Pearl Fractional Skin Resurfacing

Resurface your skin in just one treatment with Pearl Fractional Skin Resurfacing in Mt. Pleasant, SC at Sheperd Integrative Dermatology.

Pearl Fractional lasers are used in laser skin resurfacing. Treatment with a fractional laser may improve skin elasticity and texture, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, melasma and other dyschromias (skin discolorations). Unlike other laser skin resurfacing, fractional lasers only target small areas, leaving surrounding areas untouched (hence the name). This can result in a faster, easier recovery.

What is Pearl Fractional?

Pearl Fractional is a new, fractional, single treatment laser designed to improve imperfections due to aging and sun damage. Pearl Fractional offers the best combination of safety, patient experience and recovery time. Patients also notice a smoother, brighter complexion overall.

The Pearl Fractional Procedure

During the procedure, the laser uses heat to create tiny holes deep in the skin. The process removes sun-damaged tissue and then stimulates the growth of healthy, new skin, full of fresh collagen. This plumps the skin from below, repairing photodamage and other skin imperfections.

What does “fractional” mean? How does the Pearl Fractional treatment work?

Fractional therapy describes a treatment that affects only a fraction or small percentage of the skin. With Pearl Fractional, laser pulses treat damaged cells deep in the skin. This fractional treatment selectively removes columns of tissue leaving surrounding skin intact. This treatment shortens healing time and stimulates the body’s own natural process for creating new collagen, plumping the skin from below and reversing photoaging and other imperfections.

How many treatments are recommended?

Who is a candidate for a Pearl Fractional treatment?

Patients with light-to-medium skin tones and skin imperfections due to aging and sun damage will benefit from a Pearl Fractional treatment.

What areas of the face can be treated?

Pearl Fractional can treat the entire face and is uniquely effective in the delicate periorbital (around the eyes) and perioral (around the mouth) areas. These areas often show the fi rst signs of aging and can be the most challenging to treat.

How does a Pearl Fractional treatment feel?

Most patients describe the treatment as a series of fast, hot pinches. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin prior to treatment to alleviate some discomfort. Practitioners may choose to augment topical creams with other medications based on patient need.

When will I see results? How soon can I wear make-up?

Many patients see improvement one week after treatment. Maximum results are visible in one to three months. Patients may apply make-up five days after treatment.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after a Pearl Fractional treatment?

After treatment, the skin looks sunburned and may be slightly swollen. Patients report little or no discomfort post treatment. During post care, patients apply ointment to the skin for four to fi ve days and should limit sun exposure and wear protective clothing.

Can Pearl Fractional be part of a combination therapy treatment?

Many patients have a Pearl Fractional treatment in combination with other cosmetic therapies. These include other Cutera laser and light procedures, such as Pearl, Laser Genesis and LimeLight. Discuss combination treatment options with your practitioner.

How does Pearl Fractional compare to other fractional laser treatments?

Pearl Fractional’s unique laser wavelength offers a safe but intense treatment to reverse the signs of aging. This combination gives patients dramatic results in a single treatment with approximately one week of recovery.
