Laser (Fractional) Skin Resurfacing
Nothing is as beautiful as soft, smooth, healthy skin.
Unfortunately, our skin is subject to numerous experiences that leave it less than perfect.
Time, heredity and gravity all do their part to create fine lines and wrinkles especially around the mouth and eyes. Continues exposure to the sun and smoking are known to significantly accelerate the development of these natural signs of aging.
Laser Skin Resurfacing is a method to correct these issues without the downtime that is associated with more aggressive treatments. Fractional Skin Treatments deliver light in an array of narrow focused “microbeams” to create columns of heat within the skin. These microbeams penetrate deep into the dermis for the most effective, long-term results obtainable. The heated tissue within the columns starts a natural healing process that forms new, healthy tissue. This results in a decrease in sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring and a fresher, more youthful skin tone and texture. The Fractional approach stimulates quick healing, while leaving your skin’s surface intact, with no lasting redness.
Depending on the size of the area treated, one treatment will last from 15-30 minutes. After a treatment you may experience lingering redness, warmth, swelling or tightness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of treatment.
The number of treatments varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of the condition, your skin type and your desired results. Fractional Skin Rejuvenation produces a gradual remodeling of collagen within the skin. Most indications seem to respond after only 3-6 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart. Improvements in the appearance of your skin will continue 6-12 months after the last treatment.
