Fractional laser skin treatment works by targeting both the epidermis and dermis. It does this by delivering a laser beam that is divided into thousands of tiny dots into the skin. The laser pulses penetrate deep into the dermis to produce collagen and repair damaged skin cells and other imperfections. The benefit of this focused therapy is that only a fraction of tissue is treated at a time facilitating a quick recovery.
We use the latest in laser skin resurfacing technology available on the market today and It can be used on the face, neck, chest and body.

Full Ablative Vs. Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
An ablative laser is used to remove the outer layers of skin in the entire treatment area. The newly-exposed skin is red, tender, and needs protection. People generally take a week or so off from work to allow their skin to heal completely. When it recovers, the results are immediately obvious. This method of laser skin resurfacing gives great results, but few people want to take the time off from work for recovery, not to mention dealing with the inconvenience of staying out of the sun and the discomfort people experience from this style of laser skin resurfacing.
Fractional Laser skin resurfacing is an exciting new technique that allows people to experience the same benefits without the downtime. Instead of removing all the skin in a treatment area, fractional skin resurfacing creates numerous microscopic wells that tap into the deeper layers of skin to stimulate the appropriate healing response and rejuvenation. Fractional skin resurfacing results in only minor discomfort and requires minimal downtime, though you should still protect your skin after treatment.
The only disadvantage of fractional laser skin resurfacing is that it requires multiple treatments to give the same results but it is safer.
For a few hours, you may experience a burning sensation like a sunburn. Icepacks and wet soaks can help alleviate this discomfort. It is normal for your skin to feel tight and for you to see patches and dark spots. Your skin will peel when it is ready, so don’t try to speed up the process by picking or exfoliating.
As your skin gradually peels off to reveal the newer, healthier layer below, your face will likely be red. Swelling improves in 24 hours and redness clears within a couple days. During this time, you will be given a product to apply after your treatment to help your skin retain moisture. You should wear mineral sunscreen as well to protect your skin after a treatment.
