Fractionated Laser Q & A

What is fractionated laser?

As you age, collagen that keeps your skin soft and smooth begins to break down. The slow loss of collagen leads to wrinkling, sagging, and loosening of the skin. Thermage is a groundbreaking, noninvasive technique that regenerates collagen and restores fullness.

Fractionated laser has a number of significant benefits, including:

  • No anesthesia required
  • Nonsurgical
  • No downtime

After your session, your skin may tingle or feel slightly numb for a little while, but you can go right back to work, school, or your regular activities.

How does fractionated laser work?

Dr. Schneider expertly uses a fractionated laser to conduct your custom session. The laser treatment triggers collagen growth.

The laser is fitted with a small handpiece that pulses intermittently to tighten your skin. The tone and texture of your skin dramatically improves as the laser warms your skin and initiates a regenerative process that replaces damaged tissue with healthy, new tissue.

What areas of my body are treated with fractionated laser?

Several areas of your body respond especially well to rejuvenating therapy. It’s great for your:

  • Neck
  • Jaw
  • Face
  • Hands
  • Buttocks
  • Eyes
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Arms

Dr. Schneider meets with you prior to treatment to understand your needs and to outline a treatment plan that addresses your trouble areas and helps you achieve your skincare goals.

How long does a fractionated laser treatment take?

At Dr. Schneider’s practice, she conducts your Thermage session in a private, spa-like setting. Once you recline and get comfortable, the treatment only takes between 60 and 90 minutes, a remarkably short time for the outstanding results you get.

When will I see results from my fractionated laser session?

You’ll be pleased to see some results immediately, and your skin will continue to improve over the coming months.
