Cutera Pearl Fractional Laser Treatments

Cutera Pearl Fractional laser is perfect for treating photodamaged skin in just one treatment. Pearl Fractional offers the best combination of patient experience and recovery time. This treatment offers superior skin rejuvenation with only three to four days of recovery/downtime, unlike traditional erbium and CO2 lasers.

Pearl Fractional can be used on the entire face and is uniquely effective in treating the delicate periorbital (around the eyes) and perioral (around the mouth) areas. These areas often show the first signs of aging and can be the most challenging to treat.

What to Expect from Treatment

Individuals with light-to-medium skin tones and skin imperfections due to aging and sun damage are ideal candidates for this treatment.

Fractional therapy 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 the surrounding skin intact. After treatment, the body’s own natural process creates new collagen improving the appearance of fine lines and aging skin.

  • Tiny holes enable safe treatment and a rapid recovery.
  • Deep treatment provides results in a single session.
  • Controlled energy means maximum results with greater patient comfort.

Most patients describe the treatment as a series of fast, hot pinches. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin before treatment to alleviate discomfort. Practitioners may choose to augment topical creams with other medications based on patient needs.
