Of all the methods which can reverse the signs of aging, there is no better treatment than fractional laser skin resurfacing. Many dermatological and cosmetic skin conditions can be improved with fractional laser skin resurfacing. This latest laser treatment is far more effective than any cream, lotion or potion currently available. The laser fractional therapy also is more superior to any of the other procedures like dermabrasion, chemical peeling and drug therapy.
The most common system is the Pixel, which uses Pixelated 2940nm wavelength Erbium:YAG Laser. The laser creates thousands of tiny dots that penetrate the skin. This produces thousands of micro-injury sites without disturbing the surrounding tissue. These micro-injured areas start the process of healing as collagen remodels, skin tightens and the skin texture improves – giving the patient "new skin". Over a course of treatments the effect on the skin can be as dramatic as traditional Laser Resurfacing techniques, without the downtime.
Fractional Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing: A simple treatment approach that promotes skin coagulation without requiring costly preparation and cleanup, yet delivers excellent aesthetic results with minimal redness or swelling.
Fractional Ablative Skin Resurfacing: Deep skin resurfacing that lets you control ablation depths for single-procedure outcomes that get people back to their regular activity in as little as two days. The results rival those of fractional CO2laser treatment, with fewer complications, less pain and faster recovery.
Combination Fractional Ablative & Fractional Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing: This skin resurfacing procedure uses a combination of ablative and non-ablative fractional lasers. The combination treatment offers a same-day approach to allow the tailoring of depth, coagulation, and ablation to an individual's needs - helping to maximize treatment outcomes while minimizing downtime.
Usually treatment takes around 30 – 45 minutes for full face and neck. Your skin will be cleansed and prepared with microdermabrasion. Using the advanced Pixel system there is no need for anaesthesia and the treatment is very comfortable.
It's very important to check that the laser system used by your practitioner is FDA-approved. Laser Skin Resurfacing technologies are more invasive than other light based technologies and should only be conducted by fully qualified Doctors. Make sure that your doctor spends time to answer all your questions and the staff is supportive and helpful when you need them too.
