Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center offers Pearl Fractional treatments to the residents of Pasadena, CA. We also service Los Angeles, CA. Pearl Fractional treatments help reduce the effects of aging and sun damage. By treating the deeper layers of the skin, these treatments remove tiny columns of damaged tissue. Once the damaged tissue is removed by the laser, the body begins producing new collagen, resulting in healthier, fuller skin.
How can Pearl Fractional treatments by Dr. Rigor improve my appearance?
Those of us who live in Southern California spend a lot of time outdoors. As a result, many people in Pasadena and Los Angeles, CA have sun damaged skin. With age and as a result of sun damage, the skin loses collagen, and the body’s natural collagen production slows down. As a result, the skin loses elasticity and strength. By removing damaged tissue and stimulating your body’s natural collagen production, Pearl Fractional treatments build your collagen levels, giving your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.
What happens during the Pearl Fractional treatment at Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center?
Dr. Rigor may apply a topical anesthesia to help you remain comfortable during your Pearl Fractional treatment. He administers the laser energy in short bursts, and you may feel a sensation that is similar to snapping a rubber band on your skin. You may also experience a mild warming sensation as the treatment stimulates your body’s collagen production.
How long is the healing period after the Pearl Fractional treatment by Dr. Rigor?
In general, patients have one week of downtime after their Pearl Fractional treatments. Three to four days after your Pearl Fractional treatment, you see your new, healthy skin for the first time. After two weeks, your skin is noticeably smoother and softer.
