Our skin is a remarkable organ. Not only is it the largest organ in the human body, capable of protecting the rest of the body from numerous environmental threats and hazards, it is also constantly renewing itself. However, the process of renewal slows as we age, which means our skin is more likely to show the hardships of its difficult job in the form of age spots, sun damage, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.To reduce the appearance of these signs of aging, all that is necessary is to speed up the skin's normal process of shedding and renewal. Lasers are ideal for this because they can evenly and precisely remove the dull, damaged layers of skin without chemicals and without abrasion. Your deeper, younger layers of skin are exposed and your skin's natural healing response is stimulated, resulting in a smoother, tighter, and more vibrant skin.
Fractional skin resurfacing is an exciting new technique that allows people to experience the same benefits without the downtime. Instead of removing all the skin in a treatment area, fractional skin resurfacing creates numerous microscopic wells that tap into the deeper layers of skin to stimulate the appropriate healing response and rejuvenation.
Fractional skin resurfacing results in only minor discomfort and requires minimal downtime, though you should still protect your skin after treatment.The only disadvantage of fractional laser skin resurfacing is that it requires multiple treatments to give the same results.
