What is non-ablative skin resurfacing?
This treatment uses a fractional non-ablative laser to improve the tone and texture of the skin. At MedSpa 22, we use the Icon 1540 non-ablative fractional laser for our non-ablative skin resurfacing treatments. The treatment works by targeting unwanted pigmentation, scarring, or wrinkles and delivering pulses of laser energy to them without damaging the surrounding skin. The energy from the fractional laser penetrates the dermis and stimulating collagen and the body’s natural healing process, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.
One of the benefits of non-ablative skin resurfacing is that there is no downtime or recovery period associated with the treatments. Treatment sessions typically take 30 minutes, making it easy for patients to schedule treatments into their day without disrupting their daily routine.
Non-ablative skin resurfacing can be used to improve:
- Sun damage
- Scarring caused by acne
- Skin texture and tone
- Stretch marks
- Surgical and trauma scars
- Skin irregularities
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients typically need between one and three treatment sessions scheduled three to six weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Depending on your aesthetic goals and the condition of your skin, you may require more treatment sessions. We typically recommend at least three to five treatment session for patients interested in improving the appearance of stretch marks, acne scarring or other types of scarring.
Who is a candidate?
Our system is effective and safe for use on most skin types. During your consultation, our staff will review your overall health and skin condition and recommend the appropriate treatment plan to suit your needs.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime associated with non-ablative skin resurfacing treatments. Most patients can immediately return to work and other normal activities. We recommend you avoid excessive sun exposure following a treatment as laser treatments increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
What are the side effects?
Patients may experience some redness, swelling, or brown debris on the skin’s surface immediately following a treatment session. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve on their own. Side effects should subside within five days of treatment.
