Skin resurfacing is a wonderful way to rejuvenate the skin and diminish signs of age such as wrinkles, and age spots. There are several light and laser technologies that are used for skin rejuvenation, including ProFractional laser treatment. In the Minneapolis-St. Paul area ProFractional skin resurfacing is an effective wrinkle treatment (click here), and it also improves the overall appearance of the skin.
ProFractional laser treatment is a quick and efficient skin resurfacing option that rejuvenates the skin with almost no downtime. The ProFractional laser works by creating small micro-channels in the skin, which cover specific zones in the treatment area. These treated areas are surrounded by sections of untreated skin that help to stimulate the natural healing process in the body. As a result, healing time is quick when compared to other skin resurfacing techniques that treat the entire upper surface of the skin.
It typically takes 2 to 4 ProFractional treatments to achieve optimal results. ProFractional treatment can provide very dramatic results, and it also improves patient comfort, and reduces healing times.
ProFractional treatment can be done on its own, or in may be combined with other treatments such as the MicroLaser Peel. The MicroLaser Peel is designed to improve the tone and texture of the skin, by removing the top layer of damaged skin cells. New skin cells appear as the skin heals, and this fresher, healthier skin has fewer wrinkles. The MicroLaser Peel also corrects sun damage, and other signs of aging. It also tightens the underlying dermal layer.
