Pearl laser improves color better than texture
The new Pearl fractional is likely a better option for acne scars than the original Pearl, but I have no personal experience to attest to that possibility. The Pearl results, in my experience, max out at about one month.
Pearl laser not really for acne scarring
The Pearl laser is excellent for skin discoloration resulting from sun damage. It is an office treatment with very modest pain. I have treated over a hundred patients and not one time did I have to suspend treatment because of pain. The skin resurfaces in 4 to 5 days. I permit exercise immediately. Most patients benefit from 2 treatments, but occasionally 1 will do.

Pearl Laser Results
Pearl can take up to 3 months to see the final result. For our patients with acne scarring, we prefer using the Pearl Fractional. The Fractional makes tiny holes into the dermis and forces a new growth of collagen, therefore, plumping the acne scars and making them appear less visible and sometimes completely gone. The Pearl will give you some result because it builds collagen as well, but you need a laser that works a little deeper in the skin. The Pearl works on more superficial skin issues.
