Fractional resurfacing treats sun damage by reducing fine lines and unwanted pigmentation while boosting the skin’s natural collagen production to renew its firmness and tone.
Also known as Fraxel, Mosaic, ProFractional, ActiveFX, Lux1540 and Affirm (among others), all fractional resurfacing follows the same premise: microscopic columns of the skin are ablated while leaving surrounding areas intact. This is why fractional resurfacing offers dramatically less recovery time than skin resurfacing procedures used in the past, with comparable results after a series of treatments in many cases.
Dermatologists and plastic surgeons generally recommend about three sessions for optimal results, and each treatment comes with minimal downtime and mild side effects that include redness and swelling, which subside within a few days.
