fractional laser treatment
Rejuvenate your skin with long lasting results.
In our image conscious world, everyone seeks smooth, glowing skin. The Erbium laser, today's most popular skin resurfacing laser, is a gentle option for laser skin resurfacing with dramatic results and minimal down time.
The laser peel is a technique for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles by gently removing the top layers of skin. The outer layers of damaged skin are gently ablated and the ablated tissue sloughs off and is replaced by a fresh new epidermis, for a smoother firmer look. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and texture improves.
Patients with skin irregularities such as wrinkles, lines, acne scars, uneven skin tone or rough texture may be a good candidate for Erbium laser peel.
Fractional Laser Treatment (Pixel Skin Resurfacing) FAQ's
Q: What is Pixel Skin resurfacing?
A. Fractional laser treatments create micro-thermal tunnels deep into the skin. The laser ablates (or vaporizes) the microscopic columns of skin while leaving the surrounding tissue untreated. The body's natural healing process creates new, healthy collagen to replace the columns of affected tissue. Once healed, skin texture improves and lines soften. The results are gradual and people can continue to see improvements in their skin for several months after their last fractional laser treatment.
Q: Who's a good candidate?
A. Men or women who have mild to moderate signs of skin aging, fine lines and wrinkles, and mildly lax skin tone. Non-uniform skin tone and color can be corrected as well as textural problems such as scars from acne or other skin injuries. Areas that can be treated include the face, neck, and chest, as well as hands and forearms.
Q: Is it safe?
A. Pixel Perfect™ resurfacing treatments have been performed all over the world and continue to be a safe and effective way of rejuvenating your skin. Some skin conditions can interfere with any treatment of this nature, so consult your provider to be sure.
