What is the Cutera® Pearl® Fractional Laser?
The Pearl® Fractional laser is a new, volumizing fractional laser from Cutera®. It is designed for treating photodamaged skin in just one treatment. Pearl® Fractional offers the best combination of patient experience and recovery time. In just one treatment, patients can achieve improvements in brown spots, sun damage, tone, and texture and will have a noticeably smoother and brighter complexion.
How Does the Pearl® Fractional Laser Work?
The Pearl® Fractional laser uses fractional technology to expose only a fraction of the skin to laser energy in a pattern of tiny dots. This laser treatment creates tiny holes in the skin, selectively removing columns of damaged tissue and leaving surrounding skin intact. The body’s natural process then creates new collagen, resulting in cosmetic benefits. The tiny holes also ensure a safe treatment and a quick recovery. The deep treatment provides results in a single session, while the controlled energy maximizes results with greater patient comfort.
Who Is a Candidate for Cutera® Pearl® Fractional?
Patients with light to medium skin tones and skin imperfections due to aging and sun damage will benefit from a Pearl® Fractional treatment.
What is a Cutera® Pearl® Fractional Treatment Like?
To begin treatment, we’ll apply a topical numbing cream to the skin that will help alleviate any discomfort. As treatment begins, we’ll use a handheld device to deliver laser energy to the desired treatment areas. The laser energy is delivered in quick bursts, which many patients describe as a series of fast, hot pinches. However, most patients find the treatment well-tolerable with the topical numbing cream.
Is There Any Downtime After Cutera® Pearl® Fractional Laser Treatments?
After treatment, the skin looks sunburned and may be slightly swollen. For this reason, patients will need to limit sun exposure and take care to keep the skin moisturized in the days following treatment. However, patients should have no issue returning to work and other activities immediately following their treatment. Most of these side effects resolve within one week, after which point patients can apply makeup and resume their usual skincare routines.
What Results Can I Expect from the Cutera® Pearl® Fractional Laser?
Patients require only a single treatment for significant improvement in photodamage and dermal imperfections. Most patients begin to notice improvements within one week of treatment. These results will continue to improve over time as optimal results develop in approximately one to three months.
