The Pearl fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment we perform in London, Ontario, produces results that match its name—skin with the smooth, luminous glow of pearls. The fractional laser penetrates the skin with thousands of pinpoint columns of light, creating micro-channels that stimulate new collagen production without ablating the skin’s entire surface. We apply a topical numbing cream before beginning the laser treatment and then make multiple passes with the handpiece after the skin is completely numb, with the procedure typically taking less than 30 minutes.
Recovery takes about 5 to 7 days and you’ll start noticing results within a week, with improvements continuing to appear over the next 1 to 3 months.
