How does Fractional Laser Resurfacing work on skin???

Our skin is a part of the body that is exposed all the time, so many people try very hard to keep it perfect, and it should be done. At least every few years we learn about new cosmetic treatments, but these fractional laser resurfacing treatments, although old, have passed the test of time and are still very effective today. Despite constantly changing themselves, this technology still continues to help keep our skin perfect.

What actually is fractional laser resurfacing?

In this treatment, Dermatologists(doctors) regularly remove the top layer of skin so that new, vibrant, beautiful skin comes out from the bottom. In the process, doctors focus a ray of vibrating light on the skin in such a way that the damaged upper layer rises and the smoothness of the skin returns.

• Fractional laser resurfacing helps create new collagen and reduces scarring, blemishes and skin roughness. This treatment also reduces age-related problems, suntan, skin colour imbalances, fine lines and wrinkles.

• Acne scarring resurfacing treatment by laser creates a controlled thermal zone in the respective areas of the skin, increasing collagen production and rearrangement – thereby reducing the depth of the scar. This modern technology also reduces permanent stains; returns the smoothness of the skin. Laser skin tightening treatment works according to this controlled wound healing theory so that the collagen is immediately wrinkled and rearranged. This makes new healthy collagen and tightens the skin. This also reduces the age-related changes that occur on the skin, such as wrinkles, smoker’s lines, frown lines, corner wrinkles (crow’s feet) and other wrinkles. It is the best non-surgical treatment for skin rejuvenation, colour and rejuvenation.
