Fractional Resurfacing: A Primer

Have you ever wanted a “do over” with your skin? A chance to lessen or even erase the evidence you see of age, time in the sun, or acne scars? An approach called “fractional resurfacing” might be right for you. As the name suggests, this treatment “resurfaces” facial skin by removing the top layer of skin and revealing new, healthy skin in its place.

Resurfacing was introduced in the 1960s and featured a CO2 laser that successfully removed the tissue on the surface layer of skin, resulting in a smoother, tighter skin surface. That process has been improved by the fractional laser (hence the name fractional resurfacing). This new laser delivers tiny pinpoints of light to the skin, which allows speedier healing with lower risk.

Hyper-pigmentation, lip lines and eyelid lines, crows’ feet, sagging skin – these are just some of the reasons why people choose fractional resurfacing. This treatment has enjoyed a high success and satisfaction rate among patients, but it should be noted that not all dermatologists are equal in experience and safety. When it comes to your skin, you should entrust it only to a physician that has the knowledge and skill to perform highly technical procedures.

Dr. Zimmet has over twenty years of laser training and is a recognized leader in the fields of dermatology and phlebology (a branch of medicine dealing with vein issues). In fact, physicians in the U.S. and around the world have come to him for teaching and training.

If you’re serious about renewing your skin, why not go to someone who will be equally dedicated to patient care? Call our office today to schedule a free consultation so you can find out the best possible treatment for your skin. (512) 485-7700.
