With Fractional Skin Rejuvenation , the laser beam is broken up or fractionated into many small micro-beams. These micro-beams are separated so when they strike the skin surface, small areas of the skin between the beams are not effected by the laser and left intact. These small areas of untreated skin promote a much more rapid recovery and healing with less risk of complications. The small areas treated by the fractional micro-beams, called micro-treatment zones, cause sufficient laser treatment to promote new collagen production and resultant skin rejuvenation.
A very exciting aspect of Fractional Skin Rejuvenation is that unlike older ablative laser resurfacing techniques, the new Fractional Skin Rejuvenation Lasers appear to be safe to use on darker skin for Asian Skin Rejuvenation and African American Skin Rejuvenation
This makes the latest skin rejuvenation techniques available to millions of people with dark skin who could not be safely treated with previous skin rejuvenation techniques.
Fractional lasers are able to penetrate much deeper than traditional lasers and we are discovering that deeper penetration of the laser produces a much more dramatic stimulation of new collagen formation which translates into a plumping effect on the skin. This is particularly useful in treating pitted acne scars.
