What is it?
Fractional face resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that will help maintain the facial skin’s natural youth. It uses the noninvasive procedure of Fractional Laser Resurfacing.
This procedure treats only a fraction of the skin’s surface while leaving areas of untreated skin intact. It improves the overall texture of the skin, along with wrinkles, scars, sun spots, enlarged pores, and uneven pigmentation.
Fractional lasers are relatively newer forms of laser technology and it differs from other lasers with its ability to target imperfections and treat the microscopic areas of the skin. This will allow the treated areas to blend in with the untreated areas of skin, leading to an improved look of the skin without any wounds or irritation.
Who needs it?
The Fractional Face Resurfacing can be recommended for patients of all skin types. It is usually opted for the following reasons:
How does it work?
As in any laser treatments, a high-energy beam of light is directed to certain areas or tissues of the skin. The beams of light can be produced in one wavelength or one colour at a time. This can also vary with respect to their strength and the type of tissue they are used to target.
Laser resurfacing can be performed with either of the following types:
The doctor will first call the patients for a consultation, where they would have to:
Once the doctor confirms the treatment plan, the following will be performed before the procedure:
During the ablative laser resurfacing, the laser is directed at the area of the skin to be treated. This will destroy the outer layer of skin. At the same time, the laser will heat the underlying skin causing the collagen fibers to shrink. As the wound heals, a new skin will form that will be smoother and tighter. This procedure usually takes 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the technique used and the size of the area treated.
During the nonablative laser resurfacing, the laser will damage the collagen beneath the skin, leading to the stimulation of new collagen to grow. This will tighten the underlying skin and improve both the skin tone and appearance. No skin will be removed.
