Laser Resurfacing: Is Fractional Laser Treatment Right for You?

Similar to how a picture may be improved or changed pixel by pixel, fractional laser treatment can be a minimally invasive procedure in which energy from a laser is delivered to the skin in thousands of minuscule treatment zones. Whereas non-fractionated devices treat every bit of the treatment region, fractionated devices treat just a portion. Consequently, it is more gentle, yet just as effective, in producing improved results on the skin over a period of time. Here is what you can expect from fractional laser treatment.

What Can Laser Resurfacing Do for You?

Laser resurfacing generally reduces the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It also helps to restore an even skin tone and improve your skin’s texture. Fractional lasers, in particular, help to reduce the risk of side effects after a laser resurfacing session, as well as, speed up recovery time.

What Areas Can a Fractional Laser Treat?

While most people typically choose fractional laser treatment for facial skin conditions, it is also effective for use on other parts of the body, such as the neck, chest, arms, and hands. For specific treatment sites, it is best to consult with a laser and cosmetic specialist, such as Dr. Deborah Farrell at Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, P.C.
