Laser peeling, fractional body resurfacing are different names for one procedure. Laser resurfacing is aimed at partial or complete fractional (point) treatment of the upper layer of the skin and dermis.
Thanks to the action of the beam, the surface of the epidermis begins to be actively processed. Moisture begins to evaporate in the processing areas. In another way, this process is called fractional laser rejuvenation.
The laser beam processes tissues pointwise or, in scientific terms, fractionally. At these points, old cells are evaporated along with collagen and elastin. The treated layer of the epidermis dries and peels off easily, allowing young cells to divide. Fractional resurfacing allows you to start the process of regeneration and restoration of the skin.
Fractional laser resurfacing of the body is fundamentally different from other care procedures. The laser acts not only on the epidermis, but also on the deeper layers such as the dermis.
How to prepare yourself for the procedure?
First of all, it is recommended to consult with a specialist before the procedure. If you need to treat a large area of skin at one time, will be required your general and biochemical blood test
You should refrain from smoking and alcohol, as well as from sunbathing, for two weeks. The use of scrubs should also be abandoned.
How is the resurfacing going?
Before fractional resurfacing of the body, the specialist cleans, disinfects and anesthetizes the selected area. It is usually anesthetized with a gel or ointment. The patient wears special glasses, to ensure safety.
The specialist treats the area with a laser, the parameters of which are adjusted before the procedure. Varieties of laser resurfacing involve a different number of sessions.
The site is preliminarily cleaned with a swab dipped in chlorhexidine. Before the procedure, the treatment area is anesthetized and disinfected. After finishing the skin resurfacing, sometimes a soothing agent is applied as needed for greater comfort.
