Fractional treatment uses pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. It stimulates the body’s own natural healing process that replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin. You can expect two levels of results, immediate and progressive. Immediately after initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter, and tone will start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next 3 to 6 months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal.
How Fractional Laser Treatment Works
Think of your skin as a digital photo that is delicately touched up one spot at a time. Fractional treatment, likewise, affects a fraction of tissue at a time with thousands of microscopic laser columns—each just one-tenth the diameter of a hair follicle. Then your body takes care of the rest. The laser columns stimulate a natural healing process that works from the inside out, replacing damaged tissue with younger, smoother, healthier skin.
