Why Do Movie Stars Use Clear & Brilliant To Look Youthful?
It’s Hollywood’s little secret. Celebrities are naturally looking younger with laser treatments. One “turn to” laser treatment is Clear and Brilliant. The radiant skin that you see on Sandra Bullock (age 55) Cate Blanchett (age 50), and Anne Hathaway (age 37) in Ocean’s 8 does not come naturally and is not just a result of professional stage makeup. There is beautiful and refined skin under all that professional movie face paint.
How do these stars maintain such radiant and perfectly pore free skin? Liz Ritter of New Beauty magazine reports that many movie stars, while in production, write regular treatments with lasers into their film contracts and many stars love the treatment for Red Carpet preparation. Laser treatments are not just for the Hollywood elite. Busy parents and professionals are also saying they love Clear and Brilliant. But, you too can give yourself this very affordable and comfortable treatment and feel like a star with a beautiful and refined complexion. Clear and Brilliant laser treatments fit almost every budget. And as an added benefit, you will not miss a day of work or social activity. The downtime is zero to minimal. Does it get any better? It’s very affordable and you can still go to work right after the treatment.
Ritter tells us that makeup artist, Kimara Ahnert, whose New York clients include stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Catherine Zeta-Jones, reveals that the flawless faces that are her trademark are a product of professional skincare and resurfacing, not foundation. Ahnert says, “Most people think fullness and vitality are only available to those who can afford injectables, but that is not the case. Many of my clients and celebrities who walk the red carpet make good skin care products and skin care treatments part of their regular routines.” Brightness is important to her and her celebrity clients and this brightness can be achieved with a series of Clear and Brilliant treatments.
Ritter says the most requested treatment in movie and TV contracts is Clear and Brilliant. Beverly Hills dermatologist Rhonda Rand, MD, in an interview with Ritter, says “It makes skin glow and there’s no downtime. It’s everyone’s favorite!”

We are constantly adding new treatments and technologies to help you reach your goal of correction and maintenance of beautiful and healthy skin. We integrate new and old techniques and technologies to produce the best results with predictable downtime and visible improvements for every patient on an individual basis, designing what will work best for you.
What Do Resurfacing Lasers Do?
Fractional lasers entered the marketplace in 2005 and Lasair was there at the beginning with Fraxel. Since that time, every surface rejuvenating technology has been fractionated to decrease the downtime of resurfacing. Resurfacing is the process of removing damaged cells from the surface of the skin. This process promotes the growth of new skin cells and removes the dry dead cells on the surface of the skin, the cells that we “see” on the surface of the skin, the cells that reflect light and color. These “reds and browns” of environmental aging are cleared and pave the way for young and radiant new skin cells. The dermis is plumped and thickened by the growth of new collagen. The results create fresh, clear, refined skin on the surface, visible to the eye.
Fractional resurfacing means that we are removing only a “fraction” or percentage of the skin in pixels, similar to photoshopping your skin in dots. The advantage of these technologies is that the downtime is greatly reduced. There are differences among these resurfacing tools, and we have every variety of resurfacing technologies at Lasair. We help you choose the treatment that works for your budget and your professional and social life.
What about my Neck and Chest?
Danielle Fontana of New Beauty magazine reports that Drew Barrymore reminds us on Instagram to rejuvenate from the chest up. Just when we thought we couldn’t love her more, Barrymore admits that even celebrities aren’t pros at caring for their skin. “I love my skin care routines, but I forget anything below the chin, she says of the skin sin we’re all guilty of,” says Fontana.
What is the Best way to maintain Beautiful Skin?
Of course, these skin-perfecting efforts naturally extend into plastic surgeon and dermatologist offices. The Beverly Hills, California, offices of plastic surgeons Andrew Ordon, MD, and Ritu Chopra, MD, treat many A-list celebs with hydrating facials and brightening peels that help address, fine lines, sun damage and give skin the ultimate glow. “Not surprisingly, stars also love to stay on top of Botox Cosmetic, fillers and Thermage, which helps stimulate collagen and tighten the skin,“ says Ritter.
The doctors to the stars use the same three techniques that we at Lasair recommend to our Denver patients every day: resurface, tighten, and volumize. We recommend that patients start with the technique most needed or most doable; sometimes you just can’t risk downtime or side effects. We help you plan your strategy and treatment schedule at Lasair. We want to help prepare you for your special events. Weddings, graduations, anniversaries and birthdays are memorable events and you want to look your best. Start with the technique appropriate for the time of year or for your schedule and your special event. In Colorado, winter is the ideal time for resurfacing because most of us do not spend a lot of time outdoors. Those that ski, snowmobile, and skate know to wear an extra layer of sunblock and the skiers are mostly covered with goggles and gators and often a face mask to resist the cold and the damaging rays of the sun. Winter is the time to remove the damage of summer. Whether you use Clear and Brilliant, Fraxel, Sublative, fractional CO2 (CO2RE), or keep it simple and affordable with medical peels and dermaplaning, resurfacing procedures are an important part of your overall skin health. At Lasair, we will assist you in customizing and planning your rejuvenating treatments for every day dermal health or for your special, Red Carpet, event.
Clear and Brilliant laser is loved by all of our patients, men and women of all ages, because after a series of three to five treatments they have bright glowing skin, even pigment and fewer fine lines. Love the way your skin feels and looks with little to no downtime.
When should I start my Clear and Brilliant treatments in Denver?
Here we are in 2020, but 1997 doesn’t seem so long ago. Can you believe we got here so soon? It is like the new decade just popped up in front of us. A new decade brings new commitments, ideas and aspirations.If you haven’t committed to good skin health, it may be time. My patients that started their maintenance and prevention with me 20 years ago look amazing in their 50’s, just like Cate, Sandra and Drew. Technology has evolved and just keeps getting better. What are you doing for you this decade? Is health in your plans? What about the health of your skin? You can reflect your inner health and outer beauty by taking exceptional care of your skin. That is what we help you accomplish at Lasair.
