Fractional lasers are an ideal method for evening skin tone and texture, reducing pigmentation irregularities, and improving fine to moderate lines and wrinkles.
Fractional laser treatments work by removing columns of skin, while leaving behind areas of intact skin. The tiny areas treated by the laser stimulate a healing response, activating collagen production and bringing growth factors to the skin. The untreated areas of the skin allow for a faster healing time. Generally, the fractional lasers treat about 20% of the surface of the skin with these micro-columns. This can lead to a significant improvement in both superficial and deep lines and acne scars and generally leads to a brighter, clearer complexion.
Fractional Erbium Lasers are an excellent alternative to the more aggressive CO2 laser treatments.
