A safe, effective treatment for restoring the skin's natural glow
Dr Caswell was the first medical practitioner in the world to use the Pearl Fractional in a commercial capacity. She realized that the technology, with walk in walk out treatment regimes, limited down time, no requirement for sedation, and effective results often with a single treatment, was something that her patients wanted. She is one of the most experienced doctors in Australia on this equipment and perhaps the world. The procedure is made comfortable with a specially formulated numbing gel, so that numbing injections are not required, and the skin will remain comfortable for a number of hours post procedure.
The attraction of a single treatment compares favorably with other devices where 4-6 treatments may be needed to see visible results. In cases of severely damaged skin, a second treatment may be needed, however Dr Caswell will discuss and recommend a treatment regime for you at consultation.
The Pearl Fractional is ideal for:
- Age spots
- Skin quality issues, collagen regeneration
- Fine lines
- Overall skin appearance
What is Pearl Fractional?
The Pearl procedure combines the impact of resurfacing laser with the gentleness and safety of non-invasive procedures to treat aging and sun-damaged skin. Pearl reduces wrinkles, uneven texture, and solar damage with fewer treatments and les overall recovery time than other technologies to provide a healthy, pearl-like glow.
How does the Pearl Treatment work?
During the procedure, the top layer of skin is treated with pulses of light in the pre-selected pattern. The laser simultaneously sends heat to the deeper layers of the skin to provide longer-term benefits. A natural protective dressing forms from the skin to minimize downtime during the restorative process. On day 3 or 4 this natural dressing will peel or slough off, revealing new, healthy, vibrant skin underneath.
What is the "social" downtime?
Downtime is the time spent recovering from a procedure. With social downtime you can still continue your normal daily activities. However, you may not wish to attend important social events because your face may be pink/red as the skin replaces itself. It is important that your treatment planning also includes mention of our social schedule so that procedures are planned not to clash with important events.
How does a Pearl Treatment feel?
Due to the specially formulated numbing gel that Dr Caswell uses, patients do not report any distinct discomfort during the procedure. Pain relief medication and a home care kit is provided to patients so that they may have a comfortable night sleep.
