FRACTIONAL SKIN RESURFACING
REVEAL YOUR BEST SKIN WITH FRACTIONAL!
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing is an FDA approved fractional laser technology that helps restore your skin to its original, perfect texture to achieve smoother, fresher, younger looking skin.
One of the premier fractional lasers is the Palomar Icon 1540, a non-ablative erbium laser that is part of the Palomar Icon Aesthetic System. This laser delivers light to the skin through an array of high precision microbeams that penetrate the skin deep into the dermis. This creates narrow, deep columns of skin coagulation, surrounded by healthy, untreated skin. This causes the skin to repair itself by replacing old, sun damaged skin with new, younger, healthier skin. Since the Icon 1540 delivers fractionated light, the treatments are safer and produce consistent results.
The main benefits of fractional resurfacing are significant reductions in fine lines, pigmentation and scarring and improves textural irregularities, and dull tone. This procedure boosts collagen production, so you will also notice an overall tightening of your skin.

WHAT CAN FRACTIONAL SKIN RESURFACING DO FOR YOU?
ACNE SCAR TREATMENT
The fractional laser has the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin’s surface, various degrees of acne scarring and hyperpigmentation can be treated. The depth and type of scarring will be factors in how effective the treatment is. Your aesthetician will discuss this with you during your consultation.
STRETCH MARK REMOVAL
Fractional laser resurfacing is an effective way to diminish stretch marks because it’s gentle, and treats both the epidermis and dermis skin layers. It’s commonly used to minimize the appearance of stretch marks on the breasts, stomach, thighs and arms. It’s important to note that the fractional laser will work best on newer stretch marks.
The fractional laser is so gentle on the skin, it’s ideal for treating the signs of aging on the face. Fractional laser resurfacing can make a difference in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, texture, and large pores. It can also stimulate collagen production, plumping the skin and improving its elasticity.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
For the best outcome we recommend 4-6 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. To maximize the benefits, a Fire & Ice Facial can be done between treatments to help remove the dead skin left behind after the treatment.
HOW CAN I PREP FOR THE TREATMENT?
Before coming to the appointment make sure that you are not taking any medications that cause photosensitivity and stop using Retinol products for 1 week prior to the treatment.
Please arrive at the appointment with clean skin, free from makeup, lotion, powder, etc.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
For the first 24 hours, your skin may feel sunburnt and appear quite red. No makeup or creams can be used on the skin, with the exception of specific post procedure products.
