Gentle Fractionated Resurfacing Laser is a category of laser treatments based on fractional laser technology. Fractional lasers treat only a fraction of the skin, leaving healthy tissue around each lesion. The healthy, unaffected skin around the lesion plays an important function in the healing process; it also means that the treatment is more comfortable and recovery time is much shorter.
Gentle Fractionated Resurfacing Laser is safe for all types of skin, because it targets water, not pigment. It is considered a step up from chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and a step down from Dual Wavelength Fractionated Laser Resurfacing.
The appointment takes 60 minutes and begins by applying a topical numbing cream for patient comfort. Most patients describe the treatment as an increased sensation of heat or “prickling” during treatment with redness and subtle inflammation immediately after treatment, which commonly resolves within a few hours. To achieve satisfactory results, 3+ treatments are recommended, spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Afterwards, occasional maintenance treatments are recommended.
Gentle Fractionated Resurfacing Laser is an affordable, proactive treatment with little to no downtime that helps to maintain healthy, beautiful skin, prevent early signs of aging, minimize pore size, and improve the skins tone, texture and radiance.
