Because the laser leaves behind small bridges of untreated skin, the healing time is reduced. These lasers reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and can also help to soften deeper lines. They also noticeably improve skin tone and texture. Fractional lasers can also treat scars, including acne scars. Multiple treatments may be required to achieve optimal results.
