My life has been filled with loss and disappointment, but what you've done for me has helped me face my challenges. Even though I've not always felt assured, I've at least looked it!
Make your dark circles less noticeable with the Pearl™ laser resurfacing treatment. Using a unique wavelength of light, Pearl sends heat to the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. The increased collagen production helps lift under eye skin from the vascular bed where dark circles begin, making them much less noticeable.
Dr. Clinton takes a "focal treatment" approach to dark circles. That means she treats the entire face for first-time Pearl™ patients, followed by additional treatments, as needed.
For the procedure, Dr. Clinton offers a numbing cream to help ease discomfort. Then she treats the top layer of skin with pulses of light in a pre-selected pattern. Expect the treatment to feel like a series of intense but brief pinches, almost like a rubber band snapping the skin.
Immediately after, your skin will be red and swollen with a honeycomb-like appearance. Later, the skin will form a natural, protective dressing, which will start to slough off in about 3 to 4 days. With Pearl, you'll want to plan on 5 to 7 days of work and social downtime.
After the initial healing period, most patients notice improved skin clarity, smoothness, softness and reduced pigmentation.
Optimal results are seen after 1 to 2 treatments, however, new collagen production can continue for up to 6 months.
Refrain from picking, peeling, rubbing or irritating the skin while it heals. Get complete treatment instructions.
