Pearl™ Laser

Treats sun damage and uneven texture

This high-tech laser regenerates sun-damaged skin and restores a more youthful look, thanks to a unique wavelength of light that stimulates collagen. Pearl™ is also used to treat lips, eyes and enlarge pores.

How it Works/What To Expect

Because Pearl™ ablates, or removes, the top layer of skin, it helps decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines and uneven skin tone. It renews skin’s surface while restoring its natural glow.

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

Do not pick, peel, rub or irritate the skin while it heals. See complete treatment instructions.
