Improve pore size, skin texture and skin tone with our Pearl Fractional laser treatment
The Pearl Fractional laser treatment uses a unique wavelength that facilitates the proper balance of tissue removal and thermal damage to the epidermis. This can improve pore size, texture and tone, and stimulate collagen.
The Pearl Fractional laser creates a matrix of thousands of microscopic laser spots, each 300 microns in diameter, surrounded by untreated normal skin. These laser spots are deep microscopic columns of ablated tissue extending through the epidermis into the dermis. This laser uses a new concept in laser resurfacing known as “fractional” photothermolysis. Thousands of microscopic laser columns are put into the epidermis to the dermis with this laser scar reduction treatment. This means a portion of the skin is treated by the laser, while the skin surrounding this area is left untreated. Therefore, only a portion, or “fraction”, of the skin is treated in a session. This is the completely opposite of the conventional ablative lasers which treat the whole skin surface creating an open wound.
The advantage with the pearl fractional scar treatment is that healing time is reduced and treatment stimulates the body’s own natural process for creating new collagen and new skin. This will then plump up the skin from below helping to smooth out scarring, reverse photo ageing and other imperfections. It also causes less pain during and after treatment, results in less downtime, has an extremely low risk for infection, and requires no need for general anaesthesia. The Pearl Fractional laser is a safer device that is well tolerated, and achieves long term results.
During True Skin’s scar treatment in Sydney we use topical anaesthesia and an external air cooling device for patient comfort. Supplemental oral medication and local anaesthetic is sometimes required. You will notice results immediately and your skin will continue to improve over the following weeks and months as your skin continues to produce new collagen in the treated areas. Many patients have a Laser Pearl Fractional scar treatment in Sydney in combination with other treatments such as intense pulsed light (IPL), Laser Genesis, anti-wrinkle injections and soft tissue fillers pre and post treatment in order to get the best results.
Even though scar treatment is not as ablative as other laser therapies, the skin is still wounded and will require special care for a week or more after therapy. At True Skin we pride ourselves in how we take care of our clients and this extends to pre and post procedure care.
We will prepare you beforehand with the correct skin nutrition and skin care Products. After a Pearl Fractional scar treatment, your skin will be extremely red for 3 or 4 days and you will not be able to go to work during this period.
We will assist you with wound care and provide detailed information about what you can do to minimise pain and discomfort.
If possible we would also like to have you return every day for the first few days then every second day to undergo LED Therapy for the best chance of getting an excellent result with the fastest healing. Please note you must stay out of the sun for a week after the procedure to reduce risk of hyper pigmentation.
