Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive, non-ablative treatment that stimulates natural collagen to improve fine lines and wrinkles, scaring, acne, stretch marks while improving overall skin tone and texture.
Hundreds of micro-beams create deep micro-columns of thermal tissue damage, causing a controlled wound. Trauma to the skin is what creates natural collagen. Fractionated lasers leave small gaps of untreated skin throughout the treated areas. When injured tissue is surrounded with healthy tissue, it heals faster without complications and minimal downtime.
"I received laser treatments to resurface my skin from chronic acne and the Titan™ treatments to tighten the skin. Then, I received Sculptra™ injections. The improvements are unbelievable. I look at least 10 years younger! I'm sooo happy!" — D. C.Read More »
After treatment, the skin looks and feels sunburned experiencing redness and puffiness for about 48 hours. You will need to wear protective clothing, sunscreen and limit sun exposure for a few days afterward.
Treatments are more affective if done in a series of sessions done 4 to 6 weeks apart. Natural collagen growth takes several weeks and months. Some patients may see the desired results after only one or two treatments.
Yes, patients may choose to have a Fractional treatment followed by separate visits for Genesis, Titan, or injectables. We will customize an appropriate treatment plan for you.
Fractional lasers combine the effectiveness of the traditional CO2 (carbon dioxide) lasers. Delivering powerful results without the traditionally harsh side effects. This allows much faster healing time than that with more aggressive CO2 lasers. Fractional lasers are not associated with the increased risk of loss of pigment or scarring that can occur with CO2 lasers.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Patients with wrinkles, mild to moderate sun damage and most skin tones are ideal candidates.
