Forum: Fractional Resurfacing

Fractional resurfacing provides a new and unique approach to laser skin resurfacing that eliminates most of the side effects of CO2 laser skin resurfacing (LSR), while reducing the healing time from a few weeks to a few days. A series of 4 to 6 treatments appears to achieve improvement in mild to moderate wrinkles and dyspigmentation that approach but are not quite as dramatic as LSR.
