Fractional Skin Resurfacing
Fractional Skin Resurfacing for Multiple Skin Conditions – and Minimal Downtime
The signs of an aging face include lines, wrinkles, age spots and a downward drooping of facial features. Although surgery can help reposition aging tissue into the correct, youthful position and contour, it cannot rejuvenate the skin to the young, healthy glow you once had. Rejuvenation of the aging face therefore needs to be addressed in a two-fold fashion: Returning both the facial structures and the facial skin to its natural, youthful appearance.
Fractional skin resurfacing works to reduce or eliminate pronounced lines and wrinkles, correct acne scarring, and lessen uneven pigmentation. This technology allows the laser skin resurfacing treatment to provide some of the most dramatic, age-defying results possible. The procedure can be performed on specific areas-such as around the mouth or eyes-or over the surface of the entire face.
Using the newest advanced laser technology, the Palomar Icon laser for skin resurfacing precisely removes outer layers of damaged skin to reveal the underlying skin which is softer, smoother, and younger looking. The fractional scientific approach utilizes the body's natural healing response in a unique way. Instead of blasting away entire portions of skin, the new technology allows the laser to lay down rows of tiny, microscopic laser wounds, evenly spaced across the skin, leaving areas of untreated skin between them.
The Palomar Icon has much less risks than the older CO2 fractional lasers, and downtime is only a few days, not a few weeks. Within a week there is minimal evidence of having undergone the procedure outside of having new, tighter, fresher skin that continues to improve over the next several months.
Wymore Laser understands that the best long-term results from laser resurfacing require more than just laser treatment. That is why we have a team of skin care specialists to examine and educate each patient prior to and after fractional skin resurfacing. A specialized skin care plan will adequately prepare the skin for the laser procedure, take care of the skin during the healing phase, and maintain the tremendous gains achieved from the procedure.
