Pearl Fractional is a fractional laser perfected for treating photodamaged skin in just one treatment. Pearl Fractional offers the best combination of patient experience and recovery time.
What does “fractional” mean? How does the Pearl Fractional work?
Fractional therapy describes a treatment that exposes only a fraction of the skin to the laser beam in a pattern of tiny dots. With Pearl Fractional, laser pulses place tiny holes in the skin. Columns of damaged tissue are selectively removed, leaving surrounding skin intact. After a treatment, the body’s own natural process creates new collagen improving the appearance of fine lines and aging skin.
How many treatments are recommended?
Most patients see significant improvement after just one treatment.
What areas of the face can be treated?
Pearl Fractional can be used on the entire face and is uniquely effective in treating the delicate periorbital (around the eyes) and perioral (around the mouth) areas. These areas often show the first signs of aging and can be the most challenging to treat.
Can Pearl Fractional be part of a combination therapy?
Many patients have a Pearl Fractional treatment in combination with other existing cosmetic therapies. These include other Cutera laser and light procedures, such as Pearl®, Laser Genesis and LimeLight®. Call and schedule a consultation with one of our five certified plastic surgeons for combination treatment options.
