Fractional Skin Resurfacing
Learn About the Palomar Laser in Albuquerque
The Palomar laser, available for fractional skin resurfacing at Albuquerque's Western Dermatology Consultants, offers laser skin treatment that improves color, smooths lines and wrinkles, and provides a mild degree of skin tightening. By only treating 20 to 25 percent of the skin at one time (a "fractional" amount), it encourages the untreated skin to drive healing. This means that the redness and irritation often associated with many other skin resurfacing methods do not occur.
In order for this fractional skin resurfacing to be truly successful, the Palomar laser should be administered in a series of sessions. A complete outcome will take longer to achieve, but you do not have to deal with the downtime of more aggressive treatments. Many of our clients require five sessions, with two to four weeks in between each. In the following months, new collagen will begin to form, and your skin will have a more youthful appearance.
The revolutionary fractional skin resurfacing technology can be applied to your face, neck, chest, and hands. Patients enjoy a diminishing of lines and wrinkles, as well as brown spots, surgical and acne scars, and pore size. Because it is a relatively gentle approach, and the Palomar laser bypasses the outer layer of skin, it allows patients to go about their daily lives almost immediately. No one needs to know that you've received fractional skin resurfacing.
