Fractional Laser Therapy
Fractional laser therapy is one of the hot topics in plastic surgery and is our most popular laser treatment. Patented Fractional laser technology tightens lax skin for a smoother feel. It offers skin tightening and rejuvenation without less downtime than a normal ablative laser procedure. Melasma, scarring and fine lines can also be treated. Instead of vaporizing the skin, fractional lasers create individual tunnels within your skin, allowing new undamaged collagen from the deeper skin to migrate to the surface. This revolutionary concept allows us to resurface your skin without turning your skin into a red, inflamed surface.
The benefits of laser skin resurfacing include tightening of the skin, rejuvenation of skin tone and texture, and smoothing the overall surface of the skin. It is used primarily for facial rejuvenation, especially in men and women within the workforce. Laser resurfacing is one of our most potent weapons against aging, but most of our patients do not have weeks to take off for recovery. In these instances, we offer fractional laser therapy. With fractional therapy, recovery occurs over the course of 2-3 days, rather than over weeks with a traditional laser device.

Fractional laser can be done with or without sedation, and takes around 30-45 minutes. We commonly recommend that patients undergo a series of fractional laser treatments to maximize their results. These laser treatment are scheduled at your convenience, and we routinely work it between your social and professional schedule.
Most patients are candidates for fractional laser resurfacing. Our finest results, however, are in younger patients who have minimal skin aging. We have seen time and again that early fractional laser therapy resurfacing of skin prevents and delays the onset of aging stigmata. While this treatment is extremely effective in all age groups, we find that this modality is especially effective in men and women between 35 and 50.
