Fractional Skin Resurfacing is the latest, cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology for getting rid of wrinkles with skin resurfacing. Fractional laser skin resurfacing is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional skin resurfacing (such as CO2 laser) that can be very invasive and require considerable downtime. Fractional Skin Resurfacing targets the aging skin. It is used to treat the following: Scars (including acne), Age Spots, Aging Skin, Sun Damage, Melasma, Enlarged Pores, Fine Line (especially around the mouth and eyes), Birthmarks, and Stretch Marks. Fractional Skin Resurfacing can also rejuvenate the Neck, Chest, and Hands to improve texture and tone. Fractional Skin Resurfacing typically requires four sessions approximately four weeks apart and one needs to avoid all retinol type products for 5-7 prior and be very protective with suncreen and retonols in the week prior.
Until now, two varieties of laser treatment were available for cosmetic enhancement–ablative and non-ablative. Traditional ablative lasers, which literally means vaporization at a very high temperature, are very effective at destroying unwanted tissue but may have significant side effects and require a lengthy healing period. Non-fractional non-ablative lasers on the other hand, are very safe and require almost no healing time, but may involve numerous treatments over many months to achieve only modest results. The Palomar LUX 1540 laser combines the potency of ablative lasers with the gentle safety of non-ablative lasers to treat a variety of cosmetic conditions.
