About Fractional Laser Resurfacing

This laser procedure is designed to remove damaged skin at any age. Reaching further down than the epidermis, where the surface skin is thin and delicate, fractional laser resurfacing is performed with a device able to penetrate deep, allowing treatment to all of the facial areas.

Even in the areas where your skin is the thinnest, laser resurfacing effectively targets pigmentation problems like sun damage and age spots, as well as other visible signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles, and creases.

Fractional lasers deliver light in a unique pattern specifically designed to cover a large surface area of your skin with energy. Unlike a direct laser beam, fractional lasers deliver such impressive results because of this.

How to Prepare for Fractional Laser Resurfacing?

Before your fractional laser treatment, customize a skin care plan with a certified skin specialist. Pre-treat your skin with a bleaching cream (eg, hydroquinone). Wash your face gently with warm water and soap before your treatment, and remove all of your jewelry and makeup. Feel free to take photographs for a before and after fractional laser treatment comparison.

NOTE: Call to talk to a cosmetic specialist before the appointment about rescheduling if you have open sores or a skin infection.

Fractional Laser Resurfacing FAQs

A fractionated laser treatment or fractional laser therapy is a non-invasive skin care procedure that works by using laser technology to disperse the light energy into thousands of microscopic treatment zones. Used to target one trouble zone of your skin at a time, fractional laser resurfacing devices are able to cover more area than a targeted laser beam.
Flaking, dry skin, scaling, swelling, pigmentation, acne breakouts, and bacterial infections are the most commonly reported side effects of fractional laser therapy.
When compared to laser surgery, laser fractional therapy is considered a non-invasive way to get comparable results. Over time, you may find that fractional laser treatment is a better option for your specific needs than surgery as many people achieve satisfying long-term results.
