Also, what is the difference in using a Pearl laser (or other laser) to improve complexion vs a chemical peel?
i have not used the pearl laser myself, nor do i know of anyone who has it. i have taken a look at the wavelength and specs for the laser and read some of the MD comments and i can't say that i am very impressed. its tough to get good results with the minimally invasive lasers and pearl sounds like it may be a little less effective than fraxel. i prefer the active fx for skin resurfacing. it gets the job done in one session, as opposed to 3 to 5 with fraxel. i don't really like chemical peels very much - they are more destructive than lasers for the most part and you can't control a chemical peel like you can a laser.
