Non-ablative Laser Resurfacing

What is Non-ablative Laser Resurfacing?

Non-ablative, fractional lasers deliver heat under the skin’s surface, without damaging the surface of the skin. Tiny columnar, microbeams penetrate into the dermis to eliminate old, pigmented tissue and tighten the skin from within. It is a non-invasive, quick solution for old scars, wrinkles, and other textural issues.

How does it Work?

Collagen and elastin make up the support structure in our skin. After age 30, we lose 1% or more of our collagen each year due to the natural aging process alone; this does not factor in sun damage and other lifestyle factors. Laser revitalization treatment uses powerful laser technology to refresh the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production. It works fast to minimize wrinkles and improve the appearance of the skin on various areas of your body, such as your neck, cheeks, hands, arms, and smooth away smokers’ lines around your mouth.

What to Expect

Unlike surgical face-lifts that require long recovery times, laser treatment is an alternative with less downtime, allowing you to recover in a few days with minimal discomfort or side effects.

Just one laser treatment can diminish the deepest lines — without surgery, with minimal downtime, and with long-lasting results.

Laser Revitalization for:

• wrinkles around the eyes (periorbital wrinkles)

• crow’s feet

• wrinkles around the mouth (perioral wrinkles)

• frown lines

• lipstick lines

• smokers’ lines

• facial wrinkles

Other areas of the body, such as hands, arms, and décolletage may also be treated.


How does it work?

Pulses of laser light reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the aging support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of smooth, youthful skin.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

If you have fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, on any area of your body including face, hands, and arms you may be a good candidate for a laser revitalization treatment.

How long does it take?

The procedure can be performed in as little as 30 minutes or less, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Does it hurt?

Your treatment provider may offer ways to make this a comfortable experience. Since everyone is different, and this depends on the level of treatment needed, it is best to discuss all of your option with your laser treatment provider.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on your individual case and the laser used, some people are satisfied after only one treatment session. Others may need additional sessions.

How quickly will I recover?

Recovery time is typically not long. However, since everyone is different, it is best to discuss with your laser treatment provider.

Are there any side effects?

Your treatment provider can provide individualized information on potential side effects with you.
