Pearl Fractional™ is a new fractional laser perfected for treating photo-damaged skin in just one treatment. Patients see improvement in sun damage, tone, texture and brown spots, and have a noticeably smoother, brighter complexion.
The Pearl Fractional™ laser pulses place tiny holes in the skin, removing selected columns of damaged tissue, while the surrounding skin is left intact. The treatment shortens healing time and stimulates surrounding tissues to create new collagen, volumize the skin from below and reverse photo aging and other imperfections.
Most patients will see significant improvement after just one treatment. The Pearl Fractional™ is used on patients with light-to-medium skin tones. Because it can be used on the entire face, it is uniquely effective in treating around the eyes and mouth. These areas often show the first signs of aging and can be the most challenging to treat.
Most patients describe the treatment as a series of fast, hot pinches. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin one hour before treatment and oral medication is administered, to alleviate most discomfort.
After treatment, the skin looks sunburned and slightly swollen. There is little-to-no post-treatment discomfort. An aftercare kit will be provided to cleanse and protect the skin for four to five days. After treatment many patients see improvement in one week, with maximum results visible in one to three months.
Pearl Fractional™ can be combined with other Cutera laser and light treatments such as Limelight, the Pearl™ and Laser Genesis. These combination treatment options will be discussed with the patient.
Unlike other fractional laser treatments, the Pear Fractional’s™ unique laser wavelength offers a safe and effective treatment to reverse the signs of aging. This combination gives patients dramatic results in a single treatment with a quick, one-week recovery period.
