What is Clear + Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant is a skin rejuvenating treatment that uses fractionated laser technology with half the strength of Fraxel and four times the anti-ageing results of IPL. It is a great choice for rejuvenating your skin, helping to slow or prevent early signs of ageing and maintain radiant skin. About Face are proud to be the first in New Zealand to bring you Clear + Brilliant!
How will it improve my skin?
Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser that refreshes your skin from the inside out. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue.
The results of treatment are both immediate and progressive. A few days after the treatment, your skin will start to feel softer and look brighter, with improved tone, texture and radiance. You can expect to see naturally radiant and glowing skin, renewed, ultra-soft and smoother texture and skin that looks clear and brilliant!
Who does it suit?
Clear + Brilliant is perfect if you are under 40 and noticing the first signs of ageing. Clear + Brilliant erases fine lines and wrinkles and ageing around eyes, reduces pore size and acne scarring, evens out skin colour (including pigmentation and sun damage), promotes fresh, dewy skin to delay ageing and is safe and effective on all skin colours. It’s the ultimate pre-wedding treatment for brides!
Clear + Brilliant procedures may be used alongside most other cosmetic procedures like fillers, Thermage and Botox. For best results we will discuss your past procedures and any future procedures you may be considering, as well as your current expectations.
What happens during treatment?
Most clients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. We apply a topical anaesthetic ointment before the procedure to minimise the discomfort you may experience. We will also use a cooling gel or cooling packs after the procedure to minimise any residual heat sensation.
How many treatments do I need and how often?
We tailor the number of treatments to your concerns and skincare desires. An effective treatment plan usually includes four Clear + Brilliant treatments over about four months.
What will my skin look like immediately afterwards?
You may experience some redness and subtle inflammation right after the treatment, but these generally resolve within a few hours. Ultimately, Clear + Brilliant treatments are very gentle and are specifically designed to minimise the downtime and side effects of typical laser treatment.
How long will it last?
We recommend a “top up” treatment every one to two years.

Amber Peebles blogs about her experience with Clear + Brilliant
Every now and then I get an amazing opportunity to be a beauty test dummy for my blog and this time I was keen to see if one could really wind back the beauty clock.
I had started noticing my skin was getting a little dull, the sun damage I’d been accumulating over the years was creeping up and I was having to wear more makeup because of it. It actually took a while for me to really notice I was losing that youthful glow, oh the horror! The sneaky buggar was trying to slip out the back door so I was keen to grab it by the back legs and drag it back in.
I’d seen a couple of friends that had been into About Face with stunning results, so, much like the brunette emoji with both hands in the air, it was a fast YES when I got the chance to give their Clear + Brilliant treatment ago.
Clear + Brilliant includes four treatments across four months using a laser that rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. I was so impressed by the third session that the fourth was just icing on the cake. The best thing about Clear+Brilliant for me is that it treats your entire face instead of other options that just spot treat areas with fillers. This actually improves the quality of your skin by activating the skin to repair itself. I love that. Although if you have had Botox/fillers etc not to worry they can also be used in conjunction with each other. There is a bit of down time with each session but only a day or possibly two of being rather pink before just looking like you had a tan, which was actually rather nice. Click to read the full blog
Anna Reeve tells us about her experience with Clear + Brilliant
I heard about Clear + Brilliant when I worked in the Beauty team at Pead PR when we were working with About Face. I was absolutely floored with the results I saw and instantly wanted to try it, unfortunately I was pregnant so the timing wasn't right. Fast forward three years and I have just completed a series of 3 treatments and I am thrilled with the results!
I’m about to turn 30 and I knew Clear + Brilliant was a great step to take if you want to prevent the ageing process, and those early signs are ones that I had seen slowly creep onto my face in the last year or so. My pores were getting larger, my skin felt thinner under my eyes and fine lines had appeared around my eyes and on my forehead. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to be completely wrinkle free forever, it’s a perfectly normal and healthy development, but I’ll be happy if it took a little bit longer for them to fully set up camp on my face and I wanted to get rid of frustrating pigmentation that I have always struggled with.
Three treatments later and I have been so happy with my results this far, my pigmentation has been greatly reduced, my skin is so soft and smooth, I feel like it has some oomph back to it, it feels thicker, stronger and fine lines have started to smooth out. My favourite part about this treatment though, is that the results keep coming, it’s definitely something that works slowly over time as your skin is replaced by new healthier skin in the areas treated by the Clear + Brilliant machine. Three months on from my last treatment and I’m getting more comments now on my skin and how “radiant” it looks than when I first started the course. After 2 years with little sleep due to two very rambunctious twin boys I’m happy anyone thinks my skin is looking good let alone radiant!
Megan from 'She Said Yes' tries Clear + Brilliant
Popular wedding and beauty blogger, Megan Hutchison from 'She Said Yes', recently completed the ultimate Wedding Prep for Brides to Be - a course of four Clear + Brilliant treatments at About Face.
In her intro to the blog Megan says "While no longer a bride-to-be, I spend enough time in front of a camera to notice every wrinkle, sunspot or area of dryness. Always taking photos for social media and this website, I can’t avoid noticing my skin is ageing, and more frequently looking dull and dehydrated. At 27, I thought I was already doing everything I could about it – occasional facials, good quality skincare, drinking enough water – you know the drill. Recently though, About Face invited me to level up my regime, and try the Clear + Brilliant® programme – a series of four fractional laser treatments . Incase you hadn’t heard, Clear + Brilliant just won NZ’s Best Face Treatment at the recent NZ Best in Beauty Awards – so I felt pretty confident I was in good hands."

Siobhan Marshall talks about her experience with Clear + Brilliant
After filming The Blue Rose I had a course of three Clear + Brilliant laser treatments and it was the best treatment ever.
It’s a bit like Fraxel for skin rejuvenation but not as intense.
It totally transformed my skin into being flawless and radiant.
I was amazed how quickly I got results.
Within two or three months the fine lines that had been starting to show around my eyes vanished and my skin was restored to glowing health and looking amazing.
