Laser Resurfacing is an exciting technology that has brought dramatic changes in our ability to treat sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, acne scars, as well as increasing the tone and elasticity of the skin.
Cosmetic laser skin resurfacing is a method for diminishing the appearance of imperfections on the skin’s surface. During the laser skin resurfacing procedure a laser is used to dissolve the molecular bonds of the damaged skin cells layer by layer until a smoother, more uniform skin appearance is achieved.
What is the Pearl procedure?
The Pearl procedure combines the impact of resurfacing lasers with the gentleness and safety of non-invasive procedures to treat aging and sundamaged skin. Pearl reduces wrinkles, uneven texture and solar damage with fewer treatments and less overall recovery than other technologies to provide a healthy, pearl-like glow.
How does the Pearl treatment work?
During the procedure, the top layer of skin is treated with pulses of light in a pre-selected pattern. The laser simultaneously sends heat to the deeper layers of skin dressing forms on the skin to minimize downtime during the restorative process. On day 3 or 4, this natural dressing will peel or slough off, revealing new, healthy, vibrant skin underneath.
Pearl Fractional is a new, volumizing, fractional laser perfected for treating photo damaged skin in just one treatment. Pearl Fractional offers the best combination of patient experience and recovery time.
How Does the “fractional” Work?
The fractional laser exposes only a fraction of the skin to the laser beam in a pattern of tiny dots. With Pearl Fractional, the laser pulse places tiny holes in the skin. Columns of damaged tissue are selectively removed, leaving surrounding skin intact.
While getting rid of wrinkles is one way to make the most of laser skin resurfacing technologies, the treatment can be used for other purposes. Laser skin resurfacing offers other anti-aging and skin enhancing benefits.
It can be used to:
- Firm and tighten loose skin
- Reduce acne scars and superficial scars from injury
- Remove age spots
- Reduce signs of sun damage
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the nose and eyes
How soon will I see Results?
Many patients will see improvements after one week, maximum results are seen in three months.
