Say Goodbye to Fine Lines and Wrinkles With Pearly Peel

Pearly Peel Treatment

Do you dream of smoother, more youthful skin? The Fotona Pearly Peel treatment might be the answer you’ve been looking for. This non-invasive laser procedure is designed to erase fine lines and wrinkles and brighten skin tone and age spots, leaving your skin refined and renewed.

In this guide, we’ll explore the benefits of Fotona Pearly Peel treatment, how it works, and what to expect during and after the procedure. We will also share how it can be combined with other treatments for optimal results.

What is Pearly Peel Treatment?

SL Aesthetic Pearly Peel Treatment

The Fotona Pearly Peel treatment is a non-surgical laser procedure designed to rejuvenate your skin and tackle early signs of ageing. It utilises an erbium laser beam to target the top layer of dead skin cells, promoting cell turnover and aiding in skin rejuvenation. It’s a gentle yet practical approach to refining skin texture, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. 

Fun fact: The Fotona Pearly Peel treatment is actually the last step in our Fotona 6D treatment, a proprietary 6-technology laser treatment intended to create results similar to a facelift. Our patients like the skin smoothening effects of Pearly Peel so much we decided to offer it as a separate treatment too!

How does Pearly Peel Treatment Work?

The erbium laser used in the Pearly Peel treatment emits energy absorbed by the water in your skin cells. This controlled energy absorption vaporises the top layer of dead skin cells, promoting natural exfoliation.

Simultaneously, the laser stimulates collagen production and growth of new skin, encouraging a mild firming and tightening effect.

What are the Benefits of Pearly Peel Treatment?

Remove Pigmentation

Skin pigmentation such as sun spots and lentigines can add years to your appearance. With its fractionated erbium beam, this treatment removes areas of superficial pigmentation, allowing newer and fresher skin to take its place. 

Gradually, these pigmented spots fade away, revealing a bright and even complexion.

Pore Size Reduction

Large pores can create an uneven texture on your skin. By stimulating collagen production as it removes dead skin cells, the Pearly Peel treatment tightens your skin, causing your pores to appear smaller and less prominent. Say hello to smoother skin!

Skin Tightening

The Pearly Peel laser’s gentle heat exfoliates and stimulates collagen production deep within your skin. It has been proven to improve collagen density. This boost in collagen firms up your skin and gives it a tighter, more youthful contour.

Minimal Downtime 

Unlike more invasive procedures that might require days of recovery, the Pearly Peel treatment lets you get back to your routine almost immediately. While you might experience some mild redness or peeling, it is normal and will subside on its own fairly quickly. 

Preparing for Pearly Peel Treatment

A little preparation can go a long way in ensuring the best possible outcome. After the initial consultation, here’s what you must do before the treatment.

Sun Protection

In the weeks following your treatment, take extra care to shield your skin from excessive sun exposure. Sunburned or tanned skin can affect the efficacy of the laser treatment and increase the risk of complications.

Discontinue Certain Products

Your skincare routine might include products that could potentially increase skin sensitivity. A few days before your Pearly Peel treatment, we recommend avoiding retinoids, exfoliants, and other potentially irritating products to prevent any adverse reactions during the procedure. 

Share your Medical History

Do mention any existing skin conditions, allergies, or recent cosmetic procedures you’ve undergone. This information helps us ensure your safety and the effectiveness of the treatment.

Plan for Downtime

While the Pearly Peel treatment offers minimal downtime compared to more invasive procedures, you might still experience some redness, swelling, and peeling immediately after the session. Plan your schedule accordingly, avoiding important events or special occasions for a couple of days post-treatment. 

What to Expect During the Pearly Peel Treatment

  1. Cleansing and preparation
    Before beginning the procedure, we will cleanse your skin to remove any traces of makeup so the laser can effectively target the skin’s surface.
  2. Protective eyewear
    We provide protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser light.
  3. Laser application
    As the Pearly Peel treatment begins, you’ll experience the sensation of the erbium laser gently gliding across your skin.
  4. Mild sensation
    Most individuals report feeling a mild warming sensation during the procedure. This sensation is generally well-tolerated, and many find the experience relatively comfortable.
  5. Precise targeting
    The laser is precisely controlled, targeting specific areas of concern while avoiding any unnecessary impact on surrounding skin.
  6. Duration and number of sessions
    The duration of the Pearly Peel treatment varies depending on the size of the treated area. One session typically lasts around 20 minutes. 

Pearly Peel Treatment Aftercare and Recovery

After the treatment, your skin might appear slightly pink or flushed, a normal reaction to the laser energy. We may apply a soothing serum or moisturiser to alleviate discomfort and quicken the recovery.

With the Pearly Peel treatment’s minimal downtime, you can return to your scheduled activities immediately after the session as long as you avoid direct sun exposure.

How Pearly Peel is combined with Fotona Treatment

We can combine the Pearly Peel treatment with other Fotona laser treatments for optimal results. These combinations can address broader skin concerns, such as deeper wrinkles or more severe pigmentation issues.

At SL Aesthetic Clinic, Pearly Peel treatment is included as the last step of our 6D Pro Facelift laser treatment. This treatment employs six laser modes to target different skin levels for enhanced tightening, firming and lifting of your skin.

Laser Peel vs. Chemical Peel Treatment

The Pearly Peel treatment is a laser peel procedure. Like chemical peels, it improves skin texture, tone, and appearance.

Chemical peels involve applying a chemical solution to exfoliate the skin, whereas laser peels use concentrated light energy to achieve the same effect. 

Choosing between a laser peel and a chemical peel depends on your preferences and skin goals. Laser peels, like the Fotona Pearly Peel, use targeted laser energy for precise results and collagen stimulation, with minimal downtime. 

Chemical peels come in different strengths and are budget-friendly, but they might be less precise and could require more sessions for deeper concerns.

Who is Suitable for Pearly Peel?

The Fotona Pearly Peel treatment suits both men and women seeking a non-surgical solution to correct signs of ageing. However, we can only determine if this treatment is the right fit for you after a professional consultation. 

What is the Price of a Pearly Peel Treatment?

The cost of the Pearly Peel treatment ranges from $300 to $500. It can vary depending on the number of sessions required. A series of sessions is more cost-effective than a single treatment. 

We invite you to schedule a consultation for an accurate cost estimate.
