Services - Fractional Skin Resurfacing

 

Fractional Skin Resurfacing dramatically improves wrinkles, scars & sun-damaged skin with fractional light-based resurfacing.

 

What is Fractional Skin Resurfacing?
Fractional Skin Resurfacing is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little to no downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. Laser Rejuvenation uses a laser microbeam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. And because only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, healing time is quick and downtime is short.

 

What conditions can be treated with Laser Rejuvenation?


Laser Rejuvenation can be used to improve a wide variety of skin conditions, but is used most for:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines

  • Post-traumatic scars

  • Acne scars

  • Age spots

  • Sun spots

  • Melasma

  • Aging and sun-damaged skin

  • FDA approved to treat scars & stretch marks

 

How does the Fractional Skin Resurfacing work?
Fractional Skin Resurfacing uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded  by areas of healthy, untreated skin., zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing  process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities.

 

Who should consider a Fractional Skin Resurfacing treatment?
If you are looking for younger looking skin, or to improve scars, wrinkles, or sun damage in a comfortable treatment with a fast recovery, then you may be an ideal candidate for Laser Rejuvenation.

 

What areas can be treated?
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.

 

What is a Fractional Skin Resurfacing procedure like?
Fractional Skin Resurfacing is a fast, comfortable procedure done in our location.  The procedure normally takes 15 - 30 minutes depending on the condition and the size of the area treated. A numbing cream may be applied in advance to aid in comfort during the procedure.

 

How many Fractional Skin Resurfacing treatments will I need?
Laser Rejuvenation is typically done in a series of 3 - 5 treatments, spaced 4 - 6 weeks apart, depending on your needs.

 

What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience a mild redness, resembling a light sunburn sensation. Complete healing takes only about 1 – 3 days and most patients can get back to work and apply makeup within 1 - 2 days after the treatment.  Some bronzing of the treated area is normal.  Also, some mild swelling of the treated area is expected.

 

What special after-treatment care will I need? It is important to follow all instructions which may include some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be more sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. You should always use a minimum of SPF 45 sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
