Spring weddings, graduations and other events are upon us. Now is a prime time to begin making changes that will help you look and feel better than ever. Having a natural glow and beautiful skin is key to ­maintaining a youthful, attractive appearance, which subsequently gives you more self confidence.

Dr. Mallory Spoor-Baker of Advanced Cosmetic Medicine helps patients achieve this ­confidence with a variety of treatments, including the Pearl™ procedure. “The Pearl treatment renews your skin’s surface and minimizes wrinkles, uneven ­texture and discoloration with only one or two treatments and minimal downtime,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker. “Unlike ­‘fractional’ treatments, Pearl treats the entire face, minimizing the number of required treatments. Typically, only one to two treatments are necessary to renew your skin.”

The Pearl procedure ­combines the impact of ­resurfacing lasers with the ­gentleness and safety of non-invasive procedures to treat aging and sun-damaged skin.

During the procedure, the top layer of skin is treated with pulses of light in a pre-selected pattern. The laser simultaneously sends heat to the deeper layers of skin to provide longer-term benefits. A natural protective dressing forms on the skin to minimize downtime during the restorative process. On day or three or four, this natural ­dressing will peel or slough off, revealing new, healthy, vibrant skin underneath. In a short time, patients will notice overall skin clarity, smoothness and softness – all from a short treatment with a few days of social downtime.

With “social” downtime, patients can continue normal daily activities. However, they may not wish to attend ­important social events because the face appears pink or red – resembling a mild sunburn – for those few days.

The Pearl treatment is not a painful process; it feels like a series of brief pinches. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 ­representing pain, most patients report the treatment feeling like a 2 or 3.

Results are noticeable by the third or fourth day when the superficial tissue has peeled off, revealing fresh, bright, healthy skin underneath.

Some patients may require two treatments spaced ­approximately one month apart to achieve the desired results. Other patients need only one treatment. “You may also choose to have a Pearl treatment combined with other procedures or fillers, such as Laser Genesis or Botox, to achieve optimal results,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker. “Patients of any age with sun damage, uneven skin texture and fine lines and wrinkles can ­benefit from Pearl treatments. The most common age group seeking treatment is between 25 and 60.”
