LASER SKIN RESURFACING
Some surgical skin resurfacing methods remove a major portion of the skin’s surface.While good results are eventually seen, the drawbacks include prolonged red and raw skin,longer downtime periods and a higher risk of infection. With Fractionated laser technology, the patient can expect great results without the side effects and downtime of traditional resurfacing procedures.
Fractional Ablative Skin Resurfacing
Fractional ablative resurfacing is a single-treatment procedure where a powerful laser creates tiny, microscopic columns in the skin. The healthy skin surrounding the columns helps them to heal within 2-4 days, and all redness healing after 10-15 days. The result from this treatment is noticeably tighter skin, less pigment, and visible improvement of your skin’s appearance. This treatment does require some downtime (about 7-10 days) and it is imperative that you stay out of the sun during this time.
Factional Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing
Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing offers both superior results and little to no downtime. Fractional microbeams penetrate deep into the epidermis and dermis for effective, long-term results. The fractional non-ablative approach stimulates quick healing with no long term redness. The patient can resume normal activities within a day or two and may only have some redness and minimal swelling.
