Laser skin resurfacing is done with the goal of removing and replacing damaged skin with new skin layers using radiation from concentrated pulsed light. This treatment helps in reducing facial wrinkles and other skin irregularities like blemishes or acne marks and scars. Skin resurfacing may be done superficially or deep.

Fractional Laser for Skin Resurfacing
How does Fractional laser for skin resurfacing work?
Fractional lasers use micro beams in a fractional manner, leaving areas of untreated skin intact between beams of laser. Fractional lasers can work in two ways: they can work on the superficial skin epidermis and can also give effective results when used deep in the dermis area (inner layer of the skin). The superficial laser uses high energy beams that cause micro peeling of the skin pigments in the superficial layer while the deeper laser, although working in the same way, targets the deeper layers of the skin. Fractional Skin resurfacing promotes faster wound healing by stimulating collagen production and remodeling.
Is the treatment painful? Is it safe? How long will the treatment take?
Just like any other laser treatment, a tolerable pain may be expected. A topical anesthesia will be applied 30 minutes before the treatment, as required by the patient. Treatment duration may range from 15 minutes to an hour depending on the treatment area. Only Lasers which are FDA approved are considered safe and used in Everlast.
How many treatments will I need to see results and how long will it stay?
Results are seen right after the treatment but more significant ones can be expected to show in the coming weeks to 6 months. When skin is properly taken care of, results may be permanent without the need of retreatment.
