Midly Ablative Fractional
By NewBeauty Editors |
Pearl lasesr treat superficial fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and uneven texture, utilizing a new wavelength that’s very close to erbium YAG devices. But Pearl is different in that it is only mildly ablative. While it does remove a fine layer of the skin, the skin is left intact to serve as a protective dressing while the skin below the surface heals. “As opposed to years ago, when resurfacing came with weeks or months of downtime, with Pearl we see about four days of redness and flaking,” says Montclair, NJ, plastic surgeon Barry DiBernardo, MD. “Do this treatment on a Thursday or Friday, and you should be back to work on Monday,” says New York dermatologist David Goldberg, MD.
