What is Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing is an amazing laser-treatment that effectively changes the texture of all skin types and colors.

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing is an FDA-approved fractional laser technology to help restore your skin to its original, perfect texture and achieves smoother, fresher, younger looking skin, improved tone and texture, smaller pores, erasing of unwanted brown spots, acne scars, and surgical scars, and reduces fine line lines and wrinkles.

Explained in the simplest terms, Fractional laser skin resurfacing tricks your skin into creating new skin to replace the damaged, or targeted areas, resulting in natural skin rejuvenation that takes years off your appearance.

Fractional skin resurfacing is a safe, non-invasive laser skin treatment that removes years from your appearance without the risks, side effects or prolonged downtime of other procedures.

How does Fraxel work?

The technology behind Fraxel is as revolutionary as the results it delivers. Unlike other laser treatments, Fraxel skin resurfacing treatments are able to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin?s surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. Fraxel stimulates the body?s own healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.

By design, Fraxel skin resurfacing treatments can target between 5 to 50 percent of the skin?s surface, leaving the remaining 50 to 95 percent available to quickly help heal the treated areas. Since Fraxel treatments are so precise, it?s safe and effective to use on even delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands, in addition to the face.

You can expect two levels of results; immediate and progressive. Immediately after the initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter, and tone will start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next three to six months, as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal.


Do Fractional treatments hurt?

We try to make Fractional laser treatments as comfortable as possible for our patients. A topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure, and ice packs are used on the treatment area during the Fractional laser procedure to minimize discomfort.

After the treatment, most patients report feeling a sun-burned sensation which usually dissipates within a few hours.

What side-effects can I expect after treatment and how long will they last?

Following a Fractional treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling. The intensity of these side-effects will be dependent on how aggressive your treatment was, your adherence to the recommended post-treatment practices (i.e. applying ice, keeping treated area moisturized, etc.) , and what your unique healing characteristics are. However, everyone’s skin is unique, and some patients have greater than expected reactions to less aggressive treatments, and others have fewer side-effects to more aggressive treatments.

Other temporary side-effects can include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed appearance. You will be given specific instructions about what to expect for your particular treatment and how to minimize side-effects.
