Details for Case #12433
This 46 year old woman came to Marina Plastic Surgery Associates seeking a solution for skin discoloration and sun damage on her face. She wanted a more uniform skin tone, and came to use wanting to learn more about the longer-lasting results Los Angeles laser skin rejuvenation treatments can provide.
During her consultation, she and her treatment provider decided that Cutera® Pearl was the best laser treatment for her. She was an excellent candidate for Pearl treatment since she wanted to treat her entire face. Pearl laser treatments correct signs of aging and sun damage by treating the entire surface of the skin and encouraging new collagen growth in the deeper skin layer. Pearl typically only takes 1 to 2 treatments to renew the skin, while some other laser treatments may require up to 6 office visits.
During her treatment, the laser delivered heat to the deeper layers of her skin where it stimulated new collagen growth. Recovery was comfortable and convenient. She needed to keep her skin moisturized for 3 to 4 days and limit sun exposure on the freshly treated skin.
Her treatment and recovery went very well. These photos show before the treatment and just 1 month after the treatment. New collagen growth often continues for the next few months which will cause her results to improve further. She is pleased with the more even complexion she now enjoys after Pearl laser treatments.
