Resurfacing Pearl Laser Treatment – Semi Ablative Pearl


(*Disclaimer: Please note that treatment results will vary from individual to individual.)

The Solihull Medical Cosmetic Clinic is one of the first clinics in the UK to introduce the Pearl laser treatment, and Dr Sagoo is one of the leading doctors in the UK to carry out this exclusive procedure.

The Pearl Laser Treatment

A safe, effective treatment that may restore the skin’s natural glow.

What is the Pearl Procedure?

The Pearl laser treatment combines resurfacing lasers with gentle and safe non-invasive procedures to improve ageing and sun-damaged skin.  The Pearl laser treatment may reduce fine wrinkles, uneven texture and sun damage, with fewer treatments and less overall recovery than other technologies to provide a healthy, pearl-like glow.

How does the Pearl laser treatment work?

During the procedure, the top layer of skin is treated with pulses of light in a pre-selected pattern, the external layer of the skin is under constant pressure from everyday activities and elements will all contribute to damaged skin. The laser simultaneously sends heat to the deeper layers of the skin and you may feel I mild pinch, but the pearl laser treatment may provide longer-term benefits. A natural protective dressing forms on the skin to minimise downtime during the restorative and recovery process. On day three or four, this natural dressing will peel or slough off, which may reveal new, healthy, vibrant skin underneath.

In a short time, many patients will notice overall skin clarity, smoothness and softness – all from a fifteen-minute treatment with only three to four days “social” downtime.

What is “social” downtime?

Downtime is the time spent recovering from a procedure. With “social” downtime, you can continue many of your normal daily activities. However, with the pearl laser treatment, you may not wish to attend important social events because your face will appear pink/red for three to four days.

How does a Pearl laser treatment feel?

The Pearl laser treatment feels like a series of brief pinches. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 representing pain, most patients report the treatment is about a 2 or a 3.

When will I see results? How soon can I wear make-up after a Pearl laser treatment?

For a few days after the pearl laser treatment, your face will start to appear red and feel sunburned. Results are usually noticeable by day three or four when the superficial tissue has peeled off, revealing fresh, bright, healthy skin underneath. Make-up may be applied at this time.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after a Pearl laser treatment?

After treatment, the skin will usually look and feel mildly sunburned. Dr Sagoo will advise you fully on post-treatment care during your free consultation.

How many Pearl laser treatments are recommended?

Many patients need only one treatment. However, some patients may require two treatments spaced approximately one month apart to achieve the desired results.

Can Pearl be a part of a combination therapy treatment?

Many patients have a Pearl laser treatment in combination with other laser and light procedures. Dr Sagoo advises on combination packages during the consultation.

How does Pearl compare to other laser treatments?

Pearl offers an effective treatment that may address fine lines, uneven texture and discolouration, without the need for wound care and lengthy downtime that is seen with other Erbium and CO2 laser procedures.

Who is a candidate for Pearl laser treatment?

Patients with light to medium skin tones and mild to moderate sun damage are ideal candidates.

Does the Pearl laser treatment have FDA clearance?

Yes, the Pearl laser treatment has FDA clearance for the treatment of wrinkles and skin resurfacing.
