Fractional Laser Resurfacing Newport BeachPublished on June 8, 2016 by Raymond Lee
The recent rise in laser, as well as non-surgical procedures, is giving way to the new trend of the season: fractional laser resurfacing. From getting rid of wrinkles along the cheekbones to eliminating crow’s feet around your eyes, fractional laser resurfacing is a cosmetic solution to aging that is exploding in popularity!
Fractional Laser Resurfacing is a simple procedure that glides a laser along the patient’s face; almost as if to scan it, in areas they determine with their doctor need improvement or rejuvenation. This is often in order to pump up skin in specific areas, therefore restoring it to a more youthful appearance. The laser can target small microthermal spots in the skin and essentially replace them by activating a natural healing process within the skin.
The procedure will allow your skin to produce healthy skin cells and collagen, which often slows down as we age. Fractional laser resurfacing can give volume to your face and/ or neck by triggering the skin to heal itself, thus starting the antiaging process.. When the skin is restored, the valleys and pockets of old sagging skin are lifted along with it, giving you a much more subtle and gentle look that really gives your skin its shine back.
However, it is not just older skin that this procedure is used for. It is also often administered to help patients who have had scarring occur– whether that be from and injury or a prior condition. In patients under fifty years of age, the Fraxel laser is often utilized to eliminate acne scars and fine lines and wrinkles ,where as patients over fifty receive fractional laser resurfacing to care for more deeper and embedded wrinkles that are brought on by time. Fractional laser resurfacing is ideal for treating both fine lines and deep wrinkles, sun damage, injury and conditional scarring, large pores, aged skin deposits, or even just to smooth an abnormal texture.
After the procedure, the patient can be looking at skin from years earlier! Aside from a slight stinging, the procedure isn’t painful and requires about a week downtime. The process will be customized to compliment the areas that you want to be improved. This being said, it is crucial to speak with Dr. Lee to determine your optimal results to get you looking and feeling younger!
