How does fractional laser skin resurfacing work?
Skin Resurfacing Lasers deliver light to the skin causing the cells to release proteins that stimulate new collagen and elastin generation. The laser light is tricking the skin into thinking it has been injured and activates the wound healing pathway in the skin. This is the same pathway that generates skin when we get a paper-cut or scrape. The minute columns of light produced by the laser start the bodies’ natural healing process that forms new, healthy tissue. This generation of new tissue is what treats away the skin’s imperfections such as wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and surgical scars.
