Customized treatments to leave your skin glowing

Pearl Fractional

The Pearl laser treatment revolutionizes the treatment of skin texture, fine, medium and deep wrinkles of the face, neck, chest and back of hands. It is also effective in treating acne scars, sun damage and general skin rejuvenation.

 

The Pearl treatment treats the top layer of the skin to remove sun damage, texture and fine lines. The layer just below the epidermis of the skin receives heat to stimulate collagen growth and a skin tightening effect.

 

The Pearl Fractional treatment can be likened to aerating a lawn.

 

By treating just a fraction of the skin, the laser energy can be delivered much deeper into the dermis to initiate repair at those deeper levels with much less risk and downtime than non-fractional laser treatments.

 

With our ablative laser technology we can reveal the fresh, youthful skin that is just under the surface of your rough, uneven surfaces.

The Treatment

Pearl Fractional is a skin resurfacing therapy that exposes the skin to a laser beam in a pattern of tiny dots.  During the procedure, the laser pulses place tiny holes in the skin.  The process removes columns of damaged tissue and then stimulates the body’s own natural process for creating healthy new skin.  This thickens the skin at the deep collagen level and resurfaces the top layer of skin.  Patients notice an immediate improvement in their complexion, (texture, tone, discolouration) and photo-damaged skin, greatly reducing the signs of aging in as fast as 6 weeks after the first treatment.

We use a topical numbing cream and at times, local anesthesia prior to treatment for added comfort. With Pearl, there is a period of social downtime. Depending on the level of treatment you receive, you may expect between 7-10 days of social downtime typically. This means that you will be red with minor swelling and should avoid sun exposure. A post-treatment care product is applied to protect your new skin while it is healing.

What is “social” downtime?


Downtime is the time spent recovering from a procedure. With “social” downtime, you can continue your normal daily activities. However, you may not wish to attend important social events because your face will appear pink/red for 7-10 days.




When will I see results?


Results of smoother skin are apparent immediately after the treated layer of skin has peeled off, usually day 3-6. Brown spots are often gone completely at this stage. Full results are evident after 60-90 days.




How soon can I wear make-up after a Pearl treatment?


Typically make-up may be applied after 7 days.




How many treatments are recommended?


Some patients may require two to three treatments spaced approximately one month six weeks apart to achieve the desired results. Other patients may need only one treatment.




Can Pearl be part of a combination therapy treatment?


Yes, patients may choose to have a Pearl treatment combined with other procedures such as LimeLight, Genesis and mini face lift.




Who is a candidate for a Pearl treatment?


Patients with light to medium skin tones and mild to moderate sun damage. Patients looking for permanent reduction or elimination of fine, medium, deep wrinkles of the face, neck, chest and back of hands.
