Laser Treatment for non-ablative skin resurfacing



Are you looking for a way to improve the texture and appearance of your skin without undergoing surgery or experiencing a lengthy recovery period? If so, non-ablative laser skin resurfacing may be just what you need.

How it works

Non-ablative laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure using high-energy beams of light to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and stimulate collagen production for smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

During the procedure, a laser is used to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production, and promoting the growth of new skin cells. Unlike ablative laser treatments, which remove the outer layer of skin, non-ablative laser treatment leaves the surface of the skin intact, resulting in less downtime and a quicker recovery period.

Why we use non-ablative laser

One of the main benefits of laser treatment for non-ablative skin resurfacing is that it can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, without the downtime and recovery associated with traditional ablative laser treatments. The procedure is also effective for improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of scars and other skin imperfections. Additionally, non-ablative laser treatment is safe for all skin types, making it a popular option for individuals with sensitive or darker skin.

Expected result

The results of laser treatment for non-ablative skin resurfacing are typically gradual and progressive, with optimal results visible after several treatment sessions. Patients can expect to see an improvement in skin texture, a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and an overall improvement in skin tone and complexion.
