Resurfacing Laser Treatment
The Fractional Laser is a revolutionary laser treatment which helps you take years off your appearance. Fractional photothermolysis involves treating a fraction of skin at a time, without affecting the surrounding tissue. It can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin (dermis). The amount of skin treated can be varied, making it suitable for all skin conditions and colors. Furthermore, results can be achieved without the downtime, pain, and complications of traditional lasers. These laser columns stimulate the production of younger, smoother, and healthier skin to replace damaged tissue.
During the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may feel as though it is sunburned. The skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two, and as you continue treatment, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat.
Clinical studies suggest that, on average, an effective treatment regimen will require 3 to 5 sessions, spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending on your condition and schedule, you and the physician may choose to space treatment sessions further apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement usually visible in 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allows for complete healing and the production of new collagen and elastin to replace damaged tissue.
It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is treated, continue to protect and care for it as described above. Your physician will give you specific guidelines to follow, based on your individual needs.
