HOW DOES Fractional Skin Resurfacing IT WORK?
Laser skin resurfacing uses fractional microbeam technology to emit columns of laser energy deep into the skin. It will selectively target and break down scar tissue or textural imperfections. When the energy is delivered into microbeams it allows the body’s natural healing process to create new healthy cells faster, reducing any potential experienced downtime. The increase of collagen and elastin will help to rebuild depth loss and smooth out skin textures.
