What it Does
Fractional Laser treatments are non-invasive treatments that use a laser that becomes fractionalized or divided into many treatment zones that target a fraction of the skin at a time.
Fractional laser treatments are special in that the treatment works on both the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. The epidermis contains melanocytes which give skin its color. The dermis contains collagen and elastin that allow the skin to be elastic and pliable. Having more collagen and elastin in the skin gives a more youthful appearance with less fine lines and wrinkles.
Fractional laser treatments can be used to treat facial lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and surgical and acne scarring. For acne scars that are textured and raised, using laser treatments are much more effective due to its ability to go deeper into the skin. It essentially breaks down old damaged cells and new undamaged cells grow in its place.
