Keep Father Time From Marching On: New Laser Treatments Offer Gentle and Effective Skin Resurfacing in a Flash
Date:2/3/2008

SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- For most people, the significant downtime involved in undergoing an invasive laser resurfacing procedure to reverse the obvious signs of aging skin is not realistic given today's busy, deadline-driven lifestyle. Now, a number of new minimally invasive laser skin resurfacing technologies are delivering noticeable improvements for people looking to freshen up their look without spending weeks under wraps, as is common with their invasive counterparts.

Speaking today at the 66th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology (Academy), dermatologist Jeffrey S. Dover, MD, FAAD, associate clinical professor of dermatology at Yale University Medical School in New Haven, Conn., shared his professional experience with three of the newer laser skin resurfacing procedures being used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, photodamage and uneven skin pigmentation.

"The search for safe and effective treatments to improve and rejuvenate the tone, color and texture of the aging face is never ending," said Dr. Dover. "Today, patients are interested in gentler skin rejuvenation options than those used previously, such as the CO2 laser, and will trade less dramatic results for less downtime and few, if any, side effects."

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

One of the most versatile new laser technologies being used to treat aging skin is fractional laser skin resurfacing. Numerous clinical studies have shown this technology to be safe and effective in treating patients of all skin types, including skin of color, for fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and even acne scars.

Fractional laser resurfacing works by targeting damaged skin in columns of microscopic treatment zones, which include the outermost and underlying layers of skin known as the epidermis and the dermis. Fractional laser resurfacing thermally damages the tiny columns of skin while the surrounding healthy skin is left intact.
