Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing: Named the #1 Anti-Aging Breakthrough by WebMD
The goal of laser skin resurfacing is simple: replace damaged skin with new, fresh skin. Techniques for skin resurfacing have made enormous advances, allowing nearly everyone to achieve close to flawless complexions.How it Works
Fractional laser procedure is performed in a single treatment with 3-5 days of patient downtime. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out lines, wrinkles and scars, remove brown spots and other irregularities. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time. With fractional laser treatment, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner. Many systems allow for light, moderate or deep laser resurfacing.
The primary targets of laser skin resurfacing include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles of the face, especially around the upper lip, cheeks and forehead
- Loose eyelid skin
- Crow's feet around the eyes Pucker marks (smoker's lines) and frown lines
- Brown spots and splotchy, uneven skin tone
- Scars, especially acne scars
- Loose skin around the neck and jowls

What you can expect from fractional laser resurfacing?
The procedure is performed in the office with a topical anesthetic cream that is applied 30-40 minutes before the procedure begins as well as some mild oral pain medication. There is little to no pain associated with the procedure – most patients say they feel warmth similar to sunburn. After about 3-5 days, your will wear make-up and go back to work.
Fractional resurfacing treatment produces a dramatic effect on the skin: Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines, noticeably improves skin tone and texture, stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin.
The results are long-term and, with proper sun protection, can persist for many years. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others – such as new collagen formation – build up gradually and become more evident over time. Therefore, most people look even better 3-5 months after the procedure.
