Many dermatological and cosmetic skin conditions can be improved with fractional laser skin resurfacing, a new technology developed by Palomar and available at Arcadia Dermatology.  

Fractional skin resurfacing uses laser energy microbeams to create areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. These areas can be either "non-ablative" (the laser beams coagulate the affected tissue) or "ablative" (the laser beams vaporize the affected tissue).  Non-ablative procedures are minimal to no downtime procedures, while ablative procedures provide a single treatment option.  The body's natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin.
