Fractional Skin Resurfacing
Fractional skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical procedure that can be performed on almost any skin type. The procedure has many benefits, but there are some things to keep in mind. After the procedure, the skin may experience redness and minor peeling. It will be important to use cold compresses and cold water spray to calm the skin. You will also want to avoid vigorous physical exercise for a few days. You can also use oil-free makeup to hide the redness. Generally, the skin will clear up in a few months.
The procedure usually requires three to six sessions, with the final results noticeable between two and three months after the last treatment. The downtime is minimal, and most patients are able to return to work the next day. Some patients are able to achieve the final results after only a few treatments. The first session can last up to an hour.
Fractional skin resurfacing is an excellent procedure for people who want to improve their skin. It can help reduce fine lines, reduce sun damage, and reduce acne scarring. In addition, it can reduce wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. The procedure is safe and has few side effects. At Soulage Wellness and Aesthetic Center, a consultation is available to discuss this treatment.
Fractional lasers can be an effective treatment for most types of skin. However, they are not suitable for people with sensitive skin. Fractional lasers can cause side effects such as redness, crusting, and peeling. They can also cause bacterial skin infections and HSV flare-ups.
Fractional skin resurfacing uses heated laser light to remove specific layers of skin. This procedure is quick and effective, but it will require several treatments, each spaced four weeks apart. During this time, you should avoid sun exposure and retinol-based products. In addition, you should be very sun-protective a week before your treatment to minimize any side effects.
Fractional skin resurfacing can reduce acne scars and other signs of aging, including wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines. If performed properly, it can even help patients with pre-cancerous lesions and uneven skin tone. Fractional skin resurfacing can be combined with other cosmetic procedures for maximum results.
Fractional skin resurfacing uses specialized pulses of energy that are delivered deep into the skin. These fractions target specific areas of the skin, and the laser energy is absorbed by the body’s natural healing process. This results in new, healthy skin with improved tone, texture, and tightness.
Fractional skin resurfacing is an excellent choice for patients who want to achieve results quickly without major downtime and discomfort. It is the perfect solution for people with sun damage, rough skin, and acne scars. This treatment also reduces skin laxity.
