From acne scarring and sun damage, to unwanted scars and wrinkles, the appearance of your skin can have a big impact on your confidence and self-esteem.
Where it was once a challenge to treat these common skin problems, PEARL offers a unique advancement in technology, delivering maximum single treatment results for the skin with superior comfort and minimal downtime.
What is PEARL?
Distributed in Australia by Cutera, PEARL is an ablative laser designed to improve imperfections due to ageing and sun damage. It uses an exclusive YSGG wavelength technology (2790 nm) to maximise results and safety while minimising downtime, all in a single treatment.
PEARL works by using laser pulses to create tiny holes deep in the skin. It selectively and precisely removes the surface of the skin’s layers without damaging the surrounding skin.
The process removes sun-damaged tissue and stimulates the growth of healthy, new skin, full of fresh collagen. This plumps the skin from below, repairing photo damage and other skin imperfections.
What can it treat?
PEARL can be used to treat a variety of common skin concerns. It can be used to treat the entire face, including the delicate eye area and around the mouth. These are the niggling areas that often show the first signs of ageing, and can be difficult to treat.
PEARL delivers unbeatable results in sun damaged skin, acne scarring, wrinkles, poor skin texture, large pores, unwanted scars and skin blemishes such as age spots. Perfect for the treatment of wrinkles, PEARL works especially well on fine lines and blotches. In terms of deeper wrinkles, you can expect them to soften and look much less obvious.
What to expect
The treatment generally lasts for around 30 minutes, making it a great lunchtime procedure.
Before treatment the doctor will apply a topical numbing cream to help with any discomfort. Most patients describe the sensation as a series of fast, hot pinches. A comparative study to similar devices demonstrated that PEARL was a more comfortable treatment.
After the procedure, you can expect some temporary swelling and slight redness. The good news? You can return to regular activities immediately following the treatment.
In terms of results, you can expect to see an improvement one week after treatment, and maximum results are seen over a six-month period.
With minimal downtime and visible results, PEARL is the perfect treatment if you are looking to tackle deep-set imperfections and tired/weathered skin in one-treatment session.
