Why do you use the Pearl laser for skin rejuvenation?

The first laser for skin rejuvenation was the carbon dioxide, or CO2 laser. Developed in 1996, it led to a revolution in how lasers were viewed by physicians. In skilled hands, it resulted in a reduction in texture, sun damage, age spots, and fine lines. However, it did require one month of time for the wounds to heal, and it did require people to stay out of the sun for at least 3 months.

The Erbium laser, developed in 1998 addressed the issue of significant time off work by changing the frequency of light used. However, it often required multiple treatments and there were still issues with wound care. It was very effective in the hands of a skilled practitioner.

In the early 2000s, many new technologies for skin rejuvenation were developed. These are also extremely effective, and require no down time. However, they often take multiple treatments. As such, results are often very good, but certainly not as impressive as the CO2 laser.

Cutera has introduced the Pearl laser. A laser that combines aggressive rejuvenation of the skin, with minimal downtime. Most people will need to take only 4 to 5 days off work after a treatment. Results are noticed about a month after their 2nd treatment.


How does it work?

The Pearl uses a unique new type of laser to gently treat the surface of the skin. Their laser gently heats the damaged surface of your skin, and in so doing, will cause the gradual elimination of many of the damaged parts of your skin.

The unique properties of the Pearl result in it also heating up the layers just underneath the surface of the skin. This results in the collagen layer being stimulated. Heating at this level will result in the texture of your skin improving with time, and a smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles will occur.


Are Pearl laser treatments right for me?

Not all skin types are suitable for the Pearl. Initially, you will have a 30-minute consultation with one of our doctors. Your doctor will review your skin tone, textures and your expectations, to ensure the Pearl is right for you. The Pearl™ can also be used in combination with other light based treatments such as our Laser Genesis or Titan™ laser skin tightening treatments to give even better results, and help rejuvenate your skin dramatically.


What are Pearl laser treatments like?

When you arrive for the Pearl treatment, a very thin layer of a numbing cream will be applied to the area you are having treated to reduce any discomfort. This will stay on for approximately 15 minutes. Your doctor will then personally perform the procedure. This will take less than 30 minutes.


What happens after treatment?

After treatment, your skin will appear red like a mild sunburn. Over the next 3 to 4 days, you will likely feel a mild burning sensation on your face or other treated areas. (Most people describe this discomfort as a "2" on the scale of 1 to 10.) Expect peeling of the damaged skin. Most people start to notice results after 2 to 3 weeks.


How many treatments will I need?

Patients typically need 2 to 3 treatments to get optimal results.
