“Your Journey to Clearer, Brighter Skin.”

Healthy Skin,
is Beautiful Skin.



The innovative Clear + Brilliant® laser facial uses an erbium fiber-optic system to deliver thousands of micro-thermal pixels to gently resurface and rejuvenate the skin. This fractional approach renews between 5%-20% of the treatment area by removing small portions of the skin and stimulating new collagen formation during the healing process.

The Clear + Brilliant® laser facial is suitable for those seeking effective results without significant downtime (1 to 2 days). It is customizable, allowing for targeted improvement of various skin concerns such as fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven texture, and mild sun damage. Overall, Clear + Brilliant® is a gentle and efficient way to achieve a rejuvenated and refreshed complexion.

OUR APPROACH to Clear + Brilliant®

Clear + Brilliant® is a staff favourite! As an introductory procedure, C+B is very popular with our 25-45 year old staff. We typically suggest doing this treatment with provided topical numbing cream for an easier experience 30-60 minutes before the procedure. With minimal downtime and satisfying results, it’s easy to be in and out of our office quickly and back to a busy life. C+B is best booked in a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart.


C+B is not suitable for very dark or tanned skins, please talk to us about other options.


It is always our goal to provide excellent value for this service with highly skilled providers at industry average pricing. Cost for Clear + Brilliant® starts at $425 per session.

For more serious skin concerns, there may be better options required to achieve optimal results. Arbutus Laser Centre offers a selection of laser treatments, which expands our ability to cater to individual preferences. Different types of laser and skin renewal treatments have slightly different benefits, and our team will consult you on the best treatments for your specific skin needs.


If you are already a C+B lover, this procedure may be booked directly with our front desk with a short call back from your technician to ensure suitability and preparation. If you are not sure which procedure is best for you, please book to see one of our experts for a detailed and informative consultation.
