What is Photofractional Laser Treatment?

Julia Giyaur, MDIf you’re wanting to reduce the signs of aging but aren’t quite ready to go under the knife, the good news is you can turn to non-surgical ways to turn back time on your face. Technology for non-surgical facial rejuvenation techniques continues to evolve, and New York Laser Vision Aesthetics is pleased to offer the latest called Photofractional Laser Treatment.

Created to address even the early signs of aging, Lumenis® PhotoFractional™ Laser Treatment combines the benefits of intense pulsed light treatment (IPL) and non-ablative skin resurfacing (ResurFX). It addresses skin concerns such as pigmentation, age/sun spots, fine lines, texture, redness, blood vessels, pores and overall skin condition in a single visit. You can expect minimal downtime with visible results that are comparable to more aggressive techniques.

How does IPL and ResurFX work together?

IPL and ResurFX work together as a complete skin rejuvenation solution so that both skin tone and texture can be treated at the same time. IPL technology works to create even skin tone, and treat pigmentation, broken capillaries, rosacea and more. ResurFX treatment is a painless, non-ablative skin resurfacing laser treatment that reduces fine lines and pores, improves skin texture and stimulates collagen production. Stimulating collaging production is key to more youthful-looking skin.

Is it uncomfortable?

Your physician will apply a topical numbing cream to your face and may use air cooling during treatment to ensure you are comfortable. Sessions last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on what concerns are being treated. After treatment, you may experience some swelling, but it typically diminishes after a few hours. Redness may last for a few days. The best news is most patients can resume daily activities the same day as treatment.

How soon will I see results?

You may notice an improvement in skin tone and pigmentation after the first session, but it will take a series of 3-5 treatments in 2- to 6-week intervals for full results. Some continue to see improves in their skin for up to six months after treatment.
