Get Rid of Fine Lines and Wrinkles With Fractional Laser Treatments

Fractional laser treatments combine the best of ablative and non-ablative technologies for superior results and no downtime. Boost collagen and rejuvenate your skin with a personalized treatment package.

What is Fractional Laser Treatment?

Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive, non-ablative laser treatment that stimulates natural collagen to improve fine lines and wrinkles, scaring, acne, and stretch marks while improving overall skin tone and texture. This process is normally called laser resurfacing. It can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, increasing skin firmness and effectively treating skin laxity. It is also an effective option for acne scars, sun damaged skin, uneven skin tone, and more.

How Does Fractional Laser Treatment Work?

During fractional laser treatment, hundreds of laser energy beams create deep micro-columns of thermal tissue damage, causing a controlled wound. Trauma to the skin is what creates natural new collagen. Fractionated lasers leave small gaps of untreated skin throughout the treated area (as the name suggests, they treat only a fraction of the skin) in order to increase collagen production. When injured tissue is surrounded with healthy tissue, it heals faster with minimal downtime or complications. The result of multiple treatments is healthy new skin.

Are There Any Restrictions on My Activity After Laser Treatments?

After treatment, the skin looks and feels sunburned, experiencing redness and puffiness for about 48 hours. You will need to wear protective clothing and sunscreen, and limit sun exposure for a few days afterward. There may be minor peeling after treatment as the top layer of skin flakes off and reveals healthy skin underneath.

Treatments are more effective if done in a series of sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Natural collagen growth takes several weeks and months after treatment. Some patients may see the desired results after only one or two treatments.

Can It Be Part of a Combination Therapy?

Yes, patients may choose to have a fractional treatment followed by separate visits for Genesis, Titan, chemical peels, or injectables. We will customize an appropriate treatment plan for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there downtime with fractional laser treatments?

While there is no required “downtime” following a laser treatment, your face will likely be red and possibly swollen for a few days to a week after treatment. The exact timing will vary from person to person, but you may not want to be seen in public for a couple of days after treatment.

How long should I wait after fractional laser treatment to wash my face?

The next morning is fine to wash your face. Washing your face gently 2 to 3 times a day afterwards will help keep the treated skin clear of any contaminants as well. After washing you should apply a moisturizer without and retinols or harsh additives.

What can I do to heal faster after laser treatment?

Keeping your skin clean and hydrated will significantly help the healing process following your appointment. It is also crucial that you avoid the sun as much as possible for the first few weeks after, in order to allow your skin to heal.

How long will it take for new collagen to form after treatment?

It will likely take between 1 to 3 months for the collagen to fully form after your laser treatment. You will see some initial results immediately, but the full effect will take a few months to show itself. The new collagen built up is not permanent, however, so be aware that you may need additional treatments in the future.

What should you not do prior to a laser treatment?

Avoiding sun exposure for a week prior to your treatment is extremely important in order to minimize the chance of sunburn. Also, keep any “irritating” skin products like retinoids off your face for at least 1 week prior to treatment.

How Does Fractional Laser Compare to Other Treatments?

A fractional laser treatment combines the effectiveness of the traditional CO2 (carbon dioxide) ablative fractional laser with the downtime of non-ablative lasers such as IPL, delivering powerful results without the traditionally harsh side effects. This allows much faster healing time than that of a more aggressive CO2 laser. Fractional lasers are not associated with the increased risk of loss of pigment or scarring that can occur with CO2 laser treatment.

Who is a Good Candidate for Fractional Laser Treatment?

Patients with wrinkles and mild to moderate sun damage are good candidates, as well as most skin tones. Darker skin may require a different approach to treatment. It is also safe for most skin types, but our experienced laser technicians will determine whether laser skin resurfacing is best for your goals.
