There are many factors that contribute to the appearance of aging skin. Likewise, there are treatment methods available to help counteract these effects. One such method is fractional laser resurfacing, and it could work for you.
If you have spots of pigmentation changes on your skin, one of the causes could be too much exposure to the sun over the years, especially if much of that time was spent without using sunscreen. If this is the case, fractional laser resurfacing may be an option for you to have that youthful skin texture restored.
Skin resurfacing works by targeting some of the skin cells that are contributing to the things that make people look older. These skin cells are then replaced by new cells that grow in their place. These new cells will be healthier.
Traditional lasers involve the use of ablative treatments for the outer layers of the skin and non-ablative lasers for deeper tissue. Fractional laser resurfacing treatments use fractional lasers in which the beams are divided into many microscopic treatment zones that target very small areas at a time. The method was developed as a way of providing the best of both laser treatment methods so that patients can benefit from an advanced technique that gives the greatest chances for successful treatment while minimizing downtime and recovery time.
In addition to treating areas of the skin that have been damaged by the sun, the method can help with the treatment of other common skin complaints. This makes it a versatile treatment for signs of aging and pigmentation issues.
