Fractional Skin Resurfacing Service


Fractional Skin Resurfacing

Fractional Skin Resurfacing can be used to improve colouration, treat melasma, deep wrinkles and address deep acne pit scars.

It as also effective to tighten, smooth and rejuvenate your skin to produce a natural, younger looking appearance.

The treatments can be applied to many areas on your body, including your face, chest, back, arms and hands.

Only FDA approved technology is used with respect to any of the skin resurfacing treatments we provide.

This technology is used for skin resurfacing and soft tissue coagulation. This system uses patented fractional photothermolysis technology to smooth fine lines and wrinkles , improve skin coloration and to tighten the skin.

This fractional technology delivers an array of microbeams of light to create narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation.

These columns penetrate below the superficial layer of your skin, the epidermis, into the dermis while sparing the surrounding tissue from damage.

The coagulated tissue begins to heal naturally, accelerating the formation of new, healthy tissue and expels debris as the skin is resurfaced.

This coagulation and healing process promotes regeneration of the skin, evening out the texture and tone of the skin , and correcting aberrant pigmentation such as discolouration due to melasma.

The advantage in this technology is that the array of narrow beams stimulates rapid natural healing in the surrounding deep tissue, making this effective for deep corrections and promoting long term dermal remodeling.

The integrity of the outer layer of skin, the stratum corneum, is maintained throughout the treatment so that the tissue is protected against infection as it heals.

By promoting dermal remodeling, this procedure accelerates the production of collagen and elastin and encourages the formation of new, tighter tissue.

Over the course of a series of treatments,collagen production begins to increase, creating a healthy and more youthful appearance.

The 1540 Fractional technology can be used in conjunction with IPL Photofacials to produce the best results.

The 1540 technology can be used initially to aggressively treat loose, wrinkled skin, and then the IPL technology can be used to treat pigmentation problems and remove small, fine wrinkles.

The combination of these two treatments can help to effectively correct pigmentation, wrinkles and loose skin to produce softer, smoother, tighter and more youthful looking skin.

Depending on your skin type and your specific needs, a customized treatment plan can be arranged incorporating these and any other of our services which would be beneficial for you as an individual.

Which Skin Re-Surfacing Method to Choose?

CO2 laser resurfacing is an aggressive and painful procedure which requires anesthetics and significant downtime. CO2 lasers use more heat to promote skin resurfacing, so following treatment there is significant redness, often accompanied by bleeding and oozing.

Due to the aggressive nature of this treatment, there is also a significant risk of permanent hypo-pigmentation or hyperpigmentation. Abltative essentially refers to the removal of the top layer of skin, whereas non-abltative is not nearly as invasive and far more gentle on the skin.

Reliant’s Fraxel technology requires a topical anesthetic for pain management, and the procedure requires a blue tint applied to the treatment area to optimize treatment.

Palomar’s Fractional technology requires no anesthetic because it is not painful, no dyes will be applied to your skin, and there is virtually no downtime involved.

By carefully controlling the level and intensity of the treatment, Fractional technology presents a minimal risk of hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation, and can even be used to correct pigmented lesions.

Frequently asked questions?

Fractional skin resurfacing with Palomar uses laser energy microbeams to create areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. The body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, younger skin.

Fractional skin resurfacing works on almost all skin types. It helps to improve deepest wrinkles, surgical scars, correcting melasma and acne pit scars. We recommend to come in for the FREE CONSULTAION and discuss your options in detail with our experienced laser technician.

To see the best results, we recommend 4 to 6 sessions spaced 3 to 6 weeks apart. Multiple treatments are recommended because each session treats only 20-25% of the affected areas.

By treating only a portion of the skin, the surrounding skin and deep tissues can promote the healing process.

For the first 24 hours following treatment you may experience a slight sun burn-like sensation. Redness and mild to moderate swelling may accompany treatment will fade within 24-48 hours following treatment. A good moisturizer can be used to prevent flaking of the skin.

There is absolutely no downtime following treatment and makeup can be applied immediately following the session if desired although we recommend to let the skin breathe and heal itself.

Unlike related similar technologies, the treatment with Fractional Laser technology is not painful, yet you may experience a mild, snapping sensation during treatment, but no topical anesthetic is required.

The Fractional laser skin resurfacing technology can be used to promote long term dermal remodelling , help to repair and refresh age-damaged tissue, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improve colouration and tighten your skin.
