No matter what you do, you just can’t get rid of those acne scars and wrinkles on your own. Luckily, fractional laser treatment is a treatment that utilizes lasers to smooth out the skin and remove acne scars and wrinkles. This treatment works to rejuvenate your visage without having to use ablative lasers.
Lasers that remove the outer layer of the skin are known as ablative lasers. This is an aggressive method for rejuvenating the skin that allows the body to produce a new layer to replace what was removed by the laser. It requires some downtime for recovery and can be painful.
Fractional lasers are non-ablative. This means the outer layer of the skin is left intact. Most of the energy is focused on the lower layers of the skin. When the microscopic laser pulses penetrate the skin, the healing process begins. The skin’s surface is rejuvenated as a result.
Fractional laser treatment helps by focusing energy beneath the surface of the skin. It can be used to stimulate the growth of collagen in order to give the skin fullness. Collagen is a protein that helps tissue to stay together, plus it gives the skin a level of fullness and tightness that it would not have otherwise.
When you start to age, your body quits producing collagen in the same quantities it did beforehand. This reduction in the substance causes the skin to lose much of its tightness. This causes it to sag and wrinkles to form. Since these are common signs of aging, a more youthful look can be restored by returning collagen to the higher levels that were present during youth. The tighter skin that comes about as a result will be free from lines and wrinkles as well as acne scars.
These treatments are done in an office and do not require a hospital stay. You can return home as soon as the treatment is completed. There is also minimal downtime, so you can get back to a normal schedule right away.
