Preparing For Your Treatment
What are Non-Ablative Laser Treatments?
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. They are less invasive than ablative treatments and work by heating up the targeted tissue, without actually destroying it.
What to Expect
The intensity and duration of your side effects depends on how aggressive the treatment is and your individual healing characteristics, but usually can last up to a few days after treatment.

Laser skin resurfacing is a facial laser treatment used to create a more youthful, healthy appearance. Resurfacing lasers can help to treat facial blotches, scarring, wrinkles, and fine lines, making them less noticeable.
Laser skin resurfacing works by removing layers of the skin and allowing for new skin cells to grow and heal. This allows for the reduction of these facial blemishes.
With our two laser devices and processes, laser skin resurfacing is an incredibly quick, easy, and non-invasive process. Spot treatments take about half an hour, while a full facial skin resurfacing treatment can take about 2 hours.
After the procedure, the doctor will bandage your face, and after 24 hours, you will have to clean the areas, apply special ointment and treat the affected skin. You may experience some swelling after the procedure, and this is completely normal. Additionally, you might continue to feel some slight itching and stinging up to 3 days after the procedure, and up until seven days after, you will notice dryness and peeling.
Overall, recovery from laser skin resurfacing takes between 10 days to 3 weeks – we recommend staying away from harsh cosmetics for a few months after the procedure and keeping it moisturized.
