Renourish Skin After Hot Summer Days with Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
Posted September 12, 2012 in Fat Transfer Face
Summer is drawing to a close, but some of us might have spent a little too much time outdoors and are now feeling the after effects – dark spots, uneven tone, and overall dull skin. The sun represents youth, strength, and vitality, but it can sometimes leave our skin feeling the opposite effects. Just because the daylight hours are getting shorter, however, doesn’t mean your skin can’t be as radiant as ever. Now is the perfect time to rejuvenate and renourish your skin after a summer of pools, beaches and outdoor fun. Here are the details on how you can reverse the effects of sun damage with fractional laser skin resurfacing.
What is Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Fractional laser skin resurfacing is a cutting edge treatment designed to tighten, even, and improve the overall look of your skin. It works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations in the skin. The key idea is that every single perforation is surrounded by healthy skin, which will then cover over the perforations as they heal. The result is a faster procedure with far less recovery time.
How Does the Fractional Laser Differ from Other Methods?
Traditional methods generally destroy the entire surface area of the skin, but only at specific layers. For example, plasma skin resurfacing destroys the lower layers, but leaves the top layer unharmed to form a shield. These methods usually require general anesthesia, and long recovery times. In addition, they also carry more risk of the skin becoming scarred or infected after treatment. By comparison, fractional laser treatment leaves enough unharmed skin around each perforation to provide a much shorter recovery time and a less painful experience.
What Kind of Damage Can Be Fixed with Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
All kinds of skin damage can be repaired with fractional laser resurfacing including sun damage, wrinkles, acne scarring, and uneven pigmentation. The results last long term and are much more dramatic than over the counter solutions.
Does Fractional Laser Resurfacing Offer Any Other Benefits?
Yes, the healing process of the tiny perforations in the skin stimulate the production of collagen. This means that skin will gain elasticity and suppleness naturally. The result is an improved tone and texture that is long lasting.
Who Is a Candidate for Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
Anyone who shows signs of aging or damage is a good candidate for fractional laser resurfacing. If you are in good health and just want to reverse the visible signs of aging, fractional laser resurfacing may be right for you.
This new method of resurfacing can be done in as little as 30 minutes, and the most common side effects are usually minor flushing of the skin.
