“Fractional resurfacing” sounds scary, but it’s a surprisingly simple procedure. Where many treatment techniques that fall under the banner of “laser treatment” actually use lamps and lights to achieve desired results, fractional resurfacing uses real lasers like you see in science fiction movies.
The process can work to make damaged skin look young and smooth again, healing wrinkles and even undoing scarring in some instances by simply healing the skin.
It sounds like magic, but it’s not. In fact, the laser doesn’t do any of the healing itself. Rather, the laser activates your dermis’s natural healing abilities and your body takes care of the recovery process itself. Simple collagen stimulation is a big part of the process as the lasers kickstart your skin into taking care of itself and undoing sun damage, wrinkles, age spots and fine lines.
The term “fractional resurfacing” comes from the simple fact that your skin is being “resurfaced.” The dermis, the inner layer of skin, simply goes to work smoothening up the outer skin, the epidermis.
As the skin heals, it even becomes tighter, making fractural resurfacing an effective alternative to costly and oftentimes dangerous facelifts.
Although the process is relatively quick and easy to go through, you may be scheduled for three or more appointments. You may well see results right away, but you probably won’t achieve the desired effect until you’ve gone through a few treatments. The technicians and professionals you deal with will be able to schedule a treatment routine that you can be comfortable with.
More effective than most creams and topical treatments, safer than face lifts, fractional resurfacing is simply one of the most effective, efficient and lasting ways to improve your appearance not with artificial efforts towards beautifying yourself, but by simply letting your natural beauty shine through from inside out. By activating the body’s natural healing abilities, fractional resurfing is a safe and effective way to look younger and feel better.
