The majority of the average person’s beauty regimen is centered on rejuvenating dull skin. For those of you who fret over skin blemishes that come about due to stress and age, Omni Aesthetics offers you a long-lasting and effective remedy: laser skin resurfacing.

What Is Fractional Laser Resurfacing?

Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a skin-care procedure that provides hassle-free removal of skin issues like roughness, spots, wrinkles, and acne scars. This treatment is generally done on the face, but it can also be done on the hands, neck, or chest.

In this treatment, microscopic areas of the most superficial layer of the skin are treated with laser energy, triggering healing and leaving behind a more even skin tone and better texture. As sections of the upper layer of the skin are treated, the heat stimulates collagen production in the lower dermal layers.

It is called a fractional treatment because the CO2 laser beam is split up into several micro beams. This allows for treatment in a number of zones rather than removal of the entirety of the skin layer, making the procedure gentler and allowing untreated skin to heal the treated areas.

Due to its advanced technology, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing offers a laser beam spot size that is smaller and more focused to provided better precision.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Fractional Laser Resurfacing?

You are an ideal candidate for this procedure if you have a lighter skin tone and are looking to treat acne marks, even out your skin tone, or reduce fine age lines. Having lighter skin means that you have less of a chance of complications as a result of treatment. We will examine your skin type and recommend the best laser skin-resurfacing option.

Fractional CO2 is ideal for superficial skin marks. If your topical creams for acne-scar reduction or age-related pigmentation marks have not been working well enough, you may want to come in for this procedure.

How Is the Procedure Carried Out?

If you decide to come in for this skin treatment, we will first prepare your skin for the procedure. A local anesthetic cream will be applied over the target area. If the surface area being treated is large, you may be given painkillers as well. The skin is then cleansed of impurities.

The treatment is performed using the fractional CO2 laser beam over the area to be treated. After the procedure, the treated area will be dressed, and you may be given oral and topical medications to aid healing.

The treatment provides good results for sun-damaged skin and acne scars. The skin tone and texture improve. Due to collagen stimulation, you can expect firmer and stronger skin in a few months. In the field of aesthetic improvement, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing scores high because it promises quick recovery, little discomfort, and steady improvement of skin quality that lasts for years.
