How Pearl Fractional Works

Your treatment will begin by numbing your skin with a topical cream to ensure maximum comfort for you during the procedure. The laser will then utilize heat to create tiny holes deep within your skin with fractionated technology. This state-of-the-art technology allows only a small percentage of the skin to be treated at a very deep level by the laser, which decreases downtime while providing superior results. The Pearl Fractional laser helps remove years of aging while promoting the growth of vibrant, healthy new skin full of collagen.
