Improve the appearance of your skin with fractional laser resurfacing
Chances are, if you’re over a certain age, there’s a good chance that you’ve looked in the mirror at least once and wished that time would slow down just a little bit. At the Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center in Portland, Oregon, Dr. Adam Maddox and his team are committed to helping patients turn back the hands of time using a number of proven treatments and gentle, respectful care.
As part of their treatment arsenal, the team is proud to offer CO2 or fractional laser resurfacing treatments to revive the skin and help patients look as young as they feel. The changes that come after fractional laser treatment are not overwhelming or drastic, and patients will find a younger version of themselves looking back from the mirror.
What is fractional laser resurfacing?
Fractional laser treatment is used to improve the texture and tone of the skin with a low-risk, non-invasive treatment that uses a CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser that removes dead skin cells and sparks collagen production. With this treatment, the team can address pigmentation of the skin, such as age spots and freckles, while also improving firmness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. This treatment is one of the most advanced procedures available today. The laser can target damaged cells while leaving healthy skin untouched, allowing quicker recovery because only a fraction of the skin is affected during treatment. During recovery, the patient’s natural healing process will kick in to help create new tissue to replace the old and stimulate collagen production, which leads to firmer skin.
Will fractional laser resurfacing help me?
Fractional laser treatment can be used to help many individuals who want to improve the appearance of their face or body. It can be used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. It can also be used to remove scars from accidents, surgery, or acne. It can be used on stretch marks and make loose skin become firmer. It can also be used to address discoloration, or age spots, on the backs of hands. It’s a very versatile treatment that has helped numerous patients feel more confident about their appearance.
