Laser Skin Resurfacing | Pearl® Fractional Laser

Global Laser Cosmetics

We are proud to introduce Pearl® Fractional resurfacing laser at Global Laser Cosmetics, the latest in skin care technology! The new Pearl® Fractional laser is unlike any technology in the beauty industry today, and allows our doctor to treat your skin in a way like never before. This advanced anti-aging procedure can help to improve photo damaged skin, even out skin tone, and fill deep wrinkles.

What exactly is Pearl® Fractional resurfacing laser?

Fractional laser resurfacing is a skin resurfacing laser procedure that helps to improve imperfections due to sun damage and aging as well as smoothing and brightening the skin. During Pearl® Fractional laser resurfacing, a fraction of the skin is exposed to the laser beam and the laser pulses place tiny holes in the skin and damaged skin is then selectively removed.

After the laser resurfacing treatment, the body naturally creates new collagen which then improves the appearance of fine lines and aging skin.

Who is considered a good candidate for this treatment?

Patients that have light to medium skin tones and want to treat sun damaged, aging, and other skin imperfections are considered to be the best candidates for the fractional laser resurfacing treatment.  

What areas may be treated?

Fractional laser resurfacing can be used to treat the entire face. This is a very effective laser resurfacing treatment for perioral lines (outlining the mouth) and periorbital lines (around the eyes) which are one of the first signs of aging.

Skin improvements include:

  • Dyspigmentation
  • Photo-aging
  • Lines and Deeper Wrinkles
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Irregular Skin Texture
  • Acne Scarring

How does the Pearl® Fractional laser resurfacing treatment feel?

Most patients describe their Fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment as a series of fast, hot pinches. Before the treatment the doctor will administer numbing cream to minimize any discomfort.

What is the recovery process like?

Since this procedure is a slightly more invasive treatment, the recovery the recovery is more extensive than other treatments we offer. Following the treatment, patients will experience a mild to moderate sunburn sensation, swelling, and redness. This typically lasts for about 5-7 days, in which case we recommend to not wear makeup and to not be exposed to the sunlight.

When will I see results?

Many patients will start to see results about a week after their Fractional laser treatment. However, maximum results are seen within one to three months after the treatment.
