Opening up an oyster only to find a real pearl in it is beyond enchanting. In fact, it’s fair to say that most people who own real pearls have purchased them from a jewelry store or boutique. As one of the most timeless pieces that you can wear, pearls aren’t going out of style anytime soon. But pearls aren’t just for wearing around your neck or dangling from your ears. In fact, here at Dr. Kenneth Dembny’s office, we offer a unique laser skin treatment named after this prized possession: the Cutera Pearl Laser. Read on to learn more.
How Is Cutera Pearl Laser Different?
There are a few different types of laser resurfacing treatments available. One of the most popular forms of laser skin treatment is called ablative laser resurfacing. By using water, the laser energy is better absorbed by the skin. By damaging the skin cells, an ablative laser is effective at encouraging new skin cell production— leaving patients with smoother, healthier skin in the process. So, how is Cutera Pearl different? The objective of Cutera’s Pearl technology is to combine ablation and thermal impact which allows for patients to get the benefits of ablation with a shorter recovery period.
What does it treat?
The Cutera Pearl is primarily used to treat sun damaged skin that has sun spots, has lost elasticity, and has started to form fine lines and wrinkles. Our patients have seen an immense improvement in their skin’s texture, feel, and clarity.
What is recovery like?
Compared to other ablation laser treatments that take a week or two for patients to recover from, Cutera Pearl only takes about 3-4 days for the skin to show significant improvement. During your recovery, you should avoid any direct sun exposure because your skin will be more likely to burn. Additionally, you should refrain from using any harsh chemicals or products on your skin. When you are sent home from our office, we will send you with a detailed pamphlet including things you should do while in recovery.
The Cutera Pearl is a revolutionary laser skin treatment that is designed to help patients get rid of years of sun damage in just a few 20-minute sessions. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of this treatment, contact Dr. Kenneth Dembny’s office today and schedule an appointment.
