Q. What is the Pearl Fractional treatment?
A. Pearl Fractional is a new volumizing fractional laser perfected for addressing photo-aging in just one treatment. Pearl Fractional offers the best combination of patient experience and recovery time. Patients will see improvements in photo-damage, tone, and texture as well as a noticeably smoother, brighter complexion!
Q. What does “fractional” mean? How does the Pearl Fractional treatment work?
A. Fractional therapy describes a treatment that affects only a fraction or small percentage of the skin. With Pearl Fractional, laser pulses place tiny holes deep in the skin. Columns of damaged tissue are selectively removed, leaving the surrounding skin intact.
The treatment shortens healing time and stimulates the body’s own natural process for creating new collagen, plumping the skin from below and reversing photo-aging and other imperfections.
Q. What is the difference between the Pearl and Pearl Fractional Laser?
A. The Pearl ablative is for superficial to medium depth texture irregularities such as minor scarring, sun damage, lines, brown spots, melasma. The Pearl Fractional is for deeper irregularities, such as moderate to severe sun damage, wrinkles, and scarring.
Q. How many treatments are recommended?
A. Most patients should see significant improvement after just one treatment. One to two treatments can take up to 10 years off the face.
Q. Who is a candidate for a Pearl Fractional treatment?
A. Patients with light-to-medium skin tones and skin imperfections due to aging and sun damage will benefit from a Pearl Fractional treatment.
Q. What areas of the face can be treated?
A. Pearl Fractional can treat the entire face and is uniquely effective in the delicate periorbital (around the eyes) and perioral (around the mouth) areas. These areas often show the first signs of aging and can be the most challenging to treat.
Q. How does a Pearl Fractional treatment feel?
A. Most patients describe the treatment as a series of quick, hot pinches. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin prior to treatment to alleviate some discomfort. Practitioners may choose to augment topical creams with other medications based on patient need.
Q. When will I see results? How soon can I wear make-up?
A. Many patients see improvement one week after treatment. Maximum results are visible within three months. Patients may apply make-up five days after treatment.
Q. Are there any restrictions on my activity after a Pearl Fractional treatment?
A. After treatment, the skin looks sunburned and may be slightly swollen. Patients report little or no discomfort post treatment. During post care, patients apply ointment to the skin for four to five days and should limit sun exposure.
Q. How does Pearl Fractional compare to other fractional laser treatments?
A. Pearl Fractional’s unique laser wavelength offers a safe but intense treatment to reverse the signs of aging. This combination gives patients dramatic results in a single treatment with approximately one week of recovery. It takes 5-6 treatments with other fractional devices out there, compared to one to two of the Pearl. There is no doubt that this is the single most effective treatment with only a week of social downtime, and immense safety.
