Fractional laser treatments are the newest form of laser skin rejuvenation. Utilizing advanced laser technology, it is the treatment of choice for fine lines and improved skin texture and appearance.
Fractional skin resurfacing has revolutionized skin care and is used to treat a number of skin conditions including:
- acne scares
- "crepey" skin texture
- fine lines and wrinkles
- loss of skin elasticity
- skin discolorations
- stretch marks
- sun damaged skin
- surgical or traumatic scars
Unlike earlier generations of skin resurfacing lasers, fractional resurfacing offers results with minimal discomfort and fast recuperation. Benefits include:
- Minimal downtime
- Treats multiple skin conditions
- Minimal to no pain during procedure
- Minimized redness or swelling
The areas usually treated are the face, neck, hands, arms, back, legs and other areas exposed to the sun.
To ablate means to “surgically remove”. The Fraxel and Starlux1540 are non ablative lasers which mean that when the laser beam strikes the skin the skin is not removed immediately, rather the laser beam heats the skin to cause inflammation and new collagen production. The benefits of the Starlux 1540 non ablative laser skin treatments are dramatically reduced recovery time, but the results in terms of wrinkle removal and skin tightening are less dramatic than with ablative lasers.
However, the new Starlux 1540 fractional lasers are able to penetrate much deeper than traditional non fractional ablative lasers and we are discovering that deeper penetration of the laser produces a much more dramatic stimulation of new collagen formation which translates into a plumping effect on the skin. This is particularly useful in treating depressed acne scars.
