Pearl Fractional is fractional laser treatment designed to improve imperfections in the skin due to aging and sun damage. Fractional therapy means only a fraction or small percentage of the skin is affected, removing damaged tissue, and leaving the surrounding skin intact. This allows for a faster healing time. Pearl Fractional is a safe and effective laser treatment that gives you an overall smoother and brighter complexion.
The Pearl Fractional laser uses heat to create tiny holes deep in the skin. By doing this, sun-damaged tissue is eliminated and collagen growth is stimulated. Healthy, renewed skin is brought forward, erasing skin imperfections and repairing photodamage.
Most patients will see significant improvement after just one treatment. Pearl Fractional can be safely performed most skin types. Most patients describe the treatment as a series of fast, hot pinches. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin prior to treatment to alleviate some discomfort.
What is the downtime with Pearl Fractional?
After the Pearl Fractional treatment, the skin looks sunburned and may be slightly swollen. Patients may apply make-up five days after treatment. You can expect to see improvement in one week. Final results are visible in one to three months.
What are the risks of Pearl Fractional?
The key to any treatment is to follow the proper post care instructions given to you by your medical professional. However, as with any laser treatment there are some possible risks and side effects. These include redness, swelling, post inflammatory hyper pigmentation, and poor healing possibly resulting in disruptions of the skin tissue i.e.: scars and burns.
