Reduces brown spots

Pearl™ is a laser resurfacing treatment that uses a unique wavelength of light to send heat to the deeper layers of the skin.

This stimulates collagen production for immediate and long-term anti-aging benefits, including reducing the appearance of brown spots (also known as age spots) and fine lines around lips and eyes.

Because Pearl™ ablates or removes the top layer of skin, it helps decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation on the surface of the skin, renewing skin’s surface while restoring its natural glow.

How it Works/What To Expect

During the procedure, Dr. Clinton treats the top layer of skin with pulses of light in a pre-selected pattern. Many patients describe the treatment as a series of intense but brief pinches, almost like a rubber band snapping the skin. As with any procedure that has the propensity to produce discomfort, Dr. Clinton offers a numbing cream prior to treatment.

Immediately after treatment, skin will be red and swollen with a honeycomb-like appearance. Later, the skin will form a natural, protective dressing that sloughs off within 3 to 4 days, however, most patients can expect 5 to 7 days of work and social downtime.

After treatment, most patients notice overall skin clarity, smoothness, softness and reduced pigmentation issues.

Optimal results are seen after 1 to 2 treatments, however, new collagen production will continue for up to 6 months.

Dr. Clinton also uses IPL/Photofacial in conjunction with Pearl™ to further treat discoloration.

Patient Instructions
