Skin fractional resurfacing is a skincare procedure to remove the skin layer by layer with precision. This method can improve skin texture and make it look healthier and younger. After skin resurfacing, new skin cells will form and give the skin a tighter, brighter look.
Skin resurfacing treatment can be carried out in a number of ways ranging from laser and other energy-based treatments to chemical peels, ablative and non-ablative methods. Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most effective ways to reduce age spots, deep wrinkles, acne scars, as well as to tighten and rejuvenate skin. In this article we will talk about different skin resurfacing methods and their benefits.
What is skin fractional resurfacing?
Skin fractional resurfacing is an efficient method that is performed by a device called the fractional laser. During this non-invasive treatment, the device targets a fraction of the skin and sends micro beams of laser light into the deep layers of it.
Fractional laser will create narrow columns of tissue coagulation that can stimulate a natural healing process and result in the fast growth of healthy new tissue. This treatment can be used on face, neck, arms, chest and hands.
Fractional resurfacing is an excellent way to reduce:
- Fine lines
- Deep wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Sagging skin
- Age spots
- Sun damage
This procedure yields long-lasting results with little to no down time. For best results you can repeat a series of treatments with one- to four-week intervals.
Application of fractional laser:
- The gliding gel acts as a contact lubricant
- Treatment will take about 30 minutes
- The use of a strong anesthetic cream is essential
- A cooling device should be used to reduce discomfort during the procedure
Skin resurfacing treatments
There are a number of procedures that you can choose from to enhance and rejuvenate your skin, including, but not limited to:
- Laser treatments
Also known as laser peel, and laser vaporization, this treatment is used to improve aging and sun-damaged skin, the look of fine lines and warts. You can use laser treatment to resurface the entire face, remove discoloration, and tighten sagging skin.
Types of laser:
- Ablative lasers: This treatment removes the outer layer of skin and stimulates collagen production.
- Non-ablative lasers: This method reduces the appearance of scars, sun-damage, wrinkles, and age spots.
- Chemical Peels
In this treatment, resurfacing is achieved through the application of a solution to rejuvenate the look of skin, remove damaged layers, smooth complexion, and tighten the skin.
Chemical peels fall into two categories:
- Light chemical peels; and
- Deep chemical peels
This treatment is done using small, sharp, thin needles on the skin. Microneedling stimulates elastin and collagen production.
Morpheus8 is a non-surgical treatment and a minimally invasive option for skin and body rejuvenation. It is a state-of-the-art technological device that combines micro-needling and radiofrequency to perform subdermal remodeling of loose skin, eyelid festoons and malar swelling, puffy eyelids and adipose (fat) tissue.
Dermal fillers can improve skin contouring, fill in fine lines, restore volume and fullness to the face, and relax muscles that create or add to wrinkles and frown lines.
During this treatment, the professional will use a broad spectrum of light wavelengths to rejuvenate skin and treat pigmentation problems.
Botox injections work by blocking nerve contraction and weakening certain muscles to smooth wrinkles.
How to remodel facial skin
Remodeling facial skin is a treatment method that stimulates the cells, lifts the muscles and sculpts the face. It uses a combination of targeted massage techniques and three currents (galvanic, low to medium frequency, and high frequency) to reshape, firm and re-sculpt the facial skin.
Remodeling treatment can activate skin’s deeper regeneration processes, boost the effects of products such as serums and creams, and regenerate and rejuvenate the skin.
Results of remodeling facial skin include:
- Less marked wrinkles
- More clearly defined facial contour
- More pronounced cheekbones
- Refreshed and regenerated skin
- Wider looking eyes
