Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional or fractionated laser treatments give you the beautiful, natural-looking results of the original CO2 laser resurfacing without the two-week recovery period. The fractional laser leaves tiny "bridges" of untouched skin between the treated areas. Recovery is faster because less skin is affected. You can return to your regular routine in four to seven days, instead of two weeks.
And unlike the CO2 laser, which treats only the face, the fractional laser can be applied to treatment sites all over your body.
These treatments can on all of the skin conditions: aging or scarred skin, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven texture, discoloration, sun damage, laxity, and scars on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs
We treat superficial imperfections such as blotchy pigmentation and fine lines with ActiveFX, sending a high-energy laser beam in a broad pattern onto the skin's surface. For more pronounced wrinkles, excessive laxity, and scars we use DeepFX. It directs a narrow beam of energy into the deeper skin layers, where it stimulates collagen growth to soften and smooth the surface.
When we use both broad and narrow beams sequentially in the same treatment session it is called TotalFX.
