Laser treatment for acne scars
Correct the irregular skin texture
PEARL semi-ablative laser is a treatment of reduced convalescence that combines security and softness. It is particularly efficient to remove acne scars and erase aging marks on the skin (fine lines, brown spots, irregular texture).
PEARL laser sends wave impulses based on a predetermined pattern, which sprays a thin layer of epidermis (30-50 microns), while profoundly warming up the underlying tissue. The coagulation of the superficial skin layer acts as a natural bandage, which accelerates the healing of the skin and protects it against infection. At the 3rd or 4th day, the protective layer naturally exfoliates itself, leaving behind a new, glowing and rejuvenated skin, free of its superficial imperfections (fine lines, brown spots, acne scars, etc.).

Here are some examples BEFORE/AFTER illustrating the efficiency of the treatments.
PEARL laser technology
PEARL laser, by its revolutionary conception, opens a door that was previously restricted to traditional ablative treatments (CO2, Erbium). Even though efficient, these aggressive treatments required a longer convalescence period. Thanks to PEARL laser, you will obtain impressive results. The treatments are done smoothly and safely.
They are so efficient that only one to two sessions are necessary to surpass traditional photo-rejuvenation technologies (IPL, Pulsed light, etc.). Plus, you will not have to spend a long convalescence period.
In sum, here is a laser treatment that takes 25 minutes, yielding impressive results, that only requires 3 to 4 days of “social” convalescence.
During the treatment, the impulses will cause a small pinching sensation of mild to moderated intensity. An anesthetic cream is applied at least 30 minutes before the treatment to minimize any discomfort. The treatment only lasts 20 to 30 minutes.
Number of treatments
Many patients will only need one treatment to obtain the desired results; however, some patients will need two to three treatments.
After the treatments
Just like for sunburns, you will need to properly hydrate your skin and apply a special ointment to accelerate the healing process and prevent complications. It is very important to avoid being exposed to sunlight during the healing period, since the use of sunscreen is not recommended during that period.
The results are visible 4 to 5 days after the treatment (after the peeling of the damaged skin). Patients can then start wearing makeup normally. The skin will look fresh, glowing and glossy; a true perfection!
Answers to your questions
WHAT IS A “SOCIAL CONVALESCENCE”?
It does not refer to an in-bed convalescence! You can run your usual occupations since there is no pain (a slight discomfort appears after the treatments) and the risk of complications is very minimal. However, it is preferable to avoid “public” social activities (work, going out) for 3 to 4 days because of the redness/pinkness of the face as well as the brownish peeling that follows (similar to a sunburn).
WHO CAN BE TREATED?
Anyone presenting a moderately sun-damaged skin (brown spots, fine lines) or showing skin imperfections (acne scars) is the perfect candidate for PEARL.
