What is Ablative Resurfacing?
Improving Aging Skin
Ablative resurfacing works by delivering an intense wavelength of light to the skin, which removes the outer layers of aged or sun damaged skin. In addition, the laser stimulates the underlying skin, resulting in collagen formation and an improvement in wrinkles. As the lasered skin heals following the procedure, new skin forms that is smoother and tighter.
Ablative lasers remove the top layer of the skin and part of the sub-layer to remove damaged skin. Non-ablative fractional lasers (such as the Fotona 4D) keep the outer layer of skin in place, for faster healing and recovery. The body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin.
Ablative Resurfacing is performed by our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Jessie Cheung.
Ablative Resurfacing lasts from 30-minutes to 2 hours, depending on the intensity of the treatment.
