Sound too good to be true? The Pearl laser treatment is a new laser treatment that revolutionizes the treatment of skin texture, wrinkles and sun damage.
Pearl treats the top layer of the skin to remove sun damage, texture and wrinkles. The deeper layers of the skin are heated to stimulate collagen growth.
Pearl is skin rejuvenation at its finest.
The external layer of our skin is under a constant barrage of elements. Wind, sun, grime, pollution, it all contributes towards an uneven surface of dead skin. While your skin does renew itself every ten to fourteen days, age, dietary habits and improper care can hinder cellular regeneration and growth.
Through the use of Cutera’s Pearl laser treatment skin resurfacing system we comfortably remove that layer of rough, uneven skin to reveal the layer of smooth, fresh skin underneath.
Pearl is a unique wavelength exclusive to Cutera lasers. What makes Pearl special is that it offers many of the benefits associated with CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser resurfacing without the risks and downtime.
With our ablative laser technology we can reveal the fresh, appealing skin that is just under the surface of your rough, uneven surfaces.
A Cutera Pearl laser treatment at our SW Calgary clinic is fast and comfortable. We use a topical anaethetic prior to treatment and an advanced air-cooling system during treatment for added comfort. With Pearl, there is a modest degree of social downtime. Depending on the level of treatment you receive, you may expect between 3-5 days of social downtime typically. This means that you will be red with minor swelling and should avoid sun exposure. A special moisturizing lotion for post laser treatment is applied to protect your new, baby-fresh skin while it is healing.
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 appear pink/red for 3-4 days.
How does a 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 the treatment feeling like a 2 or 3. We apply a special topical numbing cream prior to treatment which is very effective. In addition, we use a high-speed air chiller which allows for an extremely comfortable treatment.
When will I see results? How soon can I wear make-up after a Pearl treatment?
Results are noticeable by day 3 or 4 when the superficial tissue has peeled off, revealing fresh, bright, healthy skin underneath. Make-up may be applied at this time.
How many treatments are recommended?
Some patients may require two treatments spaced approximately one month apart to achieve the desired results. Other patients may need only one treatment.
Can Pearl be part of a combination therapy treatment?
Yes, patients may choose to have a Pearl treatment combined with other Cutera procedures such as Laser Genesis and/or Titan, as well as fillers or Botox. Discuss combination therapies with your practitioner.
How does Pearl compare to other laser treatments?
Pearl offers the most effective treatment to address fine lines, uneven texture and discoloration without would care and the lengthy downtime with certain Erbium and CO2 laser procedures.
Compared to today’s fractionated technologies, Pearl offers noticeable results in just one treatment versus 3-6 fractionated treatments.
Who is a candidate for a Pearl treatment?
Patients with light to medium skin tones and mild to moderate sun damage are the ideal candidates.
How much is a Pearl treatment?
Full-face Pearl treatments are now just $1350. Additional areas can be added at same time including neck, chest and hands for a minor additional fee. Ask for details.
