Fractional laser skin resurfacing provides great outcomes with minimal risks and reduced downtime, compared with other more invasive treatments. It’s the smart approach to skin resurfacing.
Micro beams are used to create areas of treated tissue surrounded by untreated tissue, which provides faster healing and reduced side effects. The body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue to replace the affected tissue, resulting in healthy, younger-looking skin.
