Laser treatments have a broad spectrum of potency. Treatments range from the “lunch time treatment” with no downtime (but usually requires several treatments), to those powerful treatments that have longer downtimes but can rival plastic surgery in removing deep wrinkles. Several years ago, “Fraxel” was the new potent laser treatment, but it still required four treatments, each of which had a downtime of several days. Now, Pearl Fractional by Cutera is the latest generation in fractionated laser. It is extremely effective and usually takes only one treatment.
Plastic surgery just stretches sun-damaged skin (with large pores and fine lines), whereas the Pearl Fractional improves the skin quality, creating new collagen, and plumping the skin from below, reversing photoaging and other imperfections.
The Pearl Fractional is available at select locations. In the Coachella Valley, this therapy is available only at Desert Med Aesthetics.
What does “fractional” mean?
How does the Pearl Fractional work?Fractional therapy describes a treatment that exposes only a fraction of the skin to the laser beam in a pattern of tiny dots. With Pearl Fractional, laser pulses place tiny holes in the skin. Columns of damaged tissue are selectively removed, leaving surrounding skin intact. The treatment shortens healing time and stimulates the body’s own natural process for creating new collagen, plumping the skin from below and reversing photoaging and other imperfections.
- Tiny holes enable safe treatment and a rapid recovery
- Deep treatment provides results in a single session
- Controlled energy means maximum results with a more comfortable patient experience
