What is the Pearl procedure?
The Pearl treatment combines the impact of re-surfacing lasers with the gentleness and safety of non-invasive procedures to treat aging and sun-damaged skin. Pearl reduces wrinkles, uneven texture and solar damage with fewer treatments and less overall recovery than other technologies to provide a healthy pearl-like glow.
How Does the Pearl treatment work?
During the procedure, the top layer of skin is treated with pulses of light in a pre-selected pattern. The laser simultaneously sends heat to the deeper layers of skin to provide longer-term benefits. A natural protective dressing forms on the skin to minimize downtime during the restorative process. On day 3 or 4, this natural dressing will peel or slough off, revealing new, healthy, vibrant skin underneath.
In a short time, patients will notice overall skin clarity, smoothness and softness. With prep, treatment and post treatment application, treatment is about 90 mins. with only 4-5 days of social downtime.
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 4-5 days.
When will I see results? How soon can I wear make-up after a Pearl treatment?
Results are noticeable by day 3 or 4 when the superficial tissue has peeled off, revealing fresh, bright, healthy skin underneath. Make-up may be applied at this time.
