Fractional ablation laser treatments can help you look younger by eliminating many of the most common signs of aging on the skin, especially lines and wrinkles. It works far better than other types of laser skin treatments do because it treats only a small “fraction” of the skin, allowing the surrounding unharmed areas of skin to promote rapid healing and rejuvenation in the treated area.
This type of laser can be used on a variety of areas of the body that are most affected by the signs of aging because they feature very thin skin that can appear crepey and wrinkled quite quickly following sun or age-related damage. While it can be used numerous places, the most common spots that are treated include the face, neck, chest and hands. Following a single treatment, you may be able to see gorgeous results that can make you look years younger. Keep in mind that this is an anti-aging treatment that improves the look of your skin, but it does not stop the aging process altogether. Your skin will continue to age, gathering wrinkles and hyperpigmented spots while also growing thinner. Continued treatments can help you keep up the good results.
During a fractional ablation laser treatment using our state-of-the-art laser system, the laser will treat the surface of your skin, creating microscopic channels in your skin, which you cannot see with the naked eye. However, these channels jumpstart your body’s own healing process, which can create more collagen in the area. Collagen is what makes your skin appear plump, smooth and young. As old collagen cells become stronger and new cells begin to grow, your skin will look younger with fewer lines and wrinkles, a thicker and plumper surface and a youthful glow from all of the fresh, new cells that are on your skin’s surface.
A single treatment is fast and easy and is performed in the comfort of our office. After your treatment, you will be given directions for how to care for your skin. For example, you may need to stay out of the sun for a set amount of time to achieve the best results.
