Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing: How It Works
During a traditional laser treatment, a concentrated beam of laser energy is delivered to vaporizes skin cells in the targeted area. As the body’s healing response is stimulated, healthy skin is gradually revealed. This is an excellent method of skin rejuvenation, but it tends to require a longer downtime when compared to fractional laser skin treatment.
With fractional laser resurfacing, the beam of light is separated into thousands of smaller light beams (“fractionates”). Instead of vaporizing all the skin cells in the treated area, this fractional method affects microscopic columns of skin. The surrounding untreated tissue helps the targeted area heal, which reduces downtime.
There are different types of fractional lasers, but Fraxel is one particular laser device that is known for delivering optimal results with a gentle approach. Overall, Fraxel provides a significant improvement in skin tone and texture without the discomfort and lengthy recovery period typically associated with laser treatments.
