Do you want dramatic results without surgery? Why not try a Pearl Fusion!
By combining both Pearl Resurfacing and Pearl Fractional, this advanced technology offers a great solution for those stubborn pores, photo-ageing, wrinkles, scarring and skin laxity. By treating the outer most surface and deeper layers of the skin simultaneously, the results far exceed any other resurfacing treatment. Pearl Fusion refreshes the surface of the skin, and helps to renew the dermis.
This treatment leaves you with a more youthful and glowing appearance. Another added benefit of this treatment is that more skin types can be treated safely.
How does Pearl Fusion work?
Pearl resurfacing is a laser that passes through the surface of the skin without instantly ablating it. The epidermal layer then acts as a natural wound dressing until the skin below is fully healed. The outer layer of the skin will then shed over the next 24-36 hours and result in full epidermal renewal.
Pearl Fractional is an ablative fractionated laser that removes small portions of the skin while keeping the surrounding tissue fully intact. These micro holes then fill up with brand new epithelial cells, helping to create volume and collagen remodelling from the deeper layers of the skin. This treatment is much safer then non-fractionated ablative lasers because rather than removing the entire surface of the skin, it only removes small fractions of it resulting in decreased risk of infection and scarring.
What is the downtime with a procedure like Pearl Fusion?
The downtime is approximately 10 days depending on lifestyle, genetics, and overall health. You will likely have swelling; there will be some skin discolouration and a rough texture followed by a shedding of the surface skin. Darker skin types may need special post care instructions as a preventative measure.
Are there any risks to Pearl Fusion?
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 residual redness, excessive swelling, post inflammatory hyper pigmentation, and poor healing possibly resulting in disruptions of the skin tissue i.e.: scars and burns.
