Your skin renews itself continually, shedding the uppermost layer. However, many skin concerns, particularly those associated with aging and sun exposure, are related to damaged cells in deeper layers. Resurfacing is a medical technique that removes damaged skin to a specific depth, encouraging the development of healthy new skin. There are several types of resurfacing procedures, with one of the most popular being fractional resurfacing.
Lasers are especially fast and efficient, and procedures can be performed with exacting precision. The technique has increased dramatically in popularity and versatility since fractional laser technology was introduced. These devices deliver the same powerful laser energy, but the beam is splintered into a multitude of tiny beamlets. This makes the procedure much gentler and recovery faster.
1540 fractional resurfacing
The Icon 1540nm laser system, from Palomar, is one of the most advanced devices on the market. It is an excellent option for laser resurfacing and a variety of other laser therapies. Our facility is a respected national training center for this technology, and members of our team frequently instruct physicians, plastic surgeons, and other medical professionals in the proper use.
Fractional CO2 laser
CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser resurfacing was one of the first dermatological treatments to provide excellent results in pigmentation problems, fine lines and wrinkles, some scars, improving skin texture, and more. Early versions of this laser also involved considerable discomfort and downtime. We use a state-of-the-art fractionated CO2 laser for a safe, gentle treatment without compromising results.
Frequently Asked Questions
What skin conditions can be treated with fractional lasers?
This procedure can improve large pores, uneven skin tone, visible blood vessels, excess facial redness, scarring, fine lines, sun damage, signs of aging, and more.
Which laser is best?
They are both excellent systems with unique qualities, making each system “best” in different situations. After a complete evaluation, we will recommend the ideal treatment for you.
What can I expect during and after the procedure?
Laser resurfacing is a comfortable procedure, generally completed in about half of an hour. There is very little downtime, though you may notice some redness or pinkness for several days, depending on the intensity of the treatment.
Am I a good candidate for laser resurfacing?
With our cutting edge technology, and highly skilled, properly certified practitioners, the procedure is generally safe for all skin types and tones. However, each patient is unique, so we cannot recommend any procedure without an evaluation and consultation first.
