Home » Lasers » Fractional and Full Surface Ablation/Resurfacing

You don’t need surgeries or invasive procedures to rejuvenate your skin. Fractional and full-surface ablation/resurfacing laser treatments offer a non-invasive solution to address various skin concerns. Whether you want to reduce wrinkles, scars, or pigmentation issues, our advanced laser treatments can help you achieve smoother and younger-looking skin.

Revitalize Your Skin Without Surgery

Fractional and full-surface ablation/resurfacing are non-invasive laser treatments to revitalize your skin without surgery or extensive downtime. These procedures work by precisely removing damaged or aged skin layers, stimulating collagen production, and promoting new skin cell growth. Fractional ablation targets specific areas of your skin, leaving surrounding skin tissues untouched. Full surface resurfacing treats the entire skin surface, offering more dramatic results. Both options can effectively reduce wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation issues.

Fractional and Full Surface Ablation/Resurfacing Treats:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Sunspots and age spots
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Skin laxity
  • Stretch marks
  • Surgical scars
  • Enlarged pores

How It Works

Fractional Ablation
Fractional ablation is a laser skin resurfacing technique that creates thousands of microscopic treatment zones on the skin’s surface. It utilizes a laser beam to target water molecules in the skin’s cells, heating them to a precise temperature. This controlled thermal injury stimulates collagen and triggers the skin’s natural healing process. As the skin heals, it replaces old, damaged tissue with new, healthier skin, resulting in improved texture, reduced wrinkles, and a youthful appearance.

Full Surface Resurfacing
Full surface resurfacing is a laser skin treatment that involves the precise removal of the entire top layer of skin, known as the epidermis. This process utilizes a high-energy laser to vaporize the outer skin cells, exposing the fresher, smoother skin beneath. As the epidermis heals, it encourages collagen production and cell turnover, reducing wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation issues. The result is a rejuvenated complexion with improved tone, texture, and overall appearance.

Advantages of Fractional and Full Surface Ablation/Resurfacing:

  • Non-invasive treatment
  • Reduced downtime compared to traditional surgical procedures
  • Precise targeting of specific skin concerns
  • Stimulates collagen production for long-lasting results
  • Effective in treating a variety of skin issues
  • Minimal discomfort during and after treatment
  • Can be tailored to individual skin types and needs
  • Suitable for various areas of the body, including the face, neck, and hands
  • Minimal risk of scarring when performed by a skilled professional
  • Improvement in skin texture and tone
  • Enhanced overall skin appearance

What Is the Recovery Process Like?

After undergoing fractional or full surface ablation/resurfacing, you may experience some side effects. These can include redness, swelling, and a sensation similar to sunburn, which typically subsides within a few days to a week. Your skin may also peel or flake as it heals. It’s crucial to protect your treated skin from sun exposure during this time to prevent complications. Most people can return to regular activities within a week, though full recovery may take longer.

Results: Onset & Longevity

You’ll be pleased to know that the results of fractional and full surface ablation/resurfacing are noticeable within a few weeks. However, optimal results may require multiple sessions spaced weeks apart. These results are long-lasting, as the procedures stimulate collagen production, providing sustained improvement in skin texture and appearance for months to years. It’s essential to maintain proper skincare and sun protection to prolong and optimize the results.
