Pearl™ Laser Procedure
The Pearl Treatment. Renew your skin's surface and minimize wrinkles, uneven texture and discoloration in only one or two treatments.
What is the Pearl Procedure?
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.
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 the skin to provide long-term benefits. A natural protective dressing forms on the skin to minimize downtime during the restorative process. After a few days, 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 - a from a 15 minute treatment with only a few 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 pink/red for a few days.
How does the Pearl treatment feel?
The Pearl treatment feels like a series of brief pinches. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 representing pain, most patients report 2 or 3.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after a Pearl treatment?
After treatment, the skin will look and feel mildly sunburned. You will apply ointment on the skin for 3 to 4 days. Since you cannot wear sunscreen during this time, you will need protective clothing and to limit sun exposure for a few days after the treatment.
