Renew your skin’s surfaces and minimise wrinkles, uneven texture and discolouration in only 1 or 2 treatments.
Visibile renewed skin. (deeper pigment, deeper texture, pores, fine lines, sun damage).
1-2 treatments recommended 6-12 weeks apart.
(deep lines, acne scarring, severe sun damage, irregularities, 10 years younger). Usually one treatment every 2-5 years.
The Pearl procedure combines the impact of resurfacing 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.
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 minimise downtime during the restorative process. On day 4 or 5, this natural dressing will peel or slough off, revealing new, vibrant, healthy skin underneath.
Downtime is the time spent recovering from a procedure. With “social” downtime, you can continue your normal activities. However, you may not wish to attend important social events because your face will appear pink/red for 3 – 4 days.
The Pearl treatment feels like a series of brief pinches. On a scale of 1 – 10, with 10 representing pain, most patients report the treatment feeling like a 2 or 3.
Results are noticeable by day 3 or 4 when the superficial tissue has peeled off, revealing fresh, bright, skin underneath. Make-up may not be applied at this time.
After treatment, the skin will look and feel mildly sunburned. You will apply ointment on the skin for 3 – 4 days. Since you cannot wear sunscreen during this time, you will need to wear protective clothing and limit sun exposure for a few days after treatment.
Some patients may require 2 treatments spaced approximately 6-12 weeks apart to achieve the desired results. Other patients may need only one treatment.
Yes, patients may choose to have a Pearl treatment combined with other Cutera procedures such as Laser Genesis and/or Titan, as well as fillers or Botox®. Discuss your combination therapies with us.
Pearl offers the most effective treatment to address fine lines, uneven texture and discolouration without wound care and the lengthy downtime required with certain Erbium and CO² laser procedures.
Compared to today’s fractionated technologies, Pearl offers noticeable results in just 1 treatment versus 4 – 6 fractionated treatments.
Patients with light to medium skin tones and mild to moderate sun damage are the ideal candidates.
