At The John Bull Center For Cosmetic Surgery & Laser MediSpa in Naperville, we strive to offer patients the latest and most effective laser treatments to help them combat signs of aging and look and feel their best.
We are happy to offer our Chicago-area patients Pearl Fractional Laser treatments, which boast effective anti-aging benefits with less downtime.
Pearl Fractional Lasers control thermal damage and are an advancement on lasers that have been used in the past. To learn more about Pearl Fractional Lasers and how they can improve your appearance, contact The John Bull Center today to schedule an appointment.
Why Pearl Fractional?
Pearl Fractional Laser treatments can help you achieve visible results in a single treatment, not several.
Pearl Fractional Laser treatments also aggressively combat signs of photodamage and various other imperfections. Long-term results are achieved from a single treatment, and one week of downtime is typical for most patients.
How Does It Work?
Pearl Fractional Lasers travel deep to vaporize and remove damaged tissue. At the same time, the laser coagulates and heats surrounding tissue, which decreases bleeding.
After your treatment, tissue starts the process of healing itself. As time goes by, new collagen is produced to decrease the effects of photodamage.
Pearl Fractional offers patients improved skin tone and texture. And you will notice that your complexion is smoother and brighter.
What Is the Fractional in Pearl Fractional?
Fractional therapy is a treatment that only targets a fraction of your skin. During Pearl Fractional treatment, lasers create miniature holes deep into your skin. Damaged tissue is safely removed and surrounding skin remains unharmed.
This approach reduces recovery time and boosts your body’s ability to create new collagen. This plumps skin and reverses photoaging.
How many treatments should I have?
The majority of patients can expect dramatic improvement after one treatment. At The John Bull Center, Dr. Bull and our team will meet with one-on-one to discuss your treatment plan and what you can expect. And we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Am I a Candidate For Pearl Fractional Treatment?
Those with skin tones that are light to medium are good candidates for Pearl Fractional, as are those who suffer from skin imperfections that result from aging and damage from the sun.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Pearl Fractional Lasers can treat your entire face. It is a great treatment for delicate areas around the eyes and mouth. These areas are often the first parts of your face where signs of aging appear – and they can be difficult to treat with out-of-date methods.
Does Pearl Fractional Treatment Hurt?
Patients have said treatment resembles feeling a series of quick, hot pinches. Numbing medication may be used to help ease discomfort. At The Joh Bull Center, we’ll work with you to develop treatment that is as pain-free as possible.
When Can I Wear Makeup Again?
Because patients see improvements just a week after treatment, makeup can be used five days after treatment. Patients will see their results continue to improve as the weeks and months pass.
Your skin may appear sunburned and there may be some swelling, but these fade quickly. Our patients have reported no major discomfort after their treatments.
For post-treatment care, ointment can be applied to the skin for about five days. Patients also should stay out of the sun or wear clothing that protects them from the sun.
Pearl Fractional can be used in conjunction with other treatments. Doctor Bull and our team will evaluate you to determine which other treatments you can tolerate and which you should stay away from.
