How do these treatments work?
A fractionated ablative laser is used to eliminate common cosmetic concerns created by aging. The concentration of the laser and the depth that the laser will penetrate into the skin will be determined by what you would like to accomplish for this procedure.
Every treatment starts with a consultation. When you visit us for your initial consultation, we will closely examine your skin. We will your medical history briefly as some conditions may be contributing to skin concerns. We want to help you improve the appeal of your skin. This is going to help you improve the way it looks.
When columns of skin are treated with the laser, newer skin will surface. The area near the column is going to release healing substances and growth factors. This means that brand new skin will be created.
