Utilizing a wavelength that has the pigment-improving capabilities of the erbium:YAG laser and the skin-tightening effect of CO2 lasers, the 10- to 15-minute Pearl laser treatment, by Cutera, gently removes the damaged, uppermost layer of skin under local anesthesia. As it addresses the surface, it simultaneously heats the layers below to improve wrinkles and uneven texture.
Pearl feels like a brief series of pinches, and most people need one or two treatments in order to see an improvement in lines, wrinkles, discoloration and texture.
You’ll experience sunburn-like redness for the first few days, during which you’ll need to keep skin moist with an ointment. You should be able to start wearing makeup on day three, and skin should begin to peel at this time, as well.
