I believe you should prep the skin for Pearl or any other laser. My preference is the Melarase set of creams to exfoliate and prep the pigment cells. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles
What Skin Care Products Do I Use to Prep for Pearl?

Melarase creams for hyperpigmentation prior to Pearl laser
No specific skin care required in preparation for Pearl laser which is an excellent treatment for sun damage.
The Pearl laser (not fractional), is excellent for sun damage. No special skin prep is required. The technique is well tolerated and resurfacing is usually complete in 5 days.
