The FDA approved Pearl treatment combines the impact of skin resurfacing lasers with the gentleness and safety of non-invasive procedures to treat aging and sun damaged skin. Pearl reduces wrinkles, uneven texture and solar damage with fewer treatments and less overall recovery than other leading technologies in order to provide a healthy, pearl-like glow to the surface of the skin.
During the treatment the top layer of skin is targeted by pulses of light in a pre-selected pattern customized to your explicit skin needs. The laser sends heat to the deeper layers of skin to provide longer-term benefits. A natural protective dressing forms on the skin to minimize downtime during the restorative process. Three or four days after treatment the natural dressing will peel or slough off, revealing new healthy, vibrant skin underneath. Until this healing process has completed, it is recommended that you do not apply cosmetics. The results our clients typically experience are outstanding.
The sensation from the Pearl treatment feels like a series of abrupt pinches. On a scale of one to ten, with ten indicating a high degree of pain and one indicating no pain whatsoever, most of our clients report a rating of two or three on this scale.
A short time after treatment patients will notice overall skin clarity, smoothness and softness have improved from just a fifteen minute treatment. from a 15 minute treatment with only three to four days of “social” downtime. Downtime is the time spent recovering from a procedure. With “social” downtime, you can continue your normal daily activities. However, you may not wish to attend important social event because your face will appear red/pink or sunburned for three to four days. Since application of sunscreen is disallowed until healing is complete it is recommended that our clients avoid outdoor activities or wear protective clothing if exposure to the sun is unavoidable.
Some patients may require two treatments spaced approximately one month apart to achieve the desired results. Other patients may need only one treatment to achieve desired results. The Pearl treatment may be used in conjunction with Laser Genesis, Titan as well as filler or Botox.
