5 Key Benefits of Fractional Lasers for Your Skin

If this sounds appealing to you, then take a look at this list of some of the key benefits of fractional lasers for the skin.

What Occurs During Fractional Laser Treatment?

During halo hybrid fractional laser treatment, a physician applies high-intensity bursts of high heat over short durations to cleanse the skin of imperfections.

Fractional laser treatment can prove very effective at resolving common skin issues without resorting to invasive surgery.

The collagen production stimulated by fractional laser treatment has the ability to provoke the skin to become healthier and more radiant. This occurs naturally over time, leading to myriad positive benefits patients can enjoy for a long time.

1. Fractional Lasers Encourage Collagen Production

One major benefit of fractional laser treatment is its ability to encourage the skin’s natural collagen production.

The lasers penetrate to the deeper layers of dermal tissues, which naturally stimulates collagen and elastin production. It can do this without damaging the surrounding skin and tissue.

Collagen is one of the major proteins that keep the skin youthful looking. However, this valuable benefit starts to slow down as soon as a patient’s mid 20s.

2. Fractional Lasers = Minimally Invasive

Another major benefit of fractional laser treatment is that the treatment is minimally invasive. This connotes a number of beneficial elements.

Minimally invasive treatments have the benefit of short recovery times and no incision sites. The lack of incision sites means less scarring than would occur in a full surgical procedure.

Fractional lasers touch just the outer layers of skin and do not damage the surrounding area.

3. They Effectively Treat Scars

Fractional lasers prove especially effective at removing scars resistant toward other types of treatment. This includes acne scars and surgical scars. For similar reasons, they can correct the unsightly effects of aging and sun damage.

Fractional lasers can penetrate the outer layer of the skin, producing a smoother and tighter epidermis in general.

4. Long-Lasting Results

Fractional laser treatment also carries the added benefit of having long-lasting results, which proves true despite the relatively casual and low-impact nature of the treatment.

Fractional lasers can encourage the skin to produce higher levels of collagen and elastin for several months beyond the initial treatment.

In this way, fractional laser treatments are passive and active, as the procedure offers immediate results and long-term gains made over time.

In addition, scheduling follow-up sessions can help ensure a patient applies the correct amount of skin maintenance to preserve and enhance their initial results.

5. Treatments Are Of A Short Duration

A full fractional laser treatment can be performed in under an hour. Coupled with the other low-impact treatments, this can prove a comfortable, convenient operation with long-lasting results.

Fractional lasers apply bursts of high intensity heat over short duration to cleanse skin imperfections. Overall, the procedure does nor last overly long.

Am I A Good Candidate for Fractional Laser Treatment?

Most people interested in fractional laser treatment will find they can qualify since the treatment is minimally invasive. Because no incisions are made, medical conditions rarely obstruct a patient from receiving treatment.

Of course, unique elements of a patient’s physiology can interact dynamically with a patient’s procedural experience. But even healthy individuals should engage in pre-surgical consultation before receiving treatment.
