: How Long Do Results Last?

A: The results of Clear + Brilliant Touch treatments are both immediate and progressive, so some improvement will appear soon after your treatment, but more will appear in the coming weeks. A few days after your treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter, and show a more even tone. Once you have completed your treatment plan, you should enjoy your improvements for many months. Continuing to come to our Philadelphia office for regular sessions will allow you to maintain your refreshed look indefinitely.

Please note that sun protection is essential for the first few weeks after treament to prevent possible damage to the treated areas.
