Smooth Skin Program
This program is a non-ablative 1,550 nm. fractional laser. This fractionated ablative laser breaks up its laser beam into a grid of tiny beams that create microscopic injuries to the top layer of skin. Because only a “fraction” of the skin is treated at one time, healing is more rapid and downtime is less. The micro-injuries stimulate new collagen and elastin production for skin remodeling, ultimately smoothing and evening outskin texture and tone.
Those receiving treatment should expect their skin to appear pink or red 3 - 5 days after the procedure. Some swelling and scab may also occur. It is important to apply the ointment after the treatment. In most cases, patients are fully recovered and be able to resume normal activities within 5 - 7 days depending on the area treated.
How long is it required to do the laser?
It takes approximately 15 - 20 minutes for the procedure (anesthetic cream may be applied about 45 minutes upon the treatment)
How often should it be done?
It can be done every 2 weeks until the results are satisfactory.
