Frequently Asked Questions

What is Fractional Resurfacing?
Fractional Resurfacing is a process by which tiny portions of the skin are treated with a laser, causing the appearance of the rest of the skin to improve.  These tiny treated areas, called micro thermal zones, will cause the surrounding skin to rejuvenate.

What skin problems does Fractional Resurfacing treat?
This treatment is intended to rejuvenate facial imperfections, including acne scarring, surgical scares, enlarged pores, fine wrinkles, irregular coloration, and uneven texture.

How long does a Fractional Resurfacing treatment take?
The length of time for a Fractional Resurfacing treatment depends on the size of the area being treated and how much energy is being delivered.  Average treatment times for the face are between 15 and 45 minutes .

How many Fractional Resurfacing treatments will I need?
Typically clients receive three to five treatments spaced at one month intervals.  Some clients get dramatic results from a single treatment.  The skin continues to improve for about 6 months after the last treatment.  More severe cases will benefit from more treatments.

What should I expect after a treatment?
You may experience redness, warmth, swelling, or tightness in the treated area, which typically fades within a few hours of treatment.  The skin may often have a pinkish tone for 5-7 days.  Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time.  Because the light pulses are confined to narrow columns in the skin, much of the skin is left unaffected and there is a quick healing process.  Most people notice positive changes in skin tone and texture within a few days.
