AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser
Fractional skin resurfacing is a revolutionary delivery system that increases the possibilities for busy people who want healthy, younger-looking skin with minimal discomfort and downtime. As the name suggests, fractional laser treatments treat only a fraction of the skin at a time, leaving bridges of untouched skin that aid in the healing process and reduce recovery times thus enabling you to return to normal activities quicker than traditional CO 2 treatments.
The AcuScan 120 Fractional Wrinkle Reduction system treats the deep layers of your skin to promote new collagen growth and improve your skin tone. The end result is a dramatic improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, and skin tone and texture that will continue to improve for six months following treatment.
Palomar Lux 1540 Fractional Laser
The Palomar Lux 1540 Fractional Laser is a non-ablative approach to skin resurfacing. It sends microbeams of light into the dermis to create columns of healthy new tissue, which results in a fresher, more youthful skin tone and texture.
Some people experience redness, warmth, swelling, or tightness in the treated area. The skin may have a pinkish tone for five to seven days. Generally, you can receive a skin treatment in Sacramento and return to work or other activities without any recovery time.
A series of treatments at three- to six-week intervals are required to achieve the desired results. Most people see a positive difference in skin tone and texture within a few days.
Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs
How long does treatment last?
Most facial peels take less than 30 minutes to complete while fractional laser treatments can take up to an hour. Exactly how long your treatment will take to perform will depend on the size and number of treatment areas.
Is it painful?
Thanks to the application of a topical numbing agent, skin resurfacing is not painful.
What should I expect after treatment?
There is very little downtime with most skin resurfacing treatments. However, sun protection is essential and you must wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and avoid exposing the treatment area to direct sunlight for at least three months after treatment. Some redness, swelling and discomfort are normal but should subside over time.
What are the benefits of skin resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing offers several benefits, including:
- Minimally invasive
- No incisions or anesthesia
- Fewer complications and risks than surgical cosmetic procedures
- Little to no downtime
How do I maintain my results?
Good skin care and healthy lifestyle habits can help keep your skin looking young, fresh and healthy after your initial treatment. Repeat treatments are also recommended to prolong your results.
How much does treatment cost?
The exact cost of your treatment will depend on several factors, including the type of treatment (i.e., whether it is a facial peel or fractional laser treatment), the number of sessions needed and the treatment size. Our team can provide you with a specific cost estimate after meeting with you and evaluating your aesthetic needs and goals.
