There are a multitude of techniques to rejuvenate and resurface the skin, of which LASERs are the most sophisticated. Most LASERs require several treatments to achieve the final desire result, but using the Pearl Fractional LASER, the result is normally achieved in one treatment.
The Pearl Fractional LASER is designed to smooth out wrinkles and improve skin quality. It can address skin texture, reduce pore size, even out pigment spots and help treat sun damage.
Pearl Fractional LASER is a safe procedure when performed carefully by an experienced practitioner. However, like with any medical treatment, side effects and complications can occur. The main concerns are alterations in skin pigment, which can be more associated with deeper treatments. Scarring is rarely seen, but again, it has a higher likelihood with deeper treatments. Your Consultant Plastic Surgeon will discuss the risks with you in person.
Infection is possible, and antibiotics are usually prescribed for the immediate post-treatment period. If you have had a cold sore in the past, it is important to mention this, as the virus can be reactivated. In this case, treatment with an antiviral medicine is important after the treatment.
