Fractional Resurfacing is a revolutionary noninvasive laser therapy designed to dramatically improve skin texture and pigmentation, including the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and surgical scars, brown spots, melasma, and stretch marks without significant downtime.

Men and women who want to even skin tones or improve pigmentation, anyone with fine lines, acne scars, surgical scars, brown spots, skin discoloration, Melasma, stretch marks, large visible pores, skin tightening, and anyone seeking overall skin rejuvenation.
How does this laser differ from our other lasers?
This laser delivers light to the skin through an array of high precision micro beams that penetrate the skin deep into the dermis. This creates narrow, deep columns of skin coagulation, surrounded by healthy, untreated skin. This causes the skin to repair itself by replacing old, sun damaged skin with new, younger, healthier skin. Fractional resurfacing with the 1540 Laser is much less invasive compared to ablative laser procedures, resulting in a faster recovery time.
