Fractional Laser Resurfacing in Oklahoma City
By resurfacing the skin and stimulating the growth of collagen, advanced laser therapies can reverse skin damage and the signs of aging. This restores a more youthful appearance and rejuvenates the skin with minimal discomfort and downtime.
When to Undergo Fractional Laser Resurfacing in Oklahoma City
Depending on the extent of skin damage, patients can choose either superficial or deep fractional laser resurfacing. These therapies are ideal for resolving:
- Moderate to severe sun damage
- Rough texture or uneven skin tone
- Lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars, stretch marks, and other scars
- Superficial lesions
Laser therapies can be an excellent alternative to other techniques such as dermabrasion or chemical peels. They can also be used in combination with a healthy skin regimen or other applications such as dermal fillers.
How does it work?
Fractional laser resurfacing involves delivering tiny pulses of laser light to your skin. This creates thousands of microscopic holes. These micro-injury sites don’t damage the surrounding tissue, but they do stimulate your body’s natural healing responses. The development of new tissue rejuvenates the appearance of your skin.
How long will it take?
The procedure can take less than 30 minutes. However, if your condition is advanced, it may take longer. Your doctor can customize your therapy in order to address specific issues.
What are the advantages of Pixel Erbium superficial fractional laser resurfacing?
The Pixel system is one of the most gentle laser therapies available for addressing moderate sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and scars. Rapid healing is stimulated and patients experience virtually no downtime. Three to five treatments, roughly four weeks apart, are usually required for optimal results.
What are the benefits of SmartXide DOT CO2 deep fractional laser resurfacing?
DOT Therapy is more powerful and can target deeper wrinkles, stubborn sun damage, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. Because it treats only a fraction of the skin’s surface, it takes only a few days for the patient to heal completely, which is weeks ahead of most CO2 lasers. Excellent results can usually be achieved in a single session, but multiple sessions may be necessary to resolve more serious issues. DOT therapy produces near-permanent results that are only reversed by further sun damage and aging.
Will the procedure hurt?
Fractional therapies cause minimal discomfort that may resemble the feeling of sunburn. However, everyone’s pain tolerance is different, so be sure to discuss the issue with your doctor if you have any concerns.
