Pearl Fractional Laser
Built upon 25 years of excellence, Hunt Valley Laser and Skin Care Center is your premier choice for Pearl Fractional Laser Treatments in the Baltimore and Hunt Valley area.
This is the latest exciting treatment which in controlled fashion, aggressively and safely treats signs of photo-damage and a host of other dermal imperfections. Deep lines, pigmentation, acne scarring and skin laxity can all be dramatically improved in one session with downtime of 5 to 7 days.
How Does the Laser Work?
Pearl Fractional penetrates the deep dermis producing a series of micro-columns across the skin, vaporizing and removing damaged tissue. Simultaneously, it heats and coagulates neighboring tissue, reducing operative bleeding.
Immediately post treatment, dermal tissue begins to repair itself. Over time, stimulation initiated by the combination of ablation and thermal coagulation leads to the production of new collagen – resulting in volumetric improvement to reduce the effects of photo-damage.
Patients only require a single treatment for significant improvement in photo-damage and dermal imperfections. Recovery is fast with re-epithelialization during the first 2-4 days post-treatment and most erythema gradually subsiding over 5 to 7 days. Patient downtime is typically limited to one week.
The Pearl Fractional Procedure
During the procedure, the laser uses heat to create tiny holes deep in the skin. The process removes sun-damaged tissue and then stimulates the growth of healthy, new skin, full of fresh collagen. This plumps the skin from below, repairing photo-damage and other skin imperfections.
What does “fractional” mean? How does the Pearl Fractional treatment work?
Fractional therapy describes a treatment that affects only a fraction or small percentage of the skin. With Pearl Fractional, laser pulses treat damaged cells deep in the skin. This fractional treatment selectively removes columns of tissue leaving surrounding skin intact. This treatment shortens healing time and stimulates the body’s own natural process for creating new collagen, plumping the skin from below and reversing photo aging and other imperfections.
