Fractional Laser Resurfacing In Southport For Uneven Skin Tone

If you have uneven skin tone, you may want to consider fractional laser resurfacing as a treatment option. This treatment can improve the appearance of your skin by reducing discoloration and improving skin texture. Fractional resurfacing uses laser energy to create micro-injuries in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process. This results in new, healthy skin cells that can help improve the overall appearance of your skin.

How Does It Work To Address Uneven Skin Tone?

Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment that uses a device to deliver a laser beam divided into thousands of microscopic treatment zones, targeting a very small area (or fraction) of the skin at a time. This precision treatment is similar to an image on a screen being enhanced pixel by pixel. It works by using controlled thermal effects, which create columns of heat in the skin.
This controlled trauma immediately stimulates an inflammatory response, triggering your body’s natural defenses while your system gets to work to soothe, reinforce and regenerate the treatment site.
Fractional laser resurfacing is revolutionary in that it bridges the gap between the ablative and non-ablative laser techniques. Ablative laser treatments work by removing the surface skin cells, (the epidermis) and non-ablative treatments work solely on the dermal collagen layer, which is the mid-layer of the skin. Fractional laser treatment works at both the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. By working simultaneously at these two levels, it’s particularly effective in dealing with uneven skin tone.

What Does It Treat?

Fractional laser resurfacing addresses a wide range of skin unevenness and scarring concerns.
One of the main uses is to smooth skin texture and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. If you have uneven skin tone due to scars left by acne, as a result of surgery, or from injury, fractional laser resurfacing is also suitable for this. If your skin has been overexposed to the rays of the sun and it has damaged your skin, it can help with this too. It’s also very effective in minimising age spots.
While it’s suitable for most to reduce uneven skin tone, it’s not suitable for you if you have certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis.


There is very little downtime associated with this specific type of treatment for uneven skin tone, though it is usual for your skin to be a little darker in colour and slightly sore for a few days. As your skin heals, it’s important that you keep the treatment area clean and out of direct sunlight in order to ensure optimal recovery under the best conditions.
