FAQs about Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Has a lifetime of sun exposure or the normal aging process left your skin looking wrinkled, damaged, discolored or saggy? Would you like to recapture your beautiful, youthful complexion once again? If so, fractional laser resurfacing from a dermatologist at U.S. Dermatology Partners Littleton, formerly Apex Dermatology Group, in Littleton may be just the procedure you need to look and feel your best.

What is Fractional Laser Resurfacing?

Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that resurfaces your skin, erasing your imperfections and leaving you with a beautiful, youthful complexion. A cosmetic procedure that bridges the gap between ablative and non-ablative laser techniques, fractional laser resurfacing offers the dramatic results of ablative treatments as well as the gentleness of non-ablative lasers for a procedure that requires minimal downtime.

How Does Fractional Laser Resurfacing Work?

With fractional laser resurfacing, your Littleton dermatologist will use a laser light to target small microthermal treatment zones, effectively erasing your wrinkles, dark spots and imperfections bit by bit. Fractional laser resurfacing specifically targets the damaged areas of both the epidermal and dermal layers while sparing the healthy tissue, which results in a faster recovery period.

What Benefits Does Fractional Laser Resurfacing Offer?

Fractional laser resurfacing can be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, erase sun spots and age spots, and get rid of acne scarring. It can be used on all skin types and on any part of the body, especially the neck, chest, and hands. The common side effects are mild, the procedure can be combined with other treatments, and the downtime is minimal. In fact, most patients are able to return to work and other daily activities as soon as the next day after treatment.
