What is it?
The Pearl Fractional is an ablative laser to resurface and regenerate the deeper tissues. It is a non-invasive treatment using a microscopic laser beam that treats a fraction of the skin at a time. This technology has bridged the gap between ablative and non-ablative laser techniques used to treat aging and sun-damaged skin. It treats both the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. Pearl Fractional stimulates the body’s natural repair and remodeling processes, refining deeper lines (particularly around the mouth and eyes), and smoothing uneven skin texture, large pores and acne scarring. It also improves the overall complexion treating brown discoloration and fading sun damage.
Does it Hurt?
The Pearl Fractional has been described as feeling like a series of fast, hot pinches. Topical numbing is utilized and Nitronox (laughing gas) as a pain relief option is available for an additional charge. Your practitioner will discuss additional pain relief options at your consultation.
What is the Downtime?
Downtime is typically between 5-7 days. Most patients take a few days off work. Specific aftercare must be followed including applying an occlusive ointment to the skin for 4-5 days. Oxygenetix make up can be used within 72 hours afterwards if desired.
