Fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing uses hundreds of tiny high-precision microbeams to create narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation into the medium layers of the skin. During the natural healing process, new collagen is formed, thus blending scars and stretch marks and improving skin texture, wrinkles, and sun-damaged skin. The laser basically damages the skin deep enough to remind or teach it how to replenish and renew again, producing new collagen, which results in fewer wrinkles and less visible sun-damage.
What’s distinctive about this procedure is that the laser, unlike ablative, leaves the surface of your skin unharmed so there is no down time. The skin will continue to look and feel better over the course of the next few months. It is virtually painless and only takes about 30 minutes to perform.
