If your eyes are “seeing” their age, it may be time to consider doing something to give yourself a more youthful, rested and refreshed appearance. Eye surgery? Not always. If you’re a good candidate, laser resurfacing can take years off your appearance with minimal downtime.

The answer is a procedure known as fractional laser resurfacing. Fractional resurfacing means that only a “fraction” of the skin is treated with the laser. Hundreds or thousands of precise perforations in the skin are produced during the procedure. Resurfacing a fraction of the skin allows it to heal more quickly than with traditional full field resurfacing. Fractional resurfacing also reduces the risk of scarring, color changes (hypo or hyperpigmentation) and infections.

The brilliance of fractional laser resurfacing is that compared to full field (100%) resurfacing, the results are similar and offer dramatic reduction in wrinkles, scarring, pigmentation and pore size over a series of treatments. This all happens due to the production of new collagen. After fractional resurfacing, your skin looks tighter, firmer and more radiant.

Recent advances in fractional technology have given us a few options to choose from when considering which laser to use for this procedure. Today’s devices can create thermal or heat energy, referred to as “coagulation”, which can reach the deepest layers of the dermis during fractional resurfacing.

Before fractional resurfacing, only those with lighter skin types could undergo these procedures. Now, thanks to new lasers, anyone can enjoy the benefits of fractional laser resurfacing—even African-Americans.

Sounds too good to be true? Look at the amazing before and after photos below. This patient saw an incredible transformation from fractional laser resurfacing around the eyes. At Celibre Medical, we use the latest technology that encompasses coagulation and customization of the fractional pattern (amount of treated skin) to give you the most significant improvements in the fewest number of treatments.
