What is Fractional Resurfacing?

With fractional resurfacing you can see an improvement with wrinkles, acne scars, scars, sun damage, brown spots and other skin problems. You will begin to see results immediately and there is minimal to no downtime.

Is Fractional Resurfacing permanent?
Fractional resurfacing is long lasting, but not permanent and you may require follow-up procedures to maintain your new look. 

How is the procedure done?
Lasers work by utilizing a customized light that passes through the skin and is absorbed by the water in the damaged collagen just beneath the surface of the skin. The laser light is able to remove very fine layers of skin, therefore, diminishing the look of wrinkles and smoothing the skins texture. Fractional resurfacing stimulates collagen renewal and as the healing process begins, new cells generate leaving the skin smoother and softer.

What is the recovery like?
You may experience some swelling and redness most people look like they have a tan or bronze look for a few weeks after the procedure.  You will experience some peeling following treatment, but that is normal and a good moisturizer helps.  There is little to no pain and you can continue with your normal activities.
