Most of us have more than one concern about the appearance of our skin, particularly if we have skin damage on top of superficial concerns. Laser treatments are one of the best ways to address appearance-related concerns for permanent results. At Zormeirer Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center located in Noblesville, IN, Shelbyville, IN, Danville, IL, Healdsburg, CA, and Ukiah, CA, one of our favored laser treatments is Pearl Fractional.
What Is Pearl Fractional?
Pearl Fractional is a laser treatment that is actually named after the results it gives patients after recovery – specifically, this laser system produces glowing, pearl-like skin for those who have moderate to severe skin concerns. The coveted result of this treatment is one of many reasons why the Pearl system is so sought after by patients. Another huge benefit of this treatment is the longevity of the results.
What Can This Laser Treatment Do?
The main purpose of this treatment is to correct moderate to severe damage to the skin, caused by scarring, the sun, or the natural aging process. For many patients, resolving these issues can be difficult with other methods, such as using over-the-counter or at-home products. However, treatments with the Pearl system can completely resurface and perfect your skin for an all-over even, smooth, and radiant glow.
How Does This Pearl Work?
Pearl is a fractional ablative laser, which essentially means that hundreds of scattered fractions of laser light will touch your skin at one time, which ensures that each microscopic area of your skin is being treated. This fractional laser is powerful enough to penetrate several layers of skin to kickstart your anti-aging resolution from the inside out.
An ablative laser is one that causes minor controlled energy to the skin surface for the specific purpose of inciting the body’s natural regenerative response. In particular, this means that your skin will work rapidly to heal your skin after your treatment by turning over new skin cells and producing more collagen, elastin, and fibrin.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
While many patients can achieve their appearance-related goals in as little as one appointment, others find that two appointments are necessary to address all concerns. This is particularly true for those who have severe concerns, such as deep and dynamic wrinkles, scarring, or pronounced sun damage.
Does This Treatment Hurt?
This treatment will be mildly uncomfortable because it is an ablative laser. Many patients compare the treatment to warm prickling, which is why a topical numbing cream is often applied before your treatment. We recommend patients with low pain tolerance take Tylenol about an hour before treatment.
Who Is This Treatment Right For?
This treatment is ideal for those who have fair to medium skin tones and who have moderate to severe skin damage, particularly scars, wrinkles, and sun damage. The best candidates are those who would like to quickly improve the appearance of their skin to achieve an all-over healthy glow.
