Fractional laser skin treatment is an exciting new technology that successfully corrects many dermatological and cosmetic skin conditions, with increased comfort and minimal post-treatment pain and care. Fractional laser skin treatments give excellent results for skin resurfacing and when correcting skin conditions including scars, superficial lesions, epidermal nevi, actinic chelitis, warts, skin tags, and keratoses.
Fractional laser skin treatments create areas of treated tissue surrounded by untreated, healthy tissue. Some fractional skin treatments create narrow, deep columns that extend through the epidermis into the dermis through an array of intense laser energy microbeams. These columns can either be "non-ablative" (the laser beams coagulate the affected tissue) or "ablative" (the laser beams vaporize the affected tissue). The body's natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue to replace the columns of affected tissue – improving the skin condition being treated.
For fractional ablative treatments, downtime may be as short as 4 days as compared to traditional full-surface ablative treatments which can result in weeks to months of downtime.
Immediate contraction of collagen fibers reduces wrinkles and loose skin. Skin laxity is noticeably improved.
Removes pigmentation problems, reduces pore size, wrinkles, acne scars, and other textural irregularities.
Effective on dyschromia (discoloration from sun damage and aging) and on actinic keratoses (pre-cancerous cells that may be invisible to the naked eye).
I highly recommend Wellsprings Medical & her staff. She took the time to explain *everything* to me and was so kind and answered all of my questions both before the treatment and after. And yes, the IPL worked out great & was totally worth it...I'll be back! Also, if you are considering IPL this is a great place to go -- Wellspring Medical is awesome.
