What is fractional skin resurfacing?

Fractional resurfacing uses patented radiofrequency technology to resurface and tighten your skin, treating wrinkles and removing acne scars. Tiny points in your skin called “Microthermal Treatment Zones” are treated so as to trigger skin regeneration, as well as new collagen production and regrowth. This treatment can result in a clear and brilliant complexion that you'll love.

What is the difference between Fraxel™ and Fractional Resurfacing?

Fraxel™ is one brand of fractional resurfacing technology using laser based delivery method. Dermedica's fractional resurfacing of choice is a technology using radiofrequency to create micro thermal zones. This fractional resurfacing technology causes a diffused impact in the deeper layers of the skin. The result is minimal inflammatory effects on the superficial layers of the skin, quicker recovery time and reduced side effects.

{slider How does fractional resurfacing work?}

Fractional resurfacing uses a patented radiofrequency technology that treats the skin in tiny points spaced out in a fine grid like the pixels in an image from a digital camera. These treatment points (called “Microthermal Treatment Zones”) trigger skin regeneration, as well as new collagen production and regrowth while the surrounding untreated area maintains the skins stability for support and accelerates the healing process. It rejuvenates the skin from the inside out to replace the old damaged skin with healthier fresher looking skin. The result is firmer, fuller skin with reduced wrinkles and sagging, and a smoother skin surface.
