The Pearl helps patients reclaim their â€œglowâ€ by completely resurfacing the top layer of skin to reveal newer skin beneath it.
Pearl is used for the following skin conditions:
- Excessive Sun Damage

What exactly is the Pearl?*
The Pearl is a FDA-cleared resurfacing laser by Cutera with a 2790nm wavelength for the treatment of mild to severe tone and textural skin imperfections on the face and occasionally other areas of the body. It has been described by doctors as a more advanced, controlled, and safer version of the chemical peel.
How does the Pearl work?*
During treatment, pulses of light are delivered in a controlled fashion to the top layer of skin (epidermis). The damaged top layer is then gently removed while the laser simultaneously sends energy into the deeper layers of skin (dermis), thereby stimulating the production of new collagen for long-term benefits. Shortly after treatment, the body creates a natural dressing that forms over the skin to help protect and heal the resurfaced area. The protective dressing will peel and slough off over the period of about a week. Once peeling has complete, patients can enjoy clearer, smoother, and healthier skin.

The Pearl helps patients reclaim their â€œglowâ€ by completely resurfacing the top layer of skin to reveal newer skin beneath it.
How many treatments are recommended?*
The number of treatments needed varies depending on factors such as skin type, severity of skin imperfections, and patientsâ€™ unique desires. Prior to treatment, each patient will receive a thorough consultation and skin assessment in order to determine the best laser treatment plan to achieve beautiful results.
Who is a candidate for a Pearl Fractional treatment?*
Pearl Fractional is best for light to medium skin tones. It can be used anywhere on the face and some areas of the body for moderate to severe photo damage, wrinkles, and acne scarring. Pure Beauty offers complimentary consultations to help determine if youâ€™re a candidate for Pearl Fractional treatments.
How does a Pearl Fractional treatment feel?*
Most patients have compared Pearl Fractional to that of a series of fast, hot pinches. A combination of prescribed pain relief and a topical numbing agent helps to increase patient comfort during treatment.
Is there downtime associated with Pearl Fractional?*
Yes. Patients should allow for some â€œsocial downtime.â€ Skin will take on a sunburned look immediately following treatment and there may be temporary swelling. Patients will be sent home with a set of post-care instructions that consist of regular vinegar soaks and ointment application to help accelerate the healing process.
How does Pearl Fractional compare to other fractional laser treatments?*
Unlike any other fractional laser, the Pearl Fractional employs a unique YSGG 2790 nm wavelength that provides the best combination of safety, patient comfort, and recovery time.
