How Does Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Fractional laser skin resurfacing removes targeted skin layers in columns. To ensure proper healing, the surrounding tissue is left undisturbed. Pulses of light are directed, in short bursts, at concentrated areas in a scanning pattern using minimal heat.
There is little to no pain associated with treatment, but you may experience a gentle warmth.
There is no set downtime associated with a treatment, but it is important to give your skin time to heal. While you may need to take some time to help allow your skin to heal, one of the benefits of choosing fractional laser skin resurfacing is this treatment typically creates results in just one treatment session.
To ensure optimal comfort and healing, this treatment may require some pre and post-treatment care. However, our team in Odessa can provide you with all of the instructions and information you need!
This treatment improves the appearance of:
- Thinning collagen on the chest, neck, or face
- Dull or uneven skin tone
- Irregularities in the texture and laxity of skin
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Age spots, such as liver spots and freckles
Results and Follow-Up
While results do vary for each person and condition, significant results have been reported when using fractional laser skin resurfacing, with improvement continuing for six months afterwards. Proper care should be taken after treatment, including minimizing sun exposure. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled with our team after treatment to check on progress and answer questions.
To maintain optimal results, some patients have found the need to repeat treatment if their skin has not been properly taken care of or they haven’t avoided sun exposure as directed by their doctor. For areas around the eyes, additional treatment may be needed in one to two years. For other treated areas, maintenance may be required in a few years. Our team in Texas will provide and an individualized treatment plan.
Can I Combine Treatments?
Fractional laser skin resurfacing can be combined with other treatments, but it is not recommended that you do so on the same day. A consultation with our team can help you develop your unique treatment plan.
