Quanta ResurFACE® fractional laser resurfacing, also known as photothermolysis, is a revolutionary treatment that uses soft tissue coagulation and non-ablative skin resurfacing. Fractional laser is highly effective and unlike full surface laser the downtime is minimal. ERAZE uses the Quanta Fractional Laser to deliver light in an array of high precision micro beams. The beams penetrate into the dermis in narrow columns coagulating tissue. This activates the natural formation of healthy tissue and cellular debris is naturally eliminated as the skin is resurfaced.
The areas targeted by fractional laser skin resurfacing are spaced out at a microscopic level. The micro beams create tiny spots of treated skin that exist along side healthy untreated spots and allows the treated spots to heal faster because the untreated areas can maintain their integrity and aid in tissue recovery. Skin treated by fractional skin resurfacing recovers rapidly, leaving new and healthy tissue within a few days. The process provides not only faster recovery, but also greater safety. Skin may appear swollen or red and may be accompanied by some crusting. These symptoms usually subside within a week.
Treatments can be completed in 30 minutes or less. Fractional laser skin resurfacing is more economical in packages of multiple sessions and a general course usually consists of 4-6 treatments. Full results are not immediate but gradual and evidence of skin improving is seen more and more after each session. The full cosmetic benefits will be visible after 8-12 weeks. Treatments are generally easily tolerated, however those who are worried about sensitivity are welcome to apply topical numbing cream before coming.
