This treatment allows for shorter downtime of 4 to 7 days compared to full face resurfacing and has the added effect of thermal stimulation of collagen formation, stimulating a rejuvenation and tightening effect in the dermis. Fractional laser resurfacing is an excellent way of maintaining a youthful and smooth appearance of the skin, treating facial acne scarring, and as an adjunct to surgical facial rejuvenation procedures.
At Polaris Plastic Surgery, we partner with Illumia Medical
to provide patients with options of fractional non-ablative (Discovery PICOTM) and ablative (Smartxide CO2TM) laser resurfacing services. Depending on your needs and tolerance for downtime, your plastic surgeon will recommend the appropriate form of laser resurfacing for you.
