What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical treatment designed to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections, such as large pores, pigmentation, facial lines, wrinkles, and more. Our office uses fractional laser technology by Fraxel® to give your skin a softer and younger appearance. This is achieved when the laser makes small holes in the deeper layers of your skin. During your procedure, the laser handpiece will glide over your skin, targeting the areas that need to be reinvigorated. After the heat of the laser, you may feel cold air blowing on you; this is from the built-in cooling system. If you think you may need laser skin resurfacing, contact Dermatology Center of Dallas in Dallas TX to learn how our expert team can help you today.

What should I know about laser skin resurfacing with Fraxel?

Fraxel is a nonsurgical, non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing treatment that can treat many issues, such as fine lines and wrinkles, scarring on the surface of your skin, pigmentation, sun damage, and even actinic keratosis. Non-ablative lasers work by heating the underlying tissue of your skin without harming the surface. This helps to promote the production of collagen within the skin. This technology has integrated cooling to help keep you comfortable during the procedure.
