I am a 45 year old female. I had the pearl laser 4 days ago (note: I had a late appt. so when I drove home it was dark & nobody saw my red face w/the Aquaphor). The pain of the procedure wasn't too bad due to the numbing cream applied 45 minutes prior to the procedure. The only real... READ MORE

Prepare Yourself

I had the Pearl laser four days ago. It was painful, even with the numbing cream, and my face felt hot and tight for the first 24 hours.

I had pearl fractional for acne scars. I am at week 4 and I do not see much improvement on my scars plus I still see dots on my face from the laser. I am also still red.

Pearl Laser for Acne Scars, Pigmentation, Pores, Fine Lines

First, I must say that I am VERY surprised to see that some people have paid soooo much money for one session. And here I thought that $250 a session (in Southern CA) was expensive. The esthetician (who is an RN) said I would need 2-3 treatments, repeated every 3-4 weeks. My total cost will... READ MORE

Hyperpigmentation Pearl

The results of this treatment would look very good if the Doctor would have gone to my eyelids as most of my skin looks much better.

Nothing but a $900.00 Sunburn!

I had my first Pearl treatment yesterday. I have a four moderate acne scars and some sun damage. I tried punch-excision last year- and it seemed to make some scars worse.

If I knew then what I know now, I wouldn't have done this. When it is over, I am hoping I will change my mind, but at the moment, I feel like I... READ MORE
