Profractional skin resurfacing may sound like a very in-depth scientific process, but it produces a wonderfully simple reaction on the surface of your skin. Thanks to an amazingly precise laser combined with your body’s own healing processes, profractional laser skin resurfacing can treat many of the most concerning signs of aging on your skin. For example, if you are plagued with lines and wrinkles, age spots or enlarged pores, this treatment can help you to look younger and more refreshed. We invite you to learn more about how it works.
What is a Profractional Laser?
While there are many types of lasers that can be used on the skin, a profractional laser works differently and better than most because it only treats a fraction of the skin’s surface rather than removing an entire layer of skin altogether. Studies have shown that this allows the skin to heal faster. Plus, recovery time will not be as long.
How Does Your Skin Respond?
When the profractional laser is passed over your skin, it creates tiny channels in the skin. The depth and number of the channels depends on your customized treatment plan. The body perceives this as an injury and sends in blood filled with growth hormones and nutrients to repair the area. This improves new cell growth as well as the amount of collagen and elastin in the underlying skin layers.
What is a Typical Treatment Like?
This treatment is performed in the comfort of our office in Peachtree Corners. While you may notice great results after only one treatment, most people benefit from a series of treatment sessions. This will help the skin to fully regenerate new skin.
What Can Profractional Lasers Treat?
Profractional lasers can treat many of the most common signs of aging. They can also be used for reducing pore size, decreasing oil production, decreasing acne scars and pock marks, improving skin glow, and generally improving skin tone and texture.
