Laser skin resurfacing is a safe and proven treatment for improving quality of skin issues such as pigment, fine lines and wrinkles. Laser Skin Resurfacing improves skin quality by removing the old top layers and pigmentation, as well as stimulating the collagen and elastin in the remaining deeper skin layer.

Laser Services FAQs

Ablative laser treatments are more aggressive, treating the entire skin surface. Non-ablative laser treatments are less aggressive, using a computerized grid pattern that leaves some of the skin in the treatment area untreated. Non-ablative treatments help with skin tone and texture with a shorter healing time. Ablative treatments are better for treating fine lines and wrinkles, but have a longer healing time.
