How Non-Ablative Fractional Skin Resurfacing Works
Non-Ablative Skin Renewal utilizes fractional laser technology to deliver specialized pulses of energy into your skin and targets your unwanted wrinkles, stretch marks or scars without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Once the energy is absorbed into the skin your body’s natural healing process will begin creating new, healthy collagen and elastin in the area that was treated. Over the next few months you will see continued improvement in the smoothness and texture of your skin.

Non-Ablative Fractional Skin Resurfacing Procedure
Depending on the size of the area being treated, sessions typically take less than 30 minutes. First, you will be provided eye shields to protect yourself from the laser during treatment. The treatment will begin with the provider guiding the skin renewal handpiece over the treatment area. During this, the laser will be delivering energy into your skin. Depending on the care option we select, you may feel nothing during treatment or mild to moderate discomfort. Post-treatment instructions will be provided to manage pain if necessary. You may also experience some redness and/or swelling a few days after at the treatment site but this typically resolves by the third day. Follow-up treatment sessions should be scheduled 3-6 weeks apart if needed.
After the treatment, the gel will be removed, and a calming and repairing cream may be applied to your skin. Bandages and ointments are not needed due to the nature of the treatments being so minimally invasive. For a few days after your treatment, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn but can resume your normal day-to-day activities immediately following treatment.
