What Is Pearl Fractional Treatment?

This is a new procedure that significantly reverses the effects of ageing, especially around the eyes and mouth, which are usually the most challenging to treat. It is a fractional laser meaning it affects a small fraction of the skin. It does this by pulsing the laser so it makes tiny holes in the skin. The damaged tissue is then selectively removed leaving smoother younger looking skin. The treatment stimulates the body’s own natural process for creating collagen and plumps up the skin from below.

This procedure is carried out by our senior laser specialist who controls the deep energy to obtain maximum results but allowing for a comfortable patient experience. The tiny holes enable safe treatment with rapid recovery and major improvements are seen after just one session. A perfect alternative for those who do not want surgical intervention but require high quality results for ageing skin.

 

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

 

Please note after the procedure the skin will look sunburned and may even be slightly swollen. Patients report little or no discomfort post-treatment. However up to 5 or 6 days of downtime is needed. During post-care, patients apply only ointment to the skin for four to five days and should limit sun exposure and wear protective clothing. Makeup can be only be applied 5 days after the procedure.
