Fractional laser resurfacing is a safe and effective treatment for lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. Fractional laser resurfacing allows us to provide a more comprehensive treatment for our patients, and that means better results and a more rejuvenated appearance. Fractional Laser Resurfacing allows us to treat the undesirable textural changes of facial aging that are not adequately addressed with cosmetic surgery, neurotoxins, or fillers – especially those areas around the eyes and mouth. The result is a smoother and tighter skin surface with lasting results.
Consider the Benefits
The brand new Fractional Laser Resurfacing is a fractional, single treatment solution for the improvement (treatment) of a variety of skin conditions, including dyspigmentation, photoaging, lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, irregular skin texture, and acne scarring.
There is a growing demand among patients and practitioners for a more effective treatment to address wrinkles and uneven texture while minimizing the recovery time. Utilizing a unique (2790nm) wavelength Fractional Laser Resurfacing provides the technology to meet these demands – maximizing the cosmetic benefit while reducing the downtime.
In non-ablative resurfacing, fractional lasers deliver heat into the skin through thousands of tiny, deep columns known as microthermal treatment zones. The treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells and deposits heat deep into the dermis to tighten skin and stimulate collagen remodeling.
This non-invasive procedure is a good choice for the treatment of facial wrinkles. It can be performed in a doctor’s office in less than an hour. Recovery time is minimal.
Who is a candidate for Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
Patients with light-to-medium skin tones and skin imperfections due to aging and sun damage will benefit from a Fractional Laser Resurfacing treatment.
What areas of the face can be treated?
Fractional Laser Resurfacing can be used on the entire face and is uniquely effective in treating the delicate periorbital (around the eyes) and perioral (around the mouth) areas. These areas often show the first signs of aging and can be the most challenging to treat.
How does a Fractional Laser Resurfacing treatment feel?
Most patients describe the treatment as a series of fast, hot pinches. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin prior to treatment to alleviate most discomfort. If needed, our doctor can call in a prescription medication to make the treatment more comfortable.
When will I see results? How soon can I wear make-up?
Many patients see improvement one week after treatment. Maximum results are visible in one to three months. Patients may apply make-up five days after treatment.
Are there any restrictions on my activity after a Fractional Laser Resurfacing procedure?
After treatment, the skin looks sunburned and may be slightly swollen. Patients report little or no discomfort post-treatment. During post-care, patients apply ointment to the skin for 5-8 days and should limit sun exposure and wear protective clothing.
Can Fractional Laser Resurfacing be part of combination therapy?
Many patients have a Fractional Laser Resurfacing treatment in combination with other existing cosmetic therapies. These include other Candela IPL and light procedures, such as Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Candela Laser Genesis and Candela IPL. Discuss combination treatment options with your practitioner.
How does Fractional Laser Resurfacing compare to other fractional laser treatments?
Fractional Laser Resurfacing’s unique laser wavelength offers a safe and effective treatment to reverse the signs of aging. This combination gives patients dramatic results in a single treatment with a quick, one-two week recovery period.
