4 Major Benefits of Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

1. The procedure can tackle multiple complexion issues.

Whether you have signs of aging or you have acne scars from breakouts past, fractional laser skin resurfacing can target and fix a number of skin issues.

In fact, laser skin resurfacing is often recommended as a treatment for many complexion concerns, ranging from hyperpigmentation and acne scarring to sagging skin and wrinkles.

2. Fractional laser skin resurfacing doesn’t cause skin damage.

That’s because fractional laser skin resurfacing targets damage within the skin itself. Here’s how it works: Fractional Laser targets water within the dermal tissue, which causes the collagen molecules within the tissue to heat up. 

This thermal energy stimulates fibroblast activity, which speeds up cellular turnover and provides a “peeling” effect without creating any damage to the skin. 

Fractional laser resurfacing is an excellent alternative for people who want the benefits of laser skin resurfacingwithout the potential for damage.

Most people need 3 to 5 laser resurfacing treatments to see their ideal results. These are typically spaced a couple months apart to allow for maximum healing time.

4. Results can last for a long time.

Laser skin resurfacing is exciting in that the results from your treatment can last for a long time – years, in fact! 

That’s because laser skin resurfacing helps to improve cellular turnover and treat current complexion issues. Once those skin issues are treated, they’re gone – for good. And with a proper skincare regimen (including plenty of sunscreen) your results can be permanent.
