Skin Rejuvination & Pigmentation

What is non-ablative laser rejuvenation?

Non-ablative skin rejuvenation uses a laser to improve the appearance of wrinkles, brown spots and minor scars by creating heat in the skin without injuring the surface of the skin. The heat generated by the laser promotes collagen production which causes the skin to tighten and look young and healthy. Non ablative lasers often are fractionated so they deliver heat into the skin through thousands of tiny, deep columns known as microthermal treatment zones with intervening normal untreated skin.

 

The fractional approach allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area was treated. This approach lessens the recovery period and reduces the number of complications that can occur. Multiple sessions are needed in most cases.

  • Avoid perfumes, deodorants and other potential irritants in treatment area.

  • Avoid taking aspirin and other blood thinners prior to treatment.

  • Most patients can return to work immediately after the procedure.

  • Redness caused by the treatment can be camouflaged by makeup without any negative effects.

  • The treatment area should be kept well moisturized.

  • Patients should avoid sleeping on the treated area to prevent prolonged swelling.

  • Cold compresses can be applied to alleviate pain.

  • Sun exposure should be avoided after the treatment. Broad spectrum sunscreens of at least SPF 30 should be applied daily.
