Lasers vary widely in type and application. The traditional carbon-dioxide (CO2) laser for ablative re-surfacing removes the upper layers of skin and requires a healing period of recovery. It is done under general anesthesia or IV sedation and local anesthesia. Recovery can require 7 to 14 days depending on the extensiveness of the skin re-surfacing done. This procedure generally produces the greatest degree of skin surface improvement of lines and wrinkles with the longest lasting results.

Ablative and non-ablative skin resurfacing stimulates the production of the proteins collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the dermis of the skin. Non-ablative (non-wounding) laser methods over the course of repeated treatments result in a thicker, tighter, and more youthful dermis with improvement of the surface appearance.

Non-ablative laser treatments are performed in a series of 6 or more sessions spaced two to three weeks apart to accomplish a wide variety of cosmetic improvements which include:

  • Hair Removal
  • Facial Rejuvenation - deminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Tightening of the skin
