Do you peel after fractional laser? | laser skin resurfacing

Famous facial plastic surgeons promote laser skin resurfacing. Why? To be more specific, it heals many skin problems with surprising outcomes. Granular CO2 skin light exfoliation removes sun-damaged skin, leaving it smoother and younger. It also boosts collagen formation, firming and tightening the skin.

How is laser skin resurfacing done?

Fractional Laser uses the laser to provide brief, concentrated pulsing pulses to treat targeted areas. This light removes dull, damaged skin layer by layer. Laser skin resurfacing’s tailored method reduces hypopigmentation, or skin whitening, during laser scar removal. The laser beam heats the dermis and removes the epidermis during laser resurfacing. This action promotes collagen fibre growth. New skin will be firmer and smoother while recovering.
