The Pearl laser procedure can help renew your skin’s surface — in one or two treatments — minimizing:
Pearl laser treatment may be right for you if you have:
During Pearl laser treatment, the top layer of skin is treated with pulses of light and the deeper layers of skin are heated. You will feel a mild pinching sensation.
A natural “dressing” immediately forms on the skin.
Treatments take about 15 minutes.
Pearl Fractional is a deep fractional laser used to treat moderate to severe sun damaged or aging skin on the entire face.
Ideal candidates for Pearl Fractional treatment are those with light to medium skin tones and skin imperfections due to:
Pearl Fractional laser treatment stimulates your body’s own collagen-producing process to plump the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and other imperfections.
During treatment, you will feel fast, hot pinches as the laser pulses place tiny holes in the skin and selectively remove columns of damaged tissue. The treatment stimulates your body's natural process for creating new collagen, plumping the skin from below to reverse the appearance of skin imperfections, which may shorten healing time.
A topical anesthetic cream will be applied prior to treatment to alleviate most of the discomfort.
