What is Pearl Fractional Laser Treatment?
Laser Resurfacing or Pearl Fractional Laser Resurfacing is an advanced, effective, safe and a fractional single treatment laser for skin resurfacing. It improves a variety of skin conditions caused due to aging and sun exposure. It’s a non-invasive and a clinically proven way to turn back the clock and look ever-green. It has a fast recovery time.
How does it Work?
As the name suggests this therapy offers a treatment that only affects a fraction of the skin. The laser pulses target and treat only the damaged cells. Simply put, it selectively removes damaged tissues without affecting the surrounding healthy cells.
A portion of the epidermis is smoothly removed and a natural protective dressing is formed on the surface of the skin. The Pearl Fractional laser replaces the top sun-damaged layer of the skin while the heat penetrates deep down activating the body’s natural processes for creating new collagen.
The new collagen plumps the skin from below and repairs photo damage and other skin conditions. After a week, the protective dressing gradually begins to peel off giving you vibrant and healthy looking skin, naturally.
Is it Painful? What does it feel like?
Since it utilizes controlled energy and does not affect the surrounding area, it makes the procedure more comfortable for patients. However, you may feel a series of brief pinches during the treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for Pearl Laser Treatment?
Anyone who has skin imperfections due to sun damage and aging or a pale to medium skin tone and wants to improve his/her complexion can benefit from this treatment. However, this treatment is not suited for patients with deep skin tones. Consult our Nurse Andrea to find out which treatment will be suitable for you.
Areas Suitable for Treatment
This laser resurfacing treatment can treat the entire face including the delicate and sensitive areas like around the eyes and the mouth. These areas show first signs of aging.
When Will I See the Results? When Can I Wear Make-Up?
A week later after the treatment you may begin to see some improvement in your skin as the superficial tissue peels off gradually. For best and noticeable results you will have to wait for 1 to 3 months. You can apply makeup at least 5 days after the treatment.
Can Pearl Fractional Laser Be Combined with Other Treatments?
Yes, it is compatible with treatments like Cutera laser and light procedures such as Laser Genesis, IPL and Titan Skin Tightening. Many patients undergo Pearl fractional in combination with other beauty treatments. Feel free to discuss a combination treatment with our expert.
