What is a fractional laser?

Fractional laser technology is the latest in skin resurfacing treatments. It works by sending short, concentrated beams of light deep into the skin to remove unhealthy tissue and stimulate new collagen growth.

Fraxel lasers are different from traditional lasers because they don’t damage the entire surface of your skin. Instead, they create tiny micro-injuries that leave the surrounding tissue untouched. This allows for quicker healing and less downtime.

What issues can fractional lasers treat?

Fractional lasers can be used to treat common concerns like:

  • Fine lines
  • Redness or pigmentation problems
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Dull complexion

Our top candidates for laser skin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing starts with a consultation at Dermatology Center of Dallas. Our professionals examine your skin and ask about your goals before recommending the best treatment plan possible. Ideal candidates for laser peels have realistic expectations and are in good health. Fraxel lasers are only safe if you don’t have active infections, skin diseases, or open wounds.

If you decide to move forward with cosmetic treatment, we provide specific instructions on how to prepare for your first session. This may include avoiding sun exposure and using certain skin care products.

Does laser skin resurfacing hurt?

On the day of your appointment, we clean your skin and glide a simple handpiece over the treatment area. You may feel some warmth from the laser, but the device contains a cooling system to help keep you comfortable. Treatments last 30 minutes to an hour, and most people in Dallas, TX see results after just one session. However, it is normal to require several sessions with our team before you can see your desired outcomes.

We understand people are concerned about if laser resurfacing is painful. Dermatology Center of Dallas uses the latest technology to minimize discomfort and maximize results.

What about recovery from laser skin resurfacing?

Recovery does involve some crusting and flaking based on the settings we use during treatment. These symptoms are usually mild and improve quickly. However, it is important to keep your skin hydrated and protected from the sun as it heals. You should also avoid waxing, shaving, and depilatory creams since they irritate the skin. Our post-care instructions detail everything you may need for a smooth and successful recovery.
