The world of cosmetic surgery is constantly changing with the best solutions often getting lost in a mix of quick-fixes and untested methods. Fortunately, Dr. Patt is a professional Houston cosmetic surgeon who knows how to separate the gems from the snake oil. And if looking for the latest in treatments for spots and aging skin, you need to know all about fractional laser resurfacing.
1. It’s Top Rated
The practice of fractional laser skin resurfacing was recently named the best anti-aging breakthrough by none other than WebMD. In fact, it was also referred to as the “breakthrough of the decade.” It beat out other contenders such as new and improved wrinkle injections, antioxidants, peptides, vitamin A treatments, and anti-aging sunscreens.
2. Precision is Key
What makes the laser so outstanding is its ability to target damaged skin while leaving healthy skin unchanged. Targeted areas of the skin are precisely spread on a microscopic level that allows for the replacement of age spots and destroyed cells with healthy new and natural ones. The procedure is so precise it is often thought of as "Photoshopping for the Skin."
3. Low Risk Laser
The precision of fractional laser resurfacing is also what makes it low risk since only targeted cells are treated. It also creates the added benefits of better patient comfort and minimized risk over other lower energy, non-ablative laser treatments. Fractional laser resurfacing can also be done on areas not available with other procedures such as around the eyes, on freckles, for acne, scars, and more.
4. Cost of Fractional Laser Resurfacing
As a result of the above, patients can achieve their desired results without the worry and cost of scheduling numerous follow-up treatments associated with most of the low-energy laser options. In fact, many patients note dramatic improvement after just one or a few treatments. The experience our practice has gained over the years allows us to recognize and use the most effective equipment in the area of fractional laser resurfacing, and we are proud to use an expert combination of Active FX and the Deep FX system.
