An innovative laser treatment that offers a superior solution for rejuvenating and resurfacing the skin. It is used effectively to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne and other scars, stretch marks, enlarge pores, skin pigmentation and discoloration, sun damage, and uneven skin texture.

How it works
With fractional laser resurfacing the laser beam is broken up or fractionated into many small micro beams which are separated so that when they strike the skin surface small areas of the skin between the beams are not hit by the laser and left intact. These small areas of untreated skin promote a much more rapid recovery and healing. The small areas treated by the fractional micro beams, cause sufficient laser injury to promote new collagen production and resultant facial skin rejuvenation. The treatment duration usually takes 30 minutes or less per session.

What to expect after the treatment
Immediately after the procedure, the face swells up slightly and appears somewhat red. Patients notice immediate softening of wrinkles, fine lines and scars. Thousands of tiny white dots about the size of hair strand can only be seen close-up. Swelling subsides in 1 to 2 hours. The white dots become darker and disappear by third or fourth day.

You will not see the results of the procedure until 2 months AFTER the treatment is performed. Your body is sending collagen, blood, water and oxygen to the face to tighten the skin. Because the treatment facilitates the natural body cycle, the procedure takes a while to see the results, but the treatment is more long term. You may need more than 1 treatment depending on the condition or desired results.
