What is fractional resurfacing?

Fractional resurfacing is an advanced technology in which only a small fraction of the skin receives the laser light. The laser delivers a series of high precision microbeams that create narrow, deep columns of tissue penetration well below the epidermis (skin surface) and into the dermis, while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue from damage. This “fractional” treatment allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, using the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy skin cells.

What conditions does fractional resurfacing treat?

Fractional resurfacing is very effective on fine lines and wrinkles (including around the eyes), age or sun spots, acne scars, surgical scars and sun damage.

What is the recovery time?

The healthy cells in unlasered areas promote rapid healing of the entire treatment area, resulting in faster recovery time and minimal side effects. The result is softer, smoother and healthier skin without a prolonged healing period.
