A good daily skin care regimen and regular facials are great for keeping your skin healthy, but what if you’re ready to hit the reset button on your skin completely? That’s where skin resurfacing comes in. In fact, there were over 3.3 million skin resurfacing procedures in the United States in 2022.
While there are many ways to resurface the skin, Dr. Manuel Lopez and the team here at Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery & L Med Spa offer an advanced fractional laser skin resurfacing technology — the ProFractional laser from Sciton®.
Here are three benefits you can expect from your ProFractional laser skin resurfacing.
1. Calling on collagen
Our ProFractional laser is so effective because it stimulates collagen production.
Collagen is the protein responsible for supporting all of the tissues in your body, including your skin. Over time, your collagen can break down due to exposure. Furthermore, your production of collagen wanes with age. As a result, your skin is breaking down faster than your slowing collagen production can keep up with.
Our ProFractional laser technology creates a matrix of tiny microchannels in the deeper layers of your skin. Your body registers these channels as intrusions and sends in resources to plug the tiny holes — you guessed it, collagen.
As a new flood of collagen arrives, it lifts your skin from below, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and lifting sagging skin.
2. Laser skin resurfacing is fast
In just 30-60 minutes, we can complete your entire laser skin resurfacing treatment. To start, we apply a topical anesthetic on your skin to ensure your comfort. Then, we get to work. The ProFractional system is easy to use and works quickly to treat your target area.
Depending on your goals, we may recommend multiple laser skin resurfacing treatments. We space these apart to allow time for your skin to respond between treatments.
3. Results that look natural and last
Once you see the final results, they’re yours to enjoy for a year or more. Since laser skin resurfacing works with your body’s own resources to provide new support for your skin, your results are both natural and long-lasting.
You’ll look refreshed and renewed rather than like you’ve had extensive work done.
