Frequently Asked Questions:
How does it work?
Ablative Skin Resurfacing uses fractional technology which causes controlled damage to the dermis and epidermis of the areas being treated, stimulating the body’s natural healing response.
What results can I expect?
You can expect two levels of results, immediate and progressive. Immediately after initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer and tone will start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next three to six months as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal. This is effective for skin tightening, acne and surgical scars, wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, improving skin tone and texture and stretch marks.
What to can I expect from the treatment?
Treatments are 30 min, there is moderate discomfort which is mitigated with a topical numbing cream and there is some downtime (similar to a sunburn, lasting 3 to 7 days). Skin resurfacing is a great treatment to combine with IPL and other anti-aging treatments, i.e. Botox and Filler. During your consultation, the appropriate treatment plan to achieve your desired results will be discussed with you.
