Fractional Skin Resurfacing Improves Appearance and Texture

Fractionalized Skin Resurfacing Can Eliminate Skin Irregularities

Laser resurfacing uses a high-energy beam of light to damage the upper layer of skin to remove lines, acne scars and discolorations which exposes smoother, fresher layers of skin below. In addition, the laser process stimulates the production of collagen for faster healing and smoother appearance. Laser skin resurfacing is a safe and effective method for reducing or eliminating a variety of imperfections and offers a better result than other types of skin rejuvenation. A number of laser skin resurfacing techniques are available for different needs.

A Painless, Non-Invasive Procedure

We will provide a thorough examination and assessment of your skin to determine the right procedure to improve your skin problems. After preliminary measures are done to prepare the skin, the procedure can begin. An anesthetic cream is applied to the skin to reduce discomfort, and a gel is put on the skin to facilitate the laser action, which sweeps over the skin on indicated areas. A cooling device is used to reduce discomfort during the procedure.

Aftercare For Fractional Resurfacing

You may have a feeling like sunburn on the face for a short period after the procedure, and some swelling may appear, which should resolve in a few days. The skin will have a pinkish look for about 24 hours, and will then turn a bronze color as new epidermal skin begins to form.  Flaking of the skin may also occur during the healing process. We will recommend a moisturizer to help with this problem. Patients should use a sunscreen of SPF 50 or higher when outdoors for several months after the procedure as the skin heals. Multiple treatments may be necessary, and the full results will not be evident for three or four months. After the healing period, you can enjoy facial skin that is smoother and brighter, with reduced lines and imperfections.
