The Secret to Rewriting the Skin’s Surface
As our skin ages, it begins to accumulate the evidence of our daily habits, our routines, and our health history. Acne scarring, wrinkling, and discoloration are only a few of the most common imperfections that arise in our skin as we get older, and dealing with those signs of aging can be frustrating without the proper methods. However, with powerful anti-aging procedures such as fractional laser resurfacing
, patients can receive compelling and lasting results that will reverse their biological clock and make their skin look younger, healthier, and more radiant.
How Fractional Laser Resurfacing Works
Through fractional laser resurfacing, men and women of all ages and backgrounds are given the ability to transform and rewrite the surfaces of their skin in a safe, non-invasive, and controlled manner.
Fractional laser resurfacing works by targeting specific areas of the skin with thousands of microscopic lasers. These lasers penetrate the skin at desired depths to invigorate the body’s natural healing responses, promote the production of key proteins such as collagen and elastin (which are responsible for maintaining smooth, firm skin), and undo years of damage caused by unprotected sun exposure, acne scarring, hormone imbalance, and a variety of other issues.
Fractional laser resurfacing is particularly useful in treating fine lines and deep-seated wrinkles that form throughout the body. These signs of aging can make patients look much older than they should, and by reversing skin wrinkling, those treated with the fractional laser can dramatically improve their appearance and overall confidence.
What to Know Prior to Your Laser Treatment
Prior to receiving your fractional laser treatment, you will meet with a trusted skin health expert to discuss your areas of concern and any underlying causes that may be leading to your skin woes. Once a plan has been determined, you will walk away with a better understanding of – and appreciation for – your skin.
Before receiving your laser treatment, you will be asked to refrain from the use of certain topical products, exfoliators, or other treatment options, as these may interfere with treatment and limit your results.
What to Expect Following Your Laser Treatment
Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure. This means that, following treatment, patients will not have to deal with painful and unsightly recoveries associated with so many other treatment options. In addition, the procedure itself is relatively painless, and a topical soothing agent can be applied prior to treatment to make the procedure even more enjoyable.
Results from fractional laser resurfacing vary from one patient to the next, but are typically noticeable after the first three to four months of a treatment plan. Understanding what to expect starts with a conversation with a skin care expert.
