Fractional laser resurfacing is a popular technique for the treatment of the clinical changes that often affect the skin, due to aging or environmental factors. Characteristics such as photoaging and loss of facial texture/elasticity can be eliminated with the use of fractional laser systems. Fractional laser resurfacing is a skin resurfacing method that delivers focused laser light, into specific zones of the skin.
How it Works
Laser beams vaporize the upper layers of damaged skin to a precise depth of penetration, treating only a fraction of the skin rather than the entire surface area. The beam creates microscopic treatment channels, but does not affect the surrounding tissue. Since only a fraction of the tissues are exposed to laser therapy, healing occurs at a faster rate.
Depth of resurfacing is adjusted based on the skin’s condition, and the desired outcome. The improvements achieved in this procedure are quicker and more noticeable than in less aggressive options, but require about a week of downtime in order to heal.
What it Treats
Fractional laser resurfacing is a safe and effective way to diminish wrinkles, scars and pigment problems. It can also be used to correct sun damage.
Fractional laser skin resurfacing unmasks a better skin surface, with enhanced tone, texture, smoothness, and tightness. Collagen is stimulated, leading to continued improvement in the months that follow.
Topical creams and ointments may be applied after treatment to help the healing process along. Benefits can be seen after just one treatment, but it often takes 4 to 5 sessions to gain optimal results.
If your goal is to achieve noticeable improvements in skin conditions such as pigment changes, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity, with only minimal downtime, fractional laser resurfacing is the ideal treatment for you.
