Bad news – Oscars postponed until April 2021. Good news is you have time to get your skin in red carpet shape! Get to know what the fractional laser can do for you:
Discolorations or brown spots from the sun, fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin, scars – even precancerous lesions can all be improved with fractional laser treatments. Fractional lasers are lasers that treat a fraction - or percentage - of the skin with each pass of the laser over the skin. These impacts then do their magic. The laser target is dermal water – heating the dermal layer of the skin and creating a microscopic wound. Healing from this wound stimulates collagen, elastin and skin matrix renewal. Also unique to fractional lasers is that as each impact heals, unwanted discoloration from sun damage is pushed out – leaving brighter, less blotchy skin.
