Scar Revision & Fractionated Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fractionated dermal resurfacing with the Lutronic Spectra MDF (multi-depth focus) laser offers the ability to remodel skin with mild to severe textural issues with little downtime. The MDF emits a fractionated laser treating the skin at a variety of different depths—from epidermal to full dermis—to treat scarring caused from trauma, burns, acne scars. Along with general uneven texture. The treatment creates coagulation points to initiate the skin to remodel itself with minimal pain and little downtime. Unlike CO2 laser and more ablative treatments, the Spectra MDF allows for deep dermal treatment without days of swelling or pain.

The treatment does result in petichia* (redness) as it creates new controlled wound points in the skin so that it may regenerate. After treatment, there is minimal swelling, and most people feel very comfortable. The greatest cause for “downtime” is the appearance of redness, which will persist and heal for about 4-7 days. Makeup can be applied the next day.

The effectiveness of fractionated dermal remodeling is impressive. Fractionated lasers cover a “fraction” of the skin at a time; therefore, a series of 3-4 treatments is usually recommended for a comprehensive remodeling of the skin. It is a slow and steady approach to skin resurfacing that has less downtime, less risk of infection and significantly less pain than the “one and done” approach of a full ablative laser.

Fractionated Laser Resurfacing prompts the skin to regenerate itself back to a smooth and more even texture and tone.

Benefits of Fractionated Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a popular cosmetic procedure that can be used to improve the quality and texture of skin, while also offering rejuvenating benefits as it remodels the dermal tissue with new collagen. The laser is used to rebuild dermal tissue from the inside out, which can help to improve the look of wrinkles, scars, and other blemishes. The procedure can also be used to help even out skin tone and improve the overall texture of the skin. Check out the other benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing:

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

During a laser skin resurfacing treatment, a specialized laser is used to remove the outer layer of the skin. This exposes the healthier underlying layers of skin cells and stimulates collagen production. The result is smoother, more even-toned, firmer-looking skin with fewer lines and wrinkles.

Is There Any Downtime Involved With Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Depending on the type of treatment you choose there may be some downtime associated with laser resurfacing treatments. Your doctor will advise you on what precautions to take following your treatment in order to optimize your results while protecting your newly rejuvenated complexion from irritation or damage.

Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Safe?

Yes! When performed by an experienced practitioner using FDA-approved devices lasers have very low risks such as burns or scarring when used in skilled hands; however, it’s always important to ask about any possible side effects or risks prior to agreeing to any cosmetic procedure so you know exactly what you’re getting into before taking that leap!

Who Shouldn't Get Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment?

Although laser treatments are generally safe they are not suitable for everyone; pregnant women and people with certain medical conditions such as diabetes should avoid them altogether due to their increased risks but again it’s best to consult with one of our professionals prior to making any decisions about whether this form of therapy is right for you and your lifestyle goals!

What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, scars, dark circles under the eyes, hyperpigmentation, large pores, and uneven skin texture or tone. It can also help to tighten sagging skin for a more youthful look.

What Types Of Lasers are Used In Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments?

Different types of lasers can be used depending on your specific condition and desired outcome. Commonly used lasers for resurfacing include CO2 (carbon dioxide), Erbium YAG (a gentler version of CO2), and Fraxel (a fractional laser). Your doctor will recommend which option best suits your needs based on your individual case assessment during a consultation prior to treatment commencement.

How Long Will My Results Last After Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Generally speaking, most people see improvements after just one session but how long those results last depends on which treatment you had as well as how well you tend to your newly rejuvenated complexion afterward; such things as avoiding prolonged sun exposure or keeping up with regular sunscreen use will maximize the longevity of your results!
