What to expect from fractional resurfacing laser treatment in Newport Beach

Skin resurfacing has been a common dermatological treatment for many years. Early resurfacing posed several risks due to its aggressive, ablative nature. Today, non-ablative laser resurfacing allows men and women to address skin concerns and experience the stimulation of collagen for improvement in tone and texture.

At Arta Dermatology, we use a fractional resurfacing laser to treat our patients from Newport Beach and surrounding areas. Fractional laser technology creates tiny wounds on the skin, but leaves a good portion of the treatment area intact. It is from this healthy skin that accelerated healing begins.

With laser resurfacing, we can efficiently address:

  • Sun spots and other sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring or other minor scarring
  • Uneven skin texture and tone

Non-ablative resurfacing is a gentle path towards more beautiful skin

Non-ablative laser resurfacing is much less aggressive than ablative resurfacing procedures. We perform this gentle treatment in our Newport Beach office. We begin with cleansing the skin and applying a protective covering over the eyes. A water-based gel may be applied to the skin prior to the application of laser light as an extra protective measure. During treatment, laser energy is pulsed against the skin. Beneath the surface, collagen is damaged by this energy. The response is an accelerated production of new collagen. Skin is not removed during this type of procedure.

Most people who seek improvement in the appearance of their skin achieve the best results through a series of treatments scheduled a few weeks apart. Each treatment further stimulates new collagen, which tightens and tones skin from the inside out.

Due to the gentle nature of non-ablative laser skin resurfacing, there are only slight after-effects. Following treatment, the skin may appear slightly swollen and red. Patients may apply makeup and resume normal activities right away. Practicing excellent sun protection after laser resurfacing is beneficial for the longevity of results.
