Abstract

Fractionated laser resurfacing leads to improvement of photodamaged skin, rhytides and acne scars. In contrast to non-fractionated ablative laser resurfacing, fractionated ablative laser resurfacing is associated with lower risk of complications and less downtime. Compared to fractional non-ablative resurfacing, fractional ablative laser resurfacing is more effective and does not require as many treatments. When used with caution, fractionated ablative and fractionated non-ablative laser resurfacing is safe and effective for patients with higher Fitzpatrick skin types.
