Non ablative skin rejuvenation is carried out using a laser to achieve a younger-looking, fresher, more even skin tone. It can treat wrinkles, age spots / dyschromia, sun damaged skin and minor scars. The laser works without injuring the skin, using heat to promote collagen production, resulting in tightened skin which looks healthier and younger.
Because the area is treated using a fractional laser and a fractional technique, this means that skin heals faster than with other techniques where the whole area is treated. Imagine firing a laser light beam through a sieve to cast a shadow over the skin. This would allow the laser to treat many areas where it hit the skin but leave untreated areas in between. This essentially is what fractionating the laser beam does. Typically down time is minimal ranging from 2 days to less than 1 week and treatments can be conducted across of a number of sessions to aid timely healing.
Improvement is gradual and can take several months to achieve the full effect.
