What the Frac3® Laser Does

Put simply, Dr. Gartside uses this advanced technology to target problem areas of the skin and prompt the body’s natural healing response and structural proteins to greatly improve the appearance.

More technically, T3 skin tightening treatment uses the Frac3 laser to selectively introduce micro-wounds to damaged or aged skin. Creating a three-dimensional matrix of these small indentations at specific depths allows for full absorbsion of targeted laser energy in the smallest capillaries and blood vessels. This, in turn, stimulates fibroblasts and collagen production – both of which are necessary for tighter skin, smaller pores, and improved skin tone and texture.

T3 skin tightening uses thermal energy to stimulate collagen production, but does not break the skin. The treatment requires no anesthetic and is virtually painless. Any discomfort felt during the procedure will not remain after treatment is completed.

Some initial redness may be present, but there is no downtime associated with T3 skin tightening. In fact, it is entirely possible to come to our Reston or McLean office over your lunch break, receive this quick and effective treatment, and return to work to complete your day without any difficulties at all.
