Aging and sun-damaged skin
How Does It Work?
This new technology uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin, which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities.
If you are looking to improve acne scars, wrinkles or sun damaged skin in a comfortable treatment with fast recovery, then you may be an ideal candidate. Most skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands. You should discuss your needs with your physician.
The treatments are typically done in a series of 1-4 treatments, spaced 3-6 weeks apart, depending on your needs. Your physician will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire.
After treatments, your skin will be more sensitive to ultra-violet light, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. You should always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
