Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment

Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment is a cosmetic procedure that uses laser technology to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. This treatment targets small areas of the skin with a laser beam, creating microscopic wounds that stimulate the body’s natural healing process. The damaged skin cells are replaced with new, healthy tissue, which can result in smoother, more youthful-looking skin. The fractional aspect of the treatment refers to the fact that only a fraction of the skin is treated at a time, leaving the surrounding skin untouched. This helps to reduce the risk of complications and allows for a quicker recovery time compared to traditional laser skin resurfacing.

CO2 Fractional Lasers

  • Penetrate deep into the skin to minimize deep wrinkles and significant age-related damage.
  • Promote intense collagen production, leading to robust skin rejuvenation.
  • Often recommended for treating deeper scars and severe textural issues.
  • Recovery may involve more downtime but typically results in dramatic improvements.

Erbium Fractional Lasers

  • Target superficial to moderate skin levels, making them ideal for mild to moderate wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Less invasive than CO2 lasers, leading to a quicker recovery period.
  • Minimize heat damage to surrounding tissues, thereby reducing redness and swelling post-treatment.
  • Suitable for delicate skin areas, such as the neck and hands.

Non-ablative Fractional Lasers

  • Focus on heating up the underlying skin tissue without removing the top layer of skin.
  • Stimulate collagen growth and skin tightening with minimal downtime.
  • Best for clients looking for gradual improvement of skin texture and tone.
  • Typically require multiple sessions for optimal results and are great for overall skin rejuvenation.

Which Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment Is Right For Me?

Selecting the appropriate fractional laser resurfacing treatment requires a careful assessment of your skin type, the specific skin issues you want to address, and your overall health. Different technologies, such as CO2, Erbium, and Non-ablative fractional lasers, provide unique benefits tailored to various skin concerns. For instance, CO2 lasers are highly effective for deeper wrinkles and scars, while Fraxel is suitable for milder skin damage and requires less recovery time.

At Mederm Esthetics & Laser Clinic, after your treatment, we will provide you with comprehensive aftercare guidelines to promote optimal healing. Our initial consultation is essential, as our specialists will evaluate your skin’s condition, discuss your aesthetic goals, and review your medical history to suggest the most suitable laser treatment for you.

What Can I Expect During A Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment?

Pre-Treatment Consultation: Before your fractional laser resurfacing session, you’ll meet with our laser specialists. This discussion will focus on your skin rejuvenation objectives, a review of your medical history, and a thorough assessment of your skin. This ensures the treatment is customized precisely for your unique skin requirements.

Cleansing: We will thoroughly cleanse your skin to eliminate any external impurities. This critical step ensures there are no adverse reactions and that the laser precisely focuses on the target areas of your skin.

Laser Application: With your skin properly prepared, we will apply the chosen laser. Our certified technicians will adjust the laser settings to suit the specific characteristics of your skin, such as texture and level of damage, ensuring effective treatment.

Sensation: You might experience a sensation akin to a rubber band snapping against your skin during the procedure. We may use cooling techniques or apply numbing creams to enhance your comfort.

Duration: The length of each session will vary depending on the extent and complexity of the skin area being treated. Typically, treatments last from 5 to 30 minutes. Our team will closely monitor your progress throughout the session to guarantee both comfort and effectiveness.

Post-Treatment Care: Immediately following the procedure, we will apply a cooling gel or a bandage to help soothe any discomfort. You will also receive detailed instructions for aftercare, including skincare tips, guidelines on avoiding sun exposure, and advice on keeping the treated area clean.

How To Prepare For A Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment?

To ensure a safe and successful fractional laser resurfacing treatment, we recommend the following preparatory steps:

Avoid Sun Exposure: Reduce your sun exposure and avoid tanning beds for at least two weeks before your treatment. Tanned or sunburned skin can heighten the risk of side effects and complications during the procedure.

Discontinue Certain Skincare Products: Cease using skincare products that contain retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), or any abrasive exfoliating agents a week before your treatment as these can render your skin more sensitive to the laser.

Stay Hydrated: It’s important to drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your appointment. Adequate hydration helps maintain skin health and supports the recovery process after the treatment.

Follow Pre-Treatment Instructions: Comply with specific instructions from your laser specialist. This might include shaving the treatment area the day before your appointment and avoiding certain medications or supplements that influence blood clotting, such as aspirin, NSAIDs, or omega-3 fatty acids.

Plan for Downtime: Although fractional laser resurfacing generally requires minimal recovery time, you may experience some redness, swelling, or slight blistering in the treated area. We advise not planning any major events or engaging in vigorous activities for a few days post-treatment to allow for proper healing.

Proper preparation can significantly improve your treatment experience and outcomes. If you have any questions or need additional guidance, please reach out to Mederm Esthetics & Laser Clinic before your scheduled appointment.
