At The Private Clinic we have 2 main laser skin resurfacing treatments: Pixel and Pearl. Laser Skin Resurfacing clears and rejuvenates damaged, discoloured and uneven skin as well as lines and wrinkles. Pear Laser is also a very effective treatment for pigmentation, age spots and brown sun spots. There are several options available, from moderate to complete rejuvenation.
You don't have to put up with problem skin anymore thanks to our non-invasive Pixel and Pearl Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments. We use laser skin treatments to typically treat the face but we can also treat other areas of the body, such as the neckline (décolletage) with Pearl laser skin resurfacing.
It is important to explore and discuss both options because although Pixel is more well-known, Pearl treatments may offer a more suitable treatment and result for you.
There are a number of common skin complaints that can be treated with our laser skin resurfacing treatments - Pixel and Pearl:
- Brown Spots
- Sun Damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne Scars
- Wrinkles and lines
Not everyone wants to opt for surgery with its associated risks and lengthy downtime and this is where Laser Skin Resurfacing comes in!
Rejuvenating your skin can be easy with our Pixel and Pearl treatments. Pixel is an ablative treatment and works by taking away the top layer of the skin and stimulating new skin growth. Pearl treatments are ablative as well but Pearl Fractional and Pearl Fusion (as it is a combination treatment) go deeper than Pearl to achieve more extensive results.
The Pixel Laser is a high-energy beam of light that is directed onto damaged or ageing areas of skin. The laser removes the epidermis and upper dermis triggering the body’s natural healing process which stimulates the growth of healthy new skin. It is a targeted laser treatment meaning it works on your problem areas, leaving the rest of your skin untouched. Pixel can be used on most skin types. A course of treatments will be necessary but once completed the results are permanent.
Pearl is the latest generation of skin resurfacing technology by Cutera (a leading laser medical device manufacturer). It is the most effective single session laser skin treatment for lines, wrinkles, sun damaged skin, and uneven skin tone without the lengthy downtime associated with traditional Erbium and C02 laser procedures. We offer 3 different Pearl treatments, with different benefits.
Here at The Private Clinic we offer:
- Pearl Laser Resurfacing
- Pearl Fractional Laser Resurfacing
- Pearl Fusion
Each treatment delivers a unique blend of treatment and results. Your suitability can be determined at a consultation. Peal laser resurfacing may suit people with finer wrinkles and damage, while Pearl Fusion offers the deepest and most extensive treatment.
Both of our procedures can completely rejuvenate and revitalise your skin. You may only need a small area targeted or you may benefit from a full face treatment. After treatment the texture of the skin is visibly smoother, while lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, upper chest and hands are dramatically reduced. If you have had laser skin resurfacing for other reasons, your problem areas will have been stripped away, leaving you with fresh, more even skin. Some of our patients have even stopped using anti-aging creams and as much moisturiser after having a skin laser resurfacing treatment.
Pearl - depending on the treatment, full recovery will take between 5 and 8 days.
Pixel - each treatment requires little downtime and it's possible to return to work straight after a treatment session but you may prefer to spend one or two days at home.
