Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

Considered by many to be an expert in the area of cosmetic medicine, Leon Turovsky, MD, performs the latest treatments in his Brooklyn, New York, practice. Among the procedures Leon Turovsky, MD, performs are fractional laser skin-resurfacing treatments.

Skin resurfacing is of particular interest to individuals who wish to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and skin imperfections. CO2 ablative laser resurfacing treatments have been used since 1995 to reduce visible signs of aging. However, this type of laser treatment has some disadvantages. It has a relatively long recovery period, and individuals who undergo this treatment might experience persistent skin redness after treatment and even certain treatment complications, such as infections.

A more recent development, fractional laser resurfacing, provides the positive effects of more traditional CO2 laser resurfacing but with fewer negative aftereffects. Complications are less likely with this new treatment, and recovery time is considerably shorter. This is because the fractional laser-beam treatment leaves small areas of skin intact, thus making the procedure less risky. However, it still encourages collagen production, which gives the skin a more youthful appearance.
