What is Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
Fractional laser resurfacing is a type of aesthetic laser treatment that can bring patients the results of a more intense treatment without the extended downtime that comes with it. By targeting only small columns of skin at a time, this treatment can bring patients excellent results without significant discomfort.
A series of fractional laser resurfacing sessions can help patients treat:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Fine lines
- Sun damage
This non-invasive treatment can be used on nearly any area of the body, including the hands, feet, neck, and chest.
How Does it Work?
Before treatment begins, a topical anesthetic is applied to the surface of the treatment area to improve patient comfort. Once the area has become adequately numbed, fractional laser energy is delivered to it. This energy creates microcolumns in the skin that jump-starts the body’s healing process. This healing process increases blood flow and collagen production in the treatment area, enriching and rejuvenating the skin there.
Because only small microcolumns of skin are targeted with this laser, the majority of the surrounding skin is left untreated and unharmed. This helps drastically decrease the recovery time associated with the procedure, improving patient comfort in the weeks after. Typically, a series of treatments are needed for patients to achieve dramatic skin rejuvenation and resurfacing results.
Am I a Candidate?
Nearly any man or woman interested in improving the appearance of skin imperfections or the overall complexion of their face, neck, hands, or body is a potential candidate for a fractional laser resurfacing treatment. Any patients that would like to undergo this treatment must first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of our medical staff. During this consultation, a member of our team will take into account the current condition of your skin, medical history, and aesthetic goals in order to decide if this treatment is right for you.
