What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing in Boston works by creating thousands of perforations that are microscopic in size. Our skilled team of providers uses a device called a fractional laser to deliver precise microbeams of laser light into the lower layers of skin, creating deep, narrow columns of tissue coagulation. The healthy skin around these perforations begins to heal quickly after the treatment, improving your complexion to an even and youthful appearance. This natural healing process results in the fast growth of healthy new tissue. This laser treatment generally takes less than 30 minutes. 


What are the benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Our Technicians at SkinHealth Centers have seen our Boston and Wellesley Hills Fractional Laser patients enjoy the following benefits from their treatment:

  • Minimizes sun damage, acne scars, and fine lines
  • It improves skin texture and evens skin tone
  • Stimulates collagen for firmer, more youthful skin
  • It may help treat pre-cancerous skin lesions
  • Minimal downtime

Who are the best candidates for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Results can eliminate years of stress and anxiety, offering restored skin and a refreshed mindset. While any adult can be a good candidate for Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing, there are specific aesthetic characteristics that great candidates share, such as:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkle resurfacing
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Stretch marks

What to expect on the day of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

When you arrive at SkinHealth Centers for your Laser Skin Resurfacing, we may offer to apply some numbing cream over the treatment site to make you have a more comfortable experience; however, this is not necessary. You may also be provided with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser, depending on the location of the treatment area. At this time, a skilled technician will use the Fractional Lasers on the targeted site to break up the laser energy into thousands of tiny beams. These beams will treat only a fraction of the skin in the area, helping the healing process occur faster with little downtown. Fractional lasers are efficient and not painful for most patients, as only a mild prickling sensation can be felt.
