Fractional Resurfacing Skin Shedding

Have you ever seen a celebrity, or even someone you know, seemingly take decades off their “skin life” overnight? Refined Dermatology carries over 20 lasers designed to tighten, smooth, and injure-then-repair skin. Lasers work by “injuring” the skin in a controlled environment so that new, younger, healthier skin can be revealed. It’s in this controlled injury that repair takes place, which requires the body’s natural production of collagen.

What is Fractional Resurfacing

Fractional resurfacing is the utilizing of fractional lasers to treat a variety of skin issues. Many celebrities depend on lasers to turn back the clock. A great example is to take a look at Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger in the first season compared to later seasons. Her skin, particularly on her neck and chest, went from looking like the 50-something woman that she is—complete with wrinkles, sun damage, and freckles—to that of a 20-something. That wasn’t (just) makeup and lighting. It was the power of fractional resurfacing at work.

Lasers utilize a wide range of strengths, types, and approaches. The only way to know which is right for you is with a consultation. However, knowing that you depend on local experts with dozens of lasers and hand tools at the ready means you’ll be matched with the right lasers for you. You don’t have to settle for just what the dermatologist has on hand.

Many clients pair laser therapy with complementary treatments, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections or microneedling to further increase their results. However, lasers are by far the most powerful tool for resurfacing the skin. They can reduce wrinkles, remove sun damage, and minimize freckles. They tighten, refine, and make skin look instantly younger. There can be a short amount of downtime depending on laser type and the treatment, but this often means simply avoiding direct sunlight for a few days and not scheduling a big event within 48 hours of your treatment.
