Pearl and Pearl Fractional are procedures offered at Medi-Spa at Knoxville Dermatology Group for Brown Spot Treatment.
Fractional therapy is a treatment that 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 surrounding skin intact.
We will evaluate the dark spots you wish to correct and determine the best lasers for your customized pigmentation Treatment. These might include other methods besides the Pearl and Pearl Fractional.
We often use both the Pearl and Pearl Fractional to achieve the best outcomes.
The length of time required for your treatment will depend on the number of areas to be treated. This usually requires 1 hour of numbing and 30-60 minutes for treatment. Many people require only one treatment, but you may need more in order to lighten all dark areas of skin and even out skin tone as much as possible.
Pearl and Pearl Fractional treatments feel like a series of stings or pinches on the skin. We can apply a topical anesthetic to make you more comfortable during your procedure.
The lightening of dark spots takes about a week after your treatment. You will be asked to avoid wearing make-up for about 5-7 days after Pearl Laser or Pearl Fractional Laser, and you will have to wear Vaseline on the treated areas for 5-7 days. Your skin will feel slightly sunburned afterward, and you may experience some mild swelling.
If you have darker skin, you may not be a good candidate for Pearl or Pearl Fractional. If you are unsure, contact us, and we will advise you if these treatments will work for you.
After care instructions will include application of an ointment and use of sunscreen whenever outdoors. Avoidance of sun exposure will also help to prevent new brown spots from forming in the future.
Lasers are among the safest non-surgical cosmetic skin procedures available today. They specifically target only those cells that are in need of treatment without damaging other tissues.
