How Does A Fractionated Laser Work?
Fractionated laser treatment is designed to target aging and damaged skin by creating microscopic
"wounds" within the targeted areas well beneath the skin's outermost layer. In this way, the healing
of the "wounds" triggers the body's own natural production of new collagen and skin cells. And
because normal skin is present in between the micro-columns, healing and skin recovery is
expedited as compared to non-fractionated skin resurfacing.  This treatment combines the impact
of ablative lasers with the gentleness of non-ablative lasers.

How many treatments are required?
An initial series of four treatments are recommended to achieve the desired results in most
patients.  Some patients will require additional treatments to help achieve more dramatic
results. Every patient is assessed for individual treatment recommendation.  

Are there any side effects?
Treatments are safe and effective and have minimal down time.  Redness which resembles a
sunburn may be expected for two to four days after each procedure.  Long term side effects
are not common and are discussed with every patient based on their individual skin condition.

Does the treatment hurt?
A warm sensation which lasts several minutes may be experienced.A topical numbing cream is
applied before the treatment which helps ease any discomfort. Some patients may choose to
receive additional pain medications depending on the type of treatments and other
considerations.
