Laser Skin Resurfacing
Has aging or too much time soaking up the sun left its mark on you? Wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots, and other skin blemishes are now reversible thanks to advanced laser skin resurfacing. This wildly popular aesthetic procedure uses light energy to produce controlled damage to your skin, promoting natural skin remodeling and collagen production.
Ablative vs. Non-Ablative
There are two types of laser skin resurfacing treatments: ablative laser skin resurfacing and non-ablative laser skin resurfacing (the Celebrity Peel™). Ablative laser treatment impacts the outer layers of skin, which leads to skin remodeling and an increase in collagen production. This treatment is great for treating visible signs of aging like deep wrinkles, acne scarring, and pigmentation. Ablative laser treatment requires longer recovery than non-ablative laser treatment, about 1 to 2 weeks.
Non-ablative laser treatments are less invasive than ablative treatment and only heats up the lower layer of skin without actually damaging it. This treatment stimulates your skin’s collagen production and is great for targeting fine lines and imperfections. Patients benefit from almost no downtime with non-ablative treatment. However, multiple sessions are usually necessary to achieve effects that are accomplished with just one ablative treatment.
Astanza’s DermaBlate Erbium:YAG laser delivers a full-range of skin resurfacing applications, both full ablative and light non-ablative, thanks to its adjustable pulse length and varying depths of treatment.
