There is only mild redness lasting 24 hours after a treatment with Clear + Brilliant and make up or tinted moisturizer can be applied next morning, so most patients don’t have to interrupt their schedule at all. One day after your procedure, skin might feel a bit like sandpaper but look perfectly normal. This sandpaper feel is actually dead skin cells preparing to slough away. The texture lasts an average of 3 – 5 days.
