If your skin looks dull, lifeless, or has imperfections that you can’t just treat with at-home topical skincare products, we want to introduce you to a skincare treatment that can and will transform your skin in just one treatment. At the Laser Center of Marin in Corte Madera, CA, we offer Pearl Fractional, a fractional laser treatment that can help you get that smooth and glowing pearl-like complexion.
Pearls are rare, and so is a flawless complexion, so it only fits that this laser treatment is named after a pearl. We can help you get that rare, bright, and glowing complexion after one treatment. You’ll be amazed at the dramatic difference this laser treatment can make in the overall quality of your skin and your appearance.
What Is Pearl Fractional?
Pearl Fractional is a fractional single laser treatment that helps address skin imperfections, aging, and sun damage. It helps address photo-aging to improve skin tone, photo damage, and skin texture to create a brighter and smoother complexion.
The fractional aspect of this treatment relates to the fact that the laser only addresses a very small area of the skin during treatment. The laser will be moved around your entire face in slow, steady movements to help target some of your worst skin conditions.
Collagen: The Modern Day Fountain of Youth
Everyone has been looking for the fountain of youth, but they maybe didn’t realize that this whole time, it’s been right in front of us. Your body’s collagen production abilities are the closest thing you’ll get to the fountain of youth. As your age, your body starts making less collagen than it used in your younger years, and that’s why your skin begins to exhibit the signs of aging.
Skincare treatments that promote collagen production really are the next best thing to finding that fountain of youth. Once you undergo a treatment that forces your body to generate a healing response and create more collagen, your youth will be restored. Not only that, it will help treat and improve those skin conditions that detract from your complexion and make you feel anything but youthful.
Unlocking Your Body’s Collagen Production
This treatment will unlock your body’s collagen production abilities, and as a result, you’ll see some incredible results. Your skin will look better, you’ll look and feel younger, and you may be able to achieve that perfect glowing complexion that you never thought possible.
What Does It Treat?
This treatment is designed to resurface the complexion. Specifically, it can be used to target concerns on the entire face. It can also be used to treat the eye area and the area around the mouth.
Treating aging below and around the eyes and in the perioral area, which is the area around your mouth, is difficult to do with skincare products. Still, this treatment will make a significant difference in your skin. It can help address many problematic skin conditions, including:
- Acne or general scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Pigmentation concerns
- Poor skin tone
- Crow’s feet
- Sun damage
- Age spots
How Does It Work?
This treatment works by using laser light to create tiny holes in the deep layers of the skin. In doing so, it helps remove damaged tissue while leaving the rest of the skin unharmed. The tiny holes created in your skin generate the body’s healing response that helps increase collagen production to add volume to the skin in the deeper layers, addresses photo-aging, and helps perfect the skin on different levels.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Because this treatment can reach some of the deepest layers of the skin, you can expect to see results after one treatment. Pearl Fractional uses controlled energy, which helps you get the best results possible. Most patients begin to see an improvement in their problem areas within one week of their initial session. The best results appear within one to three months of treatment.
Unlike other treatments that often require patients to schedule a series of treatments for results, most patients only need one Pearl Factional treatment to see an improvement in their problem areas. The good news is, you will continue to see improvements in your skin for up to six months after your treatment. This is the treatment that keeps on giving because you’ll continue to see and experience all the benefits that come from increased collagen and total skin rejuvenation.
What Happens During a Treatment?
When you arrive for your treatment, we will apply a topical numbing solution to your skin to help ensure your comfort throughout the session. Once your skin becomes numb, we will situate you on a treatment bench and apply protective eyewear before beginning the treatment. Our technician will then use the Pearl Fractional device to target your problem areas.
As a device makes contact with your skin, you’ll feel a warming sensation and hear a tapping noise as the device perforates tiny holes in your skin’s surface. These tiny holes will be visible after your treatment and will heal in the weeks that follow. Sessions can take 30 to 60 minutes to complete based on your treatment areas.
Is There Any Downtime?
Most patients recover from this treatment within seven days of their session. You will be asked to avoid makeup for five days post-treatment. Most patients schedule this treatment around events so that they can let their skin heal without spending a lot of time in public. However, once that one week has passed, most patients resume all their normal daily activities.
You must take extra care of your skin in the week following your treatment. Avoid sun exposure and apply any topical products recommended to you by one of our technicians as directed.
What Are the Benefits?
You Will See Results
Waiting around for results is never easy, but when you schedule this treatment, you’ll see an improvement in your skin within a week. Patients love this treatment because it does deliver results every time. You will get increased collagen, you will see an improvement in your most stubborn skin imperfections, and you will get a brighter complexion.
You Only Need One Treatment
Some of the most effective skincare treatments require that you schedule a series of treatments to achieve your desired results. When you schedule a Pearl Fractional treatment, you only need one treatment to see your skin transform right before your eyes.
It Improves Sun-Damaged Skin
Sun damage doesn’t show up right after you spend time in the sun; it often waits until years later. If you have sun damage, know that it’s not too late to treat and even reverse it. If you’re regretting all those spring breaks that you spent at the beach, the pool, or out in the sun without a drop of SPF, we understand.
That sun damage on your skin is a reminder of your poor choices, but we can help silence and eradicate that sun damage with just one laser treatment. If you want to be rid of pigmentation issues and all of the other signs of sun damage on your face, this treatment can help make all of your dreams come true.
It Targets Aging
If you’re not ready to undergo an invasive procedure to target aging or begin a routine with cosmetic injectables, you don’t have to. You can still combat aging in a minimally invasive way, and this treatment will help you do just that.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for this treatment are men and women with light to medium skin tones. Those who want to treat the signs of aging, sun damage, and other skin imperfections make good candidates for this laser treatment. The best way to determine if this fractional laser treatment is right for you is by scheduling an initial consultation with one of our experts.
We will review your health history, analyze your skin, and discuss your concerns and your goals. We will make sure that your skin tone can tolerate this treatment well, and if so, we will schedule your appointment.
