Fractional Laser Resurfacing Q & A

What is fractional laser resurfacing?

Fractional laser resurfacing is a treatment that rebuilds and improves the surface layer of your skin. Your skin’s surface layer is the visible part of your skin and is responsible for the stark appearance of many skin flaws and blemishes. 

The surface of your skin includes many dead skin cells and cellular damage that is not discernible to the naked eye. By removing it, you can reveal a fresh layer of renewed cells below. Fractional laser resurfacing results in smoother-looking skin with less noticeable scars, wrinkles, and marks. 

During the treatment, the fractional laser delivers fine beams of concentrated light to your skin’s surface. The beams coagulate your tissue, causing a natural healing response to occur. As your skin heals itself, it also improves in quality with renewed cells. 

What does fractional laser resurfacing treat?

Fractional laser resurfacing can diminish many of the most common surface-level skin flaws. The treatment can facilitate the continued healing of old scars and spots that have become a permanent part of your skin. A fractional laser resurfacing treatment at Medical Laser Therapeutics can work against:

  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Neck bands
  • Jowls
  • Lip lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead ridges
  • Eyebags
  • Hyperpigmentation

Thanks to the new collagen and elastin growth that starts after a fractional laser resurfacing treatment, you can enjoy long-lasting results that improve with time. Your aesthetic specialist may recommend a series of more than one treatment for the best possible result.

While the face is the most popular targeted area for laser resurfacing, you can also get the treatment on your chest, neck, arms, hands, and other areas with imperfect skin. 

Am I a good candidate for fractional laser resurfacing?

As with other minimally invasive treatments, you should attend a consultation for fractional laser resurfacing to make sure the treatment aligns with your specific goals and desired outcome. The treatment works for any skin tone, texture, or type, and you can undergo the procedure to experience an improvement at any age. 

If fractional laser resurfacing isn’t your best option for treatment or doesn’t fully align with your goals, the team at Medical Laser Therapeutics can redirect you to another treatment or recommend additional treatments to get alongside fractional laser resurfacing. They might also recommend Botox® for fine lines, dermal fillers for deeper wrinkles, or laser rejuvenation for other skin features.
