Fractional Laser Resurface — Ablative Co2 Laser
This technology is radically different from the classic standard laser resurfacing, which removes the entire upper layer of skin. Fractional resurfacing does not impact the entire surface of the skin, but instead punches micro-holes in the skin. The holes are separated by very small areas of untreated skin and thus only a “fraction” of the skin is treated during the resurfacing.
- Downtime: Minimal
- Pain Level: Minimal
- Results Duration: Long-Lasting
Fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, discoloration, and scarring
Swelling, redness, and warmth
Primarily used on the face
Most patients need at least 2 treatments
Handpiece creates micro-punctures in the skin
Topical anesthetic may be applied prior to treatment
Reduced signs of aging, scarring, and discoloration
Full results appear within 3-6 months
The end result is a decreased chance of complications and much less down time. The trade-off is that the procedure is not as effective as a full resurfacing procedure and often requires 2 treatments, spaced 3-4 months apart, for significant improvement. Individuals with evidence of sun damage including brown spots, flakiness, textural irregularities, large pores, and wrinkles will benefit from this procedure.
