Ablative and Non-Ablative Laser Resurfacing
The maintenance of your skin (the largest organ) should be at the top of your To-Do list. So, invest in the latest generation of facial resurfacing and rejuvenation lasers. Below we have explained the different types of laser resurfacing. We can combine each treatment with ablative and non-ablative laser resurfacing.
Ablative lasers remove the top layer of your skin. In your treatment, a fractal laser treats a square-like grid on your face. The skin between the untreated micro-channels helps the neighboring skin to heal. As a result, a major benefit of these next-generation laser machines is the reduced downtime. Typically, ablative skin resurfacing patients may require several weeks out of work to heal. Ablative work can improve facial aging and deep or pitted facial scars. In addition, it offers significant results fast. Smartskin CO2 Fraxel is a micro-ablative laser treatment.
Non-Ablative lasers work by heating up the underlying skin tissue at the dermis, an inner skin layer. These lasers do not break the skin. As a result, the laser encourages collagen production, skin tightness, and reduced fine lines visibility. These treatments are best at improving skin texture and tone, and you may need a series of treatments. After practically no downtime, you can return to your normal routine. A non-ablative treatment, Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, treats sun damage, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone.
