What To Expect
How it works
Fractional laser resurfacing utilizes a high energy laser beam to soften fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and remove brown spots and other skin irregularities. Additionally, fractional resurfacing stimulates the formation of underlying collagen, meaning many patients see continued improvement for years to come. The name ‘fractional’ refers to the fact that only a fractional level of the skin is treated during each session. This means faster healing and speedier collagen production, all with less downtime than many other traditional resurfacing methods.
How we do it
Dr. Day’s Thulium and Erbium Laser Treatments are considered a ‘fractional treatment’, meaning it creates hundreds of deep columns through the skin called microscopic treatment zones. This means only a percentage of the skin is affected during each laser pass, reducing healing time, promoting natural regeneration of collagen, and rejuvenating skin cells.
The treatment itself lasts approximately 20 minutes, however you should plan for a 60-minute visit as Dr. Day and her team usually apply a topical anesthetic cream prior to treatment to minimize discomfort.
Patients can expect 4-7 days of downtime due to redness, mild swelling, dryness, and flaking. Dr. Day recommends using her soothing post-procedure skin care, which consists of clinically proven restorative nectars, creams, and serums for optimal healing. Makeup can often be worn starting the day after treatment.
