Fractional Laser resurfacing
Fractional laser technology permits skin tightening and collagen stimulation without significant down time. Dr. Morgan will use this technology to help decrease fine lines and wrinkles, as well as decrease acne scarring and hyper-pigmentation in some patients. This treatment is done in the office with the assistance of a topical anesthesia. There is some mild discomfort and mild redness (like sunburn) that can last up to three days after the treatment. Dr. Morgan recommends that these treatments are done in series of 3-5 treatments, spaced at 2-3 week intervals.
Treatments take approximately thirty minutes with an additional thirty minutes for the topical numbing cream.
Patients should be out of the sun for the two weeks prior to treatment, and for two weeks after treatment. Sunscreen (SPF 30 with titanium or zinc) is strongly recommended after treatment.
