When it comes to treating the visible signs of aging and other skin imperfections, fractional laser resurfacing is one of the fastest and least invasive ways to achieve smoother, tighter skin with no recovery or downtime.

What is Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
Men and women who want to improve their skin but avoid needles and surgery often choose fractional laser resurfacing to restore a radiant glow to their skin. Using fractionated laser technology, this rejuvenation technique treats several microscopic columns of skin per second.
Delivering tiny punctures to the skin that are invisible to the naked eye and cause no bleeding, fractional laser resurfacing removes damaged areas of skin while leaving surrounding healthy skin intact. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, producing new collagen and elastin to improve the structure and elasticity of treated areas.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
The precision and accuracy of fractional laser resurfacing makes it safe to use on multiple areas of the body and for a wide range of skin imperfections such as:
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Light scarring
- Loose skin
- Textural irregularities
- Skin that is dull in color
Am I a Good Candidate for Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
Healthy men and women who are seeking a non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation and who have no contraindicating skin or medical conditions may be candidates for fractional laser resurfacing. During your consultation, Dr. Dadurian will evaluate your skin type and condition as well as discuss your cosmetic expectations and goals. While fractional laser resurfacing is safe, some skin types may have an increased risk of adverse effects, which will be discussed with you by Dr. Dadurian prior to treatment.
Are There Any Side Effects?
While other laser therapies can leave the skin red and blistered for an extended amount of time, fractional laser resurfacing offers minimal downtime and healing. Since this advanced technology only treats fractions of skin at a time, post-treatment recovery is faster, allowing patients to return to normal activities within a day or two.
A reddish pink hue to the skin after treatment is normal and ensures that new, healthy skin growth is taking place. Although patients often experience smoother, glowing skin immediately after treatment, the production of new collagen and elastin will continue to improve treated areas over several weeks.
