With age not only comes wisdom, but also unwanted skin imperfections due to years of sun damage and the inevitable effects of natural aging. Unlike any other fractional laser available, Pearl Fractional by Cutera utilizes a unique wavelength that makes it the gold standard for the correction of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and acne scarring. Patients could experience dramatic improvement in their skin’s texture, resulting in a more attractive and youthful appearance*
Pearl fractional treats the following skin conditions:
- Deeper Wrinkles
- Acne Scarring / Pitting
- Mild to Severe Crepiness
- Increased Laxity
- Textural Imperfections
- Vertical Lip Lines
What is the Pearl Fractional Treatment?*
Pearl Fractional is a minimally invasive fractional laser that safely emits controlled energy to target existing signs of aging and help preserve youthful skin by stimulating the production of new collagen.
How does the Pearl Fractional treatment work?*
The Pearl Fractional utilizes what is called “fractional therapy.” This simply means that it exposes only a fraction of the skin to the laser in a pattern of small dots. More specifically, it works by making a matrix of tiny holes in the epidermis (top layer of skin) and penetrating deep into the dermis (underlying tissue). During this process, columns of damaged tissue are targeted while keeping surrounding tissue intact, allowing for quicker recovery. Following treatment, the body immediately sets in to “healing mode,” in which new collagen and healthy skin cells are born. The end result is a rejuvenated and more youthful complexion.
How many treatments are recommended?*
The number of treatments needed varies depending on factors such as skin type, severity of skin imperfections, and patient’ 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 you’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 “social downtime.” 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.
