At Arta Dermatology, Irvine CA residents benefit from safe and effective fractional laser treatment
The fractional laser is safe and effective for patients in Irvine CA, Newport Beach, and the surrounding area when in the skilled hands of Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Arta Farshidi, at Arta Dermatology.
The fractional laser is not a technology that merely treats the surface of the skin. It is designed to treat the outermost skin and underlying tissues, but it does so safely.
Instead of removing the surface layers like traditional, ablative laser therapies, fractional lasers create microscopic dots. This type of controlled damage stimulates a healthy process; it encourages your body’s natural production of collagen. These collagen proteins are responsible for your skin’s youthful appearance and texture. Existing collagen degrades and the production of new collagen can diminish due to natural, age-related processes and to extrinsic factors, such as the environment, sun exposure, and smoking.
By combining powerful yet gentle wavelengths to penetrate underlying skin structures and stimulate collagen, fractional lasers are free of the risks associated with ablative or wounding lasers that affect the lower layers of skin but remove tissue to do so. The risks of older-generation lasers include:
- Very pronounced and lingering redness
- Worsening of skin conditions such as rosacea
- New pimples
- Skin lightening or darkening
Arta Dermatology’s use of advanced laser therapies avoids these risks. With conventional therapies, there has been the possibility you could end up with some of the same types of conditions that you wanted to treat, only as side effects post-treatment. With the fractional laser’s precision approach, there is no trauma to heal from. Healing is helped along by nearby tissue that is not touched by energy from the laser during the procedure.
With all procedures, trust the beauty and health of your skin to an experienced specialist. Call (949) 531-7111 to schedule a consultation.
